Hi all well i've fixed the bowsprit
Airfix Royal Sovriegn IgLjFVA
to be honest I dont think I will be staring this before my hols in a weeks time but I am excited by the prospect.
the moulding for such an old kit I think is outstanding, its certainly equal to the Heller La reale.

Just wanted to see how it compared to the heller la reale and I think it is deffo as good, once I've added the black it will be stunning.

I remember looking at pictures of this kit in the old Airfix catalogues of the 1970s. Looking forward to seeing you put this one together.

The kit comes with stubby half cannons for the lower decks( I may live to regret this but Ive decided to open up the gun ports and make some whole guns to put behind them, since they are below decks and you wont see much of them they wont need to be too detailed or accurate, and I am only doing one side as they would never do a broadside on both sides, I mean what admiral in his right mind would choose to take the risk of a broadside on both sides at the same time) also it means I've only got to make 30 guns and carriages. I also have to make part decks for one side.

I had to look at the pictures three times to understand what you were sharing. But I got it now. Nice work on those canons. It really does add a lot. Well worth the time and effort.

Same here.  Early fotos were a puzzle.  Now I see the sense and, as you say, under deck guns don't need much detail.  Fabulous gold leaf work and the background paint makes it really stand out.  Seeing the molded-in detail on these ships makes me angry model car manufacturers don't often bother doing body work car and truck emblems very well!

Hi all decided to guild this side before I put the top guns in as it will be harder when they are poking out.
