The Materials Arrive

This week saw the first of many deliveries and this one was mainly the plastics, brass and paints required for this build.

Still to follow are all the fine detailing items such as the Stanchions and railing, brass propellers and anchors, and the most important item is the laser etched wooden decking.  After several days searching the internet and numerous telephone calls most of the specialist items have now been tracked down.

The plan for this weekend is to start cutting the hull to accommodate the two front guns that sit on the main deck, and then to start adding the side gun mountings for the midships and stern.  The barrels for all of these will be 3D printed using liquid resin and have been drawn ready to print, and just another little job for the weekend.

Photos are to follow.
