Green Eyebrows - Admiral Zheng He - 1433

I have finished my third sailing vessel, Admiral Zheng He's "GREEN EYEBROWS".
The build took two weeks. The hull took one week and the sails took another week.
It is a model of a 30m general purpose ship which sailed with sixty vessels on the seventh world voyage of Admiral Zheng He and returned to China after a three year voyage in 1433. Zheng and his fleet got as far as Mecca and Mogadishu during the 7th voyage.
The kit cam from in China and cost about $25.
