Today I have been working on different things,

I made the cross tree on top of the Samson post, I cut into the top and fitted a brass section, this has holes drilled in it at each end that will carry a block and tackle, the bracing are made of lime wood.

Viewed from the stern, the p/e ladders and handrails have been painted. The porthole has been changed to a sunken one in to the casement, it now looks smaller.

Hi Guys, I am going to show you how I fit my casement guns.

This is an overall shot of the ship, but you can see where the casement guns are to be fitted, 7 in all on this side, one at the stern, but that will be later.
Attachment:

The barrels were made by Steve Nuttal and are fitted in to some round plastic piping.

In the picture on the second gun, you can see a white piece of plastic, this is cut around the piping top and bottom, and glued in place, this allows the gun to move round and not be static.

The first gun casement has been fitted out, and covered in litho plate,

Hi Guys, just a small one tonight.

This is the timber store, it is located on top of the blacksmith shop, this was built of litho plate and strengthened with brass rod underneath, it is filled with lengths of timber,

The coaling davit is fitted, it was made from 20 year old spruce, well seasoned, it was square and I carved it to shape, then made the round fittings out of brass and litho plate. The small support is made out of litho and is super glued in place above the door.

Hi Guys, its davits to night on the stern superstructure.

The davits are made out of solid brass rod, filled to shape and bent. At the top end a slot was cut and a double ended ring was glued in. At the bottom 2 pieces of plastic rod was fitted and a foot in plastic fitted to each one.

Just a few photo's tonight.

I have been looking at the decks, on some RN ships steel decks were scrubbed, polished and oiled, giving a black look, so 2 decks have had that treatment,

Hi Guys, I am rigging the large boat boom tonight.

First I had to make more pulleys, this time only single ones. The Samson post had to have a fitting made to fit around the top pulley, this is the starting point of the rig.

This gives a clearer view with the superstructure lifted off and turned around.

As you can see there are 2 separate lines, one controls the lifting of the boom, the other the lifting of the working end, the hook.
The ropes on the deck will be attached to pulleys and capstans later, when made.

Hi Guys, I have been doing the sights on the battle bridge, handrails and range finders.

The very bottom part is the bottom cut from a WEM tin of paint, with a rim of litho plate super glued to it. On top a brass tube drilled though and a piece of round plastic flattened slightly and pushed through.

Next some Milliput mixed together and shaped into a dome, also the end of the sights filled in.
