I am currently working on a wooden replica of the above mentioned ship and I have to tell you, this is the absolute hardest item I have ever had...tried to assemble. This model is the 37 inch version with so much detail and rigging it,s almost frightening to contemplate hooking it all up. I am currently about 3/4,s done the hull(all three skins)decking, gun ports(a real nightmare). all stairways ect. Next comes the guns,masts and rigging. This is my first detailed wooden ship model and I had no idea they were just so many stacks of wood to be shaped and moulded.....and the plans....oh yes ...lots and lots of paper plans on sheets of paper the size of the average kitchen table. Yet I gotta tell you it,s slowly taking shape...looking good actually and it,s a great way to relax,until I begin the rigging I guess.)) Anyway, as soon as I can get my son to show me how to put a picture of it on the net I shall do so. Anyone else out there ever give one of these models a go?

im just about done with a Tamiya USS Missouri model. 1:350 scale.
these are earlier pics. the blue tape is to protect the hull from scuff marks and scratch's
Is your model from scratch or is it a manufactured kit.
been looking for a kit to try and reabilitate my hands some to kep them limber

^Nice work, looks like it's coming along really well. I love the 1/700 scale Tamiya waterline series models. Highly detailed for such a small plastic model.
