  1. Great job Vladimir, I personaly think she looks Good without all the rigging. You get to see all the details better. I have a few sailing ships in my stash. But I find my hands shake far to much when attaching small parts, and especially when tieing knots. I will take inspiration from this and build one without the rigging. Paul
  2. Welcome to MSW Eugenio, Some nice models there. You have joined the best model ship forum around. You will find everyone here willing to give any advice you may need. Good luck with your Victory build, looking forward to your build log. Paul

My hands shake far to much when trying to tie the correct knots and when guiding the cord through the blocks. as such all the blocks and areas where the line is tied off are done with simple knots. I am happy with the end result and it does look good displayed on the shelf it sits on. might do the Sampson next from the same kit maker. I have a few sailing vessels in my stash, but not sure about them as I would struggle with all the rigging requirements. trying to
