Well, I'm on fire this week with two blog entries. This time, the Spanish fleet gains another 74 gunner, with a paint job inspired by a painting. Check it out at:

Awesome work Brian, and I love that you painted her as she appears in Pocock's painting!

Thanks guys. As much as I love my ships, I do get tired of yellow/black and so go through paintings looking for something a little different. Since Pocock is noted for his accuracy,I figure he is always a safe bet to crib from.

Nice ships Brian; I like this scheme of colours

Vol and Julian,
Thanks guys. I wanted to try and narrow down the white stripes a bit, but as I get older I find that my hands aren't quite up to it any more. Doing it on my Santissima Trinidad nearly drove me crazy.

Julian,
I am VERY jealous of your port and harbor models right at the moment.

Brian,

Julian is a very young man with very young eyes and hands. Unlike me with dinosaur aged eyes and hands requiring all the magnification and steadying gadjets known to man and still not be able to come close to matching the details these younguns like Julian and James can do.

Vol,
Oh, I completely understand that! I turned 52 this year, and have worn glasses since I was about 17. I bought an Opti-Visor type magnifier a few years ago, but have never used it. After finishing this ship, I'm thinking it might be time to try it out.

Brian,

You sir, are also a young man!

Vol,
Thanks, but my eyes would beg to differ with you.
