if you talking the little figure it is ok but the details are really hard to see as it is so small

I'll be following your blog with interest. I'm also working on the MS Rattlesnake. Here's the link if you wanna take a peek:

Hello JosephH, You have chosen a very interesting little ship to build and it should give you hours of enjoyment building her. Many years ago they built a replica of the Rattlesnake in our town of Sutton ,Ont. and sailed her to Florida. It was I believe a 1/2 scale and the builder said he wished that he had gone to the full size, but by then it was to late to change it. I am sure you will have fun with this build as she is a very nice looking little ship, ENJOY.
Regards Lawrence

So I got all the flats sections done the next parts start curving inwards more which is the bevelled areas this part goes from frame 9 to frame I I have the outer part perfect now need to get the inner parts fixed. The problem is with back to school I am putting in 15 and 16 hrs a day so until sunday when my 3 day weekends start its just a few mins after work while I relax before bed to work on it.
