Hello Glen,
Good photos of the entire length.
Even though the view of the lower hull is not good, one can see the shine in the copper.
Looks good. I suppose those copper hulls must have turned green over time.
What do you know about that?
Mike

Thanks Mike the copper likely would have not been bright even by the time it was applied completely and most modelers “age” the copper. I like the bright copper although I thought it still might brown a bit over time especially, it looks cool to me this way, the problem I found was the oils from the hand colored the
Copper unevenly as it inevitably darkened and so I cleaned it back to bright and sprayed it.

Snail pace changes for the most part, the clove hitched ratlines don't really show that much but putting up the foretopmast sure is rewarding to the eye.
I must say the upper deadeyes get awfully small to try to rove so some challenge getting those done acceptably

Really looks nice Glen.
Now it becomes a "tall" ship.
Good idea with that soft material in the cradles to protect that copper finish.

Thanks Mike, rmks2000, its been slower in regards to this stage, as I constantly need references for details and trying to represent pre-clipper rigging as was built in 1830s; clippers did not evolve to the advanced point they came to in the 1850-later.
Today added the foresail yard although not with the rigging on it yet. Still working on standing rigging but thought adding the appropriate spar..
the foretopmast stay being up is cool, as adds to the dimensions.

I spoke too soon in my June 15 comments.
Now its "REALLY" a tall ship.

Your work reminds me of a sail ship I watched my father build when I was about 5 or 6 years old. It was fascinating (even though that one was plastic).

I'm intrigued by your building process. While I have never built a sailing ship model (other than scratch-built ships-in-bottles), I probably would have installed the full masts and then rigging, rather than in sections. I see now that this your method is much better in that you have more room to work, and therefore less chance of breaking the upper masts. Hopefully this makes sense.

Thanks Mike Bob and Greg
It’s changed as a model with some rigging. Bob the rigged takes a lot of planning this way makes sense to me. It would be better to plan ahead for block placement than I do.
