Beautiful work as per your normal craftsmanship!
I just noticed as going through your log again, that you didn't 'fill' the treenails, you just made a hole. That's a very good idea......no-one who was only looking at this great model would see them anyway. It looks so neat.
Deck superstructures mounted,
Completion of the model.
Conclusion: a nice model, for my taste it could have been a bit bigger.
Otherwise I think this kit overpriced.
The planking Rose-Wood (German Palisander-Holz) was me too dark for me,
so I used Elsbeere-Wood.
The carving would certainly be even more beautiful in boxwood and would
be more effective.
But overall I am santisfied with the result.
On the one hand, best craftsmanship. On the other hand, it is amazing to finish this ship in less than three months. You have my full appreciation. I'm looking forward to seeing your original artwork.
