Currently working on the transom and rudder assembly.... well if I could find the rudder assembly. ! Anyone aware of how the rudder is attached? It looks like  I will have to make the assemblies from scratch. Is this right or am I missing something? nothing surprises with this kit..... Quite challenging but perfect covid project..... stay safe everyone... JM

Backer...... Thankyou for your reply.... Looked everywhere but no rudder assemblies at all.  I did find an online shop in Toronto where I have purchased rudder assemblies (Gudgeons & Pintles )    https://www.castyouranchorhobby.com/Category/gudgeons_pintles

 

They will need modifying but better that than making them from scratch.  Thanks you again for the picture and information.

Just to finish your craftmanship is outstanding.......    Stay safe.   JM

Nice looking kit.  Good job on the planking. I bought a Billings Wasa in the 70's as a teenager. It too was single-planked, with cheap printed decks including hatches, far less nice than yours, and what did I know about it anyway?  My planking was so-so. I remember cursing trying to pin them into the balsa blocks at the bow.  There was no internet then with advice and examples.

 

When I got to the point where the next step was "Use the two balsa blocks provided to carve two lions" I decided I was out of my league.  I threw the hull out years ago but I STILL have the fittings kit! I've never dared try another wooden kit, although I did make several RC kits and a couple of scratch builds. Then off to University and never touched a ship model for 35+ years.

 

Looking forward to seeing your progress!

Ian, thanks for the comments.... this is the most difficult kit I have done  and I can see why you gave up on it. There are still a number of issues with the guidelines and the drawings but I have found that the help I get from the site is fantastic. The kits are much better now so try a wooden ship again and let it rip !!!!  Take care and stay safe. JM
