This Canadian Grand Banks schooner was the first kit I built. It is accompanied in its display by the Canadian dime depicting the Blue Nose. The display also includes the Blue Nose postage stamp first-day-of-issue. The ship is obviously a Canadian icon.
Absolutely Beautiful!!!! Love the frapped lines on the running out tackle. One question regarding the blocks, which are beautifully made. Why are there single and double blocks for each pair instead of the normal two singles which would have been the case for 12 pounders on the QD? From Caruana 's The History of English Sea Ordnance, Volume II, page 386, The running out tackle consisted of a rope (fall), and two blocks (both single except for 32 pounders... Just curious.
