Hello! Expose your court wood model ship HMS Royal William of 1719. The model is made by Euromodel drawings in 1/72 scale without the use kit from scratch.
The wood body of ship model is made on a “shell”. But, instead of “blanks” I used the drawing frames, half then removed to complete the deck. This method then saw a I.Kapinosa. “The shell is thick on the ribs” … feed for backlight LED. I mainly used for the production of veneer patterns, but there are also solid wood: pear, walnut. All wooden elements are painted, I tried to play with color. The decor, with some deviations from the drawing (curls on the sides) made of clay FIMO. Stained with gold paint from a container at a great distance from the cell, so as not to “pour” and podtemnyal bitumen. Ropes 2 colors are made of polyester. On vehicle models used ropes about 14 diameters.
History of the prototype ship models
HMS Prince (also referred to as Royal Prince) was a 100-gun first rate ship of the line of the Royal Navy, built by Phineas Pett the Younger at Deptford Dockyardand launched in 1670
HMS Prince was rebuilt by Robert Lee at Chatham Dockyard in 1692, and renamed at the same time as HMS Royal William. During the War of the Grand Alliance the ship saw action at the Battle of Barfleur of 19 May 1692. The Princebelonged to the red squadron and carried the flag of Rear Admiral of the Red Sir Cloudesley Shovell. She was the first ship to break the French line during the battle.
Later she was rebuilt for a second time by John Naish at Portsmouth Dockyard from 1714, relaunching on 3 September 1719.
Wikipedia has an article about the ship – a prototype of my wooden model
Very interested in potential purchase of this fantastic model. Please provide dimensions if it is still available: width, length and height and of course the cost.
This model is fantastic! The window bars are a bit thick, but other than that it is one of the nicest models I have seen. nice work! Could you add the dimensions of the finished ship?
Are you geared up to provide a kit for the model as you made it or is it as one off? I agree with the previous comment it is one of the best treatments, certainly of the basic hull and planking I have seen,

The QUESTION here is ‘how much do you want for this splendid model?’
