I think that is what they had posted when I looked the other day.

Lets hope they get back online and shipping soon, too good a shop to have them out for long time.

They are an essential business, in my world anyway....don't care what politicians say.

Build completed! Got very confusing at the end of the rigging process. Plans were not detailed enough for a beginner, still very happy with the outcome. The big plus was all I learned during the build. Next time I'll toss out a lot of parts and order third party replacements, things like blocks, capstan, binnacle, etc. The longboat from Falkonet really came out nice. Several blocks were not used. I'm assuming most were for halyards but with no sails installed guess there were not needed. Thanks everyone for the comments and help along the way. Next project will be something a little easier.20200606 Rattlesnake 01.jpg20200606 Rattlesnake 02.jpg20200606 Rattlesnake 04.jpg20200606 Rattlesnake 05.jpg20200606 Rattlesnake 13.jpg20200606 Rattlesnake 14.jpg

I've ordered Amati #1406/01 Viking Longboat, Drakkar. My wise is Scandinavian so thought I'd do something from her neck of the woods
Thank you, STGCS. Great choice of the kit! Well..., we hope you will start a build log?

Congrats on finishing a great looking model, and on all that you have learned. Rigging that Viking ship should be a nice breather after Rattlesnake. I recently finished this book on the Rattlesnake which I enjoyed immensely and would highly recommend should you have the interest:
