Restoration of kit model Slaver Dos Amigos

Len used a set of Marine Model Co. plans to restore the model.  It was found at a garage sale and in rough condition. All the the deck fittings were redone, such as the hatches,fife rails, pump, tiller, catheads, etc., as well as all the timberheads inside the bulwalks. The head rails and decoration were added along with the boat davits and boat at the stern. Most of the yards were replaced as well as all the rigging, blocks, deadeyes, pin rails, etc. The hull was repainted and remounted on pedestals.
