I think the gun deck is going to take a long time


Thanks John this ship and type of construction has been a dream of mine for a very long time. I just thrilled to have such a loving wife and in-laws. They where the one that got this kit for me for my 34th birthday.

Since, the last time that I posted Iíve got all the laters from the gun deck to the birthing deck complete and Iíve started working on all the bow details. The letters where really easy to construct, just not so easy to get out of my latter jig! The galley and two of the four chain bits are finished. I just need to get the other two done and all the rest of the bow detailing, then Iíll start moving aft withe more of the details.
