Ahoy shipmates Here is another build I finished up on 4 months ago I had this kit for 38 years and its finally done.. The kit is Mantua Sergo all wood double planked the kit cvonsist of lime wood along with walnut for the second planking.., the fittings look like they came from fort knox all brass something I regret here is that I painted the intire model to represent its natural state if I had to do it all over again I would elect to paint this vessel here she is Lord Nelsons Flagship.

The photos are a little bit on the small side Franklyn, but from what I can see that is some very detailed and complicated rigging and building. Nice job.

The build looks stunning, I hope you can get together some larger pictures so we can see it a bit more closely. I'm not sure what you mean by you painted it in it's natural state as opposed to Nelson's Flagship.

Lovely model though and should really be in a museum somewhere.

This is a superb model Franklyn, the pictures do not do the model or your skill justice. That rigging alone would drive me insane before I even started it!

Great build from me.
