Fabulous work Martyn, she will be stunning when she's finished - well done, you're showing great skill here!! Drool Cool ThumpUp

Can I just ask what type of gold paint you are using for the bling? It looks a nice yellowy gold, or is it actually real gold leaf that you're applying!?

Hi Martyn, BigGrin

Just had a catch read of your diary and everything is very neat and tidy.

Your patience with the rat lines has shown through, because they look very uniform from top to bottom.

WTG, keep up the good work. Cool

Been a while since I checked out the build diaries and must say yours has come along a real treat.

Some very careful and patient work you have been putting in but it's all paying off with a lovely build.

Happy Modelling

BigGrin Hi guys BigGrin

I have fitted some more bling to the bow and rigged the catharping Cool

Next job the stays on the foremast - mainmast - and mizzenmast ThumpUp as you can see all done and not to much of a hassle BigGrin

On to the next part of the build backstays BigGrin

Drilling out the holes for the belay pins behind the rat lines on the bulwark was a bit of a hassle but got there in the end Confused , I have made the first of the main mast backstays BigGrin

Thanks for looking rgd Martyn
