This looking nice....now the USS Perry, no longer the USS Putty!

 

Cheers!

Thank you! I hope once I finish this model nobody who visits my office thinks to read the build log and expose my various learning experiences on this one....

This weekend I made some progress on the Perry after a little break. 
 

I started by cutting the lower masts to length and assembling the various components. The laser cutting is well done so it when together rather fast.

Next I glued down and rigged the cannons and carronades. It actually took quite a bit longer than I anticipated but I am happy with the results! Still a little more to do on the forward cannons rigging though.

I also spent some time just organizing the litany of cast fittings so I could stay on top of things. 
 

slow but steady progress! :)

I spent most of the weekend making great progress on the Perry! 
 

I installed the pintles and gudgeons on the rudder as well as finished rigging the final two cannons.

I next assembled and painted the bowsprit and bow components as well as the bow jib pole. 55E00F4B-DA5B-45BC-838E-2A91A3DF65E3.thumb.jpeg.982a946b6fdbc8bd2802a0a7d9cd1809.jpeg
 

I also managed to shape and paint all of the wooden rigging components. I also assembled the masts.

Next up will be rigging and more rigging! 
 

I am very happy with how this model is turning out :)

Some progress today on the Perry! 
 

Installed the deadeyes on the ship as well as the shrouds and back stays for both main and fore mast. Getting the lanyards even such that the dead eyes were level and shrouds taught was a time consuming endeavor.

Made quite a bit of progress today on the upper shrouds and installing the yards!

Needed to improve a clamp for the yards…

Still haven’t tied off any of the lines yet as I am waiting until all are installed to ensure they can be tightened together.

The view out of your window is just slightly less impressive then your ship. Both beautiful. 

She's really coming together.

This is one of Bluejackets newer kits...color me impressed.

I finished the ratlines and a number of other small details and hung the flag! Although I need to add a number of rope coils I am calling her finished for now since I am moving next week and she needs to get placed in my office for safe keeping. 
 

Overall so incredibly happy with how the Perry turned out. I learned so much on this build and am glad that the she didn’t turn out as the USS Putty! 
 

Would really recommend this kit to someone looking to improve their skills.
