Just catching up on your HMY Fubbs, you sure are doing a fantastic job on her and along with all of that great detail that I love to see so much. I can not believe the speed that you are building her as it looks like she is almost to the Rigging stage and here I am still cutting and gluing up framing segments for my Oliver Cromwell, Great work and a big Well Done, ENJOY.
Thank you very much for your kind words. My version of the HMY Fubbs is a lot simpler than Bob Hunt’s built, his has a lot of fine painting and carvings that I could not do well so I did the fast and easy.
You are doing an excellent job on your Oliver Cromwell, the frames always seem to take forever, as you get a little more experience they go a lot faster. I am glad you are enjoying my build log.
Hi Zoltan, the design for the quarter galleries came from Romero’s practicum, I modified it a little.
Hi Janet, Thanks for your kind words. An updated cad version of the plans can be obtained from Bob Hunt.

The wood for the keel and framing is European Beach wood, the false keel is rose wood. I am also using basswood, blood wood, walnut, boxwood and ebony as shown in the details.I try to take a lot of photos.
Thanks Janos, I wish I was half the carver you are your work is impeccable.
Hi Dave, I printed out the parts I was interested in but didn’t download the whole practicum. They have been looking for it on Model Ship Builder, but I don’t think they have found it yet. The Wayback Machine would help but Arthur misplaced the starter fluid.
