Had to make him lie very still while I planked around him. Had to go out and buy special glue for backsides so the hairs did not fall out x7x

Time to do the Quarter Galleries

First i marked then cleaned up and laid out the parts needed

Image

First thing i found was the tabs on the top quarter gallery pattern were not long enough as they have to pass through the inside pattern and then into the holes in the rear of the top gun port pattern so i used a bit of Lime planking to extend them a little so the were a good fit

Once they where long enough i could then fit them through the inside gallery pattern and also through the top gun port pattern this is so the inside gallery pattern is lined up correctly once done i could then fit the rest of the quarter gallery structure patterns and the inner stern facia and the upper and lower stern counter patterns.

Image

Some filling and cleaning up still to do on these as they are made from walnut which is brittle and marks very easily especially when they have been soaked for bending

Cheers Dennis, it should be no problem tidying it up with some filler and sanding as it is not as bad as the camera shot makes it look

Inner stern fascia and the upper and lower stern plates now filled and sanded to get rid of the bad joints and pin holes. Still a bit more tidying up to do on them once the second hull planking has been applied around them. The colour difference, due to different soaking times will not be visible once a few coats of Admiralty Dull Black has been applied

Image

Next job is to paint black in between the gallery supports so that the walnut is not visible through the glazing, then glazing the outer gallery skins and fitting them

Tis a long process and no mistake, slow and easy it seems.

Thanks Frank. Mostly going slow because I want to be in the right mood when I work on it so that I don't just chuck it together. Also debating with myself if I should run another project alongside this one as I now have HMS Pegasus from Victory Models.

Well I to have other kits to build, one being the USS Constitution with lots of added detail.
I to am thinking along those lines once I have got a little further with Victory.

Also had a wood frigate for xmas.

Its good to change.

Making good progress Bob, the stern is looking very clean and tidy. The Quarter galleries look to have a decent external curve, so many kit versions seem to be wedge shaped which imo detracts from the look of a model.

Thanks Maurice, Yes there is quite a curve on the quarter galleries and the external skins with the windows have to be bent around them
