Airfix Royal Soveriegn
« on: May 09, 2015, 09:43:04 pm »

well I know I shouldn't as were off on hols tomorrow but I couldn't resist













Just wanted to see how it compared to the heller la reale and I think it is deffo as good, once I've added the black it will be stunning.

Wow.  If you apply the same techniques that you used to superb effect of La Reale this is going to be a magnificent model.

Sorry to go all 'Yoot' here, but you are becoming the master of Bling ships! Your work on the Reale is excellent, so this should be amazing, given the height of the stern.

Hi all we have arrived safely in Egypt . Wow it is hot, the staff are friendly and it is clean (the Internet sucks though) so probably no pics, but it is really nice.

That is good to hear. Have a great time and don't climb on any of those pointy buildings. What are they called?

Hi all well back off hols and made a tentative start on this one












The kit comes with stubby half cannons for the lower decks( I may live to regret this but Ive decided to open up the gun ports and make some whole guns to put behind them, since they are below decks and you wont see much of them they wont need to be too detailed or accurate, and I am only doing one side as they would never do a broadside on both sides, I mean what admiral in his right mind would choose to take the risk of a broadside on both sides at the same time) also it means I've only got to make 30 guns and carriages. I also have to make part decks for one side.

If the ship is engaged on both sides simultaneously then the Captain might order it.

Looking good! Even in a simlified form, you are doing a lot of work to this model.

In my opinion, the answer is yes. The cannon muzzles look really effective.

Hi all decided to guild this side before I put the top guns in as it will be harder when they are poking out.

Gosh that is one bling ship Ken! Still, your way of treating the gold and any other colours will mute that down some.

That's why he introduced the ships tax at a cost of 68,476 she was the most expensive ship of the time.
