HMS Badger 1778 [1:100, test model for WAK]

Hello everybody,
I have just started a new model, HMS Badger, Nelson's first ship. She was a "colonial" brig, bought in 1777. Nelson took command on the 1st of Jan 1778 and was transferred to Hinchinbroke on the 19th of June 1779.
The model will be made "in standard".
First pictures of the frames and the hull:


Right side planks are strengthened with 0,5 mm cardboard, but I was not satisfied with the final effect, so on the left one I prepared "fals" planks made of 0,5 mm cadboard...

... and then I add the final layer...



Best
Tomek

Thank you gentelmen!
There is one horrible mistake you can see on the fourth thumbnail. The stern is badly rotated clockwise. It happened, because of round shape of this part. When you look at it from the front the mistake is unnoticeable. Only back view shows the rotation. Left side is much higher (about 2 mm, in real it is 20 cm!!!) I didn't predict it.

I made next details. The wheel is not attached yet, but unfortunately is too small. I'm making the next one.
