Hello Donny,Your doing a great build,nice clean workmanship,what are the green tool holders,interesting idea.Edwin

Hi Ed, Thanks for you encouragement. They are spools from embroidery thread cobbs. I own and run a commercial embroidery company, so am always trying to find a use for things that are thrown away. I also use "blunt" (old) needles to secure a lot of the work, they are very strong, thin and leave very little trace of a hole. Best regards

G'day Donny, nice clean build, is she single or double planked, I built the Construto HMS Victory and they included wood for second planking but I didnt need it, best regards John.

Hi John, It was supplied with a double plank option. I chose to keep it to the orginal only. Lovely challenge. Thanks for your interest. All of the best, Donny

Hello Donny,thanks for reply,the Admiral had an inkling that was what they were,recycling the way to go,as for the needles,I saw a thread on MSW whereas somebody made rigging tools from used ones,ie cut off the eye half way making different types of,hooks some were bent others flattened and attached to slim wooden handles etc,maybe your doing that already.But to say again you do nice work,keep posting.Edwin
