An arduous week, but most of the exterior detail associated with the hull, bulwarks, and the rudder is now complete.
Applying detail to a model of this small size is a long and time consuming job, but rewarding as you watch the ship starting to take shape.
My aim is to have the hull completed by the end of next week. This will involve planking of the decks, application of paint throughout the hull, and then completion of small details dependent upon such.
From Mike Bass, the model maker.
