Deck 'furniture' being added slowly but surely, each is a little project on their own.

I had some fun with the anchor winch! My brass bending skills is up to no good, so i decided it would be easier cutting up the brass rod and soldering together. The mast 'stump' had to to be shaped from a dowel to octagonal shape, some very careful filing was required. All in all happy with the results.

One thing i've realized is that i'm a really slow builder and that I suck at keeping a proper build log. Hats of to the guys and girls that take the time to update their build logs on a regular basis!
Some progress - I have decided to try and make my own sails. Nice of Billing Boats to include a set of sails, but it has these horrible white painted markings on that is a PITA to remove. I've gone with the tanbark look, as my research suggest that these were commonly used.

Full set of sails - also tried to give the sails some color variation.20200510_124230.jpg
and the masts and spars, finished painting them, now need to add the bits and pieces.
