3 1/2 year build of Model Shipway's Charles W. Morgan. Aside from the keel and bulkheads, a few laser cut pieces for crosstrees and rails, and some cast metal bits, this is largely "here's some wood, make it look like this" kind of kit.

My first fully rigged ship model, so a more than a bit of a challenge. I'm pleased with how it all worked out, although as my skills improved I would have done some things differently and better than I did when starting.

Amazing build. Wish mine locked like yours. Like you said "My first fully rigged ship model, so a more than a bit of a challenge. I'm pleased with how it all worked out, although as my skills improved I would have done some things differently" I'm still feel lost at times.

    • This "pourable" resin (not an epoxy) is available from Woodland Scenics and I wanted to try it for this diorama. It makes for quite convincing water. The company makes a range of materials that are primarily targeted at model train hobbyists. I've learned a lot about creating dioramas from train buddies in my clubs. This resin worked well but only for 'flat" scenarios. I've recently been experimenting with creating large, undulating ocean surfaces which require different materials and painting techniques to be convincing.
    • I'm intrigued by the bottle of "realistic water"!
    • Good morning,
       
      would it be possible to send me some additional photos? I would like to build my own ship and your is so great that I would like to see more details to help me.
       
      Best regards,
      Francois
    • Good evening. Do you have the plans of this wonderful ship?
    • Oh haha, misread it 😂, sure she does need a nice one, and I can make that soon.
