French 74-gun ship by matiz - scale 1:56 - Tiziano Mainardi

Recommended Posts

Just saw your wonderful workmanship. Truly amazing.


Can you explain how you make your treenails (fasteners ?) They appear to be cut from a triangular section stick, but they are so tiny! They are the correct scale. It really makes the model look great. Too many models have oversize, out of scale treenails.

Hello Bob, and thanks
my wooden treenails are triangular,  the measure are 0.3, 0.4, 0.5 mm ☺️

Thanks much, Matiz! That's what I figured. It must be tedious splitting off all those hundreds of wedges, but they really look great.  I enjoy your log very much. There's a lot to learn in it.

You deserve all kind of praise because you are a person of unique talent.

God bless you! 

Your words are very gratifying, but too important, for me and my work, I thank you infinitely 😊

I had a pleasure to see Tiziano's model in person in Rochefort, it is truly amazing! Bravo!

Was coming back to it over and over, there is something magnificent about it. It is made out of pear that Tiziano milled himself, and have a beautiful finish that is very unique. Very precise, there are no gaps and no cracks, even though the model is 17 years old...

Spoilers: the real model is ahead of the build log by a number of years. Smart move! :) 


Tiziano was very kind to share his techniques. As usual, the main one is "go slow, do not rush" ;)
