Actually I only wanted to cut a new upper deck. To do this, I put the large 2mm polysterol sheet on the table, pushed the model to the edge and ...

Image

... must have been one of the active gale-force winds, I can't explain it any other way.

First look, everything went well. Second look, no, 2 windows are missing, stupid but no problem, I have already produced enough replacements.

But then ...

Image

... I had glued the struts for the elevation of the bow on a section of the upper battery deck shortly before. This, of course, was also loose. And when I tried to reattach it I noticed, :censored_2:, the hull is suddenly 2 mm wider than before !?!!

Image

The two upper decks were only put in without being glued in order to be able to take them out again for the installation of the window panes. But the gap on the side is clearly visible.

So I did what was only thought of much later, cut the "carriages" off the windows ...

Image

... and the upper 2 decks were succesively taken out and the culprit was discovered: the lower gun deck.

Image.

This was the only one glued in and was it broken and tilted and so could not flex back.

So I drilled some holes and used hooks to lever the deck back up ...

Image

... and re-glued it well.

In the meantime I found 6 more loose windows, but they could all be kept in situ, only one at the very front I had to glue in a replacement part.

Image

The other decks are now also back inside and I could continue.

Thank you gentlemen :-)

One already suffers as a model builder ;-)

And when I'm not doing such nonsense, I'm busy at the moment with the elevations of the sides. During the rebuilding in 1816 the high round bow was installed according to Seppings. Everything was first a cardboard template. Here is the immensely high new bow ...

Image

... then along the upper deck ...

Image

... and the built poop.

Image

Image

A face that only a mother could love - or a dafi ;-)

Then transfer of the masks to 2 mm polysterol ...

Image

... warm up this round nose part ...

Image

... and pre-bend it.

Image

But 2 mm polysterol doesn't quite want to go the way I want, even with heat, so I cold bend it over the edge of the table until it's nice & soft.

Image

And for further help I had already installed supports inside ...

Image

... and since I still have concerns, I also glued something on the outside to hold it up, no, it's not hawse-pieces, that's coming off again :-)


And somehow it was important now that I got the next parts done, just so for the sore soul ...

Image

Image

And now the worst part for me: patience to let it dry well!

After raising the bow and stern, it was time for the upper deck. To do this, remove the deck, fix the polysterol strip for the new bulwark with clamps ...

Image

... and scribe the curve of the lower deck with a blade. Then set the cut, put the deck back in, clamped the fitted bulwark piece again and scribed it with a block on the inside to have a uniform height above the deck. Then removed, cut the height cleanly and ...

Image

... glued in place. You can hardly see it, there are little wooden blocks glued under the clamps on the outside of the hull, just like on the bow, so that it is flush on the outside.

And slowly it's becoming something :-)

Image

The elements on the deck are still orientation aids made of cardboard and not dimensionally adjusted, but you can already see where it's going.

Image

The raised bow ...

Image

... the quarterdeck with Nelson's sloop under the poop ...

Image

... the small guard house, behind it two flag boxes still missing and probably the biggest surprise for the most of you ...

Image

... the forecastle over the forecastle, the fore-fore-castle so to speak.

Image

Hardly visible from the outside ...

Image

... unless someone is standing on it :-)

Used the nice weather to sand outside. Good for the tinkering cave, the nose and the soul.

Just enjoy.
