Of late Ive just not had much time modelling with work and family issues etc. So this one has taken rather longer than it should of done. I’d like to say that extra time has made it more polished but probably not.
Anyway as always it’s been a learning curve but I’m happy enough how it turned out. Tried some different methods this time such as adhesive wood decking as apposed to painting as I did with previous model ship HMS Queen Mary.
I improved upon my rigging technique which should help with a WW1 bi-plane I have to build in my stash.
Sorry pictures are not the best as it seems to be a challenge to get all the boat in the picture well.

Nice one Carl. Not a bad looking ship actually and you have done it proud.

Hi Carl
That has turned out very nicely indeed. The rigging looks great - a real labour of skill and patience.
