This is absolutely incredible - the craftsmanship and attention to detail which has gone into this is astounding, seriously.

Hats off to you, I'm properly impressed - if I can make something half as good as this, I'll be pleased with myself
thank you audigex



Finally the standing rigging is finished.

Now ,i have to do a little bit of running rigging. (for keeping the yards level(horizontal))(How I don't know, must search the other topics again for possible solutions)
