  1. Thank you for the advise. There are several mistake in the model due to mine inexperienced, but I have studied a lot during the last months, I will apply what learned for the next model. This model will be a gift for my stepfather, but i want to rebuild the Unicorn in the future, after the Diana and the Alert, this time following the real ship plans and applying what I learned working on this model ship.
  2. Thank you very much Tom and Theuerdank, this is my first time with sails, so yours compliments are very welcome!
  3. Little update, new hammock net, topsail and topgallant.
  4. Little update, working to the sail, first time for me, need a lot of work but i like the result so far. .
  5. I did some 3D models for IL2 1946, but airplane only, sorry. Cant Z506 Cant Z1007 Fulmar
  6. Rigging done, what a nightmare .... New hammock, i will use this.
  7. @ Megiddo: the hammock are less haight than the rudder (rudder should be, plus or minus, haight as a man), so the red clothes can shoot above the hammock stowage. @Tom: I will try several size and material, actually is more like a double size hammock, there is space for a woman of easy virtue when the ship is in the port. Not sure admiralty would have appreciated it ....
  8. Really nice ship and model Tom. I think i will paint the next one, i like the "wood only" appearance, but colored looks more realistic. The Corel Unicorn is nice but is just a "generic ship of the era", there are too much inaccuracy to be called "historically correct". Yesterday i did the hammocks stowage and also tried to make some hammocks (too big, isn't it?)
  9. @ Diceman: I did a plastic ship model when i was a little kid, but they are not so good as they are for airplane, tank, etc etc Wood models are expensive, both the kit and the already built models, the last very expensive when high quality. If I will do another one i will go for plans only, after all are the only thing you really need, all the wood, cannons, rigging, etc etc can be bought at cheaper price in a good model kit-shop. @ Allegra: Thanks mate.
  10. I'd like to know if other NA mates have some experience in ship models, and of course i would like to see their work. Personally i did two models, a baltic ketch and a frigate by COREL model kit, i'm not totally happy with them, especially the shape of frigate's keel, but I think they are not bad for a beginner. The frigate is not finished yet.
