Hey Kraut,how you doing out there in Colorado? Has the snow melted yet? My ship is coming along and the props fit perfectly. This will be quite the show boat when I get it in the water. You get any water in your pond yet? Thought you might have been doing a little sailing in your "spare" time. Ha! How are the horses doing and give Dumpster a pat on the head for me. Pete

The CS now has some decking on and the gunwales have been covered. The brass sidings on the deck cabins get painted first and then the top layer of paint is sanded off and that leaves the paint in the etched out spaces. Pretty neat but not very prototypical. Next comes the decking on the main deck and the waterways around the deck edges. The top boards on the sheer and then the belaying rails will follow. Once all the deck work gets finished I can start the masts and the rigging. I love doing the rigging because the model starts looking more and more like the real thing with every line you put on it.

Ahoy ya swabbie:
You may NOT criticize my rigging. I am the master of clipper ship rigging. I have a voodoo doll with your name on it. Get smart and I'll start sticking pins in it . I got the doll from some friends in Haiti so I know it's a good one. Meantime back to the clipper ship since I don't have anything else to do. Captain Pirate Pete

WOW! Right after I made the voodoo comment yesterday my AC went out. last night was the most miserable night of my life without the cool air. Got it fixed this morning and found a burned wire that was the cause. I don't know how you did that Old Bum Whiskers but I burned the voodoo doll and promise never to say anything bad about you again. SHEESE! Some guys got no sense of humor. Ha! Pete

Here are a few updated pictures. The life boats are a bugger to build and didn't come out so well. Anyway here are a few progress pictures and now I have to watch "The Dome". Pete

Thanks Mike. I got the hull finished and the masts but had to leave it there for now. That's one boat that has a ways to go to get it finished. Actually I had forgotten about it till you brought it up.
I do like to rig these sailing ships and this one has all the rigging but the sail lines. There are no sails on this model so some of the lines are omitted. However I have made it to run on a couple small motors so I have to allow access to the inside hull for battery changes. I'll have to move some of the rigging around to let that happen. Hope I can get back to it soon. Pete
