This is a plank on bulkhead model based on an actual ship, the fishing smack "Johanna" which was built at James Collins Hoad's shipyard in Rye, England in 1884.  The ship is still sailing.  I enjoyed building the model, and the build log may be found on this site.  I made many wooden parts, and used wooden blocks and such, in lieu of plastic parts which came with the kit.  Other modifications uncluded some rigging details to fit the period and based on photos of the actual ship.  I built the model in 2015 and in 2018 it decided to take flight off the mantle; she was soundly built and her tight rigging and stout hull survived the wreck quite well; she is back up on the mantle.  -Jason
