    Christoph,

    Absolutely magnificent work! How did you make the cannons (all 104 of them)?

    I just finished looking at the pictures of your model and all I can say is WOW!!!

    Are you sure that it's made from paper? (Just kidding). If only the small scale wooden ships I make looked as good.

    Hello friends,

    If I get the consent of administrator then, I put more pictures of Victory. I don't want to incriminate the server unnecessarily.
    Recruits here for my club in the forum I find tastelessly.
    Therefore, I don't do that.

    With the best greetings

    Beautiful work Christoph. The kit is just a suggested guide, your build shows the master at his trade...,

    Best regards, Gil

    Hi, Christoph! :smile:
    I have been following this build with much pleasure, and this latest installment is more amazing the last! I know what a difficult process putting on the standing rigging is, and prone to many potential problems, but your efforts are spectacular. I was just curious whether you are using the kit supplied dead eyes and blocks, of which there are so many parts.

    Thanks for posting your updated photos, they are brilliant and inspiring!

    Cheers!

    Jim
