'Bretagne' Balsa Wood Model

Recommended Posts

Hi 

This model has been made for myself. The work is great but not cheap. Think was about 200 euros but a nice model of my favourite ship which I have many good memories.  

I have also had condor express made by Harry and have one more lined up. 

 

He is almost like a real ship yard with a waiting time of months before building sometimes.

Arw we sure these are 'balsa wood' models? This sort of quality would normally use close grained woods such as lime/box, obechi or pear etc. Balsa waould never hold a decent edge.

How many hours work to produce a model of that quality.   I don’t know really, 20 probably and that’s almost certainly under calling it.

So .......... £9 / hr for work of that quality !!!  I couldn’t get somebody to sweep my drive for 2x that.

Looks lovely.
