Hello shipmates, a small update of my Santisima Trinidad, after my mandatory rest started again with the finishing of the upper deck, will try to finish everything off the deck before I start the flank cannons and cannon ports, then to the copper work of the hull (or would I better follow a different pattern?)
Greetings

jijijijijijji:D:D:D Uwe, you know they do not taste so bad, and it helps me to smoke less, of course the best way to let it be is modeling, modeling and modeling but do not give me ideas with the dust ....... maybe I will be able to smoke it (joking):cool::cool::cool:

Hi DJ, just persist. I was a chain smoker for 40 years and I had a bypass 6 years ago( not from smoking) and the surgeon told me , Id be back in 4 years for another if I did not give up. I cold turkey'd. Never felt better, Everything tastes better. Its a hard slog but worth every effort.

Nomore cravings, no more standing out in the cold. more money for models !

You're absolutely right Paul, now I did not know that in Melbourne down under it can be cold, I thought it's always nice weather?

Very neat work on the guns and gun tackles. I like the neatly coiled ropes it must have taken you ages to do.
Your lads deserved to win in the World Cup last night, you played much better than we did. Still at least we are beating the Aussies in the cricket :D

Cheers Andy

Thank you Andy, our team wrote history yesterday, it was from May 9, 1936, when we won again from England, although yesterday both teams played with many reserves.
hopefully we will see each other again in the Final.

Hi Willy I can sympathies. I have just finished 60 guns on the Santa Ana and starting the next 56 ( she has 126).
I think the other members with the non guns ship have go the right idea!. Enjoy the guns, cause next its RATLINES!
Good morning Paul, I prefer the ratlines:D:D:D than those guns have more place to do the rope work well

Good morning Oliver, you are absolutely right .... the next one would rather make something small, but then I would miss the challenge:D:D
nice facebook page that you have ... love it
