Wonderful model and exquisite work.  Thanks for sharing it.  Question:  is this what is known as a 'Marconi' or Lateen rig?  It appears all the sails are hung from gaff booms.

Thank you for your praise. Rigging was as kit described.

Marconi? I do not understand the term.

Have a nice day.

I'm not sure either what the "Marconi" rig entails or where the term comes from.  I was just curious because whatever its called its an unusual style of rig.

Did a bit of research on types of rigs.  What your model has is the lateen rig.  The Marconi rig (still not sure of where the term comes from) is the most typical of modern sailing rigs -- where the triangular sail is secured at its luff (leading edge) to the mast (or to a forestay).
