I wish you hadn't waited so long.  This is a beautiful ship you are doing.

Hello again,

Let's start my story!

From my childhood after I read "Captain Blood odyssey" I know that, sometime, I'll start to build my galleon. I bought this kit from Occre but after few days I decided to change everything. For the beginning my decision it was to place a new deck, the main deck, where, for about one year, I started my  apprenticeship. Sure, from the kit I keep only the keel, the frames and first layers strips wood. After that I closed the box of the kit!

After more than one year and half I was here:

Thank you for your nice words! I didn't apply yet any special treatment on the planking wood. Only 'the time" work for this effect!
