I have had a request to post some pictures of my current build of the "Belem" by A/L. I am not sure if this is the right place, so if please guide me. I started this build in December 2019 and have been fairly steady at it through the pandemic. Accordingly I have developed tendinitis says my physiotherapist while working on the rigging and have had to put it aside for a few weeks while I heal. This is my ninth build and far the most difficult. If you are new to ship modelling do not attempt this until you are familiar with how these kits are put together. The instructions are complicated, especially the rigging. I still have two topsails to rig and then the six stay sails. As requested here are some pictures in her present state.20200223_083407.jpg20200223_083422.jpg20200330_095838.jpg20200330_095908.jpg20200330_095922.jpg20200504_213352.jpg20200622_203342.jpg20200622_203403.jpg

Micro-Mark had this ship on sale, so I purchased it. Received it today. Hope I do as well as you. Looks great.
