HMS Wivern by Chausseur

I got a chance to work on the mount that holds the hull in the light bulb and soldered up the Bow Sprit and Jib Boom complete with Martingale. I referenced Underhill's book for this.

Life has been extremely busy. Change management at work, taking care of my aging Mom, and the Vice Admiral is asking for a ton of renovations on our house. It never ends! Anyway, attached is a picture of the mizzen mast with sail less flag. I have to finish making the flag. Also I have quite a bit of deck furniture and ancillary stuff built ready to install on the deck. 

The Canadian dime shows reference to the scale I am working in.
