Well, there ya go Derek.  I've always known the term "Forecastle" as this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Forecastle .  Evolutionary sort of thing in ship design.  "Fore"  always meaning before the main mast or mast.  The castle part is as design shows.. kinda looks like the turret of a "castle". . could it be?   Tks for your kind comments.  I'm anxious for the build to end.  The Spritsail rigging is a bit pesky in my books, maybe tenious is a better word?  Tons of rigging just to adjust and support that yard and her sail as you will soon see.  Its fun.  Dennis

Its called a fore castle as in ye olde days, the main arnament was a group of archers,  so they needed some protection and vessels looked for all in tense like castles on water, apparently they had nets over the middle section to prevent boarding, I remember a program suggesting that a particular wreck lost all hands to 'not just that the sailors could not swim', but when it turned turtle, those that could, were not able to get out due to the netting.

Well folks, the Mayflower model is now finished.  All I have to do is make a wood base and mount with brass pedistals.  I'll snap some better pictures when that is done as a final.  Its been a challenging and fun build, hope you all that followed enjoyed it as much as I did.  I believe the fella I'm gifting this to will be much pleased.  My next project appears to be a 1/200 scale model of the USS Arizona done in "paper".  I will post the build over on the Military section of this forum in a few days.  Cheers!  Dennis

Fantastic job. :-))  I am amazed it only took you 6 months (to the day when you first posted) to complete.

Gee, it didn't seem that long.  It used to take me 1-3 yrs to do a wood model.  Always depends on complexity..... clipper ship is a good solid 3 yr project, small cutter, 3 mos.  Plastic or resin models, much faster.  Less custom hand work and shaping.  Dennis

Thats a lovely job Dennis and I have to agree its been done in really good time too.  Its a shame to let it go really but thats the way it is with commissions I guess.  Whats the next build going to be?

Thank you for the kind comments.  My next project will be a difficult one, as I have not worked in paper before.  the build is of the USS Arizona in 1/200 scale. When I ordered it, I recieved a stack of color printed sheets, plus a stack of 1mm card stock and a set of instructions that are horrible at best.  Alot of clueing and cutting and precise folding.  A picture of the finished model is stunning, if its truly paper.  I'm gonna find out.  I'll be posting that build over on the military page.  I am in process on the mounting stand for the Mayflower and will provide pics of that when done next week.  regards,  Dennis

She's an absolute beauty Dennis. Hope the owner appreciates the work and the skills involved in its creation.
