Thanks to all for suggestions & commiserationsCrying

Rooting around workshop to see what components/ materials I already have. Few days down the line since the "incident" I am getting increasingly confident that this is more than salvageableBigGrin

It is with a heavy heart that I report that the Galleon San Francisco II appears to be lost with all hands.Crying

Found that there was more damage to the body which is terminal,

Thanks for all the help and advice I have received to date.

Wandering around the house like a lost puppy worked a treat on Mrs Spineman, To my amazement a Cutty Sark kit arrived yesterday Drool !!!! Thought she may have suggested I buy another SF2, which would have had plenty of spares to use,

But she ordered the Sark as a complete surprise, over the moon, also a little apprehensive as this appears to be a much bigger and more detailed project/ build than the SF.

I am keeping the SF who knows what I may learn in the future, but for now that door is well and truly closed.

Will start build diary in due course ( have taken appropriate measures to prevent repeat of previous disaster. Grandkids no-go area

Hi Spineman,
Sorry to hear of the demise of the San Fran Crying but look forward to seeing your Sark Build.
She is a great kit to build.
