Weekends are the only time that i have to work on models or paint watercolors and i was fortunate to be able to put the first layer of the hull on. It will be covered with strips to give the planked hull look as Doris used to do so well with her fantastic sailing ships. I also laid on the lower knuckle templates. More work to come with the upper knuckles. I have planned to do the casemate octagonal but i made a templete for a square gundeck and casemate.
