  1. i think you have become one of my top 5 modellers that i follow, stunning work
  2. its actually a fun build as well, i need a mast in early to check the revised rigging works, as i am hoping to make my own rope on this one, also will allow me time to get some aerly practice for making the sails from scratch i am try to achieve this file:///C:/Users/testuser/Desktop/all%20my%20builds/Amerigo%20Vespucci/f477t1284p142224n8_iSgdhECY.jpg

  6. lovely build, and i have just reread your log what i do like very much, is the way that @Jamie @ Sovereign Hobbies made a comment, and reasons given wrt paint scheme, if all comments about builds were like that, we would all be happier modellers, i appreciate you took his comments and changed your colour scheme, as a result you have something to be even prouder off, well done

  8. good morning everyone thank you for comments and likes well the forward wheel house is finished for now, im happy with the way she turned out, thats most of the big stuff done, still a a ton of smaller stuff to remake, scratch, find or repair
  9. adjustable was, very much so, in fact they were constantly adjusting themselves lol, all my boats will be moved this summer into a dedicated display area, so no doubt i will have to put them all back into place
  10. good evening everyone thank you for comments and likes the forward wheel house is still getting attention, having learnt to solder on the bluebell build it has paid dividends on the brass canopy the raft for the midships boats have been made up, still to be painted
