A few additions to the kit out of the box were made:
A boat (resin kit from caldercraft) was added. It was supposed to be stored on the mortar housing and is now being hoisted out.
A jib stay with traveller was added as well as the missing mizzen topgallant stay.
Furled sails were added. The running rigging to the sails is reduced. Only the main ropes are shown – no bunt lines, leech lines or reef tackles. They would hardly be visible anyway and I was too lazy to provide them all.
The flag is hand painted onto the same cotton as was used for the sails.
This was the most satisfying kit I built so far. Great value for money, many details and the size of the finished model is still easy to handle.
Your Avatar suggests to me that you like wildlife, for example, Geckos... I'm sure you noticed the porpoise pair frolicking at the stem of the Tiger. But did you notice that the captain is pointing to them - and, her "significant other" with long blonde hair is at the tiller?
Thanks for your comments. I also messed up the fly bridge railing -- one of the posts snapped off. I fixed it with CA gel glue.
I buy my Amati kits from Ages of Sail in the US, and they actually had a spare kit they were cannibalizing for parts and got me a missing throttle for this kit. But I see you said "buggered" so you may not be in the US, and in any event that service is reserved for customers who bought the original kit from them, I suspect.
