Marco Quaglia, Arcore, Monza e Brianza, Italy
In case you’ve ever wondered how they get the masts on those tall ships: Using “a lot plastic, wood, and resin,” Marco scratchbuilt an 18th-century masting machine and East Indiaman ship based on artwork by J.J. Beaujan and drawings by Fredrik Henrik af Chapman, respectively. Figures by Preiser people the scene. Marco spent about 800 hours on the 1/100 scale project.
Beautiful! Thanks for sharing Marco.
Amazing job! Would love to see more pics of this.
Fascinating! Thanks for opening an aspect of wind powered ships I never thought or read about. This model was beautifully executed.
Fantastic! Whose ship kit did you use?
Show stopper! Deserves a spot in the magazine for sure.
Simply incredible. Both the time required and the result. Great job, marco!
Extraordinary job. Really nice.
OMG! Very cool! Great work!
Great job on a very unique subject!
