So here's the second past of the build - I'm not going to over narrate the build as it follows the instructions..

My Dad built them for real at Fleming and Fergusson's shipyard on the River Cart, which feeds into the Clyde . He did his engineering apprenticeship there .

 

I've often wondered what it would be like to build a ship kit again . My main issue is where to put it when finished!

This one doesn't take up too much room - fortunately.

Looks really good. I like the rigging on the mast.   The finished model is well detailed. Do you think the kit detail is better on the newer but smaller scale kit than the older 1:72 scale one?
