Hello to all who followed me here from my prior build log of the James B Colgate, and to all those who are interested in the bone and ivory ship models made, mostly, by the French prisoners taken by the British navy in the Napoleonic wars. I was recently asked to repair an attractive example of the type that had some substantial damage over the past centuries, as well as suffering some repairs, good and bad. In this log I will detail my progress and, in addition to some techniques that I have used before, I will ask for additional ideas from the collective wisdom of our community
From the album: Bone Bermuda Sloop of 1704This image is of the completed model on it's final Gold Leaf display stand. For anyone interested in the build photos, here is a link to my personal website. There are additional build photos of some of my RC model yachts. http://www.davidquerin.com You will note that my blog has not been updated for several months. I am just getting back in the saddle following a major health issue.This model was completed early last spring.
