Nice work William, very impressive. Short blade or a snap off blade ... straight or curved?

this is a stanley blade, i find it easier to sculptor than a blade fixed in a pencil thingy..

Very well done, William, and I love your choice of weapons.  Rules? What rules.

Beautifully done, William. It's certainly easier to do this on a flat surface vs. on the model. Are you going to add the balustrades? That should be challenging.

Wonderful work William. Which wood did you use? And how did you make that big carving in the upmost center of the Victory stern? I would also like to see the tutorial of your work.

All my carvings are made of boxwood

 

Ok lads n lasses, the stern band. I thought a lot about how to do this, it seemed to me to be very tricky to get right with its symmetrical and fragile shape but when I came up with this idea of how to make it it turned out to be the easiest piece i`ve carved.

 

The band passes under the stern emblem in the centre, this allowed me to make it in two pieces

I used a dremel in the spindle attachment to get the basic shape

to get the gully shape i put a brass rod into some ply and left it sticking up 2mm,, then with rounded type cutter in the dremel I ran my piece down the edge of the brass rod,, (the ply with the brass rod was fixed to my dremel drill attachment)

when happy with the gully I simply marked out the teethy cut outs, started at the marked area in the pic , to emulate the one on the real Vic. Then with my trusty dremel again in the spindle attachment I simply cut out the teethy shapes

this is the marked point where i started the teethy things. so when you look at the finished band it looks perfectly symmetrical, and its not bad, but any discrepancy would be at the centre hidden behind the main emblem

as for the balustrades Greg i have dabbled with them, the problem is that they are not round and they are all cut at different angles. so heres a couple of pics of the different shapes, one is of the centre balustrade next to an ordinary pin for scale the other is of the centre balustrade and the other is the extreme right one
