Although I winced a bit when that drill bit came boring down on the lady. :o

Do not be discouraged. Before that, I made her anesthesia and she felt nothing. She was not hurt.

Beautifully done!

 

Your solution to the difficulty of carving thin pieces is one way of getting around it. I white glue thin pieces on to a backing board to carve them, then dissolve the glue with isopropanol when finished. Then, if the back of the carving needs work, I use fine files or sanding sticks to lessen the chance of breaking a piece off. As another person mentioned, boxwood is a better choice of wood.

Hello I've been here for a long time did not appear. I decided to show you one of my work. This figure of an angel on the French Le Ambitieux. I love the model of this ship, which makes an Italian master. It was in his review and saw this figure of the angel. It wanted to try to do it yourself. And that's what happened. I did it for fun, it's not an order.

Hi Alexander

Just found your thread.WOW!!!!!!! absolutely fantastic quality work. You should write a book on how you do this!!! Words fail me...simply stunning work.congratulations on some fine carving.

Regards....mick

 

Hi Mick. Thank you for rating. 
Nothing secret I do not, all phases of work are the same as I have shown in previous studies. 
I find it hard to write anything that I would like to mention. 
Decided to give a link to your blog, where there is more information and photos on this work. There's a lot of pictures and explanations. Of course, all in Russian, so not everything will be clear, but you can try to do the translation. 
If I broke the rules of the forum, I beg forgiveness for it and then let the moderators to remove these links. 
 
Here how was working on this figure: 
 
and here the description of the competition and continued in St. Petersburg: 
 
At this year's competition came carver Ivan Trtan. I am very glad I was able to see his work and meet him. He is a very good master. 
 
If you do not know who I'm talking about, here's his website where you can see his work:

Incredibly beautiful. I hope some day I can achieve something like this. I probably should start practicing now and continue at least 10 years....

Thank you, Remco. 
Such an evaluation of such a master is expensive. I am sure that you thread much better. In this there are no secrets,  need a little patience. That's all. I have been carving recently. About six months. All my work I show here. Gradually learning new things. This is very interesting! 
By the way, I and take you, too, am a student, thank you for your work.

Welcome VaskoVolf 
I did not understand a bit of your request. You mean work on a thread? Or building my model ship? If the question of the carving, then I'm doing this recently. And all my work I show here. If there are more, then be sure to show you. I try to take pictures during the work, myself so interesting. And I'm showing. 
If you mean the construction of the model, I believe that in my work  is nothing new. I bought a set of Chinese HMS Druid. Now I try to make this a normal Admiralty model,  and learn naval engineer. I have exhibited their work at the Russian site, here did not spread, because here are many such works. Hard for me to write in English, and technical issues to me hard to understand English. If you want, I can show a link to my topic with the construction.
