Hello all, I thought it about time to give a building update, gone a bit slow since I started having lost our old dog and getting a lab pup who is a year old now and a lot quieter I now have more time to spend on the build,I constructed the hull, plank on frame hollowed out bow and stern, and after endless coats of paint I finished it, then decided to try making some fittings, made one windlass and ten cargo winches, then when I finished them and the hull had been left awhile I noticed a few minor blemishess so I decided to do some local spotting in a fatal mistake, as a minor blemish ended up rubbing down and respraying the hull all round above the waterline using a different brand of paint, the result being unsatisfactory as a number of problems arose, I shall leave it till the warmer wheather before I respray it, which leaves me doing sub assembly work ie: forward bridge, shelter deck, hatches etc.I have put up a few pictures which does not do the hull justice as I do not have a camera only a mobile phone camera.
Regards Gretaston.
