I was given this model by a fellow modeler. His intentions were to do a restoration of it. I might have underestimated the undertaking but it will definitely be fun to restore, as I have never done a restoration before. As you can see the orginal builder didnt use any blocks at all in the rigging and then the deadeyes are another matter. Surprised that there are only 2 broken parts, the jib boom at the rear and one of the hand rails. Those 2 are easley fixable. I'll be adding my twist on how I do sails and my style of rigging. But also this will give me some experience in experimenting with different types of rigging types. Granted this will be one that i womt work on all the time but I'll use this ship as a getaway from future builds when I get bored. With them amount of wood filler that was left on the ship I will be painting the ship once I get all rigging dismantled and try to pull the masts out too.
