Back at it!!!
Well, all of the gun ports were finally cut out. Not too bad...a little drilling around the perimeter of each on and then attacked the openings with my dremel.
As you can see the outer planking as begun. This process is half as tedious as the first layer. I am actually using contact adhesive for this part. Apply the glue to both halves, allow to dry and bang....stuck!
I am using the same template I made to create the initial gun ports to mark out and cut the top layer. This is of course a cleaner cut that will get filed back to allow 12mm x 13mm gun port framing to be installed a few pages ahead in the instructions.
That's it for the moment. I am just about ready to construct yet another piece for the stern. This will define how the outer planking will terminate in the aft section of the ship....then....a little painting will commence!
