    I don,t like the vertical lines in the hull.But that is how it was designed .It is a Cannon model.The next model after this one will be the Galleon SanSalvador model 3 times larger.That one will be on the mantle.That should make it around 1/33.

    Actually, some people make the hulls that way, they cut out the strips and reassemble the hull that way. Doing so with thin paper would work, but the model looks fine. :)

    Man, that is a big model riverboat.

    Glad to hear that you are getting a resupply on the blades, I generally hit Michaels or Dick Blicks and snag a 100 count box when my supply gets low. Dick Blicks price is $27.19 as is Michaels, the two Office Supply places, Depot and Max goes the whole retail pop of $33.
