The ship is really looking good. Especially all the detail all the end.

Bob, she's coming along really nice. Please don't tell me you're making the belaying pins from paper.

Bob and Frank, thanks for your postings.

Frank, no, the belaying pins are plastic, found in my old scrap box. I think at the end
of this build I will list all the details that are not paper even though they are in a
very small proportion to the paper. I must say that each of these details are provided
as printed paper parts, I just decided to use other materials. However, in the case of
belaying pins, the kit seems to suggest using wire pieces and then applying thick paint to
form the handle ends.

Bob

You’d be laying down on the job if you didn’t do your best even on the small details like belaying pins.

Now you have a use for those old almost dried up bottles of paint.

Thanks Mike. Do you have those old almost dried up paints too? I guess we all do to some extent.




Now I have the deadeyes and deadeye straps in place. Most of the old hull models have that
little bit of rigging in place for some reason, I guess it looks better than plain, I think so too. Most of
those old models have stub masts in place too so I added those.

Hi Bob,
Being a landlubber I had no idea what a belaying pin was. Had to look it up and learned something new.
The ship is looking FANTASTIC!

Bob,

I agree; for some reason it looks better with stubs and bits of rigging.

Bob,

I spent some considerable time looking back at the structures you made for your Lower Paxton and Northport Layout. Those models provide much inspiration. Especially all the time you spend making excellent details. One could look and be in awe for hours, days, weeks, months, years, and never be bored !! And of course this ship model is no exception. Your inception of expert detailing is truly amazing, and out of paper !! WOW !!

Walt, Dave, Mike, and Rich, thanks for your comments.

I'm now working on 3 separate projects as details for the ship model. I must say that
there are printed paper parts in the kit to make all of these but I have chosen to use
other materials. I did not like the looks of the paper parts or I do not have the skills
to use them to make good looking details.
They are all in the unfinished state:

1. twelve swivel gun barrels carved from fancy toothpicks.

2. two ship's lanterns, parts turned from Renshape, a tooling resin.

2. two anchors made from styrene.



Bob

Interesting things you're doing, Bob. I had to do a Google search for Renshape to see what it was.

Bob, just wandering if the kit has stanchions for the quarter deck bulwarks? They look very fragile as they are now.
Still hard to believe this is paper and cardstock! Very well done!

Jerry, George, and Phil, thanks for posting.

Phil, no, just several thicknesses of card stock to stop the shot.

So, should we call her “Old Paper-sides”?
