The build looks really great, but what are rudder irons and the "skeleton fish" way. Is there another way to do what you are doing? Man I would love to know everything you know.

Hello Kent,
Ruder irions is named parts of "hinges" for joint rudder with ships hull.
Ways to do something is so many as the people who are trying to do it
plus one more.
Such method I found as the suitable for it and named "fish skeleton" for the reason of similarity to fish bones.

Neat technique Tadeusz. I'm going to have to give that a try. I also like the way you made the cannon carriages.

Well, actually your whole model looks great. Love that bread and butter modeling!
