Actually I did not intend to make capstan rotatable. I am using pin to reinforce the joint between deck and captsan. Same story with pump.

Hello.

It is time to dust off build log for long overdue update.

For almost past two months I've tried to finish all the details and prepare for rigging.

Bow came first. It called for bending and glueing quite long and thin beams. After some tries on photocopied parts I've decided to cut parts along bend lines, then use this cuts and laminate them on beams made from cardstock. I think that pictures will describe it better.

Next came stern construction with rudder fin. I have also finished mast and cargo hatch covers which are not yet glued in.

Current look with mast and bowsprit dry fitted (I need bigger shadeless tent ).
From original kit only anchors are left to do. Then I can start to rig this vessel.

I've covered model with acrylic varnish. Two layers of glossy, and one of matt coat. Unfortunetly it came a bit too thick. I've used AK Interactive Spray.

Beautiful.
This ship is full of wonderful decorative architecture.
The gold rings you used to decorate the deck pieces make this a jewel.
And . . . the professional looking photos show how fine the work really is.

Thx for kind words Michael.

Before I start rigging this boat I need to decide on the colour of rigging. For this purpose I've temporaily fitted yard with main sail. I've prepred three sets of sails for this vessel, each set in slightly different shade. At first I wanted to use third option. But now after trying all of them I am hesitating between 1 and 3. I can delay this decision for a bit becuse I need to make new yard. This one is unfortunetly bent in upper part.

A stunning model and clean assembly!

I'm not a maritime expert but I believe more grayish colors would look most naturally.

Time for an update in this build log.

I've managed to make shrouds. During tensioning unfortunetly one of the horizontal bars on sides came unglued which forced me to redo whole thing. Because of this setback I lost interest in the build for a couple of months. Finally recently I've managed to return to the build.

For blocks instead of using kit parts I've aquired laser cut parts from Shipyard. All ropes are made with cotton thread, stained with acrylic paints and then treated with beeswax. Anchor cable made from 1mm cotton line also from Shipyard.

Cargo was not included in the kit .

Finish is near as I need to only hang sails and fix all ropes in place.
