Your builds are always so clean and precise.
The camera has been known to lie!!

                  Few more bits and bobs added.
              Turrets and cranes are just dry fitted. I don't think it's very handsome ship, might look better with masts and the fine detail added.
              Finally, some of the ships boats in place, just to see what it looks like. I may use some artistic licence here, four are suspended outboard on davits, which looks highly unlikely for two of them, they wouldn't last five minutes in a heavy sea, we'll see.

Yes, the camera has been known to lie, but with me it`s usually the other way round ;)

                After a weeks holiday and another week and a bit not doing a great deal, there's not been much activity in the shipyard so I thought I'd better get my finger out.
              Ships boats in place though a couple more to add later and the masts fabricated. Main-mast all brass, fore-mast, brass from the platform upwards.
          Rigging and more railings next.
      Not a pretty looking ship is it?

I suppose beauty is in the eye of the beholder but some warships certainly look "majestic", other types can look "pretty" to me. Perhaps "bonny" is a better description.

On your last build you demonstrated a technique for attaching rigging and such through holes that you had drilled and christened this technique "Haddock Hole" remember???

'Oles'

"A now recognised description of the ingenious build skills of Monsieur Haddock"

Nothing else to add, except 'Brilliant Work'

Fore-mast rigged. Having trouble getting a decent picture.

                  Main-mast rigged.
      Looks a bit better with a light background and a different setting on the camera, still messing about. To be fair, the rigging is about 0.003" dia so I'm probably expecting a bit much.
