Take a look at the pictures Ron Neilson submitted of his Syren, US Brig 1803 by Model Shipways - great job Ron! If you have questions about Ron's work, you can contact him via email and / or you should look to the Model Ship World Forum as there is a large repository of information on building this model kit!
Ron's comments: I enjoyed building your Syren immensely and thank you for offering this kit with superior build instructions and mostly very good contents out-of-the-box. I've also told Chuck Passaro how much I appreciated his superb work. I'm hoping to purchase your Model Shipways Confederacy next: a stunning model that will bring Model Shipways "game" up to the level - or beyond - your European competitors!
