CSS Alabama

Revell# 05604 Confederate warship C.S.S. ALABAMA 1/96 scale
A ship of this size is a massive undertaking. 32″ long, 18″ tall, thousands of parts, and many feet of rigging.
This was actually my first tall ship, and it seems to have turned out fairly well. It took over a year to build, and now occupies a special place in the library.dsc002011Bottom is Copper (for anti-fouling), sails are moulded plastic, rigging is cross-stitch thread, kit includes steam engine fitting, stand and sailers as well.
