Fright you made a great build of this old kit. Very nice job.
Anthony - many thanks for your compliment and I am very content with how she turned out. This was truly a good learning experience in using blocks and rigging lines. As my 1st wooden kit, this was a 'special' build, which is why I used line from Syrene instead of thread supplied in the kit. The kit also came with metal blocks (most of which were deformed) and I decided to use wooden blocks instead. I ordered those from Latina. After looking at many photos of builds, I added my version of pumps, barrels, and rope coils to the deck. She may have some issues with accuracy but, overall, I'm a very happy camper with this schooner. Here's to many more adventures for us all!

Anchorman - For my 1st ship, I was pretty intimidated in trying to fabricate full sails but I did not want to exclude the appearance of showing her with sails. In doing a lot of researching furled sails, I came across this link that really helped me along with my furled sails. This gentleman really hits the mark with his work! Good read!!!
