Rattlesnake by selittle - Model Shipways - 1:64

Recommended Posts

I started this build four or five years ago. We moved across country and haven't lived in a place I could set up shop until recently so am now outfitting a new shop while I restart this project. Many pieces on the bulkheads broke in the move so I basically started by glueing all those back together. I also just added the aft filler blocks and am roughing them in. post-22695-0-18417100-1449118368_thumb.jpegpost-22695-0-18007900-1449118391_thumb.jpegpost-22695-0-13908300-1449118415_thumb.jpeg

Started working on the forecastle.  Adding covering boards and railings.


Also added timber and knights heads


and started shaping stern filler blocks.


Am going to start planking the deck under the forecastle next before I lose access.  All seems to be going well but I am finding the instruction booklet to be mostly useless.  For instance, there is no mention of the size of deck planks so one has to measure based on the plans, which is fine, unless you're a complete noob and have no idea what you're doing!
