I purchased this back in 2017 from a www.hobbyterra.com; it's very complete and very detailed - all parts are laser cut – even the outside hull planking. I'm adding pictures from 2017 to bring the log up to today picturewise.
This is when I decided to finish the model on Feb 10 of this year.
The first thing I've done is hang up some of the ship plans then sort the various dowels in the kit according to their callout on the plans.
I've also included some pics of my small work area.
Thanks for the kind remarks - more pics today hopefully. I will be replacing the main stay as it was pointed out to me by mistrizl (thank you) that the stay is attached to the main foot instead of surrounding the main mast. I also noticed that on the other end the stay is going through the heart instead of around it. I will just get more practice in serving stays today lol.
ShipWorkshop is a workshop where we design and produce special tools and supplies for ship model builders which will make your ship model look authentic. We'll be glad to help you to design custom tools for your needs. Mechanical and electronics engineering are available.
