    Love the poleacre Rob!

    Nice painting Bryan!

    I am able to do a bit of painting myself now, using the jeweler's vise to hold the ship with my left hand thumb and unsplinted fingers.

    Glad to hear you are starting to cope again Vol. It is incredible what you can adapt to if the need arises. Mind you I still have problems with doing up buttons and shoe laces. Most everything else I can manage now.

    The Business of the commander-in-chief is first to bring an enemy fleet to battle on the most advantageous terms to himself, (I mean that of laying his ships close on board the enemy, as expeditiously as possible); and secondly to continue them there until the business is decided.

    Thank you Vol! I'm glad to hear you're able to get back to painting!

    Thanks, I still have six of the eleven stitches and we are on day 16. It is not healing as well as I had hoped. I have to keep it bandaged and splinted still. But at least the pain is tolerable now without pharma. It was the pain that stopped me from attempting any hobby activity before. A shame because the heat wave we are having has provided an excuse to spend a lot of time indoors. This is what I have been trying to work onName:  20200730_094852.jpg

    Stitches are such a pain to take care of. I hope thing start going better for you.

    On a positive note, those ships are looking great! Looking forward to the finished product!

    They do indeed look very fine already Vol. They are going to be superb on the games table when completed.

    Glad to hear you're on the mend, Vol. Those are very interesting ships. What are they, and what do the sterns look like?

    Thank you Bryan for the well wishes, and for the rep

    Dobbs, they are Black Seas frigates and third rates. I get some stern picks tomorrow.

    Well my last hull is completed for the end of this month. Just a matter of the sails today and I will be ready for a new project for August.

    Aargh! Forced into it because of Bligh's lovely sails. When I built this, I thought doing stripes would be a pain in the bottom, but seeing how superior Rob's sails look I have to go back and paint mine in place!w

    Because the one below that Warlord provides is for the 1853 sloop of war, not the original frigate!

    Stripes are a pain! But they do look good. Some retouching needed and then on to the hull.

    I like your Constellation refabrication. I think it's much more in line with the 1797 frigate.

    Really sorry Dobbs.
    I am not trying to give you extra work.
    Speedwell Lass says that the stripes look really fine on your model.

    A final few touches for my Xebecs. I now have boxes, and just need the ship mats doing and the Ship cards.

    Thanks for your kind remark and the Rep. What I like about them is it gives you a chance to put in your own scenery for the background Bryan.

    Thank you for the Rep also Gary.
    Hope we can meet up soon.
    The Games club has moved from the Church to the old Job Centre just up the road from the Bus Station. It is now open with restricted access. For more specific info see Captain Kiwi as he has been and has a caution about some of the nearby parking as they seem to be fining people who park in the shops car parks.
