Hi Steve, I see your in Seattle, I guess that leaves you out for walking on the replica of Philadelphia at Lake Champlain. I have also built Model Shipway's Philadelphia and enjoyed it.------Recently another gunboat (Spitfire) has been found and intact I think there's a CD for sale of the find at the Lake Champlain Maritime Museum in Vermont. A great day trip if your close by. Let me know if you would like some pictures of the replica. ----I stained my model when I was finishing it and was unhappy with the blochey appearance the basswood ended up as. My fault for not putting a sealer on the wood first. I was in a hurry. I'm ok with it now as the real boat was never painted anyway and probably blochy also. Also the cleats that come in the kit are from a Chris craft kit and will not  look very good, Find some wood ones like the real boat had. I also used Syren's Co.'s rigging rope and was very pleased. Feel free to contact me if needed.----Lacy
