    Looking really nice Lou but i think that your rigging is overscale. It just might be my impression since i am not a ship person and also not familiar with that scale but i think that they need to be thinner. The ship has changed completely with the funnels in place. It looks really great.

    They are a bit Brian...but I always used this steel wire ...find it very handy ( meta nindrizzah)....pics show rigging much thicker than they originally are...but I see your point...yes it 's coming on nicely ...plenty of work still to do...but I'm working flat out to finish it...Smile

    Beautiful detail. It is going to be an attractive ship. Looks great and not the usual grey colours.

    Don't worry Louis,

    Stephen Calleja shall have a good stock of Trumpeter 1:350 ships at a very slashed price. If I were you, I would pay him a visit.
