    They certainly look the very ticket Andy. All fighting ship shape and Bristol fashion.

    You can't go far wrong following Julián Andy. He is our foremost shipbuilder.

    We also have Diamondback who is probably the most informed about ship specifications, and Dave Manley who understands all about ship building, plus several shipmates such as Dobbs, and Texas who actually sail ships. All in all we have a vast mine of information here at our fingertips. If I have ommitted any of our specialists I'm sure that they will make themselves known to you in due course. I actually know a bit about Black Powder and firing cannon and muskets.

    As a self-critic, I must say that even though I am a good painter, there are many other modelers who do a very good work and better than mine. Me, in trying to get a model that fits time and price for my clients, I have to simplify the rigging, trying as much as possible to represent as faithfully as possible to these boats but I must point out other modelers who make a rig really good.
    Even so, I appreciate your words and it is a pleasure and pride to serve as a reference.
