    Hello there!!! This model was completed in 1993 giving an end to a two-year project. Along with the great ship inside the heavy glass case you can also see a small wooden part of the deck with a metal cannon (from Artesania Latina), a Lord Nelson bust (I don't usually build figures, this one's an exception!!!), a Britanica Encyclopaedia volume published in 1858, a Cario & Fili hand gun bought in an antique shop and an authentic ink box coming from my grandpa's grandpa back in the 1820s...Now, let's get down to work with.........

    .............some general pictures
