Hello, I add some photos about my last work.
HMS Neptune and Le Formidable.

I hope you like it.

Hi Julian,
Very well done, They are lovely. I love the smaller boats around the ships. But you have missed out the running-rigging on the bottom of the fore and main course's.
Be safe

Beautiful work again Julian! I love looking at your photos, and I hope you will start a blog or the like so we can browse all your lovely work in one place.

What material do you sculpt the waves out of?

I agree – the smaller boats add a lot!

Great work and I agree, the little boats add a lot of character

Thanks Vsdoc, I had not seen. Imagine that the client would think …
whitejamest. I use pulp paper with white glue and colorant.

The advantage: no stain the hull, easy to handle, can be cut without cracking when dry (not as mastic).

Disadvantages: need to varnish (dense varnish, apply with brush, no spray or airbrush…) to finish the effect of sea-textured, slow drying (drying glue time).

I hope you will be helpful

A greeting,

Le Formidable est magnifique & the Neptune is fantastic.
Very impressive indeed.
