I had a pleasure to see Tiziano's model in person in Rochefort, it is truly amazing! Bravo!

Was coming back to it over and over, there is something magnificent about it. It is made out of pear that Tiziano milled himself, and have a beautiful finish that is very unique. Very precise, there are no gaps and no cracks, even though the model is 17 years old...

Spoilers: the real model is ahead of the build log by a number of years. Smart move! :) 


Tiziano was very kind to share his techniques. As usual, the main one is "go slow, do not rush" ;) 



Hi Mike, and thanks for the words you wrote, I'm glad that a young person like you is interested in modeling arsenal, this bodes well for the future

More of your excellent joinery; a pity so much of it will be unseen when you complete her.
