Each time, I am awed by the seemingly out-of-hand way you build your 
models. In your place, I would endlessly tinker with the object, 
constantly changing, amending, restarting from scratch, before being 
satisfied and after being often frustrated. Good, clean, job, sir. 
Waiting for the next stages, masts and rigging I assume. Some more decks 
and pilot house, yes?

Thanks for the compliment, Thomas. I do tinker, change, before satisfied. The
main thing is to make up your mind and say, okay, this is it! Some sample,
close-up renders, yes, it looks good, done, Otherwise you're never finished. I'm
not a perfectionist in the sense that everything has to be the correct size up
to the millimeter, or 1/16 of an inch (this is an imperial ship, after all). I
don't think I would have the patience, or stamina, to do your work on the
granites,
The decks are finished, there are not many structures on deck. The maindeck has
some quarters and the carpenters shop. The aftdeck has a chart house, the
steering wheel is outside. There are a couple of things on the deck, like
britts, fife rails, railing, and then the masts with all the rigging. So still
plenty to do.
Attached are close-ups of the foredeck and aftdeck from the maindeck.

Cheers
Ton.

It is not so much that I am a perfectionist (I am a bit but not 
excessively) but I have regularly problems with finding the 
right/correct way to do things or to apply the correct solution to a 
problem.

I am slowly working towards the moment when I shall reveal some of my 
recent work: an architectural project I started in 2009 with Moray, 
shelved till the beginning of 2021, interrupted by the granites project, 
and restarted in January 2022...

Very nice indeed. Pristine clean paint job too. :-)

I like that decorative curved-wood railing(?) around the fore-deck. A
sphere-sweep?

I am watching the construction of this ship with interest; nice work so far.

Hi Kenneth, that edge around the foredeck are just a couple of cylinders. I know
where the vertices of the mesh are, and just draw the cylinders.

Thomas, looking forward to your never-ending project.

The Balclutha now has its bulwark-rail and stanchions. I also added the bitts.

Cheers
Ton.

Here is a close-up of the stanchions. The photo also shows a bitt.

Cheers
Ton.

Thanks. It's just a black metallic texture with a bit of bozo pattern normal,
nothing fancy, but it looks good.

The fife rails are done, here is a photo of the mainmast one, with the bilge
pump attached.

Cheers
Ton.

Deckhouse is done. This is the largest object on Balclutha, besides the hull,
also one of the easiest.Just a RE_Box_y from roundedge.inc, cylinders and
toruses for the roof, and add the portholes and doors.

Cheers
Ton.
