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.
Hi Ron, thanks for the comments. Actually the base was a very quick cut up made from foamcore and modpodge. I painted the surface with some dark blue / green acrylic paint. Then stippled on several layers of Gloss ModPodge. Added a bit of white and stippled in the foam. Just wante a base for doing some quick photos. IT will get a more permanent home with a dock etc. eventually.
Ich baue auch gerade ein Modell der "Amerika" und rätsel über die Führung der Schot des Focksegels, das ja ohne Baum gefahren wurde. Auf den meisten Abbildungen ist das Schothorn der Fock durch das Großsegel verdeckt. Hat da jemand einen Tipp für mich?
