As you, I haven't been around lately, due to personal circumstances. However, you have made some major advancement. I like the way you did your decks - have to keep that one in mind - and also the method for the gun ports.

Thank you very much to all for your comments :text-thankyouyellow:

Apologize for the last few weeks of absence. I've been (and I) quite busy at the gigs and I can not devote many hours these days.
I started with the gun ports port and the idea was to let these facts loopholes frames with some "depth" to make it look once painted the effect of "bulk" of the hull, since the wall at that point is only 1 , 5mm.
The problem begins in the implementation of these frameworks. I tried 1mm (too thin), 2mm (too thick) .. I made a template, mold, etc ... but were not exactly the same.

The idea is to make a square tube frames far and go mode cutting slices. In this way, everyone is equal and then with the second liner, dissimulation possible defects in the pocket.
Now I only doubt what color I paint the frame ... red, walnut, etc ...

With picture is clearer but not much mystery.

This is what you need to get



The wood that will square tube and gluing process. This helped me a aluminum profile measures slightly smaller, but perfectly aligns the slats.













With the circular saw (gift :) ) cut the "slices" of the gun ports





Here the first of 13x11 port side. Those that are not done yet deck the area that are somewhat larger.





Simulation second plank

Hello
We continue with the gun ports.

To make things easier, once the plant properly located in the town, proceed to mark in a "dirty" various loopholes to get dirty location, but quite real.





The next step is to take measurements of the shafts and start drawing each of the 49 pockets ... but to make things easier, we will abuse the technology.
First with autocad do I serve matrix template and then print it on transparent paper adhesive. This way, I save a lot of time.





So are restated the pockets. Now back to pull drill, cutter and patience ....

Excellent templates (using AutoCad I see). Very nice Carlos - I am jealous - I should have used the CAD to do my templates too. Fantastic idea there. (just kidding about the jealous part) :razz:

Hello
I finished the task of gun ports.
All gun ports tinted walnut.
Now looks like a ship to moles, haha



Detail tinted walnut gun port




I opted to make the second planking with 10 cm segments.
The idea is to do with that lining the gun ports within which in theory should fit the window. As I finish about half a millimeter before lined hollow gun port.
