Great job, He is really looking the business. Good luck with the rigging mate.

Russell,
Great work! Looks awesome. Once you're rigged, you're done!

Hi Russell,

It's been great watching you build this. It's been a long but awesome build! You're close and I can't wait to see it completed! Good luck on the rigging!

Cheers

Good luck with that mate, can look just as effective as full rig, which can look a bit overcrowded in scale.

Cheers

Hi Russ!

Definitely glad to see that your coating was successful! Your Prinz is looking outstanding, hands down!! And (slowly) progressing with my Hood, I see all the troubles you have had with your Prinz - it must be some general negligence on Trumpi's part - you know what I mean...

My glacier seems to be speeding up, it evaded me last time I was trying to catch it - but I don' t give up...

Cheers Mate,
Jan
