This is an Admirality type model, plank on
frames, scale 1:96, and was commissioned
by a private collector. I started from a very
good set of Harold Underhill plans. Rigging
detail was developed from Lever’s and
Steel., most of the framing was built from
box wood. I planked the hull only above the
water line with pear, the deck was laid in
maple. The ship is fully rigged with no
sails. For rigging lines I had to make
custom thread using a rope making
machine. All blocks were made functional
with a sheave inside. I spend more than
3000 hours of intensive labour.
