Here's my rather crude rendition of Airfix's 1/72 Golden Hind. Built basically OOB. I added period sailors by RedBox. The flags are painted foil and the seascape was reclaimed from a previous piece.

Aye up Ratch,

 

Can't see anything crude about it. The figures and sea really add life to the model. Very nicely done sir. :worthy:

 

Regards,

Really like this, she looks busy in just the right way. And the sea looks spot on!

 

Well done.

Very nice. Coincidentally I just got back from a few days down West and  visited a National Trust property, Buckland Abbey, the other day while down in Devon/Cornwall where there is a Francis Drake exhibition going on with artefacts and stuff. Found out it was his home. Worth a visit if you are in the area.

Buckland isn’t too far from brixham where the 1:1 scale replica is. Not very authentic but good fun.
