Hello, I add some photos about my latest work.

The scale is 1/1200, also work for scale 1/1000. For the most part, I have used my own buildings, but I have also used Langton miniatures buildings. All boats are from Langton miniatures. People are from the EDUARD brand, scale 1/800 but work well with scale 1/1200.

I hope you like!

Beautiful. A fantastic diorama, with great atmosphere as well as the modelling and painting skills on show.

I absolutely love your harbor pieces Julian. Gorgeous.

In the second link you posted, what model is the small vessel behind the lugger?

Thank you whitejamest.
It's a scrachbuilt. The hull is from Meridian lifeboat, scale 1/700(I could do it because when I made Le Redoutable scale 1/700 I used the stacked boats instead of the loose boats), the masts are sewing pins and the sails are remains of Langton sails. The crew is from EDUARD, scale 1/800.

And – there is that 3 foot long pen of your again!

Really lovely job, as usual.

That dorama looks more realistic than the pen you used for scale.

How did you do the water?

Absolutely amazing!

Which Eduard set did you use for the crew?

ModelJShip Supporting Member of TMP12 Sep 2019 9:54 a.m. PST

To make the water, I applied several layers of varnish on a background of different types of blue. To make the waves, I applied a modeling paste to make waves.
