    Wow !!!

    Really incredible !!! Congratulations !!!

    When I look that rigging I get a headache. I think ships are not for me but your work is impressive.

    Thanks for the flowers ;)

    I took my time with the build - did a couple of other things in between, so I can't tell you how many hours I spent on it. Having said that, it took me about a year and a half.

    Incidentally - the rigging was probably the easiest part of the whole thing. I'll be happy to share my rigging method if there's any interest.

    Cheers,

    Oliver,

    How would you rate the model in terms of build difficulty? I want to build an early warship but didn't know whether to go with HMV Verlag, Digita Navy, ProModel or others. Difficulty is my main concern, but I also want a model that will look good when built.

    Oliver, your model is simply amazing! The quality of your workmanship is really something to aspire to.

    PS How much did the acrylic box set you back? Last time I checked on prices for one, I about fell off my chair.

    @Chris - OK, I'll do a little write-up and post it in the coming days.

    @Chris Doyle - the box, including shipping, was about a $100. Quite a bit of dough for a plastic box, but considering the time and effort I put into this, and that I want to keep the model around for a while, it didn't seem so bad. I got it from this place: http://store.casesforcollectibles.com/index.html My experience with them was good. The case arrived quickly, was exactly what I ordered and was packaged quite safely.

    Cheers,

    Oliver
