Thanks guys. I've been refining some of the lines and final priming. The temps here have been above 100 degrees for the last two weeks and since I paint outside, it only leaves a small window in the morning. Hope to post some progress soon. Also drawn up part of the flight deck and been looking at a couple of options how to do it.

Trying to work out the anchor hawse. I can't believe that something that is 3/16" in diameter has me scratching my head.

OK, here is a test of the hawsehole (the mounting is a bit rough, but it's just a test). I sunk it into the Trumpeter hull that I attempted to fix. It provides a nice comparison to the representation on the kit hull. My measurements are taken off the dimensioned drawings in the Maryland Silver book. I's say there is quite a difference along with the fact the Trumpeter has located it too high up. The bottom of the actual opening should be at the main deck level. I think the shape looks reasonable.

Nice replacement. The Trumpeter version is grossly over scale.
