Did some more to this.









I would love to add some figures but can't find any to add to it.

The model is one thing, the water sculpting is something else! 8)

This landlubber is feeling a bit seasick just looking at it, so realistic is the appearance.

Wonderful work on those waves!

Hi all next update





I was going to add some stays but Airfix would have you use the God awful plastic coated cotton ratline thingies so no hole through the crows nest



Wish I hadn't added the main stays now as drilling out the holes in the crows nest will probably slacken them all off
