  1. Lovely work Ulises! I'm very proud of you, as I'm sure so are all the forum members of your most excellent build of the Royal Louis! Your attention to detail is excellent! You inspired me so much, I had to order a Royal Louis from eBay this past week, waiting patiently now for her arrival.. Sargon

  4. Hello Everyone! Been ill a few days, but wanted to update on the progress... I must admit, my first post did have tons of gaps, nailheads everywhere , etc But thank GOD, wood is very forgiving... I've sanded the model quite a bit now, and its still a work in progress, but I feel like the Black Prince, Machiavelli once said... "The ends justify the means".. I feel with hard work, and correcting the mistakes, I can get this model to look respectable, and even beautiful... with your advice, and help as well.. which is greatly appreciated... a SMALL update: I hope everyone is well... Your friend Sargon
  5. WOW! Now THAT IS BEAUTIFUL!!! Thank you my friend for sharing this beautiful delight!! SARGON
  6. The Honor is MINE Old Collingwood I thank you very much! I started following your Greyhound. She sure is a fine ship, if I may be so bold. There's something about the earlier period of the 18th century that is so attractive in regards to these lovely vessels... Wouldn't you say? SARGON

    Personally, it looks great if you can scratch build the moulding, and can compensate for the inaccuracies and lack of instruction. Maybe try to get a better newer version on, ModelSpace, or on ebay. Sargon
