Hello again!
This is the extremely beautiful French ship Le Soleil Royal.
The kit is 1/100 scale Heller.
It took me about 3500 hours to work on it.
The hull is plastic with a lot of processing, I used 0.5mm pear for the decks.
Pear is much better than maple on this scale.
This time the sells is not from textile - I used another technology for then
;)

The photos are divided into two albums - body construction and rigging.
The ship also have lighting
:)

I hope you like it
:)

Without question, this is one of the very best executions of this kit that I have ever seen. Your work is right there at the top with the likes of Richard Romaniak, who was one of the very first builders to do an extensive detailing of the Heller kit. BRAVO, my friend!

There are so many things that I like about this, but your oak-painted sides are particularly good.
