After four long years, I've finished it! This is a modified version of Model Shipways' Fair American kit. I built it fully rigged with sails, and with bowsprit rigging more suited to a ship of 1800, including martingale stays and a dolphin striker. This is my first really serious build, although I built a ship model before this that turned out poorly, and some smaller models while I worked on this one. I'm really proud of it, and I hope you all enjoy!
