17th Century 64-Guns British Ship Model by Den Holmes

Neatorama reader Den Holmes who made the nifty Noah's Ark diorama, just sent this one in: a super awesome 17th-century 64-gun British ship model.

The model is 100% SCRATCH BUILT, MADE OUT OF CHESTNUT WOOD, CUSTOM MADE, 1-OF-A-KIND... The scale of this ship is 1/96 so it would be 168' long x 42' wide, and draws 21' of water. The model is 27" long x 12" wide, and 25" high mid-ship. And has 5 different deck levels, plank-on-frame construction. Total work hours on the model, 1,175, and about 10,000 pieces. About 61' of rigging.

Holy Camoly! 10,000 pieces! And if you work 8 hours a day on it, you'd have to spend 147 days to complete the work.

Link - Thanks Den!
