Le Renard by Tompslattery - FINISHED


Recommended Posts

Hi

 

I started this kit approximately 11 years ago.  It has traveled half away across the eastern side of Australia through various moves.  Last time I looked at it was roughly 5 years ago.  Pulled it out and decided to try and finish it.  Its haunted by the ghosts of mistakes past.  These are photos of where I left it.

Following your build with much interest. I have the AL version on the shelf, waiting to be built ( a few others as well, though). The life size replica can be seen in Saint Malo, France. I hope make a trip on the ship one day soon. Did you know there is another build going on on this site? By Gaffrig. Also the Artisana version. Enjoy!

Well tonight could've gone better.  I was unhappy with how this railing that the bowsprit slots through turned out, so I decided to try pulling it apart to do it again.  Should've just left it.  Broke of 3 of the corner ends as well as splitting pieces off longitudinally.  Manage to glue most of the bits back onto the rail except for one corner.  Now to recut the 3 posts and hope I get it square this time
