Put bulkhead paneling on, I had some on earlier so I had to do a few repairs.

Almost there, put a few pieces in the bottom of the gun ports then sand and paint.

I was using Cadmium red, didn't like so sanded down (the is the Cadmium red) and using Cadmium free red.

The Cadmium free paint (finished the port yellow as well), need to sand and do a few more layers.

Started to do gun ports sills. I fill in visible defects with a bit of glue and will do the touch up paint (gotta put the #0 and #1 paint bush to work). The aft cabin window is in. My chopping station is in the pic, just used and old miter box mounted so some wood and a blade. After all sills are in, then I will put on a layer of black and then the tallow. After that, gotta be more careful when handling. I will put on a base, and on a swivel.

Been a bit, been working here and there. Starboard has been done for a while, just been lollygagging on port (good news, I finally painted the post on my front porch so that is off my honey-do list).

Stbd done, paint staging for port sills in background.

Port progress, fast since I decided that at best with the wood provided is a bit rough, but then took of my magnifiers and was happy with the look.

On to the waterways. Only a few and some are mitered around the hanking knee (looking to be a bit of a pain). Finally got to use the shaper (quarter moon for these) I bought a year ago. I just stained the wood and glued in place, used a few blocks and clothes pins to hold while glue dries.
