18th Century Battle Station by Doc Blake - 1/24 scale

Post by DocBlake » Wed Sep 13, 2017 9:55 am

This is my scratch built 18th century battle station in 1/24 scale. I love working in the larger scales! The bulwark planking and gun carriage are blood wood, the hull planking is boxwood. The wales, rails and hatch coamings are rosewood and the deck is maple. The binnacle is made of cherry.

I love this model. Painting with wood. The binnacle looks like a nice piece of furniture.. in 1:24 scale!!

Great looking model Dave, especially the beautiful contrasting woods. I think you should build a HMY Fubbs in 1/24 scale. Now that would really be awesome, 44" long too!

Take care,
