Top job - looks brilliant.

Personal view but i would not glue stand to model as you can bet at some point you will wish you had not.

Many line the stand with felt so it does not damage paint on lower hull.

So what are you going to do next? Will it be another ship model?

Tony
Happy Modelling

Hi JohnP, BigGrin

These kits need some serious dedication and skill to complete, so you deserve every accolade they get.

On that point, congrats on your "Red" medal for a completed build.

Cool Cool Cool

I hope you have another project in mind or are thinking about one, as I for one will be following your progress.

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!

Hi Derek
Yes it was a lot more difficult than I initially envisaged - there was a lot of trial and error, with two steps forward and one step back as I had to work out how to do certain functions all the time....Blink I often found instructions in much later issues long after I'd spent time working on an item!!!Blushing
Sorry - I won't be doing any more projects...Blink
Regards
JohnP
