    Well the plan almost worked. Soaking the paper first and letting it dry caused the parts to shatter when I tried to cut them out. Good job I only did one set... 0.5mm thk plastic sheet from a food container to the rescue. I cut out the parts and stuck them each side of the sheet with thin super glue. I have left on a tab here just so I can pick the dam thing up. Also worked on the bow and what ever that part of the deck is called. Still a lot of filling and sanding to go here yet.
  9. nice work, think its a teeny weeny bit bigger than my build.

    OK so have set myself in creating a prominent feature missing out of the kit. Anchors. Luckily I have several thousand pounds worth of 3D CAD available to me. So have created a model of an Anchor. I measured the thickness of the paper at 0.1mm which results in sticking 12 of these together to get the correct depth. Plus there are 4 anchors. I intend to flood the paper with thin super glue before cutting the parts out. Anchor will be 9.5mm wide by 8.5mm deep and 2mm thk. I will use Ø0.5mm brass rod to join them together. Well that's the plan

    Got a bit more completed on the gun deck this weekend, though I think I went a bit OTT ...... Afraid Im not the best photographer on the planet... Each cannon is made up of 5 pieces 3mm x 2mm x 0.5 thk card for the base 2.5mm x 2mm x 0.5 thk card for the step up Ø0.6mm x 3mm brass rod for the cannon and x2 0.5mm x 0,5mm x2mm lg down each side of the cannon. (Remember the overall size of this is only 40mm x 25mm x 4mm) A couple of coats of paint later with a coating of Johnstons clear shadows are Citadel dark earth wash, raw umber oil paint for the deck, burnt umber to represent the grating and black for the open hatches. Ummm tell me again why we do this. Not much to see through the main hatch. Note to self. Touch up the white on the walls before attaching to the hull.
