The figure head is now finished (not the ship as yet, unfortunately). Only about 450 more carvings to make...

G'day Janos
There are no words that I can say to express how marvellous this carving is.

Keep up the incredible carvings mate, and this ship should be in the museum.

Hello Janos

I am really impressed with your figure head carving, I only wish that I had acquired some of your carving skills, but alas they passed me by, ENJOY.

The current state on the attached photos. A bit of a number of things and as always, nothing is finished yet. What has changed? Handrails all around, belfry, side gallery roofs, rear lantern. Slow advance.
