With the Mary Rose completed now,it's time for the Amati Nina build to get back on track. It's slow going since there is a lack of building space due to Pickels taking up room on the desk where I work.

La Couronne has all of her masts topped out and is now ready for the yards to install. I'm thinking that she will be ready for her maiden voyage this summer. We shall see.

Work on Soleil Royal' interior cabins. Pictured are the Great Cabin (lower) and the Admiral'ss Cabin (upper). Captain's Cabin has yet to be built. All the cabins have or ill have flickering LED lights to simulate actual lantern lighting and will be visible through the stern lights when fully enclosed.

Hi everyone.  

 

Here are two of the latest photos of Shadow's (a mega-yacht) progress.  As you can see, I've started to fit-out the accommodation on her Main Deck.  

 

Lots of fun to go, folks!

 

Cheers

Hi folks

 

had so little time the past weeks to build up my Fregatte Berlin. But the last week I finished the hull and installed the guns. Next will be to color the decorations and fix them. After this I will start to create the masts. They are not rods but square-shaped timber and I have to shape them. Not sure if I like this, we will see.

 

Cheerio

Greetings,

 

Spent the winter building Amati's Coca merchantman, then took a break and machined the tiny steam launch engine which, to my amazement, taking into account

my minimal machining skills, works! Now, back to planking....

Hello. Just finished with tree nailing and the transom on my Sherbourne. Sitting and planing next step that will be the planking of the hull. I don't know if I dare to try clinker planking.

Had a great time at the IPMS Seattle Show yesterday. The Mary Rose cmae threw the 340 mile drive up to Seattle and back without any damage or lose lines,or any hands at the show. Came back with a couple of things to go with the Mary Rose when it goes into a case. 1st Place Ribbon for Non-Powered Ships All Scales,and Best Of Show Ship Award. Yes this was an IPMS Show and Pickels and I beat out all the sub's,battleships,freighters,destoyers and a great scratch built North Sea Anchor Tender in 1/100 scale. It was a great show with over 1,000 models entered. And they had record attendance yesterday. Check out their web site at IPMS Seattle. I think it will take a couple days or more before they have photos of the show.

 

Here's the Mary Rose safe at home with what I brought back to share with my shipyard help-Pickels.

Thanks to Wood from Jason at Crown Timberyard,Deadeyes,miniature rope From Chuck at Syren that made my build even better.
