Thanks GreggCA.
Now i am working on the mast and rigging.
It is dificult,because I don´t want to use cut-out rig design.
I prefer to do mine
that's why I will go slower
Regards

[QUOTE=Llaut Mallorquin;604636]Hi RickPink 65

Yes, it's a good kit but it has some flaw.

I can see you are having problems which is natural with such a complex kit. I agree, instructions are basic. I think that perhaps Schreiber reasoned that this model is for expert builders. As a matter of fact, the cover states " more difficult". However, this is no excuse for not providing step by step instruction drawings. Good luck!!

Great Project.
It is interesting to watch this giant with paddle wheels and one propeller.

As well as six masts with sails.
I wouldn't be surprised if there also were some very long oars . . .

Hello
Thanks for the interest and the answers, Michael Mash;Helmut Z and frigate 264 (hola amigo, ¿qué tal todo por esos lejanos mares?).
Lighter, I'll look in the cellars, because maybe there are 1000 oars hidden yet
I think about the sails, I'm not going to do it.
I have my own theory and that is that when they put sails in a model ship, they should get swollen by the wind
In addition, they require a sea and above all crew
So I will put the masts and the yards, in winter, without sails
Regards

I have read that they were not often used since they tended to catch fire from the sparks from the five funnels. I do not recall seeing a photograph flying sails. I have seen lots of artwork and illustrations with sails.
