Greetings!
This is my Cutty Sark - 1/84 scale.
The kit is by Artesiana Latina - an entirely wooden model.
Production time - about 3000 hours.
The hull is made of walnut, the decks are made of maple.
The masts are walnut and beech, the sails are not fabric - I used the same technology as Le Soleil Royal.

Here is the pictures:

I have this kit in storage, waiting for me to build more experience. I got a good price from hobby shop going out of business on the kit.

Very good looking build and love all the sails and rigging.

Do you have a link to how you did your sails?

Are your sails made of sailcloth? They look very nice, did you treat material for aged look?

I am learning about sails, near that stage on my current build.
They are from nylon bags - You can find in any supermarket :)
I use airbrush to color them in base white, then again with the airbrush with some brown color I made them to look aged :)
The vertical lines in this scale I made with pencil.
The surround rope is sinthetic tread :)
