Thanks Beachead. It really hasn't been all that much work up until half way through the hull planking. I have to progress more carefully now with the planking. But, it's coming along.

While waiting on paint and glue to dry, I went ahead and started to work on the sail. It's one large square sail with a bonnet laced below, effectively creating on larger sail.

I started painting the sail using the mixture described in the instructions. The color comes out quite well, like weathered cotton cloth. This, like other paint, was thinned down, so it wouldn't hide the printed (laser-etched?) lines in the cloth.

The sail also has a shield painted on it and a pattern on the sides of the sail. The instructions weren't quite as clear on the mixture for the red coloring. I think it was trying to say to mix in the sail color mixture with the red. I did that and added a touch of black paint.

Enjoyed the construction break doing the painting. Took me a couple days to finish it up.

This kit gets consistently good reviews by the builders.
Nice work. The hull, with all the fine details looks good.

That sail painting looks very realistic, along with the rest of the build!

Thanks for the nice comments eatcrow2 and Mike.

I think in some ways it's going to get a little more complicated with all the exposed framing to be added shortly. Should be interesting though.

I managed to add the ribs. There is more framing to go on the model. Looks a bit complicated, but it's probably not as difficult as it looks.

I did have some difficulty keeping track of all the small rib parts. They're all different, and are shaped to fit the clinker-style hull planking. Unfortunately, with things this precisely engineered, the modeler has to build it just as precisely or things don't line up exactly.

My hull planking is just a tad low, by abput 2 millimeters or so, but I don't think this will be a big problem in the end. It's just that if you look really closely, you can see this as yet another imperfection in the build.

On the shelf, it should look pretty good.

The colour is wonderfully realistic- little variations in the shade of the wood for differernt planks.
