1/450 La Réale 1864 (Revell)
This is my first attempt to built a sailing ship. Revell 1/450 kit is rather small and simple so I rebuilted most parts beyond its hull with various material such as plastic sheets, rods, PE parts or brass rods etc. Decks were made with 0.4mm masking tapes attached on plastic sheet. I also referred to Jim Baumann's recent work(Airfix HMS Mary Rose) especially for making sails. Riggings are not easy to comprehend, so I omitted many.
