Excellent work!!!  I love the detail.  That looks to be quite a large model.

 

Is your decorative work painted or gold-leafed?

Not. It is a dissolution of gold in alcohol.
I use three different Golden shades: red, old and rich. I give several layers to mimic the tone of the old Spanish churches altarpieces.

The model is very small to use gold leaf

I'm speechless, this is no longer a shipmodel but a work of art.

Thank you...
You look at me with good eyes (proverb in Spanish)

Outstanding work.

I've never seen seen gunports before, that are so much larger than high.

Interesting feature.

In your ship, there's a gap between the beam underneath the beakhead bulkhead and the deck at the beak. Shouldn't it be closed up to stop overcoming water from entering the ship?

These ports are characteristic of English ships of that time. I strictly follow the Annapolis model and Mc Ardle ... Precisely this quadrangular form

As for the gap ... Give me time ... We are under construction:D

Fantastic work. That oven is incredibly well made. Unbelievable.

Just like the real deal. WOW!

Could you please tell us how you did it?

That's for sure the most life-like fitting I've ever seen.

The oven is made:
With a base of carved wood
Railway modeling brick
Painted with watercolor
Blue tin

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
