very nice indeed. Bluenose and Bluenose II seem popular with model kit companies - is the Model Shipway one the best (detail, quality of parts, etc)?

Welcome aboard Ships of Scale! The Bluenose is a great model when finished. How 'bout this crazy early winter we are having. We got our first snow flurry in September, unbelievable!

Thank you. I think Bluenose is made by a number of companies for a couple of reasons: it looks great with all of its sails set; it is relatively easy, but gives the newer modeler a chance to try a number of different modeling techniques, like planking the deck, planking the hull, making masts and sails. Yet at the same time since it is a schooner with only fore and aft sails, its rigging Is not as difficult as tall ships with square sails. As for the quality of Model Shipways over other companies, I am not sure I know. My Bluenose is MS as is Fair American, which is my current model. I found that with both models it is fun to "kit bash" (or modify) certain elements to enhance the looks, proved more realism, etc. Ji,

Aye, I see what you mean, plenty of sail but minimal rigging - exactly what you need for a racing ship.
