Those cannons look menacing to would be pirates, they really are a nice detail.

I think the ship is looking good. I don't know much about ships so while I'm enjoying following along I've been sitting on my hands, but I see nothing screaming "paper" to me. I see just quality work.

When I look at the captainís quarters and that cannon in the room next door I get an image of Sgt. Schultz firing the cannon and Col. Klink giving him he11 for shooting it off without permission. [:-captain]

Thanks for the nice posts, all of you, much appreciated.

Carl - everything from paper about like regular computer paper through card about 1 mm thick.
The majority is like a light card or heavy paper. When card is used the parts are first glued to the
card and then cut out.

Here's a full hull shot at this point



Here is shown more work on the stern and the addition of the rudder




another stern first shot from a different angle




Here's the waist with the gangways for the seamen to travel between the fore deck and upper deck. There's more to add here.



Bob

Beautiful Bob.

Just where did you get this from?? And was it very expensive? I know someone who's into ships it would be a great gift for him!!

Thanks for posting guys.
Jerry, yes it was rather expensive because the shipping was almost as much as the kit. It came from Poland, check it out:

I agree with Rich. It sure doesn't look like a paper model.

Bob,

Tremendous build. I am amazed at the transom paint job... you must have one steady hand.

$25.41 for the ship, and $20.00 for transport. I've spent more for far less....
This is a beautiful model Bob' and worth it. They have a nice website, and nice selection of models'..

Bob,

I'll agree with everybody else on the superb job you're doing, but do have one question.... Does Charlie Noble make an appearance here? [:-boggled]
