Her Majesty’s Armed Vessel Bounty is one of the most well known ships in history, due mainly to 3 movies made about the story of the mutiny that took place on her in 1783. This project took me 3 years to complete. I hope you like it

I can’t even imagine the amount of work that one would have to put into something as fine and detailed as that is.

Wonderful. What is the actual size of the ship and what scale is your model?

That is truly magnificent. I’ve been aboard the movie replica and it looks to me anyway, like your model is very true to life. The rigging must have taken extreme patience. What was your reference for the details, especially the rigging?

Great work

I’m truly amazed! The amount of detail on this makes it worthy of being in a museum.

This is amazingly well done. The rigging is just spectacular. I can’t remember ever seeing such a well detailed model before. I love these old vessels. I was lucky to have been aboard a copy of Drake’s Golden Hind when it was berthed at the London Tower quay back in 1974 and it didn’t look any more authentic than your model. I hope many more people will get the opportunity see it and enjoy your work.

Thank you all for your kind words.
@ Terry: Scale is 1/48 and the ship measures 980 mm long.
@shipwright: My references are the kit instructions and several books on the subject.
@stefang. I have a model of the Golden Hind also, but since it is plastic, it may be sacrilegious to post a photo here :)
