- the problem with such bigger ships like clippers, first rates etc. is the fact, that you have to make these things, like belaying points, blocks, guns etc. not 5, 10 or 20 times - it is immediately dozens or even hundreds times.
My great respect to you and all other modelers building these models - I know very well, why I built a bomb vessel with only 8 guns, reduced rigging etc.

Love this ship Rob. I'm a big fan of the Great Republic and found a huge amount of info on her in a book called "The American Built Clipper Ship" by William L Crothers. He covers every Clipper built in America from 1850 to 1856 including the GR. If you haven't seen this book it really deserves your attention if your into the Clippers and there're lots of details for the Great Republic. I'm enjoying your work here very much. It's beautiful.

yes that book is excellent !!!
