Paul
Thanks for jpg fix. I saw the issue was a software glitz. Also appreciate other comments :)

She is done.

Well apart from the stand.....

This has been a great kit and a real fun build. Given I got it for $299 it was a bargain.
The wood quality was excellent and plentiful.
The thread is typical Occre / AL thread. Not bad but not great. ( still love the stuff that comes with caldercraft)

The metal bits were nice and only needed a little cleaning.

Anyway here are the final images:

The external oars I decided to add ( not in kit, but 3mm dowel & leftover grating work well)

I've always like Xebecs. Yours is an exceptional job. I just bought the old Aeropiccola Indiscret on eBay, and I hope that I can emulate your build!

Hello Paul
As you know I am building the CAZADOR and posting to this site. I am questioning the way my first plank below the bulwark fits at the stern. There appears to be an overhang of the deck in this area. Looking at your build and pictorial instructions, I don't see this overhang. I don't really have an issue with the overhang. I'm just concerned that I am missing something. I have posted two JPEGs on my log for clarification.
