the balusters for the balcony outside captains quarters, in order to make them solid, i have inserted pins inside balusters and pinned them down the deck.

working with cannons

first I had to create patina for the barrels, I had to create cariages from scratch, since Artesania Latina is providing them with metal cast

Artesania instructions provides the crate in one piece (like the one on the poop deck), I have decided to split it in two pieces, it looks better

I have done the same with the crate on the main deck, I have split it in 4 sections, and I have left one open to place the ladder. The boat is going to be placed right above, so the details of the main deck (ladder, barrels, led light) will not be seen much.

Some pictures from deck, before placing cannons5a60c501ca92f_deckd1.thumb.JPG.22116a763cf6ebe4794dba6f4aade9d0.JPG

 

right under the cabin, are the batteries  hidden

I have decided to divide the crate at the main deck in 4 parts, and leave one open, so along with the led light, the interior with the ladder and barrels will be visible, even after the installation of the boat right above the crates

I have added pillars to support front deck

Wow. Very nice job. I normally do not go beyond what kit provided and recommends. You are an artist.

Its about time to test LED lights inside decks, with daylight and camera shot, are looking green, actually are yellowish

My goal is to point the decks (lower, main, front and captain's quarters) have rooms, not just the wall and a closed door.5afbfcd6bb8e0_001ledtest.thumb.jpg.ee3776f2b2c0e0676f4709001f899cc7.jpg

 

with little effort, from the open windows at stern gallery you can take a glance at Captain's quarter furniture....5afbfcda16d7d_002ledtest.thumb.jpg.b0a29d1aa6c5aed3922a275898647a5c.jpg

Very nice build. I wish I found your log earlier. You have so many clever ideas - I could have included some into my build.

I noticed that you put the hinges for the rudder upside down. With this setup the rudder would just fall off the hinges:

Hi I was going to say the same myself.

Also the life boat is the same.

Another build has done the same thing that I pointed out to him.

Artesania Anchors where silver, so I decided to paint them. I used light gray for primer, and after 24 hour drying, I used metalic color, gun metal.

metalic color have the advantage to "shine" it with a shoft clothe and give a realistic view.

I have to make some adjustments in order to install stern lantern. I have already placed a red led at the stern, but I have to replace the bottom part of lantern and drill a hole in order to pass through the led. I have decided to replace it with a carved wood.

Starting shaping....
