HMS Winchelsea 1764 by Rustyj - 1:48

Not so much sharp eyes as been there before. Cutting the rudder hole opening and filing it out to the correct size with all the angles involved is nerve wracking.  I too took the "close enough" approach on my Swan class model.

I was able to find a little time to complete the rudder cover and the benches.

The parts are laser cut from cherry by Syren. and are perfect.

Now I have to clean up any dust so I can add the windows to the stern and Q galleries DSC00406.thumb.JPG.f916f942fdb2378b2d117c41547c4a28.JPG

 Your painting and color choices are excellent, it looks natural and authentic

Thanks Glenn. It's been fun trying to get a good look with the various woods and paint to accent the friezes. Now if I could just squeeze in some shop time. 

 

also thanks for all the likes!

Wow those colors, so warm and colorful... Maybe I’ll build a second one with your example, when this one’s finished in Alaskan Yellow Cedar. Plenty if Swiss pear lying around here, didn’t it combines so nice with the cherry!
