It was quite challenging to setup brass sails,i hope you like it.

Very nice!! The Langton white metal sails are easier to build, but the brass look so much better.

A very beautiful model, excellent work on every aspect!

Well done! It is curious that you paint the hull without glue the mask firstly.

Thank you all for your comments.

@SgtPrylo now when i look at finished ship i agree,in the end it's worth that additional effort to setup brass sails despite all possible horror that may happen during the process.One ship with metal sails left to do,rest of them will have brass ones.

@whitejamest thank you!

@ModelJShip I presume by "the mask" you meant on ship's stern,if so,i tend to do that since it is easier for me to paint it and i want to cover the hull fully with paint,after all it must be protected from the sea :)

Currently on "dry dock" are two British 74 gun ships and HMS Indefatigable.
I forgot to add that ship above is painted entirely with oils.

yes, I wanted to say the stern. Nice work!
