As I've added an inner wall it means I've had to close up the opening area.
Image

So spare wood from past kits was used to build up the walls, first I built a square up with 4x4mm.
Image

Then added 1x4mm strips on top until it was level with the outer edge of the ribs.
Image

I then inlaid 1x4mm pieces to build the inner walls.

Picked this backup and also the Stagecoach.

Trying to finish some kits before I look at starting any new kits.

I started a diary on the stagecoach awhile ago, but not updated it :oops: I've completed the wheels and started the coach chassis.

Great to see you return to this Ian and the stagecoach :) look forward to seeing your progress.
I have a couple of builds that also need finishing :shifty: lack of space is a problem at the moment but with a new workshop getting erected soon I can get back to it and not worry about things getting damaged or moved

This was all shaped by hand as you just get the uprights in 4mmx4mm and the cross section in 1mmx4mm

The next part of the build was to install the upper deck, but I decided to do the outer wall up to the upper deck just so I'm able to install the guns and other bits before the upper deck is installed photos show process, but I'm up to the point of the upper deck.

Hi Mark, I've started to slide towards wooden kits more at the moment.

I've even started to down scale my plastic kit collection, started to sort out which ones I don't want so I can get rid of them at some point.

Going to get rid of 90% of my tamiya military armour collection, Airfix figures and some aircraft.

With the Woody Joe kits (which I've just brought another one should be here today) and some ship desk sections and a small sub I have quite a few wooden kits to keep me going.

It's very pleasing building in wood rather then plastic, I would recommend you try it at some point :)

I'll second that. Working in wood is very satisfying.

The Woody Joe kits are superbly engineered. Everything just fits perfectly.
Cheers

Cheers Mate,

So before I added the upper deck I installed the Guns and hammocks, the instruction call for two hammocks but I installed four.

Cheers Mark, but the thumb is an optical allusion by the lens due to the angle, the model is a good size I've not measured it but I would say about 7"-8" high at the moment.

On this deck we have the wash out's, the small holes ;) I've add some piece to the areas but there not called for in the instructions.
Image

Next the first inner layer was added the the holes cut out.
Image

From the outside to shown the deck level with the outer edge.

The reason I added the small floor bits was because I wanted to enclose the wash out's

Made a small blunder, once I had cut out the gun ports I realised I hadn't add the extra blocking inside the walls :angry-banghead: so I had to remove two strips so I could access the inner sections. No biggie all this will be hidden by the next layer of wood :oops:

Bottom piece add and the side where added today, so tomorrow I'll be able to add the top sections and then sand to shape, these will also be cladded with the next layer of dark wood.
