@dlancast:

Dennis, keep going while ever you can mate....

You can be assured that you are bringing us great joy with your building, and we really appreciate that you have chosen to share your building with us; I for one have learnt a great deal on the way through this boat.

Our thoughts are with you.. O0

Sri about that.  My original thread started back in 2011 with the hull and plating, etc.  I tried a search and did not have alot of luck finding that original thread.  If you go to page one, you will pick me up as I began the masting rigging of the model. I think I changed the name of my thread as I started by removing Ajax per the name of the kit I'm working from.  I then later discovered that there probably was never a Frigate named "Ajax" (common with kits), so I changed it to a general English Frigate of 1760 vintage.  Oh well.

Dennis

I found the original thread with the search function - I just put AJAX in and it was the second item, almost finished reading it before going onto some other job, so will need to finish it before I decide on the next project.  :-))

Well folks,  my English Frigate is essentially complete with the installation of the larger ships boat, now suspended in her cradle.  What remains now is to build a case for her and get her on display.   I will continue to post until that time.  Must move on to the big boat out in my garage shop.  Pics to follow here:
Tks for all of your kindness and support over the years.  Lord willing, I do have plans to build a true plank of frame Admiralty model, open framed, min. rigging.
Best regards,
Dennis :-))

A magnificent build. This has without a doubt been the best thread on the site over the last year or so.

Dennis,

Thank you for sharing this build.
I found my way to it part way through but have been back over both this thread and the hull build thread, a joy to follow.

I have really enjoyed it and have also learnt a great deal on the way through!

thank you sir..... the build has been a real joy.  I'm currently working through the mounting stages to the cherry wood base I purchased on-line.  I have found a great case maker in Texas (USA) who may be building me an unfinished kit out of cherry.  Awaiting his quote forthcoming.  I just don't feel I have the time now to build my own and need to move on to my full size skiff build. Each day is a premium for me.

Dennis

Just a quick update folks.  I have finished the English Frigate build and have been waiting on the case frame to be built.  I have the frame and just got the glass cut.  Case is huge and heavy.  Next week, I will be having friends over to assist on assembly and setup and will provide photos at that time.
In the mean time, I have been busy with finish work on a 15ft sailing skiff that I have been building.  I am also battling cancer still and dealing with radiation treatments and side affects.  All in the good Lords hands how much time I have left, but wanted to get these projects completed in due time.
So, I'm still walking around and enjoying lurking on the site.  Blessings to all.

Thanks for the update Dennis.  There must be a great sense of satisfaction as you put your lovely model into the display case.  I have enjoyed your build enormously.

Have you sailed your skiff yet?  You might slip a couple of pictures of her in as well - not strictly a model boat I know, but I reckon we would all love to see your handiwork.

I hope all goes for the best with the treatment.

Greg

I can't wait to see the finished ship complete with the display case, it must look superb. I wish you well Dennis and hope you can go on battling for many more years.

Dennis,
"Done" - just one word for all that work?

"Magnificent" I reckon!!!
Or "Awesome" if the observer is of a younger generation  ;)

Tks for the kind responses.  I like to call it a labor of love.  That case took 4 strong men to assist in the setup.  Huge and over 100lbs (us).  My vision for the next project may be open plank of frame "admiralty style".  Like so many of these ship models, the fine detail work is covered up.


Fairwinds,


Dennis
