This is my first foray into model ship building after a scratch-built galleon I made at school some 50 years ago.  Diana took some 3 years to build and I enjoyed every minute of it.  I elected to include all sails in a furled state so as to not mask any of the detail.  A lot of the extra information I obtained from the books 'Anatomy of the Ship: Diana' and 'Rigging Period Ship Models' plus a few others and a few visits to HMS Victory at Portsmouth.

An absolutely terrific model, many congratulations!

I started to browse through the gallery this morning for some ideas for the anchors and how to rig them on my nearly-finished HMS Pegasus, and have just come across your pictures - just what I wanted!

Best wishes,
