  1. 18th c. French Gabarre credited with the discovery of the west coast of Australia. Utilized as a supply ship for the French navy ( hence the name ). POF scratch built. 1700 hrs.
  2. Two questions: 1) How can I delete a single photo in the gallery of completed models? 2) I’ve uploaded a number of photos in the completed model gallery that show up in the “edit” area but do not show up in the actual gallery. How do I get them added?
  3. I found some references and this is where they steered me. The client wanted sails. Anyway, it’s essentially finished and waiting for the display case to arrive. Interesting adventure.
  4. This where I started. You get the picture.
  5. Sure. But I’ll need to read about how to do that first.

    Greetings. I’ve been scratch building 18th c. Naval ships for around 30 yrs, having just finished the “Gros Ventre” a la Gerard Delacroix and am thinking of a next project. Thought I would join up to see what folks are doing. Henry Drinker
  7. I am restoring a kit model of a square topsail schooner which was caked in dust and grime, all the rigging in tatters. No vessel name. The kit/model is probably 40 years old And has sentimental value to its owner.I wonder if anyone knows of a kit of such a vessel which could be an aid in rigging details and deck details. Or any other pertinent references.
