  1. Thank you. The gratings are almost done now. Two of them have to dry over night, I will complete them tomorrow. I sanded them down to almost 3/64" now. Twice one of the strips Fell out, so I had to work very careful. I also had to increase the hight of the rabbet for a good fit in the coamings. So well designed! Thank you Chuck!! Matthias
  2. Thank you all for the likes and comments, I proceeded with the rudder, wich was so incredibly well designed by Chuck. Just following the step by step instructions She loves doing the fiddly things and her eyes are better than mine anyway... Not much left to do, and I can turn the hull back over and mount the rudder in its place. Matthias
  3. Hi all, I added the coamings and made the planking of the deck. That was a nice work to do.
  4. This model will be very impressive with such carvings. Excellent work Jack, congratulation!!!
  5. Hello Everybody, I finished the captains cabin rear gallery with the installation of the rudder trunk and the benches. For the small panels between the windows, I made small ebony decoration strips as framing. First picture is the rudder trunk befor installation: Here you can see the Captain Sir C. Passaro is giving order for the next work to do The paneled front of the bench were glued against a curved template, to follow the curved edge of the flooring. And the finished arrangements:
  6. Hello everybody, I made the checker floor for the captains cabin. I wanted it like on the pictures on the captains cabins: First thing was to provide the stripes and cut them without breaking them. Next step was to stick them upside down on a tape. after that was done, a veneer template, wich had the size of the later flooring was glued to it upside down. Afterwards the edges were cut and sanded in shape and the surface was polished. Her you see the flooring on the model:
  7. I glued the panel to the model now and added the sliding door. Next will bet the port side panel.
  8. The next thing for me to do is the panels and flooring of the captains cabin. I wanted to use my ivory for the panels and started with the starbord panel. I made a base from a thin veneer and cut out door and gunport in the right position. Then I glued small strips of veneer onto it, for the placement of frames and panels. The ivory parts were cut and profiled on the saw and afterward sanded an glued on the base. Here you see the result. My material will be enou
  9. I made the inboard planking of the bulwarks, and of course forgot to insert the little shells in the second layer, I inserted them in the first layer. So I have do drill the holes in the right place and somehow create the notch between them. After painting everything, I will continue with the paneled captains cabin. Matthias
