Thanks, they don't usually get much response - too small, I suppose!   Bob

Never too small Bob. A beauty. I am envious of your rigging skills. I keep trying though.

Another lovely model. I have to admit I have a soft spot for schooners.

Hi Positive a lovely model, very well presented.  Were these boats also in the fruit trade?

I'm Positively delighted to see another of your fine creations, especially a sailing ship. I suspect you underestimate the pleasure your models give to the Mayhemers.  :-)) 


(Still got the same Parker ballpoint I see - can you still get refills for it?)

Thanks,
Yes, she was in the fruit trade, dashing out to the Mediterranean and back in as short a time as possible.   
Pen refill ran out ages ago, it is now only a photgraphy pen! :-))
The rigging is the easiest part as it is just fine copper wire glued on in short lengths.   There are no knots anywhere.
On this one, if you look closely, you will see my latest development - tiny deadeyes, less than 1mm in diameter.
