  1. To gorington: The caulking is simulated with black paper glued to the planks. Steering whell - the quarter deck is finished.
  2. Thank you Nils. I added some small items on the qurter deck, now remains the last item which will be placed on the quarter deck - stering wheels.
  3. I forgot to answer the Tigersteve´s question - brass blackening is made with blackening agent for Tiffany technology (http://www.vensy.cz/vensy/eshop/12-1-Tiffany-technika-cinovani/31-2-Chemie-pro-cinovani/5/345-Patina-cerna-tiffany-technika), warm solution 2:50 (water). The next one is binnacle.
  4. Thank you guys for your nice comments and all likes. Carronades are completed and mounted on the deck. The quarter deck is starting to fill up nicely.
  5. Thank you guys for all the likes and nice comments. To Ondras71: You are not right, there are many other builders much better as me on this forum. Swivel guns and carronades - it remains to make the carriages for carronades, the swivel guns are ready for the mounting (will be done later).
  6. Quarter deck breastwork with hammock cranes and netting. I spend the next few days at the lathe - I have to make swivel guns and carronades.
  7. Thanks Greg . Cat blocks, fish davits, cavel blocks, forecastle breastwork and belfry - the forecastle deck is more or less completed.
  8. Sorry guys, due failure in MSW I was able to post only some pictures in the last post, no text. Now is all OK and I continue with installation of gangboards and ladders.
  9. Thank you Albert and Alex. Forecastle and quarter deck planksheer is installed now (including timberheads).
  10. Thank you guys for all nice comments and likes, they are like a new blood for my body. I completed the treenailing, next part of the build will be forecastle and quarter deck planksheer.
  11. Thank you druxey. Deck planking is done. It remains only treenaling.
  12. Thank you to all for kind words and likes. Preparation works for deck planking - instalation of waterways, margin planks, forecastle and quarter deck bulwark planking.
  13. Thank you Allan. So, when I was in brass work, I decided to finish the chimney. I had to combine soldering with tin and silver, which is an incredibly inappropriate combination. Here you can see the result.
  14. Thank you to all for comments and likes. To sailor 123456789: I have the same problem to understand this function. The chain pums and main jeer bitts are so close each other and there is no space for manipulation. Above that I made one small mistake, the main jeer bitts are positioned behind the deck beams (in plans are the main bitts under deck beam). Fortunately on the main jeer bitts end only two ropes. To John Allen: It is secret. But whoever seeks, he finds it. The last item on the main deck - brake pumps. They are installed temporarily now. Final fixation will be after de
  15. Thank you guys. To sailor123456789 - maybe help you tne next pictures. All parts are now installed on the deck, I added the rest of deck beams and the quarter deck is prepared for planking.
  16. Thank you to all for very nice comments and likes. I prepared some parts to later installation on the main deck - main jeer bitts, main topsail sheet bitts and chain pumps. It remains colouring and blackening before installation.
  17. According to the information that I obtained, only the upper capstan was used for weighing the anchor. The lower capstan was propably used only for the control of messenger rope and in case of upper capstan damage (only exceptionally). In this case, it was necessary to remove the pillars and ladder (both were removable).
  18. Thank you very much guys. Denis - the red frame in front of the stove is called riding bitts. Citation from the Peter Goodwin´s book The Construction and Fitting of English Man of War: These large timbers acted as securing point for cables which held the ship while riding at anchor. And why is the stove so close to the riding bitts - I have no idea. Some new parts - ladders.
