That's possible as I went and looked and found there were 2 versions I have the gold addition and there is another version with cut away sections so that's actually 3 versions of the ship. With the ebay one I bought the rear figures were plastic and the figure head was just a piece of wood in the shape of the figurehead but only 1/8 thick so cant even carve it without adding more layers to it. The kit I got from ZHL directly has nice metal cast figurehead and the rear figures are also cast metal including the supports for the captains quarters that hangs off the stern. Max is part of this forum you may be able to chat with him and ask if any instructions were made for the version you have.I went onto your build log. I see a lot of differences with the kit supplies materials from mine. The pattern of your bulwarks is different from mine. Mine my be an early version of the kit. Your build looks great.
