Goals and ideas for finishing off my French Battleship

Oh I so hate the little cannons that are bent or broken, I am in search of brass barrels to replace the lot, though I am unable to find a small enough one but the search continues. I do think I can make this one set I have been eyeing online for awhile that may work out.

So the goals I have thus far left to do for this ship (in no given order)
1. fix broken mast (either pin or replace completely)
2. work on the wiring for the mast area once my online order comes in (and paint)
3. clean up the over paint and paint lines
4. paint the anchors, I really don't know what to paint them. Perhaps black?
5. varnish and seal
6. waiting for my new webcam to come in so I can do a small video to show how it looks and post that online.
7. the smoke stacks look off just being all black, will have to do a highlight on the edges to make it stand out better.
8. I still have to work on the metallic parts and finish those off, they really are not suppose to look like they are right now. Including the bottom area which is a total mess.

Things I want to do:
1. find a good looking railing to put onto the ship.
2. why stop at one, I want to put port holes on the superstructure and perhaps replace the fighting tops entirely.
3. ladders
4. put in little AA guns
5. decal number on ship
