How much more of the build is left to do? When did this build start as I have not seen any adverts for this build and nothing seems to come up for Del Prado when I google, only ebay!!!!

Hi trotter59 , I am on issue 98 of 100 at the moment. (up to date photos to post later). At the moment i am completing the rigging and have to fit the sails to the yards. also all the fine detail items have to be completed. I expect to have it completed in about 2 weeks. This partwork came out about 1998 i think.

The rigging is slow but steady. Not going as quick as i thought but i am really enjoying seeing it coming together.

Hi nice to see the build. Not sure if this is the right place as new member but have just got all copies of the bounty build magazine but missing the first 13 issue parts i.e. the frames and keel if anyone has photos/copies that might help would be most welcome. Currently thinking of drawing them of a Billing plan and changing scale

Not a ship builder myself I am a little confused.I have Del Prado build the Bounty that I want to sell. Has been started up to structure no:22, even though I have parts 17-100 unopened except for No:54&63. Book No15 is missing and some of the frame is broken,but I still have the pieces that can be glued. Not sure about No22 I may only have part of it. Contact me if interested.
