1/70 Soleil Royal Pg 3

Posted by Paul On September - 20 - 2018

10/6/2020. A few more pictures to bring the build up to date.   All of the top deck cannons have been built, installed and rigged.  More parts added to the bow.  The ladder material was much too thick, so I used to thin cut cherry wood pieces that I had in stock.  This made the ladders look much more realistic.   Notice the ladder framework I've built from white plastic.  This made the ladder construction much easier and more precise.      

1/3/2021 I've finished, attached and lashed down the two ships boats.  They are two individual kits from Master Korabel located in Russa.  One is 90mm, the other is 75mm in length.  These are much nicer and more detailed than what is supplied in the kit.

1/14/2021 I've finished the mast sections on my 1/70 scale model of the Soleil Royal from 1669. This is an all wood model. You can start to get a feel of the size of this beast.

2/9/2021  Here is another update with a few more pictures.


3/22/2021  A small update.  All of the shouds and done and some ratlines finished.  Now on to thousands and thousands of clove hitches.

4/6/2021 I'm still rigging the ratlines, the lower portside is finished – on to the starbord side.  It seems to never end.  This is NOT my favorite part of the build.
