Great looking  Revenue Cutter! What material did you use for the sails? I have at least one on the ways that will eventually have sails sets.

Thank you ejhbuilder. I bought the material at a local fabric store. If I were to make sails again I would make them out of silkspan. There are a couple online methods to make sails out of silkspan and I think they would look great. You can make a rack to hang the silkspan on and then wet it. It will sag and dry that way giving you billowing sails.  Good luck.

Thanks for the info CPS, think I will go with the silkspan. I do have some ancient "ballooner cloth" purchased for a model many years ago but never used but it is too heavy for 1:96 scale I think.
