Yes, I finished it, and it was subsequently badly damaged in transit to Belgium. I discontinued the build here because of a general lack of interest in merchant ships. I have sent you a PM.
Best wishes

They must have dropped it from a great height, because the packing box was undamaged. When it arrived in Belgium, the damage was confined to the fore and mainmasts. When it got back, the mizzen mast had lost its sails and spars as well

I have removed most of the damaged rigging, but there is not much left now, and I really haven't felt like making any efforts to repair it so far

I know how you feel...kinda got the wind knocked out of your sails to begin the new repairs. You cleaned her up well...when you get ready to rebuild her. Now you know Kinda how Donald McKay felt when he visited the burned wreck of his beloved Great Republic......

More power to you...my friend.
