Thanks Jan!!
Here is another update of my wood ship model - Brigantine Phoenix. I've added a few more deck items and finished the bow area. I've used almost no paint on this - it's all Minwax natural, ebony, dark walnut and golden oak.

The colors look great on everything! They're all very natural looking. Those pumps look nice and detailed, too!

This is absolutely freaking STUNNING work! Your HMS Victory was awesome, and this one is even prettier with all that lovely unpainted wood. I don't do wood ship models myself, but I'm following your build with interest and delight!
