  1. Masterclass ! I'm very fond of the subtle weathering.
  2. Nice work, Patrick. A masterpiece is in the making. Our holidays began end of August. Just came back from a little city trip to Antwerp. Always recomendable ! Went to "Modelbouw Baliën "- nearby Borgerhout and I felt like Alice in Wonderland. How scarce such shops have become.
  3. Great Job, Jonathan Don't you worry about the historical accuracy. Much has been said if whether or not San Felipe is a fictitious ship . The most important is that you're acquiring tons of weight in experience by tackling this kit. And she's so good looking. Keep up the good work. (finished my specimen in 2006)
  4. Apologies for my late reply. Noticed your question, while browsing through old logs, etc,...I used all the ornaments, guns, gun carriages, etc... However : regarding the rigging I used additional blocks. One remark : this is an Ante-MSW building ( before MSW-membership). Otherwise, I'd rigged the guns+more details.
  5. Thanks Patrick + all the likes. Next episode : further details on the bow section + adding the copper plates. Purchased ( long time ago ) the necessary number of copper plates through Victory Amati. Regarding my previous build ( HMS Diana) , I still regret I carried out this operation using the copper plates supplied in the box : lesson learned. Take care.
  6. The additional ornament on the stern gallery was another story. As the curve was delicate, I splitted it up in 2 halves. Next pics show my woodcurving skills are limited, less to say equal to zero The decoration strips under the window are an assembly of 2 styrene strips : a half round 1,5 mm and a 1x2mm strip
  7. ....But I felt unhappy, so what do you do ? Of course...you rip it off and start all over again. So I took the opposite way : 2 small paper strips upon a black rail. Much better.
  8. For present update, I shifted my attention towards the bow section. Decoration rails, first attempt : Manaufacturing a relief-shape into a curved strip was a bit tricky, thus I avoided this roadblock by adding a black paper strip in the center....
  9. Price in 1955 : 12590 francs. = Wow, that was lot of money The brand "Singer" induced my wrong assumption. Good luck with the sails, Patrick
  10. Nice job, Mark As this hurdle awaits me, I'll be following your progress although I haven't figured out yet which path to follow : clay (Fimo) our wood carving.
  11. Leave the bad things behind and welcome the present, glad your back with us Mobbsie. I sincerely hope for Caldercraft's issue related to your project as it is quite on the Caldercraftfront or am I mistaken ? What about their 74 ?
