11/25. I got the rear side rails on. The bulwarks. Got the the Captains quarters deck house on. Scale was was way off. Took twice as long, bc I wasn't happy and did these steps twice! 

I imagine we've all been there?! 

Sliced my thumb with the xacto. Gonna take a couple weeks off while I let it heal and think about cannons and anchor windlass, anchors, and a deck box. 

Cheers!

I dropped the jig with ship attached and busted the mast. 

A week of my life I'm not getting back. 

 

Commiserations. I've been there. You will do a better job on the repair.

After looking at Dsiemens, and Exwafoos Ratline jigs, I made one too. Started out with holes, but the lines are crooked. Notches in the side worked out better. Thread locked into position with super glue.
