Hi all, I'm on a mission. My great great great grandfather was a sailor and served on 5 ships from 1787 through 1793. He sailed to Australia on the Scarborough in the first fleet. He moved to the HMS Sirius, HMS Supply, a hired Dutch Snow called Waakzaamheid then returned as one of the 5 first free settlers to Australia on the Bellona. I decided to build them all. Nuts I know. So I've finished the HMS Supply & moved on to the Bellona. Imagi e how cranky I was after buying the Corel kit when more research turned up another Bellona. An East India company ship that he really sailed on. Bugger! Oh, well I've started now so I may as well enjoy it. Any advice greatfully accepted. Thanks Gan Do
