Looks terrific !  I notice a lot of Russian Modelers use Black Hornbeam instead of Ebony.  Is it easier to work with - it certainly looks great.

Your work is an inspiration to someone who has completed this model by hand without the knowledge and skill to use my milling machine (Sterling). It took 12 years, having started with the original group and Gerard Delacroix’s guidance. Your wonderful results make me want to start all over again. Are you using a CNC SYSTEM? I’d love to see how you make those complex bevels on the hawse timbers and reproduce them for the opposite side!!

Thank you guys for all your likes😉.

To hdrinker: CNC milling maschine was used mainly for cutting of frames. But the beveling had to be done manually. Beveling of hawse timbers was somewhat more complicated.

Aft, all the bulkheads are now completed.

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.ï»żï»ż

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.
