With the Vasa being a slow progress build, I needed a little something else to fill in with, so out came this one, which I am building for a friend, and given how large it is turning out to be, I shall be glad to get it finished and passed on:

progress has been quite swift, and it has gone together very cleanly and easily. Like many nautical kits, it came with vac sails, which I detest, and so I am going to be making cloth ones, as the sizes of them are quite large and suitable for a sewing machine project alone .

Thanks to those of you who replied, for your earlier comments on the build.

I am now calling this one "done". The sails were made from white cotton cloth (bed sheeting purchased by the metre from John Lewis store). Rigging thread and silk flags were my two major upgrades, over that supplied in the kit, but rigging blocks mostly were as supplied.

I will let images show the rest, as a picture says so much more than words:
