It takes guts to do what you are doing. Tearing down a finished model like that and rebuild it. But you are doing a really good job. I love the metal work. I wish i had those skills!

I totally agree with Frankberge. When I make a mistake, it is hard to think about fixing it since the chances of screwing it up worse seems to be looming right around the corner.
Happy modeling,
Gary Maple

Hello,
Thanks Frankberger, when I see the Cutty Sark to Greenwich, I think that she is very beautiful. My scale model was too bad and I had want of remake all.

Gary, thanks for your opinion, now the main rail port is is laid. Next I am laying the iron bulwark (sheet of brass) and dead eyes.
