Well done John - a beautiful model in every way and a credit to you!Cool Cool Cool
I would also say don't glue to the stand - I think the most elegant stands for wooden ships are the brass pedestal type which screw or bolt into the keel. The wooden 'cradle' type I think should always be just a free standing support, as Tony said, once its glued you're stuck with it (sorry!BigGrin )
Brilliant work!

Robin.

Hi Robin
Thanks for looking in and the nice compliments...BigGrin
Can you tell me where I can obtain the brass pedestal stands as I have existing studs in the keel already....BigGrin
It's another option for me to consider....Cool

Hi John.

The first set of pedestals I bought for my Constructo 'Grimsby' I found in the local Antics model shop. The set I've got standing by waiting for the old DelPrado Victory are 35mm ones by Amati which I'm pretty sure I bought from Cornwall Model Boats but I think most of the model ship suppliers like Model Dockyard etc will also have them available. Having said that I've just tried a search and they are becoming really hard to find! There's some on ebay mostly from the US and China and the price has gone up a lot!
Might be worth looking around the on-line shops though. One of my model ship books had a photo of a lovely set of pedestals made from a pair of modern brass door knobs!Cool
Best of luck, I didn't realise they had got so scarce!

If you did fancy something different a set of dolphins or the like might suit.

A stunning result for all your efforts, patience and above all your skill.. Very well done John, you should be extremely proud of your achievement...Love Love Love

Really sorry to hear you won't be taking on any more projects. Your build from start to finish has been a real joy to follow and its a pity you won't be doing any more... Hopefully one day you'll change your mind and build something.....Cool Cool Cool

Hi Robin

There is nothing here in Australia so I have had a look at Cornwall, they haven't got what I'm looking for either. I will go on Ebay
as I'm thinking a pair of small brass candlesticks and cut off the bases, which might do the trick...Cool
Many thanks for your help....BigGrin

Hi Alan

Thank you for your kind words - they are much appreciated. No, I won't be doing any more projects as I am 78 and in declining health now....Glare
However, I am trying to source a display case as SotS is gathering dust. I have a possible supplier in San Diego US, so I'll post a couple of pics when it's all sorted....Cool

Hi Everyone

I've tossed her into a garbage bag!!!....Laugh

I have ordered a nice display case for her as she was collecting dust at a rapid rate....Blink

Delivery is up to 3 months away, so I've put her into hybernation for the duration!....LOL

Will update with photo when she is installed...BigGrin

Regards to all - and stay safe with all this viral mayhem going on...Cool
