  1. Last night activities. Added the second light. Second jib is up but not fully attached
  2. You are so right. It will be the first thing people will see. 😊
  3. More details were added to the various sails. Time to mount one of the jibs. I still have to work on giving the sheet some life. What do you use?
  4. More work on the sails Preparing the lops for one of the jib. It is a long process but here is an idea of the final look and feel.
  5. The sails are now dry. Time to start attaching them to the various booms.
  6. Staining the sails. I will start mounting them as soon as they are dry.
  7. Thank you so much for the kind words. This link is great!! what an awesome project to follow. thank you so much for sharing.
  8. Stitched up every sails to get them ready to be added to the model. Next step is to prepare the stain for fabric to color some of the sails.

    This is great. It is easy to implement. I will give it a try. Thank you.
  12. Starting to work on the sails.. I decided to use the sails that came with the kit but to 'upgrade' the shape and the roping around. Opened the factory stitches, trace the shape from the plan and cut the excess. Glue a rope all around the perimeter. Final product.
  13. Typically you would have multiple Sanding sessions starting with the lower number first, 200, 300, 400... This until the Hull is smooth to your desire.
