Process of making anchors for the carrack: Main body cut out from 3-4mm Aluminum plate, Blades cut out from 1mm Al plate. Glued with hi-speed 2 component epoxy glue.
Will be painted black with some rust traces and weathering, Perpendicular beams would be added after painting/ weathering is done. .IMG_20201125_231831.jpgIMG_20201125_232040.jpgIMG_20201125_233403.jpgIMG_20201125_233527.jpgIMG_20201125_234234.jpgIMG_20201125_235208.jpgIMG_20201125_235312.jpg

Thank you very much Uwe. I am glad you liked it .
And you are right. This model is unique, there is not a single one in the world done like this one since it is the combination of some very old restoration plans and my own personal research and modifications to make it even more realistic and accurate.

It is there on page #9 of the showcase

Thank you very much Donnie. You did a great job reducing color intensity on photos which my camera automatically record - in my opinion exaggerated, and I do not have always time to manually reduce colors to normal

You are welcome. I was concerned that you might not like the reduced Saturation. I am happy that you are satisfied. I do a lot of editing to photos to try to make them good for everyone.
