Hi Bob, just catching up with your wonderful work that you are doing on this paper ship model.
Doing all of those cannons & rigging for them must have been a blast!
The copper plating on the hull looks excellent.
Keep up the great work, I love it!

Thanks Greg, I always like to hear from you and Dave.

Here's a quick shot today. Most of the cannon are now rigged with the exception of the in-haul
portion of the training tackle. I'm working on that now even though most will not be visible when completed.

Every now and then I take a break from a job like rigging the cannon and work on small
details, shown here are the added steps and fenders.



Bob (back to my paper)

Bill and Mario, thanks for your posts.

Mario, there will by no rigging. Refer back to page 2, this will be a hull only model, I
already have too many fully rigged ship models around the house.

I love doing the rigging but those models take up way to much room and I live in a fairly small home.

It's hard to believe the ship is paper. The cutout and glueing must be tedious!
You are doing a Beautiful job!

Russ and Dave, thanks for your posts.

I will soon be closing up with the addition of the upper deck so I though I should grab a quick
shot as it stands right now. I have a few more hatches to install and a few more details.

Wow- looks great.

Bob, did you build a special "cradle" to keep the ship in place to work on?

Thanks for your comment Carl. Yes, there is a cradle included in the paper parts but as stated
back on page 4, I used those parts as patterns and made a nicer cradle from scrap cherry I had
on hand. It works quite well.

I see it doesn't show in my photos, here's a better shot.

The actual cradle is much darker than it looks in this photo and I did not notice those marks
of saw burn before seeing this photo. Oh well, it happens. I'll try to find time to sand them out.

Bob,

I like the rows of cannons and associated details. The cannon in the captains quarters has me picturing one in my bedroom to take care of noisy neighbors in the night.

Sorry Bob, my mistake. I referred to page 4, and you indeed mentioned the cradle already.

I shall submit to whatever appropriate punishment you decree at this time. [:-dunce]
