too easy my friend it`s like learning to drive a buss with a ferrari!

Somers needs a bit of an overhaul (foretopmast sprung and the fore tops`l yard shot trhough in the slings during a brief but violent encounter with one of my helis in the workshop!), but if you like i can box it and send it to you, i`d love to see her alongside the Santisima, being at the same scale !

no no, she is built to the same scale.. 1:50 about, but she`s much much smaller, about 1/2 the length and 1/2 the breadth, and a 1/7 the displacement

wow looks great...i would call it "le superbe!"....so much attention to detail.....me...i'm all built out...have run out of the passion ........you've got to get a better camera though....was thinking of sending you one which i'm not using, but it probably would cost more to send it than to buy one .....but if you need, let me know .....cheers....vic
