Incredible work Rusty, the level of detail is amazing. 

+1, combined with the colour of the wood its turning out to be a magnificent model.

Thanks Glenn and nzreg.

 

This is where I'm at on the port side quarter galleries, frieze and moldings.

The scrolls and top most moldings are Syren laser cut from cherry.

The center and lower molding were scraped from pear. They all work good together.

The roof for the galleries has been completed but is just sitting in place for now.

I still have to finish the top molding as well as the gallery fancy roof molding.

Then it's on to the starboard side.

Thanks JJ. I made them. I filed the profile into some flat brass stock. It took a few attempts to get some that I liked.

That is looking great Rusty.....Isnt better than building her at 3/16" scale?   How do you prefer the design changes over the last iteration?

 

The pear and Cherry look great together.....you cant even tell which is which.

Thanks Bob! Also thanks for all the likes.

 

Hi Chuck,

 

Thank you and yes building at 1/4" in many ways is much more fun. The use of pear and cherry

together has also far exceeded my expectations.

As far as the v.2 design changes go you've really improved everything especially the quarter galleries.

I thought the original design was a vast improvement over other kits method of assembling them.

This version is even a bigger step forward and I was pleasantly surprised that the quarter galleries were 

easier than I thought they would be. Any difficulties I had were self induced errors which I have had a few!
