Amazing diorama, wonderful work! How did you make all these crew members?



I carved and positioned all the figures in different poses. Thank you. Cheers! John.

This is an amazing piece of art. I've been researching this ship for quite some time now, for a project I'm about to start. put many hours in and have collected a bunch of rare out of print books, diagrams, different version of model instructions. I came across a post you made, regarding rigging order, it looked to be the most definitive set of instructions I could find out there; it's a few years old now and most of the image links are gone. Is there a more up to date version anywhere? you talked about adding more details to it. (also if anyone is looking at doing this build, I have, The Anatomy of Nelson's Ships by C. Nepean Longridge, HMS Victory Classic Ships NO1 Noel C. L. Hackney, The Hundred Gunship Victory The Anatomy by John Mckay - happy to share images from them)
