Hi Michale, thanks for the supportive comments. It certainly makes building the model more enjoyable!

Hi Bob, I'll leave you and Ab to the crosstrees question. As for this model, I'm guessing that the ones in the kit may not be correct for the ship type or era. But, that's okay. I'm satisfied building the kit mostly "as is" but learning what was correct and not correct as I go.

With wooden ship models, I can't leave kits alone and am always having to "improve" on them. I haven't reached that state with paper models, and perhaps that's one reason I consider them so fun to build – I don't have strong desires to "accurize" them, at least not yet. That will probably change in time. Then, I might be more apt to try some paper model scratch building.
