Hello dear friends,
I am pleased and honoured reading your comments. Thank you very much, I appreciate your words a lot.
I suppose, this ship will take me about 4-5 years. The larger scale allows me to create much more details and more accurate fitting. I have to say, I am especially looking forward to decoration and sculpting.

I am not sure, what the word "trunnel" exactly mean - can you explain please?I am not good at professional English and nautical terminology.

The foil stripes are only glued on the smooth surface and finally I use hot air to shape and attach them perfectly.

The ship is already placed on the pedestal and the gun ports are framed, so now I can begin to cover the surface using "wooden" planks - of course made of foil strips.

And the helper almost fell asleep ..... So I stayed alone for the work this time....

Best regards,

a trunnel is a hard wooden pin that swells when moist, used for fastening ship timbers together. Sometimes called a treenail from which the word trunnel was derived.

You would drill a hole through the plank and frame member and drive the wooden pin through the hole. The pin would swell and hold the planking to the framework. Used in place of metal nails.

Here is one website that discusses trunnels:
The Power of Publicity - Ten Pound Island Book Company

It is in English, but if you scroll down a bit there is a picture showing trunnels used on a ship hull.
