    Hi, Steve!
    I missed the first part of this thread somehow, but I'm glad I saw your recent post and found this great build. :D
    She has some interesting lines, particularly the way the forecastle has that fairing slanted inboard rather than the usual flare we see normally.
    Your ladders came out great!
    The designer seems to have done a nice job with the underwater hull plating, but you really made it work; it looks great!
    There is a charm about this era of mixed steam and sail, I have to admit.
    Great photos!!
    Thanks for the updates.

    Hi, Steve,

    You still have no Avatar, therefore, I have done for you this.
    You need him no more work on, that is done already suitably
    Greeting

    Scorpio, your avatars are great!! I saw all the fancy avatars popping up all over the place and I started to turn a little :mrgreen: with envy!
    Thanks for keeping things interesting and for motivating me to change mine :)

    all the best!

    @ Scorpio,

    First of all, thanks for making the cool avatar ! :D I made the railings from brass wire. The steps themselves are lead castings which I ordered here:

    Thanks for the kind words, Scorpio. It means a lot to hear something like that that from an Expert. :)

    I am proceeding somewhat slowly on this kit. My other hobby is painting zinnfiguren. I have some Prince August and Nurnburger Meisterzinn molds, and enjoy casting these troops in my garage and then painting them (example below). So at the moment, I am alternating between land and sea. :wink:
