Step by step
- 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.
