Looks great mate, you know if you use enamels and you clean your brushes in white spirit, if you rub the dirty thinners over the plastic sails it makes them look more like canvas, you can see the effect in my royal sovereign build.

You don't say, I ran out of room yrs ago my scratch built ships the smallest was 52 inches and of course the 1/8 cars are huge. Get used to it mate models take up room.
