Gun Ports Starboard Side

I was just thinking to myself that I’m going in a semi-assembly line process instead of each door seperately.

What I mean is… I first sprayed all the Guns…

Black Spray Paint

Then I drilled all pf the upper rope holes for the Doors.

2 Holes above each door
First 4 Guns installed

I use Aleene’s Rapid Dry for this. Apply it to the Carriage and to the Gun. Waiting time is 2 minutes.

It has a rubbery feel at first, but once it sets, it sets strong. It’s rubbery so you have a bit of wiggle space.

Really, not much of it is visible. ..

Here is my review of it… Aleene’s Rapid Dry Glue

First one…
First 7 done on Starboard side…

So these Gun Port Doors. They require custom work on all of them because I first have to adjust the Widths so that they’re the same as the Gun Ports.

I figured out that if I make the “Hinges” the little slat that I glue on the end and put 2 wires to simulate Hinges. I taper these 2 Slates so that when I insert them into the Gun Ports, they slide right in.

Last 2 left on Starboard side…
