  10. Hello Vince, Thank you very much for your comments and praise, I am really honoured, you like my ship. This card model is in a scale 1/90, all photos and process is described here: http://modelforum.cz/viewtopic.php?f=177&t=43575 All is in Czech, but there are more than 2000 pics and drawings from the beginning to the end of the progress. The rigging was made according to Payne´s engraving, Landstrom´s plan of SoS rigging and the books - mainly: The rigging of the ships in the days of spritsail topmast, 1600-1720, by R.C.Anderson and according plans of similar ships from this age (for example Susan Constant). I also cooperated with two captains and experts, they helped me to achieve more realistic result.
