That's looking really nice. It's amazing how little rigging adds complexity to the model. Rigging the deadeyes is bit fiddly especially at 1/100 scale but you did really good job. Can't wait for the update.
P.S.
If you think this is tricky wait for the ratlines. Doing it proper way even at 1/84 scale takes up some practise. I barely started and I had to get new tweezers already so I can actually do something with the tiny rope...

Regards
Tom

Thank you Tom.
Not quite your amazing standards but I'm reasonably pleased with it so far.

Thank you but you are being too polite Chris. I'm happy with my build but there is so many things I'd do differently now... There is no option but starting something new once I complete Victory :)

I feel the same Tom.
I have thoroughly enjoyed building the victory model but there is so much that really needs improvement and the only realistic answer would be to start again and I'm not doing that.
The learning curve has been greatly eased by the manuals and videos available and the help of forum members throughout and I would recommend it to anyone who has built at least a couple of ships before. Not for the total novice I don't think.
Having said all this, life is one big learning curve and hopefully my next build will be an improvement.
Chris

So, not having done too much apart from a small amount of initial rigging work, I thought I would upload some "fairly" recent pics of my build with apologies if I am repeating any earlier ones.










You will notice that I have removed the bowsprit for the time being as I found it cumbersome when switching from side to side with the rigging.
