This is not one of my miniature projects, but one that was posted in hms_surprise
and in the Aubrey-Maturin Appreciation Society on Facebook. It is James Choi's model of the Surprise
, and it's just wonderful! Look at it! It will fill you with glee. It's just marvelous.
Sigh, it fills me with glee AND with envy. I want to make it too! I wish I was making it. However, I don't think I would enjoy the rigging at all, and I would also possibly get bored making dozens of the same things over and over, like all the guns. Maybe not though. But it would also be hard for me to work at that small scale. Hmm. Still, oh, it's very tempting. Also, oddly enough, I don't really care to have the finished product of a ship. I just want the process of making it. What I really need to make is a 1:12 ship with no rigging. Hmm... Maybe a ship made out of lots and lots of roomboxes that fit together like a puzzle. I don't know what it is that I want, but I WANT IT.
Edit: Aww, look at this picture
and caption particularly. It will give you heartbubbles.
