Default Model Ship

Hello All,
I build ship models from scratch, the first tool I use is the scroll saw to cut out the frames for the hull. Here is a few photos of some of my ship models.
Thanks,
Den

Welcome to the forums, Den. I tried my hand at ship modeling once but never attained your level. Beautiful ship! Where do you get the plans?

Very attractive. Did you gild with gold leaf or did you paint those features?

Hello All,
Thanks for the warm welcome, and for all the kind words. All the gild work on the British Ship (300 hours) worth is Testors gold model paint. On my current model I am going to use 23Kt Genuine German gold leaf, http://www.densmodelships.zoomshare.com/12.html

Thanks,
Den

Den,

You sure do good work!

You're going to use real gold... at this very moment, the gold spot is only $946 per ounce! That's going to be an expensive ship!

I'm curious... do you use a router & template / patterns to prepare some of your ship parts?

Thanks for sharing... Fantastic work!!

Have Fun,
Joe

Thanks for the kind words Sir,
The 2 ship models above were built from scratch, no patterns or plans I sort-of
play it by ear, piece by piece. I do get ideas from books and other ship models on the web, that helps out alot.
I thank you all for the comments,
Den

I gild leather using gold leaf. A book of 25 leaves is about $70 but it goes a long way. Good thing!
