Hello to all from Salisbury Uk and at sea. I saw this site while looking for information on how to get on with my Mantua Armed Pinnace model. I was plesantly surprised to hear from some of the expert builders that the instructions are not good... so it is not me that is the dummy hahah. I am a merchant seaman and the majority of my builds have been with bought wooden model kits and simple tools. I enjoy doing the hulls but the rigging has not really worked for me on other models so far. A future project I would like to do is to scratch build a Yorkshire Coble so if anybody out there has experience on this I would be very interested. Thanks for allowing me to join the site.
