Candle and holder now painted.
How about some LEDs for a real light effect?

That's it Bob - be unpredictable.
I know that Bob does buy model aircraft, but he rarely show them.

As a beginner 'Admiral' Zak is in charge of his fleet.
At this build rate, Britain and Zak's navy is due to have the most number of ships in any nations navy, by the end of 2021.
Not sure if the technology of the period relates to those of nowadays, but numbers count!

Amazing what you can find out on the internet -- she was the ship that brought news about Trafalgar and Nelsons death back to England.
Now how many ships do you have in your fleet at the moment  ::) ::) ::) ::)
When I finish the 6 schooners it will be 17.
HMS Victory next.

These are two Schooners. They are white metal kits, approximately 4cm long. the second picture compares them with a frigate and a brig.
More work is needed on the sails.
Ratlines are home made.
Rigging is fine thread.

The frigates were used for quick delivery of messages, these are of the 10 gun variety, such as HMS Adonis.
Perhaps the most famous schooner was HMS Pickle.
Go on then tell me why.

Yes but the nepenthes in Bornio can eat things the size of a rat - and my sarracenia are about 12 inches tall.
Scary - the stuff of nightmares, I never did like "The Day of the Triffids".

Forgot to say --sarracenia, nepenthes and dionaea - that's carnivorous plants to you and you can't eat them either hohohohho
I have a friend who is into carnivorous plants, he once took me up the NYM to see some sundews, I was a little underwhelmed, they were tiny.
