Hi Roger,
Thanks for visiting my build log, and for your kind words. She is 1:200 scale, 160mm X 52mm. It is very hard to see. I am dreading the rigging of this little ship I will have to use a jewelers loop to see the blocks and dead eyes.
That's why we do it. :text-thankyouyellow: :music-rockout: :handgestures-salute:

Thanks Zoly & Geoff for visiting my build log. Yes it is tiny. When I bought it I didn't know what I was buying and I can't abandon a project. So when I get stumpt I shift gears for a while.

Ahoy Shipmates,
Another installment from the leetle sheep yard. I have cut three different pieces of wood trying to find a good siding for this model. Finaly I think I have a solution. I will double plank this ship with a veneer of sappli that I have. Before that happens I have allot of sanding to do.

The instructions called for scoring the sides to simulate planking but that didn't sound good.
Thanks for visiting

Hi Lawrence,
Thank for your visit to my build log. I plan to use a filler putty to fill in the nicks and the old scribe lines. then use veneer planks to give her a more old ship look. I don't like using metal deck fitting if I don't have to.

Ahoy Ship Mates,
Back in the Ship Yard cracking the whip on my work gang. This will be a short up date just to illustrate the filler I'm using to prepare the ship for Her veneer coat of planks. :handgestures-salute:
