1759 ROYAL LOUIS
After 8 Months of loving this build, heavily improvising her with Dowels, ratlines, deadeyes and blocks, Cannon tiebacks and Cannon shot etc.. pushing my capabilities, my 1759 ROYAL LOUIS - HELLER 1/200 is FINISHED.
5 months of building the kit and rigging her up and 3 months to Hand sew 20 sails and add reef lines, Bowlines and Braces, I can honestly say I feel burnt out, strained but very happy.
It may not be perfect or historically accurate but I have pushed my own capabilities to the max, I still have a lot to perfect and learn, if I can.
But for now I can sit bk and enjoy her as I hope some of you will.
Happy modelling everyone and keep building and enjoying our great hobby and Art.
All the best and #staysafe
