  1. Thank you very much for your kind comments! They are highly appreciated. And thanks for all the likes! Thomas
  2. You did a great job on your Granado! Congratulations! She turned out beautifully! Thomas
  3. Some progress on the longboat: Planking and clean-up is finished (imgs 1-3), hull is painted (imgs 4-5), floor boards, front grating and thwarts are done (imgs 6-7), chocks are mounted on the gallows bits (img 8), and the windlass is installed (img 9). Img 10 gives an overall impression of the Syren with the (unfinished) longboat in place. Thomas Image 1 Image 2 Image 3 Image 4 Image 5 Image 6 Image 7 Image 8 Image 9
  4. As your stern davits are a bit further apart one possibility would be to move the left ringbolt used to hang the jolly boat a little bit towards the bow. That will increase the distance between both ringbolts in the jolly boat, which will cause the takle ropes to come down more vertically and your boat is better centered. Of course, none of that is really needed as it already looks fine as it is 👍 Thomas
  5. Your stern carvings are very nicely done. Imo I would just work on the dimensions a little bit, otherwise they may be a bit overpowering 🙂. I am adding an image of what I think is one of the best examples for the Syren stern carvings from the model of Rendrich Lightley, which is on exhibition in the naval museum of Annapolis. Of course, you are the artist and it is your model - so ultimately there is only your opinion which is of importance 😉 Thomas
  6. I would not worry about the color difference. Keep in mind the deck will be pretty cramped with all kinds of other details such as carronades etc. The little color difference will play no role at all. Thomas
