Very nice work and a lot of hours on that, plus what's in the display case.

Skills I never had, or will have.

Love ships of that era, but have yet to build one.  Spiling that rounded stern must have been a tough job!

Hi rocketman2000.  After I due a little more work on the bow=that triangular exstetion of the top deck.  I will marine epoxie the outside of the hull. At that point I am hopeing the rounded stern will be ridged enuf to hold it's shape when I cut it off at that verticul line, to remove all the decks, so that I can start working on the inside.

Interesting.  Never seen a bow like that on a ship that early.  Harbinger of future.
