Hello All,
Here is my latest ship model that I built from scratch, it is a scale 1/96, 64-Gun British Warship.

The model is 27" long x 12" wide, and 25" high mid-ship. And has 5 different deck levels, plank-on-frame construction. Total work hours on the model, 1,175, and about 10,000 pieces. About 61' of rigging.
Here is a few photos.

Thanks for your time,
Den

fantastic job!
I thank everybody for the kind words, and for visiting my site.
Here is more photos of my ship models.
My current ship model in the making, scaled 1/48, the hull is 43" long x 12" wide x 9" high mid ship. The keel and frames are made out of pine, planked in cherry wood and popular. This model when finished will be about 6' long and about 3' high. All the gold work on the model will be surfaced with Genuine 23Kt Gold Leaf, it will look some what like the British Ship.

Thanks again,
Den

Great job on both ships

I will take one if you can build it full scale. I think I could live in it and have a wood shop in the lower decks. That would be way cool.
