Fantastic, I have a bit of 'thing' for sloops at the moment, love the rake in the mast, the massive bowsprit and look of being massively 'over sailed'. The motor torpedo boats of their day!
Current Build: ZHL Black Pearl 1:50

Next Up: Billing Boats Bounty 1:50

Researching for POB scratch build : HMS Ferret 1:48 (1711)

Zoltan - Compliments to the chef on this one! Such a wonderfully clean build and I love the detail work that you did with the ropes and lines. :handgestures-salute:

Very nice build, Zoltan. I want to incorporate a 'slipway look' on my current build and your excellent photos have given me some good ideas, so thanks.

I must also say well done my friend.

Question, the ropes look like aftermarket ones. Did you make them yourself ?
