There is no question that these are outstanding results. On the one hand, I feel that actually making the ornaments, oneself, is enormously rewarding, and worth the time and challenge. There is something to be said for imbuing the model with your own hand and style. On the other hand, it is extremely time consuming, without even taking into consideration the care and time that faithfully executing the shipwrightery of the project. When one considers the profusion of ornament on a ship like the St. Philippe, this becomes an extremely valuable service, indeed. Great work!
