@Spanjaard Thanks. My first attempt at any scale. Should probably have picked something in a larger scale

If you can rig in this scale, anything bigger will be a walk in the park. Perhaps a bit thinner rigging in this scale the next time? Like Spanjaard said, respect.
I like the paint job.

Hello Dave,
So 144th next time ?

@Martin Yes, I'll use something thinner next time (that's EZ Line fishing line on this one). @Olly Ha! I'll crack the jokes. 🙂

as Martin said, any scale will be walk in the park now (1/144 may be a challenge😉 )

@Erik @Alec. Thanks guys. Good to know people think it looks fine. I was worried the rigging would be seen as too out of scale.

Looks about right scale wise. The options are rather limited by what is available.

@Peter Thanks. @Adam I wish it was. Installing that fishing line would have been a darn sight easier. 🙂
