Hi all well all the detail painting on the hull is done.

I've glued the cannons on the sinking side as when it's attached to the base I think it would be very difficult.





Added to the base, need to get some more Poundland bathroom sealant now for the sea

I would love to add some figures but can't find any to add to it.

Ken,

That is some amazing work you have done there with that water. The water looks very angry.

Hi Ken,

as Mark said, the water looks really good and 'angry', that's a very cool impression you created!

Cheers,
Jan

Hi all next update





I was going to add some stays but Airfix would have you use the God awful plastic coated cotton ratline thingies so no hole through the crows nest



Wish I hadn't added the main stays now as drilling out the holes in the crows nest will probably slacken them all off

That would be so cool! Unfortunately, Wasa-era figures aren't likely in 1/144... maybe you could find something in 1/160 (railroad N-Scale)? Check out your local model train store - you might get lucky. Or perhaps Shapeways or some other 3-D printing service might offer something...?

Medieval Guards

Here are some Medieval Guards figures offered at Shapeways in 1/87; maybe they can print some for you in 1/144?
