Frank, if I had laid the wood grain horizontally instead of vertical I don't think I could have been able to bend around the back corners.

Carl B, I am interested to see how this will turn out also. There might be more long pauses as I figure things out.

So, the cockpit sides are formed and made extra tall on purpose to let me trim the bottom to fit.

drew out and cut the port & starboard cockpit seats. put some supports and a front on the port one to see if I want a front.
pics:






work going forward on the starboard seat.

when everything has been trimmed and ready to glue down I will mimic a wood grate to fit the deck of the cockpit out of .010" styrene.

as it seems everything is still working out as hoped .. onward...

Bob, thanks for stopping by and yes it is turning into quite the journey I wasn't expecting it to be.

have both cockpit seats made and made the deck grate. I used a scrape piece of 0.010" styrene that was big enough to practice on before the actual grate. Decided on scale 2" holes on 4" centers. Could not figure out a method to square out the holes for a teak grate so will leave as is. Thought about a iron one but figured that might be too hard for long term standing, so will be painted to represent natural teak.

need to shape the grate to it's final shape.

now on to the deck beams around the cockpit.

and the journey continues...

Phil, just catching up here with your progress on your ship, and I must say it looks like it's coming along very nicely!
I think the best models are the ones that tax our brains & test our skills as craftsman.
Keep up the great work!
