HMS Aeolus gets masts and sails

More progress on the HMS Aeolus. Masts are 80% painted and glued in place.
Next is finishing the mast details, fighting tops, banding and general cleanup of the sails.
Then 2 days to dry and then clear coating.
That will just leave rigging and basing...

I decided to assemble the ship before clear coat mainly because it made some of the finish work on the masts much easier.  I have decided to put a brush on sealer on the ends on the yard arms before clear coating, with the hopes that it will extend the life of the paint there, since these are the most likely place to grab the ship to move it.
May 5: I believe I have fixed the first pictures link.
