Dripaj Posted December 14, 2015 Share #1 Posted December 14, 2015 (edited) This is my first build log ever. Since English is not my first language it will probably be amusing reading. I bought the kit second hand sevral years ago. Partly because it´s a nice looking ship with a limited amount of strings and partly because it has the same name as my eldest daughter. I started building the ship 7 years ago but a divorce and a new kid caused a long break Before i could resume. Making slow progress. Since I have a Little daughter of 4 I haven't a lot of time to spare. I have more or less finished the hull and deck fittings. Substituted almost all of the stuff except the gratings which I modified with a base and new coamings. The supplied windlass is way off. It is a hundred year to early. The bilge pumps have the same problem. I think the deck houses are too simplified. The gun carriages is a shame. It is ok on a toy. I made new ones from scrap wood. The wheels were made with a layer of 0.75 mm plasticard as a base with thin veneer strips on the outside. New anchor stocks with hammered iron thread.
