Hoping my lights arrive from Evilbay soon, so I can get some pics organised!
Thanks everybody for not pointing my awful grammatical gaff, and understanding exactly what meant!
I will miss following this build
Do I get the feeling you may be watching out for icebergs on your next project.
It is a bit disappointing when you have to redo something, but I think the fix will look the business.
I am miss following this build when you finally commission him mate.

Russ, I completely agree with Si! Be sure to post a LOT of pictures of this beauty when you finish!

Andy - who has been watching this build with great interest, and once lived in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada (but has long since moved )
I'll join the chorus and encore on a great job on the rigging. It always makes a ship look complete.
I am looking forward to the flag hoisting. I shouldn't say it but it almost seems inevitable that the decal would fall apart given the trials and tribulations of this build.
