Default Ship Model

Hello,
Here is my latest ship model.
The model is 100% built from scratch, one-of-a-kind, scaled @ 1/96. The model is 27" long x 12" wide, and 25" high mid-ship. And has 5 different deck levels, plank-on-frame construction. Total work hours on the model, 1,175, and about 10,000 pieces, about 61' of rigging.
Thanks,
Den

Good Lord Man, This a fantastic work of art. You should be very proud of your work. I wish I could see it in person. Wonderful! What did you use for plans?

I assume you do all the carving on these Den?
1,175 hours of work. That's like 30 weeks. At 5 days a week, 8 hours a day for 7.5 months. I'm sure you don't work on them like that tho. You must have small hands and be big on patience. Atta boy!!!!!

Just one word. Wow!

Pete
I've cut it twice and it's still too short! But only at one end.

I don't have any words that can express what I'm seeing. That is truly great work. What's your next project?

Cool, a fellow ship modeller.
These things are measured in years, I started a 1/100 HMS victory when we found out my wife was carrying, Abi is two now! ands I've still not got the upper decks finished.
