I must be the member that visits the forums at most, but to shy to begin to build several kits that I have waiting.
It wasn´t till our last earthquake that some models built by my father in Pittsburgh. I begun to buy some of them on eBay.
I´m talking about basic kits from Scientific (solid hulls), but belive me, he was an artist. I woud like to share my log of the 1851 America in the near future. But I wanted to share some different first
About 6 years ago I bougt the Royale Caroline Kit and the Giorgio Oscoulaty Anatomy of the Ship Book.
The Kit Fogure head is metal casted and it doesn't look to good for me.
More ove, looking ad the drowings from Giorgio Osculati and some carvings from the Rope.I begun lookig for an upgrade.
Many years ago I've foubd an artist who got amazing results, He made all the carvingsor arnaments in brass, but he didn't sell anything.
Today with the help of a friend of mine we came up to this results (a 3D printed figurehead in resin) that I wanted to share with you.
Please let me know if you like them. I'm looking for a good gold paint to airbruh it.
Thanks a lot!
