    Black Pearl By ZHL build

    I spoke with Max again just a few min ago I think our language barrier may have been an issue. He thought I was asking for a better grade of Plank wood when I wasn't.

It would be best to remove the crank handle and its bearing. I plan on making long sections of rope so I don't have to do it so often that will...

    HMS Victory 1:96 based on Shipyard

    Thanx Brother I'll go check it out, but I really like your build especially all the filler between bulkheads it shows thought in a better end result.
