I plan to build the Jolly Roger as a french frigate la Flore.

I will add details, make sails, masts and spars.

So, here is the start.

your shipmate,

Ziggy

The big failure of the kit is that the spars (horizontal and vertical) are way too weak in the small scale, in styrene.

The wonderul Revell Charles W. Morgan has the same issue, it can't be rigged.

If those are all replaced with a more sturdy material like wood or brass, a full rig can be set up.
