Good day,

I have been building my Sovereign of the Seas kit for some years now and will start with a few comments about it. I basically took the bones of the kit and built the framework of the ship and then duplicated all the bulkheads and deck parts I had used and put the kit back together and sold it. From there, I scratch built the ship to the point it is at now. I enclose a photo of the stern as it sits now. The ornamentation that was included with the kit was not to my liking and with significant research, I wanted to duplicate contemporary presentations of the ship in my model.

I will add some of the research I did to arrive at my decision to carve all the ornamentation as this log builds.

More to follow.............
