Finally completed after several years. Started with the standard kit but bashed significantly, especially after discovering MSW.
Made and served all the rope using Syren's rope rocket and serving machine, made most of the blocks and many of the deck fittings from old boxwood rulers, and turned all the masts and yards from castello.
I tried the cased model in several locations around the house, eventually going for a minimalist look using a simple table made from a single sheet of bent glass.
I realize that you built the model a long time ago and your son now has it. That's a very special gift for your son and your information has been helpful. I was just wondering if you have posted any other models on the forum and if you are currently building a model?
Thanks very much, Jean-Pierre. Your Pen Duick will be a treasure for your son. My son will inherit my models some day and I think they will mean a lot to him as a valued heirloom from his father.
Do you have any other build logs on this forum? Are you building anything now?
