Yeah, one feels kind of  :( :-[ and then  ::)

Anyway I fixed it, didn't see any option to cutting new parts.
Now I can put it all together.

Thanks Damien.

Have been distracted with other issues, but I'm back now. Seems I have become the sole entertainer here.

I filled the gap in the deck where the shaft crosses. During the test sailing I had placed some rags under that area but no water at all got in.
Anyway, I feel better having the gap shut.
I smeared some Bondo in the gap, then slipped a piece of 7/6mm tube over the 6mm shaft and pressed it in place. Then screwed down the shaft until the Bondo had just set. When it was becoming solid, but before hardening completely I could remove the shaft with very little resistance.
Now the shaft has 1/2mm clearance to the filling.

Also installed the magnets which hold the paddle boxes in place.

Put the hand rails on the bulwarks. It's the jobs that you think you can do in a moment that result in taking a lot of time.

Guess now I can start to think about painting the hull.

Ready for some paint.
Masking the model is not my favorite task in modelling in particular with all those bulwark stays.

Paint it black

Painted the white part and forgot to make a picture.

Then some more masking work and applied the black paint. Unfortunately the black paint can decided to declare emptiness just when I had finished 80% of the second coat. Will get a more black today.

Thanks to both for the appreciation and applause.

The ship has a name. I am not too happy with alignment of the stern letters. It doesn't look that bad alive, but when I saw the picture I may consider doing that again. Also there seems to be missing a piece of the T in castle. Have to check that on the ship. It was complete when I applied the letters.

Also made the planking for the sponson platforms.
