    I had fun with the rigging, but wished I had weathered her a bit more. I did get to experiment with a few new techniques I'd never done so I was pretty excited about that.

    Beauty David, great job mate! Don't worry about the weathering being shore-based Royal Navy, with no decks to swab, they had to keep something clean !
    Come to think of it, it's a wonder they didn't have a White Ensign flying from the radio mast !!

    That's a really lovely beauty you've made there.
    And respect for the wiring - I bet something like that would have me going bananas in zero secnds. It looks great. :thumbleft: :thumbright:
