Made some progress. Here are the pictures.
I Do not know the names of the pieces of wood at the frontside that are bent ( the dark and the white ones)sorry. They where pre made in the kit from plywood and broke easyaly so made them myself. Before i cut the lasercut pieces i scan the whole plate with my printer and print out the copy incase i have to make it again or if i want to build the boat again. I also keep theplate of wood where in cut it out so i can remake everything. Hope the built is a bit oké its Just my second built so learning a lot again. My eyes are not that good any more because 2 years ago i lost eyesight with in 2 days because of medicine use. Had 2 eye oparations in 6 weeks. So had to Let painting Go and into building boats now. Tnx for watching

Well little update. Worked on the deck and the cannons. Opened all the gunports on left and right side and drilled the holes for the cannons . But with 2 broken ribbs today is painfull progress. Trying to keep the pain out of my head with building the boat.

Here little update. Worked 2 weeks on wilhelm and now for a change on the trinidad again. Been bussy with the cabins and little things on the deck. Was almost done with the cabines but then the book said to paint some wood with gold paint and also the top carving on the cabin. Didnt like it so chanced the whole cabin. Still need to perfection it. Also my wife ordered the San pelipe for me at zhl .tnx for watching .

Its a bit dissapointing that the brass on the Stern has to be painted. I would like to make it from wood but the drawings dont show the Stern and the drawings are not scale 1 on 1. Tried to trace it but its so small that it didnt worked. Anyone has a solution?
