Ahoy Shipmates,
This will be the last installment on my Cross Section build for a while. I have decided to build my U.S.S, Constitution model as a tribute to Geoff Wilson (Aussie048). I got to know Geoff because we were both building A Connie. I have been sitting on this model since I joined SOS, mainly because I didn't want to cock it up as a new builder. This seems an appropriate time to start the build.
All that being said I finished planking the deck of my Blandford model and tried to build my own gratings fro scratch. The gratings did not work out like I thought so I gave in and bought some commercial grating. I also finished installing the posts for the lower deck and put a coat of varnish on everything that was ready.

I will continue when I'm done with the Constitution.

Hi Mike,
I agree with Dave you are doing an exceptional job on your model and look forward to the continuation when you finish your Constitution, you are at a good point to pause the build making it easy to pick up where you left off after the Constitution is finished.

Hi Mike,
I have to leave for the airport in a few minutes. I will send you a procedure later today. Don’t glue anything together until you see the plan.
