Lilla Dan by philo426 - Billing Boats - Finishing a partially completed model

Recommended Posts

nice........looks like the hull was well done :)    hopefully you got all the parts to finish her.   I haven't ordered this one yet........but I have been tempted to.    being a Billing Boats nut.........I'd love to follow along.   if you can,  try to break the rub rail free at the bow and drop it down equally along the bulwarks........only thing I would change ;)

your doing some interesting work on this one :)    the vents are a nice touch.........you probably should add two bob stays from the dolphin striker that will locate to each side of the bow.   they will complete the support for when you do the fore stays.  do you have all the plans for her?   if your missing either of them,  they can be downloaded from Billing USA

the ship's boats can be done either way.  if you leave them like this,  you could do the rigging for the davits and tie them off to cleats,  affixed to either the bulwarks or the cap rails.  to create the pulley assembly,  rig two blocks with hooks on them and attach them to eye bolts on the cap rails.  on some boats or ships,  you might even see them in an X pattern.   she's look'in really good :)
