Thank you dear friends,
your words mean a lot for me and I am really very honoured. I also thank you warmly for awesome inspiration I find here in your build logs. I admire your work on ship models a lot.
Royal Caroline is my newest and concurrently best model I have built, but  I must admit, there are some of details and things, that could be made better. So I will have an occasion to find new ways, how to improve the work at my future scratch builds.Royal Caroline is exposed together with Sovereign of the seas at the nicest place in the room, where we have more than 30 ship models. This is my most favorite room in our house. :wub:

Doris, I can't find words that accurately describe or praise your work, other than to say absolutely stunningly beautiful model! You have certainly outdone yourself on this one and can be very proud of your accomplishments! I look forward to your nest build!

Congratulations, DORIS. Your model is a real stunner. Like I said many pages back - I have seen many Royal Carolines, but yours is the most Royal of them all. Until I saw your model, it was my intention to build a RC. Not any more - I can't possibly do a better job than you, and I doubt if many people on this website (which is already full of talented people!) would be able to do it either.

Phew Doris - your Caroline is out of this world - as are your other ships in the photos. I really can only dream of working at this level. Wonderful. I am looking forward to seeing you applying your skills to the plastic kits - I am sure it will be a revelation. 

 

BTW - all the best in your new job.  :)

Doris,

 

I am glad your postings have returned.  Thank you for the pictures and video of your completed model.  I am speechless.  The work is simply stunning - interiors, exteriors, rigging, carvings, finish, attention to minute detail....  I could go on.  I especially loved the burl tabletops, the fretwork on the chair backs and the paintings.  You have set an impossible standard for the rest of us mortals.  Go, Doris!

Doris,

 

You stay away for a while and when you come back ,I think that almost everyone is in shock........

At least I am !!!!!!!!!

Another beautiful creation coming from your hands !

You told us that you have more then 30 models in one room ??????

Are you living in a palace ???????

And a question from me.....do you have a favourite model ????

( Should be a difficult thing to choose one )

Thanks for the movie......next time I want to see YOU doing the presentation  :D  :D  :D  :D

G'day Doris

I've been reading your log from the beginning with my jaw on the ground. I can't believe what artistic craftsmanship that you have lovingly put into this amazing ship.

I find it hard to believe it's made mostly of card and very little tools. Its mind boggling to say the least!

I'll be looking forward to your next card masterpiece with baited breath.

Goodonyou!

Congratulations again on an inspirational piece of art!

Greg from the land down under!

Doris,

 

Finally got an email update, somehow missed your last few updates.

 

Beyond descriptive words. Such beautiful art. Interiors alone are stunning. Also loved the video such a peacefully captive ten minutes Oh my.

 

Yes "relax" and take on a French ship. Be sure to identify this next project with "kit Bashing" in the title (:-) 

Congratulations on another stunning model.

 

Sincerely,

 

Michael

Hello dear friends,
let me express my sincere gratitude to all your comments, praise and congratulation. Thank you warmly for your kind words. That is a great honour for me and I appreciate it a lot.

This card model of Royal Caroline is one of my best I've ever created, but nothing is perfect and without mistakes and there are some things that could be made better or more realistic.

So there are lessons for next time and next projects.....

Thank you very much for your support and a great inspiration I have found here - in the family of model ship builders and very kind people.
I wish you a lot of success with model building and also a great time and much fun.
Kind regards
Doris

Thank you dear friends.

KeithW: Well, people often visit me and want to see the models with their own eyes. And I say, please enjoy. :)
