lion
Ram

I made this lion figurehead of clay and painted with an acrylic paint.

anchor
Forecastle and anchor

There is no bulkhead at either end of the forecastle.
According to Mr. Burningham, "However, the original plans did include such bulkheads. They could be fitted. It is easier to work the ship without those bulkheads but if we ever needed to defend the ship against a boarding party they would be sorely missed."

This anchor is that for the Corel's H.M.S. Victory kit.

As you can see, there is no forecastle bulkhead.

Poop deck

mast
Joint section of the lower mast and the topmast

The joint section is unfamilier structure. The topmast is scarfed to the lower mast.

The jeers or blocks are not used to support the lower yards.
The doubled halliard tie goes through sheaves on either side of the mast in the cheeks at the hounds.

stern
Stern

Early in the 17th century, banners and ensigns were fastened to their flagstaffs. The flag halliard system was not used. So I fastened the flag to the flagstaff.

rudder
Rudder

I made the pintles and gudgeons of brass.
