This is my very first ship model ever.
Scratch build. Wood - pear. Ancre plans and monograph by Franco Fissore.

I will try to log my building process here and will be very thankfull for everybody who will dare to join by telling my mistakes or giving priceless sugestions.

And I'm sorry for my english there will be many mistakes 'couse I am from Lithuania but I will try my best.

So lets begin in short by pictures to see what I' ve done till now

and next job is to start joining futokcs parts and assembling them to keel

thank you Uwek.

as I need to think forward, I see that rigging "period" is coming:) Of course my attitude is to do everything from scratch and I see that I need to obtain best detailed and simply to understand information about rope making, making sails and rigging... please recommend any sources and best books to order. Thanks in advance.
