Very nice John, love the work on the gallery. If you redo the window frames I would indeed go thinner if that is feasible. In a picture it always looks simple untill you have to do it.

Thank you Maarten for the nice comments, I still have to catch up on your plank on frame build, I have been struggling these last few weeks, I had a double cortisone injection in my left shoulder and it is steadily coming better and I also had to have a cortisone injection into the palm of my left hand, that one really hurt but the hand is getting better, I guess I am just feeling a little bit on the down side but that should turn around soon.
Sorry i am rambling on a bit.

I hope you had a great Christmas and I wish you all the best for a Happy Healthy and prosperous New Year,

best regards your friend John.

Hi John,

Hope you get well soon, you can allways already study on a next build :) to chear you up.
Here all fine, allthough we are still in a partial Covid lockdown, but healthy and happy so for us no reasons to complain.

G'day Maarten, talking about studying for the next build, this will be one of them sometime in the future ???,

I bought this off Face Book Market Place just three or four streets from where i live, all 135 issues and contents are there, I paid AUD $500, the man that was selling the kit said he did not have enough time to build her, all he had managed to do was the basic frame work, see below,

These are some pics from the net of a built Sovereign of the Sea's, I do not know who to give credit to for the model or pics all i can say is that he or she has done a really great job of building her and if mine comes out as half as nice I will be pleased,

if anybody knows who built this model I would like to know so I can give them the credit they deserve,

Admin if it is not OK to post these pics you can remove them,

best regards john,

Hi John,

This is the Sergal kit, not the Deagostini one.
There are deagostini kits build here in the kit section which are bashed. With some bashing she will change into a great model.

I have been running low on these plastic cocktail forks, I originally bought them 40 odd years ago when building my model of the Prince,

I had made a mould and had cast some extra's but have been on the look out for some more, well my luck came in and a couple of weeks ago I managed to buy another 66 of them so I should have enough to see me through,
