Reaper's Dark Maiden

I had the privilege of working, again, from Tim's designs on the revised Dark Maiden. It was quite a lengthy project with lots of little wooden ship fiddly bits. I think I enjoyed making the anchor the most.

After working extensively on the pieces for about two months I was unable to get any photos of the assembled model because the parts were to heavy for blu-tac to hold it together. Fortunately the mold worked fine because I got the bits back in a small bag afterwards.

It's a little disheartening to see something you've spent so much time working on returned in pieces but after seeing Martin's paint job it was well worth it.
