I have decided for a bit of a change to do a bit more on my Royal William,
as i have said before i am not much good at carving so over the years i have
collected things that can replace the carvings, these next few pics show what i mean,

for the scroll work i will be using these cast metal picture frames,

this is a pic of the transom with all the various carvings,

202.jpg
this is with some of the cast Britannia figures that i will be using and also some of the metal inserts that i will incorporate in the cross rails,

close up of the inserts, once the eye rings have been removed they should be ok,

I also managed to pick up a few cherubs in different sizes that I will use under the windows, i only had a
couple but made moulds to produce more, i will have to think of a new name to call her,

and the same with the port side, that is where these frames are great they mirror image each side,

I found another one of these yesterday, this is exactly what I used for the figure head,

Ik also keep all the lasercut frames intact and keep them if i need to make New part for correction or if i want to build it again. From lasercut small parts i also make a copy with my printer so i can remake them if windows or other parts are wrong sanded and dont fit any more.
