John Tilley used to say that it is possible to make a good model ship out of a beef bone or sow's ear, which is what I believe Bob is doing. I am looking forward to its completion!

Thanks for the kind words. Progress on this build has been a little slow the last few weeks. I'm trying to teach myself how to make coils of rope to lie on the deck next to the cannons. I waited a little too long and got too far into the rigging before deciding to rig the cannons. It would have been dumb to do all the other extra work on the ship and then just glue the cannons on the deck. I will post more images as soon as I have made significant additional progress on the build.
