Thank You. You've created a kit that is very high quality. That is why I've decided to take on this project first before some of the other kits I have of lesser quality. I know there are going to be some challenges but it will not be because the kit falls short.

I found a solution to the problem of the keel being bowed out of the box. I created a jig and decided to put the entire keel together before tapering it down. This way I can center the notched pieces with ease. I'm hoping once I start attaching the frames that will resolve the bowing.

I got the first level planking done on both sides. There where a few unexpected challenges but I'm moving along. I have seven weeks left before the Connecticut show. even if I don't make the dead line completely I will bring the model to the show as is, unless I meet with a complete disaster before hand.

I've got the cap rail installed and sanded down. Not a perfect job by any means. I took a little to much off on the forward starboard side. I don't think it's a deal breaker but I wish I could do it over again. It's a learning experience to say the least. I only have 23 days left before the model show. I will need to work on it everyday until the show.

I completed the task of inserting the nails (fishing line). Unfortunately I'm not going to have this model anywhere near presentable for the model show on Saturday. I regret not starting this model last year maybe around June. That might of given me enough time to complete it. With that said, overall I'm pleased with the build up to this point.
