H.M.S. Surprise (Top Deck Fittings Begin)




Probably one of the best things about wooden ship building is getting to build all these neat fittings that go on the deck. They are like little models onto themselves. This is where the detailing of a ship in my opinion really begins. Plus as you can see more work has been done on the stern and forecastle though by no means finished. Next up more cannons.

Wauw! that's starting to look great, are you planning to put some led lights in there? It would look cool when displayed in a darker area.

Actually I hadn't really thought of it.

Details and more details, good work.

I gotta say that this thing is looking really good, and I'm really excited to see it finished! I absolutely love this era of naval history. This ship will be a gem in your collection, I think.

Thanks Hanny - It will certainly be the most expensive.

Each and every post you make on this project is amazing. I still can't get over the "less visible" cannons only having 14 pieces! Awesome Warren...

Thanks Pat - I just finished installing the upper deck cannons. Fiddly little things, I'm glad they're done.
