Absolutely gorgeous work Julian, I always love seeing your ships!

Great looking squadron. I especially like your frigates, with courses and royals set. Really spectacular work!

Are you using GHQ anchors and boats? And do you have a good source of information for flags and pennants used by the various navies?

Brilliant as usual.

Thank you for your compliments!

KniazSuvorov: Anchors are handmade, boats are from Langton. Regarding source of information for flags and pennants Ido not use a source specifically, I usually use google to find info but I believe that the Russian fleet used this flag on its navy. They also used the royal pavilion but I have simplified all doing the same flag.

TGerritsen: LOL I laughed alot when I saw it!

Hmm, it never occurred to me to try to make my own anchors.

Do you have any close-up pictures of a finished one Julian?

KniazSuvorov: Do not worry, when I make another anchor, I will take some pictures of contructivo process, it is realtive easy!
