G'day Janos
Did you say nearly finished? I thought it was done ages ago.
No words that can I say, can express my views on how incredible your amazing artmanships are!
For those who are looking for the added pieces, I found them.

Lovely to see the progress you have made on your magnificent model Janos. Your craftsmanship is at a very high level indeed!

We just moved 200 km from our previous home and the shop will not be active until the end of summer.

Take care,
Bill

Absolutely stunning work Janos.Its starting to spur me on to carry on with my Sovereign,but I just feel I haven't enough time at the minute to get carried away in the whirlwind of carving.Time just evaporated whilst I was working on her.
Kind Regards
Nigel.

Still alive... ;)
I was supposed to give some pictures about the guns for SoS but I hit a snag... After casting and clearing up I applied the primer and then unfortunately painted the barrels with Tamiya Bronze colour. Well, to say the least it did not come out well so out came the paint stripper and the barrels went back to their state after the cast. The biggest problem was that I used the glossy kind of the pait and that I brushed it. First it looked well but then it looked ugly. So a second run is under way. I ordered the flat bronze paint and I am eagerly waiting for it.

Hello Janos

Just catching up on your great build. I am at Awh with your great carvings and along with so very many, you are surely turning your Sovereign of The Sea into a great museum piece. Sure wish that I possessed just a bit of your great carving skills. Later on, in the early winter, I do intend to try to carve or should I say try to carve a figurehead for my Oliver Cromwell, ENJOY.

Regards Lawrence

Excellent work and nice carving. What is the scale you are working and what is the size of the figurehead Horse and Knight?
