Thanks for the comment.  I worked very hard to make this ship as accurate as possible.  While the kit came with copper plates, I didn't care for the look. It is likely according to my research it started with "white stuff" on the hull and was coppered a few years after commissioning - plus it looks so much better.  Even the rigging has my best attempt at the right knots.  I added lines that weren't on the plans based on research I did.  While the sails aren't on it, the ropes that they would be attached to are.

Glenn,

this build of yours, based on your excellant Prior Research work, has poved and turned out to one of the most impressive model swan class vessels in scale 1:64. Due to your comment on the sail Controlling ropes I shall again be encouraged to study you pics over again relatingly
