  1. Hello I am actually in Perth as well and doing the same kit but a lot more heavily bashed. At the point now where I am putting the Standing rigging on and attaching the sails to the yards Just a quick shot taken just before Christmas of the ship with the mast dry fitted temp.
  2. Hello Salil I am sorry do not have a build log for this model. The sheets are ok for the masts and spars take the measurements off of the plan sheets and you should be ok.

I use a hand sprayer and generally give the rigging and ship and good soaking in the oil. I use this as the final sealer on my timber work (after it has been sealed with varnish and turpentine mix) This keeps my rigging nice and it also is handy when you need to get the dust off as it water tights the rigging and ship so you can wash the model with a fine mist to
