Frank and Jerry, thanks for posting.

Frank- I have seen that guy's paper models before but I am no where even close to his paper stuff, unbelievable!!
And like Jerry I don't have that many file folders.

Thanks Fred. I know, I get bogged down trying to keep up with all the stuff on this forum. I
really hate doing a ship model on this RR forum but moving to this category gave me an excuse.

here she is with more planking applied.

Have no fear Bob. We all love modeling whether it's rails, trails or sails.

Hey Sarge, you're doing some fine model building and you have an interested group of model railroaders following you. Keep it coming.

Thanks for commenting, all of you.

I added the keel and the bow and stern timbers and applied the coppering. This photo is
cheating a bit, I have some touch-up to do and then the whole other side of coppering.

Now here's an observation. When making a paper model it's nice to have all the detail
already printed but when you mess up and ruin a part, you are sort of up the creek without
the proverbial paddle. This does not apply to the paper models that you download and print
out because in them you can always print out a new part. Please do not ask how I know this.



Bob

Bob, with each new layer you add, she just gets better looking!
I don't think I could ever build a ship this way, I hate doing paperwork!

Bob, you are making great progress. With your skills, you'll be able to replicate the part with no problem... It is looking very ship shape now with paint on her'... Remember the old antic. 'When stuck in a hole, keep digging'...

Thanks for your posts Greg and Ted, your encouragement moves the process along.

I finished applying the copper sheathing to the other side and added the frieze work along the
tops of both sides.

Since the next steps will require that the upper decks be in place I must return to work
on the cannons. That is because once these decks are in place will not be able to reach
half the guns.
