Wow!--a ton of great pictures. On my kit I have the first few "chapters" done--I've barely started. It's going to be put on hold for a while though because of an even more fun project. The framing for my Caldercraft HMS Victory is complete, so today I begin the planking process. As soon as I'm able I'll put some pictures up--I'm temporarily without a cell phone.
