  1. Completion of gun-carriages, now all that remains is to attach the cannon barrel.
  2. To Dowmer - all cannons are made by hands (it means with no CNC feature or replicator) Preparation of parts for the production of gun-carriages.
  3. Making of guns, it remains to complete the rear of the guns.
  4. To claybaker and garyshipwright - These milling cutters are manufactured by a number of manufacturers in the world, so it does not matter which manufacturer you choose. There are several of these manufacturers on aliexpress. I myself chose the "Chinese variant" because it is significantly cheaper and will do the same service as more expensive milling cutters. Installation of quarterdeck deck beams.
  5. To G. Delacroix - thanks for the info, I made the new one items with no wedges To garyshipwright - I am using "10 Degree 0.1mm Tip Carbide CNC Bits Flat Bottom Milling Cutter V Shape" (https://www.aliexpress.com/item/852725456.html) for most of CNC 3D carvings. Question about tutorial - I am so sorry, making a video tutorial would be too time consuming and my knowledge of English is minimal. I continue with the assembly of the capstans.
  6. Thank you guys for all likes and comments. I understand that for some people, the use of CNC machines is a somewhat controversial topic. On the other hand, I remember how I started modeling about 40 years ago with a hand saw and a set of files. Today, no one dares to use various electrical devices that make it easier for us modelers to work. From this point of view, the CNC machine is just another evolutionary step. To garyshipwright: I am using VCarve Desktop. I am starting work on main capstan parts - some pictures from production.
  7. To PeteB: I used the black translucent paper for the caulking. The last stem decorations are added. All carvings are made with CNC milling maschine with small manual corrections.
  8. To Hubac´s Historian - Thanks for compliment. I still have some rest at the stern - decorations.
  9. Thank you Alex M, I have to say I learned many things from you. Forecastle and quarter deck beams preparation - hatchway openings, capstan steps and mast wedges.
