I also like how you did the metalworks, they are very clean. Keep it up!
Lex thanks for the tip ..I will definitely check it out. Thanks for interest in my build.

Your pictures are a fine example of why I don’t build ships — I have boundless admiration for those who do, but the wire work and rigging terrify me. I hope you are not keeping that lighter there to use when the frustration gets the better of you!

Nah, he might have already used it. What we are looking at in the picture is the 5th attempt.

When I build things I never do second run with the same part I don't have enough patience to do the same part twice

I had the break from my build, went to cottage for a week to get some energy back The weather was crappy today so it took me only one day to finish torpedo launcher ...one more to go ..I think I will need more wires than I though I thought that funnels were full of wires but looks like that is just beginning

Very nice torpedo launcher. I have them still on a to-do list.

Unfortunately, cannons have the same amount of wiring. But luckily for me, I have one cannot less to do than you. In my version (1945) there were only two cannons.
