Is that it for the year George or can you get another one in before the holidays?
PS: what vintage is the Sun?

     Hi George,
           Great job looks superb, have you had her in the water? Merry Christmas to you and yours.
        Cheers,
               Peter.
     
The photo is my Lowgarth Mountfleet models but my own design and build (the kit quality and fit was very poor) I scatch built the superstructure from photos of the Foylegarth and scaled it off the figures. Sails superbly.
