Doing the copper plates on the hull. very time consuming and intense.. but worth it when done. I built a jig to put the nails in and a ponce wheel to do it. then i cut the strip into 4 plate segments and attached to the hull

I haven’t posted in a while have been busy with the Mystic Seaport Ship Modelers setting up our display and workshop in the Gardner boat shop. I had Bounty’s figure done in 3D printed by a company called Aero Systems Design. It took about 3 months for them to do it as they just got the software to do the 3D model. I sent them the figure head from the plans with dimensions and the made the figure head. Here are some pics. They did an awsome job….
