HMS Bounty - under construction

The builder of this model of HMS Bounty has been working on it for many years. Every aspect of building a ship model can take a great deal of pondering coupled with trial and error.
As you can see from the above view, this model has an interior. How much of that will show once the main deck is planked is up to the builder's discretion.
In the two views here you can see the ship developing.
The white strips are in place to act as guidelines to aid in the construction. They will be removed when they are no longer needed. Note the ship's boat, which was dealt with in an earlier entry.
