Hello Zolton

Great job you have did on your Futtock Riders the sure do look great and well done. I see that you cut your own, were they not supplied in your kit? Just wondering or just being nosy, ENJOY.

Hello Zoltan

I would have thought that your kit would have laser cut out these Futtock Riders but to be truthful your scratch Futtock Riders are much better and fit so much better than those that could be supplied in a kit.

I have ordered a set of Harold Underhill's Plans on an Elizabethan Gallant as I could not find a set of plans foe the San Francisco II Just got word that they have to print this set of plans and that will take around 10 days, so in the mean time I am searching the web for ideas on how to build a display case for my HMS Bounty. I do believe that I have most of it figured out and with any luck at all I will soon be making saw dust, ENJOY.

Hello Zoltan

Well done on your added Capstal it sure seams to fit in very well. You are much like I am by adding more detail to your builds, I think it dreses thim up just a bit and makes them more ineresting to look at and also a little bit special, ENJOY.
