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

Now that the top deck fittings a basically finished the side fittings can begin. First up will be the instalment of the chainwales for the rat lines. Unfortunately due to the lousy so called brass wire supplied with the kit I will have to use a black metal wire that I happen to have as its replacement. It's more accurate anyway.

Absolutely beautiful! I am doing a lecture with the Kitchener Waterloo Symphony in November on the Aubrey/Maturin canon of novels.Would you be interested in having your model displayed at the concerts? I also chose the music for this concert featuring pieces from the movie and the novels.Your ship will be the highlight of the show! Please let me know what you think.Thanks Warren.

Hi Peter - Sorry, though I appreciate your offer the model is far to delicate to move at regular intervals. Besides I have other plans for it. I'm going to be putting partially furled sails on it as well. Again sorry about this :(
