1759 Royal Louis - Heller
This is the kit I have been working on for the last 8 months, I have heavily improvised it regards to parts and material, it should be finished by the end of the month.

After 8 Months of loving this build, heavily improvising and pushing my capabilities, my 1759 ROYAL LOUIS - HELLER 1/200 is FINISHED.

5 months of building the kit and rigging her up and 3 months to Hand sewn 20 sails and add reef lines, Bowlines and Braces, I can honestly say I feel burnt out, strained but very happy.

It may not be perfect or historically accurate but I have pushed my own capabilities to the max, I still have a lot to perfect and learn, if I can.

But for now I can sit bk and enjoy her as I hope some of you will.

All the best and #staysafe

Beautiful Rab. What are the dimensions roughly? It looks big.

This is roughly a smaller scale kit.
The Dimensions are as follows:

Length 50cm (Stern to tip of Bowsprit mast)
Height 46cm (including stand)
Width 21cm ( at widest point which is the Main mast Topsail yard)

Heller Scale is 1/200.

There is only 1 other Company that I know of that makes a Replica of this ship and that is Mamoli (Wooden kit) scale 1:90 which is considerably larger(double the size) and considerably a lot more money to buy if you can manage to find the kit which is quite scarce too.

Bought myself a pretty decent 61-key keyboard the other week. I’m not a natural by any stretch of the imagination, but slowly learning the basics and chords.

Just spent the last few hours learning the keyboard parts from Van Halen’s Jump. :laughing:
