Whether earlier he swam and now will be also ? Generally I bought with the badly set body. Never completed. Which place I am lacking the upper deck or the picture exactly in a cockpit is coming. Could you measure from the beak from the picture how it is coming? And which place from the beak is passing the mast in?

again Borge....I have to say that the wood design you made for the deck capping looks great! the two tone wood really makes the build stand out. of course I'm cheating.....I've seen all this, but you've really put some detail into this build.

this is what I mean about Billing boats......they are so easy to embellish on, and the ideas are endless. good job my friend! :handgestures-thumbup:

Hi what measures was you thinking of, a bit hard to understand what you ment.
Did you mean from the bow(front) to where the cabin, and mast start.
