I know we have just had Michael's excellent build, but I managed to pick up the wood deck from Sovereign Hobbies, the guys there have just started stocking them, and were interested how they fit, so I promised them a picture.

The Kit.



The Deck.



Keel laying is planned for tomorrow, might be a day or two before the pics get posted.

Cheers

I'm on board too - it is fun to see what different modelers do with the same kit!

Here we go, as promised

The Deck unpacked, it also includes the maindeck railings, and few other etched details.



Some tidying up done on the deck components ready to take the deck.



First prop shaft on, no positive locations, just engraved lines.



all the shafts, rudder and bilge keels in place, the bilge keels went on surprisingly easily using a little Tamiya quick setting glue.




Fo'c's'le & Quarterdeck parts fitted, along with the bulkheads, the forward bulkheads did need a little fettling, but went down in the end.



central deck section fitted.



Hull sprayed Halfords red primer, which will be the anti fouling colour.

More after the weekend,

Si

Rapid progress. You'll find the fit of pieces pretty good in general. I think HobbyBoss did a good job on this kit.

cheers

Thanks Russ,

well once I get in the zone!

The separately moulded bilge keels really work, and they fit. (Tamiya extra thin quick drying cement was very useful in making that easy)

I note I forgot to post the last photo, this weekend's update shortly.

Firstly, the missing photo from the last update.



The upper hull sprayed XF53, I might be wrong but looks a good match to me.

Fo'c's'le deck brush painted dark grey, needs a wash yet.



Boot topping painted, and all the masking removed.



Artworx Deck prepped for fitting, all the unwanted bits picked out.



and fitted.



All three sections down.



Some nice etched parts need to go down too.

Building up the superstructure next,

Cheers

Si
