Looks like the wait was worth it as you have done an excellent job! Your rigging looks very clean and neat. I would want to take closeups of it too! Won't be long now and you will get to start all over on the next one with a lot of knowledge and experience gained.

Good to hear from you - I was getting worried. Good work with your rigging. The whole boat has a great look to it.

That is one handsome model, Elijah.  Very well done!   Where did you get the plans for the launching ways?  Were they part of the kit?

Hi Dave! Thank you very much! Yes, the launching ways plans were part of what came with the kit. I did add a few supports so that the boat wouldn't fall over from a gust of wind.

Thanks Mike! I really like the way it is turning out.

It's good to hear from you again, JP! I tried to get some nice close-us and III think that turned out nicely. Thanks guys, though you do know that I pick all the pictures I post ;).

Just stumbled over this log, and have read a lot of it. Excellent work (as all have said) but, more importantly, excellent attitude- and that is where the excellent work comes from.

Thanks David. I have not decided on the case yet. Though, it's not done yet! I still have to finish and build the main and fore gaffs, as well as all the rigging for them. After that are the flags and I'm done. Thanks for stopping by!

Thank you Lawrence! I am currently waiting for my restock of rigging line that I ordered to arive. Until then I am having to have rigging on hold. I can still work on the fore gaff and the flags though! Take care, Lawrence :) .

Elijah - I had a case made for my gun station build. I'm blown away at how it looks under plexiglass. It starts looking like some sort of museum display. Every time I walk by it I stop, lean down and have a look inside.

 

My point being - get a case! It'll cost ya, but it adds a whole new dimension to the overall look.

 

You might check around your area for a plastics company. I found a local shop and had them make it.

As of 8:26 this morning my Phantom has been finished! :dancetl6: I have yet to get some photos of it, but when I do I will post them! Thank you all very much for following along with this build and giving me plenty of help and advice, as well as compliments and constructive criticism! I hope to see you all in my next build! I have not yet started a log because I still need to make a case and reorganize the workshop for the new boat.

Congratulations on completing your first build Elijah. You've done a great job and it seems you've learned a lot along the way too, which is what it's all about. I look forward to following your next build too.
