  1. Hello, I have done some work on the Model and here are the snapshots , please let me know what do you think of the build so far thanks
  2. Hello, I resumed working on my prins willem after 2 months , I lost some photos of the last build, will take care from now on thanks
  3. Hi Radek , Excellent work and great shots, I really find what you are doing is amazing , the Guns part is splendid .. will do the same with my current build thank you for sharing regards
  4. Thank you Jan .. do you mean i should keep it that way .. I actually planned to replace it
  5. Hello Radek Really Excellent build , and the grating is Super .. When will you start your next model .. do you have any idea yet
  6. Hello Radek Thank you for your comments, yes you are right about the grating it seams big.. I enjoyed your Mayflower thread very much .. indeed , the build is great and the first impression it looks like pure wood to me and the color, look and feel of real wood grains is impressing.. The Clay deadeye is a smart trick , I love it .. I admit i will keep this log in front of my during the build.. And regarding the Deck color , it is an acrylic yellow paint , and after it dried , I used very light brown + an acrylic matt polish (one drop of brown : 10 drops of polish) and spread it with a sponge ..
  7. Hello All, I've completed the 3rd layer of planking 1.5 mm Balsawood sheets, also I did some sanding as well. thank you
  8. Hello All I resumed working on my Prins Willem. the work I did is completing the 2nd Layer planking and closed some gun hatches , Now i intend to start on the 3rd layer of planks , Balsa wood 1.5 mm thick.. Here is the photos , Thanks
  9. Good day all I resumed working on my Prins Willem Planking and Gun hatches .. I've completed the first layer of the planks, and started on the second one.. your comments are highly appreciated .. Here are the photos of the first and a little bit of the second Then .. Started working on the Gun hatches
  10. Hello All I started to work on the planking for this model, I intend to do 2 layers of planks as I have been doing with all my models. I use balsa wood and here is the firs layer of planks. I've completed the first layer and started to open the gun hatches, I guess it will look much better to keep them closed instead of putting the guns on the lower deck or do you think it will look better that way. Thank you
  11. This is fabulous .. Thank you very much ... These are great shots of the rigging details 👌👏
  12. Thank you Jan, No i didn't know that .. I'll search the photos of this model in amsterdam Rijksmuseum website .. I'm sure it will be a great help.
  13. Hello Jan, Yes I work from the drawing and this is totally Scratch.
  14. Hello All When I started the hobby of building model ships, I didn't have neither the knowledge nor the necessary tools to build the Models... and that led to some ugly ones 🤪😀.. However I didn't give up and kept reading and watching Videos.. I believe the Models I build after several trials became better then the old ones☺️☺️ ... One of the Ships I was (and am still) fond of is the Prins Willem 1650 .. a model which was built by many Modelers as it is a source of inspiration I guess .. I built it long years ago and here are the photos of that build 🙄 I know It is not so nice and it is not close to the Prins Willem either ,and the scale of the rigging components is not accurate. Please Notice the furled sails , they are not so professional .. not rolled as it should be 😏 So I decided to build it again after I gained some experience and intend to share the building log with you this time. It will always be very nice to receive your comments Thank you
