I was going to post this elsewhere, but I thought Graham would be keeping an eye out for it here, so here goes,



As you can see it is a cross section kit of the Bon Homme Richard, it has lots of scope for adding extra's and detailing.

these are the upgrade rails you can choose from, they are extra but worth it.

Hi John,

Just joining your log which I very much like.
I am currently also building the 1/30 Royal Caroline from ZHL in the boxwood version which I bought from Max directly, although slightly lagging behind compared to your build. It is indeed an exceptional model kit and I enjoy it every moment, all the small details is what make this a beautiful model.
I am building the vessel according the drawings which come from the book of "Anatomy of the Ship" this means I made some deviations to the standard kit, and am also adding the captains cabin at the stern of the vessel. I started the build in June and am currently tree nailing the hull with about 4500 wooden nails (beech wood cocktail sticks) which will take me a few weeks.

Would be very interesting to see your vessel sailing in the future, are you also fitting RC controlled winches etc? The large scale would offer this opportunity.

If there is any interest and I don't mess up your log I can post some pictures as well.

Regards, Maarten
