Good evening everyone

 

thank you for the comments

dont think i have ever built anything, quite like this, yes the box art is very different to the kit, but for an OOB kit the instructions are good, the material is good, everything fits, and it is certainly a nice looking subject, would be even better if i was a half decent builder

the deck fittings have had attention today, the cockpit breakwater, cabin hosing and various bits are in progress on the table, including making your own blocks

thank you, but i wanted her to look clean and tidy, i seam to be more natural at the weathered look without trying, oh well i will have to try harder on the next one

 

oh did you hear that a Royal George @ 1/64 is on the cards from designer @Chris Watton years ahead but something to look forward as i head towards my final breath

I think you should be pleased with yourself Kevin, it’s looks really good. I think your doing a fine job on what looks to be a very challenging build. I’ve just had a go a a wooden boat myself and although picking the simplest thing I could find it is still far from perfect.

Good evening everyone

 

 

Deck fittings continue, and now heavily into the mast work, i am still getting 10/10 from this build

I think some of them are beautiful 
If I were Keats I would write an ode to a trakker and end it thus!   

  "Beauty is truth, truth beauty,—that is all
                Ye know on earth, and all ye need to know."

What machine on all the earth hath more truth than a tractor ?  xD
