Beautiful work... thanks for sharing. Those like me who don't quite have the skills you have, can only share in the joy of seeing a ship built by a skilled builder.
Hello Ken....je ne vois pas vos photos ?Hi. Again thanks to all who gave their likes to my build. It’s still progressing well, here’s the result of the next session. You will know that I had built the staircases earlier, now I have glued them into place and built up their rails as well as the rails on the upper decks. I have also started to make up the brass rails around the funnel deck, you can just about see part of them in the pics, again I’m pleased with the result.
I’m also still making up the smaller parts which add to its character. I have made up pike racks before but never a riffle rack so this is a first for me and I think a nice touch that you wouldn’t expect.
