Hi all well I've been building this for about a year now (well its sat for probably 8 months of that time)the kit itself is full of errors I've tried to correct what I can, I'm using real gold leaf on it. ive decided to do this as a waterline model (which as a bonus hides the error in the depth of the hull.

I can't see them storing the ships boats on the deck so I've put the pinnace in the water on a supply run, I intend to have some pulleys winching supplies onbaord

all well I've fixed the foremast and strengthened it with a rod up the middle, making it a waterline model had an unexpected problem to it the main mast locates in an I shaped piece which is glued to the bottom of the hull to keep the mast central and true since I cut the bottom of the hull off obviously that locating area was no longer there also the mast was a lot higher than it should have been, luckily I still had the bottom of the hull that I cut off so I put the mast in it laid a rule across the hull and marked where it cam on the mast and cut that piece off but the mast is tapered at the bottom and the holes through the decks must be the same size as when I put the mast in it Leaned either way so I had a cunning idea and wrapped masking tape round the bottom of the mast till it was a snug fit in the bottom hole ( only problem now is the mast seems to lean sternwards) so now I just have that problem to sort and of course to make sure it is square with the center line as well.
