Yes Marco, but Ive got no reason to hurry up
Approximately 80% of the railing is finished ( as I mentioned I have to play with each piece )




But this railing is so strengh I can hold the whole ship by it

The ship has a little better look I hope The gallion looks as I wanted also - is quite different as on other models of La Couronne is.



More photos of the ship:





I have to finish some improvement on the bow and then Id like to start the armament making ( I hope )

Jan

Nailing the Railing...,

Hi Jan,

I guess you've "nailed" the rail down! It really dresses the model well and your method insures that it won't be knocked off further down the road during the build...,

Several cannons are made

All of them are made from paper and they are paintend in bronze - theres any source what they were made from. There are several light culverings on the upper decks of course - Ill place them there when I stop to turn the ship upside down.

Several photos:
