Looks great willy, love the iconical spanish color combination.
hello Maarten, thank you
sometimes I dare to let go of the color, but I really like painted ships and sometimes with a bit of paint some flaws can be obscured, a ship in varnish is also very beautiful but you also see the flaws much more

Did you permanently install the yards already, or only temporary?
hello uwe
these two yards have been definitively attached, must now of course be careful not to falter during the further construction, initially did not intend to attach them, but in my enthusiasm I have connected them to the mast

I would not install more, and maybe you will dismantle the two also, if they are hindering you in installing the standing rigging of all parts of the masts.
When you prepare the other yards, please take care and a close look where the holes in the blocks are. You know the hole is where the "top side of a sheave inside the block" would be

So if a block is fixed to the yard ar,. the hole of your block should be closer to the yard - means close to the strop

You got to just love a Spanish Man of War decked out in war paint:p. You have a most excellent build. I have no so much experience building a Occre kit. I do however have a Occre kit, HMS TERROR. Did encounter a issue, warped FK/deck. Waiting to hear back from the e-mail I sent if they will replace!
