Thought I'd check in here. As I understand it there will be various options available . If the kits are a ways off from being available might you please provide a rough cost idea for the first option as a laser cut package for structural model ( frames , deck beams etc. ) .

Thank you

Since my surgery I have been having problems with my short-range vision and decided to finish the build in the navy board style with stub masts and no rigging. This is a few photos of the finished model.

I would like to thank everyone that helped with the build especially Dave Stevens with his innovative approach to building and assembling the frames with magnets.

Hi Don, sorry to hear about your eyes, it is hard to do anything when you can’t see. I think there will be a Matthew build in your future.
