    Default Refurbished Orient

    This is one of the ships Gunner gifted me a few years back for doing some work on a couple of his ships. The masts were removed and the hull was drilled for rigging. Planking seams were carved into the deck. Grating was installed in three places. Skylight painted on the cabin and some color added to the stern and quarter galleries. The masts and top masts were replaced with music wire and the ugly plastic connecting the sails to the plastic masts was removed with a Dremel tool. I also made a sea base to fit the Ares stand for display.

    Superb work Vol.
    It is hard to credit that a swan can emerge from an ugly duckling.
    I certainly would not wish that one catching fire at the Nile.

    The Business of the commander-in-chief is first to bring an enemy fleet to battle on the most advantageous terms to himself, (I mean that of laying his ships close on board the enemy, as expeditiously as possible); and secondly to continue them there until the business is decided.
