Hi there,  That's an excellent build,  I hope there are more pics,    I want to see how you've done the masts and rigging.   I'm building the Cervia as the Empire Raymond in grey livery with plank on frame hull.   Hope there's more to come.   Best regards,  Geoff.

All my senior moments seem to be joined together these days.
