Excellent modelling Godo.

I have two of these corvettes and they sail beautifully.

Make sure you ballast yours down to the waterline to get the best out of it.

What are you planning to build next ?

Let me make a question, I put the Colors at the high of the mast, IT is correct? when I was at the Mexican Navy, once the ship are not tie to the pier, the colors have to be at the very high.
