    Today I have seen the fragility of my 3d ships first hand

    Was moving a tray of ships to add the inserts into the base and managed to slip and…. You guessed it dropped the tray

    Spanish ship Fenix 2 masts shot away
    HMS Orion totally dismasted and lost bowsprit
    HMS Leviathan lost rear mast and broken bowsprit
    HMS Indefatigable, snapped bowsprit and broken rear mast
    HMS Captain totally dismasted and lost bowsprit.

    Trying to see if I can salvage the masts and ratlines, at least the hulls survived with all lanterns intact

    Busy wiping the tears away at present and getting out the superglue

    I have a load of Henry's spares from the kickstarter if they are of any use to you Chris. I am using Ares masts for all my ships.

    The Business of the commander-in-chief is first to bring an enemy fleet to battle on the most advantageous terms to himself, (I mean that of laying his ships close on board the enemy, as expeditiously as possible); and secondly to continue them there until the business is decided.

    Thank you Rob, I may have to take you up on that.
    I am slowly trying to repair, but I will have to replace a few masts and a bowsprit.
    My own silly fault letting the tray slip, you can imagine how blue the air was, especially as I can swear in, Cypriot, German and Italian

    I will pack them up and get them in the post ASAP. No car tomorrow though as it is being taken in for its MoT.

    If you want some more of the fragile printed masts I could probably print some for you. You’d have to let me know which though.
