  1. Very simplistic kit with many issues. Still a beautiful subject. Should have gone for Model Shipways or Amati.
  2. The instructions suggested some ridiculously simplified scheme of attaching rudder, so I had to scratch build some better version with brass strip and nails I had left from previous builds. I contemplated few options to display the model - with or without the sails, or even scratch building section of a ship’s hull with davits. Ultimately because the model is so simplistic and provided sails being of average quality I settled on displaying the boat with sail furled around the mast.

  5. My first 'big' ship project, and second wooden kit. Completed in 2019, I learned a lot from building it.

  6. Excellent kit from Russian manufacturer Falkonet, extremely detailed and very well engineered.
