Well, there is nothing to say I guess. It's just wonderful. And your craftsmanship. You're true blacksmith.. I'm enjoying to watch this build and this is a confess I'm a litte jealous :) 

 

Good luck with that! 

 

Cheers, Bugra.

Thank you gentlemen for your kind words.

 

Today I will show to the gun ports lids a special detail.
The lids in the area of ​​bugs are doubled for protection from the anchor with planks.

The anchors are made of brass.

Thanks all!

Meanwhile, all gunports lids were fitted into the ports.
Only the last pair is still to be finished. They are for the gun port in the bow on the port side.
This gun port is a special case, because of the rounding of the bow.
The fit of this cover halves at this place requires special attention.
This couple also receives a dropfront as a protection against the armature.
