Just remember that this is a hobby the we do because WE enjoy it. To "L" with what anyone else says. IF you are happy with the results it was a successful build regardless what others think. If they like your work it is a bonus...

Thanks Dane Bramage and Webfactory. Thow it will still take some time to add the toe ropes, I finde myself wondering whitch one of my works in progress to rieturn to next---that 2nd. Royal Louis , the 4-masted spanish galleon , or the saint louis. I'm leaning twards the royal louis because I can switch the models in the display case. But I don't have a spanish galleon in my collection. Whot to due--whot to due.
