Thank you my friend for very kind words
He he … there is something as it is said ... "monkey see monkey do!" . There are so many interesting things in this world, which from time to time, almost continuously take my attention, so I have million of hobbies (modeling, guitar, painting, photography, writing and publishing short stories on FB, cooking, gardening, traveling, visiting old places, collecting and listening music, research history, reading books, visiting museums theaters opera ballet cinemas exhibitions concerts, etc. etc.) so my day is short for everything I want and everything I have to do for living, including my job, very close family relations particularly with Hothead and Princess, social life with many friends, and of course, my private emotional life …
So, Her Majesty has to be patient and to wait for me
I think I used unappropriated word. I agree that netting was not in use in Her working years.
But safety fence? There are some old photos where are fences on fore and aft deck are presented, also on Campbell`s plans
So, considering my deccission to make model designated only to stay in my living room, which will be some kind of mix between C-plans and photos of details at present day, combining with details from Lou`s photos, with all sails spreaded, this is it
Almost same story as ancient fortress here in Belgrade, named Kalemegdan fortress, which was destroyed and rebuilded more than 20 times in more than 2000 years of it`s history … where you can find remains of walls and structure from Roman empire time, midlle age time, Turkish time, etc etc. Onde day I was speaking with custos of museum and asked him - why you do not reconstruct a whole fortress? And he said - And in wish period exactly to reconstruct? Same thing. To admit, I am not passioned in that way to research and reconstruct Her Majesty exactly to one period of her long life. I enjoy in working on Her, and I will enjoy in her look when she will be finished one day
Thanky you again for your very kind words and wishes
