I'm a bit confused on your kits.
You're remodelling 4 x May Flower - yes?
Why does the transom have a 'Hinde' on it? And what appear to be two shields with arms dispayed?
The May Flower had a 'May Flower' carved on its transom board.

Good spot Fred, glad you are awake :D :oops: I have corrected previous entries, it is, of course, the Golden Hind :D  which explains the Hind on the stern  :lol:

All that said, having just looked up the Mayflower kit, it looks very similar :? In the pictures i have seen.

Hope that clears up any confusion :D

Due to the great weather all efforts have been put into moving the new workshop forward, but the bow of the 'brig' has had some work to form a new stem and trial some railings (the wide angle lens plays havoc with the perspective ).  Hopefully get some more done over the weekend :D

Thanks Guys
I am having great fun with this GB. Using the Brig as a testbed,I have started to flesh out the 'Grand Cabin' area to try out some ideas.  The windows are laser cut fibreboard (I'll dig out the supplier details later)and various dimensions of plastruct and styrene sheet have been cobbled together to get a feel for a suitable design and construction method :)

Once it has set up overnight and the solvent and CA has hardened off I shall tinker a bit more :D

Captain Sir,

Beg to report that this build, whilst continuing, will not finish on the due date (building a new workshop, ongoing, and 3 weeks out of the country got in the way)  They will carry on in the "plus" zone along with other overtime builds :oops:

No worries Phil, real life must take priority, modelling is something we fit in between everything else. I shall watch your progress in GB Plus. :thumb:

Avast, have I really been adrift for 4 years.......... well the workshop is up and running, and a lot of paid work is under the bridge. The pirate project took a different route due to timeframes, BUT now having time on my hands this project is about to hit the table again as I push to clear the backlog....
