Kostas!  Glad you re-created your SJN build here.  I enjoyed following your build while I was constructing my San Juan so it's glad to see your progress again. Very clean, nice work!

That's an excellent job your doing. I have read somwhere on this site you can age the sails using teabags to get that old look about them. How do you feel about the running rigging colourwise? Are you still happy with the beige rope?

Completed builds:
1:64 Rattlesnake, Mamoli
1:64 HMS Bounty, Mamoli
1:54 Adventure, Amati

Thank you all or your remarks,
@coleman, I have tried to "age" running rigging, tea wasnt as good as coffee, in fact the threads that hunging on sails are in facted aged... Too much work for very small difference, but in my next built I will make a bucket of coffee and rest biege thread insde.... for a week and check it before starting rigging
