La Flora

Started in early 2019, this ship stood on my shelf unfinished for almost 2 years at this point. I finally decided to complete the rigging and add the missing sails the last couple weeks. I think this might be my most elaborate rigging job yet, hope it shows!

 

La Flora is inspired by mid 18th century french frigates. First started but abandoned by Captain Green Hair, I purchased the parts from him and tried to stay close to the initial idea.

 

Sails are old curtains, coloured with coffee. Not a single reddish brown piece was used in this ship. Ratlines are glued.

 

Extra thanks to Sebeus, Kabel and Captain Green Hair for their quick feedback whenever needed!
