    That is already looking great Vol. You really have mastered those sails.

    Very good work Vol. The appearance of those sails is very good. The masts also look very crafted.

    Thank Julian
    Hardly mastery Rob, haha! It is only the second set. I did make new stencils for the main course and stay sails for 1st and 3rd rates going forward. Eventually I'll need stencils for studding sails as well.

    If it's only your second set that is all the more impressive Vol.

    A veritable Armada Jonas. My word, they do look good.

    That is a lot of ships Jonas! I envy your ability to work on so many at one time. I can only do one at a time.

    I am the same as you Vol. I very seldom indulge in batch production even though it has its advantages.

    And I envy Chris’ ability to get ships finished quickly and with rigging and ratlines.

    And it’s only after I got my 3Dprinter I started batch work.

    Somehow printing five ships at a time made me prime them in batch and then paint the deck in batch and then the hull. By that time I didn’t even have bases and sails. Then I found Simon’s good sails and Chris made the bases.

    That reminds me that I need to buy PVA glue for the bases and probably a blue spray paint to make it easier.

    I bought 30 bases of Chris and I have 23 Spanish ships in the works. Add to that Bahama and Rayo it would make it at least 25 ships of the line. I need more than 5 Spanish frigates just for the big battles. It’s something like 4 36 gun and 2 40 gun frigates plus smaller crafts at St Vincent. Hmm… If I’m to put all of the Spanish on similar bases (that would look good) I think I need more of them…

    The best of luck to you sir.
    All I managed today was to knock out some HEIC cards.

    Nice cards Rob. I know you have said before but I can't recall. What program are you using again to produce them?

    Just good old photoshop Vol. Got a game taking up my time today but hope to find enough time to do my last HEIC cards for the Camden. These two ships are curtesy of Neil. I snagged them at Doncaster when he was selling up his ships.
