Lovely model Alan.

You manage to build so quickly but without sacrificing any of the Precision you put into your builds.

I am still “slogging on” with my Mayflower but only get a few planks on at a time.

Hope yours continues well.

More amazing work Alan. Cool Cool Cool

I love these ships when they start to get rigged, but I have a question.Confused

I have noticed that this one is being rigged, but the the gun port doors(if that`s the right name Blushing ) have still to be fitted. So, will these be more difficult to fit with the full rig in place as it must mean that tilting the model would be really difficult?

Thanks for the supportive comments guys, always appreciated....Cool Cool

@Delboy - Derek, your observations are spot on. This build is following the instructions in terms of build sequence and to date there has been no mention of fitting the dummy guns or gun port lids. With only 6 more build stages to go it will be interesting to see what problems, if any, are encountered when these items are being fitted....Cool Cool

Regards

Alan

I was so tempted to put this one away for the day i get to retire but not sure i could ever do it the justice it would need.

To me it looks the most detailed of all the kits so far on this channel and yours is going to look really good when its all finished.

Thanks for looking in and commenting guys, really appreciated.....Cool Cool

@ Birdaj - Tony, she's not a quick build and one that needs a great deal of patience. Looking at your work I would say you could do this justice. Perhaps treat it as a second build, doing a little at a time over a long period of time... I think you'd enjoy it....Cool Cool

@ Magpie - great to see you back posting again Chris, hope all is good with you.....Cool Cool

Loving this build with its fantastic detail. Your work is superb and I'm envious of your skill.

I tried to get a look at all your pictures but this site just lets us down every time even with lots of reloads.

That's a really nice build. I must say the sails are going up pretty quick
Man he took his time in the sun
Had a dream to understand
A single grain of sand
He gave birth to poetry
But one day will cease to be
Greet the last light of the library...We were here!
