It sure does work! I'm now moving on. I've made a lot of mistakes  on this, my first, build, but have managed to keep on going and am hopefully learning from those errors. As with most things the builder knows where the mistakes are and the casual observer doesn't. My friends think she looks great. Perhaps you folks will enjoy a couple of glasses of fine California wine before you look too close. Cheers, Bill.

Well, I finished my work on the Albatros by OcCre. I'm glad I chose that as my first build. I learned a great deal and the kit was forgiving enough to let me correct my mistakes. There were several times when I felt like I built it more than once. I added a few things that were not included with the kit and I added sail just for the experience of doing so. I spray starched the sails and mounted them in such a way as to try and simulate her being at sea.  

 

I want to thank all of you who helped me with this project even if I just studied your work. It was a lot of fun.

 

Now on to my next project......the Badger by Caldercraft.post-936-0-16564800-1372531790_thumb.jpgpost-936-0-27987700-1372531855_thumb.jpgpost-936-0-55662300-1372531887_thumb.jpg
