That's some impressive work (even with the fuzzy focus :P )

 

I can't wait to see the "Mobbsie Touch" on the stern! :)

Those nettings are wonderful! Are you going to display the hammocks stowed...or at least some of them?

I'm also curious to see what you come up with for the stern.

Beautiful nettings, Mobbsie.  I too am curious... hammocks or no hammocks?

Hi Mobbsie, 

 

Your ship is looking fine!  I've been using the 'like' button more than posting but I am watching! :D

 

:cheers:

Mobbsie, your Aggie is moving right along. She is going to be a powerful warship and it's a good thing in case 'you know who' comes along with intents of war.

Wonderful job on the netting Mobbsie. It looks great.

Give your eyes some rest before you start with the decorations.

Amazing details and paint-work, Mobbsie, that sure is a lot of eye candy  :D  

 

Just a small question, my friend:

 

Could you give some tips on how you approached building the quarter galleries? I still have a long way to go before making them on my Triton, but I am already having some cold sweats trying to figure out how I would approach these complicated structures :wacko:

Hi Guys,

 

Thank you all so very much for looking in and your kind comments and remarks. :)  :)

 

Aldo, I'll do my best mate, I will send you a PM.

 

Sherry / Mark - I don't plan on making any hammocks at the moment, I have no idea as to size although the shape wouldn't be a problem.

 

John, Dan, Augie, Sjors, Andy thanks guys for your good words.

 

Pierre, Jim, Patrick, Anja, thank you very much guys

 

I have to give a big thank you to Grant for sending me the material so that I could make the nettings, I can get something like it but it's the wrong pattern. Be seeing you very soon mate.

 

Patrick - I have Sjors next build at home so the Meercats will be spiking his guns, cant have a wayward sailer on the ocean.

 

OK, The Transom, all that is left to do is the lanterns and two gun port lids, I will post a few pics as she stands now but please be aware that it is still work in progress. The quarter galleries are also finished apart from a paint touch-up.

 

The figure head is dry fitted and I quite like him so wont be changing anything there apart from fitting his spear a little later, it's a very soft metal.

 

I didn't want the stern to look bland or blousy so I would appreciate any and all comments whether they be good or bad.

 

OK, some pictures, some have been taken outside just to try it, ( scary taking the ship down the stairs ).

Wow Mobbsie!

 

I've no idea about accuracy, but I love what you've done with the decorations. The splash of colour really adds life to the model. I'll look forward to a closer personal inspection in a couple of weeks time. :)

Very nice job on the stern and decorations....great choice of colours! B)

 

Although.. I hope that's only a part missing and not an amputation on the figurehead... :unsure:  :P

You, sir, have a flair for color!  Well done.

 

As MSW Commodore, I shall also submit a recommendation that you receive an award for valor on your successful navigation of this behemoth down the stairs and outdoors.  Bravery should be rewarded  :36:
