Thanks,
They don't take all that long! AMARNA took about 123 hours to complete and I was very tired of it eventually. Scale far too big for my liking. Most of my models take about 50/60 hours!

Thanks, merchant sailing ships are easy enough, no fancy decoration or anything like that! The rigging is also very easy, but can be quite repetitive. It is far more difficult to make a steamship with lots of portholes, windows, rails, lifeboats, decks, deck machinery etc.

I'm really fascinated by your skill. :bow-blue:
I'd like to see the technical construction sequence. When a full build-log?
Congratulations, Laerte

Thanks,
There is a build log of the four-masted barque Pass of Brander running in SOS Build Logs Scratch or from Plans, but it isn't attracting much interest at the moment. If you click on my profile (below) and then go and have a look at my website, you will see much more!

Carl,
This one, the Norman Court, sold at a maritime auction in London several years ago for £600.
I don't send them to auction any more because the overheads (transport, commission, marketing fees etc ) are now too high!
