Photo Information for FA 1816


Recommended Comments

First, apologies for the dusty photos.  The model was completed in 2009 and had been included as a build log in MSW 1.0.  I should have dusted it off better before taking the photos for this gallery.


This is the Lauck Street Shipyards Fair American.  There is no paint anywhere on the model.  It is made from cherry, boxwood, ebony, walnut, swiss pear, holly, and rosewood and finished only with wipe-on poly along with unpainted brass and metal fittings.  I wanted to challenge myself at the time to "paint with wood."  The wood mostly came with the kit, but it and the supplemental wood I used (like ebony for the wale and rosewood in the cabin pattern all came from Jeff at Hobbymill.  The hand sanding on this model probably had some part to play in the shoulder surgery that sidelined me for a long while:-)

Hello Glenn,

Never mind the dusty pictures.

She is just marvelous with great detail.
