All the gold work on the ships is gold leaf, the Soliel Royal (the big Blue one next to the clipper ship) has 40 worth of gold leaf on it and I recon it's needs the same again before its finished. I recon I've got another 18 months work on that one.

I've built a few polystyrene ships, I'm in awe of a genuine master. Gorgeous.

I would hardly call myself a master but thanks for the kind comments.

Hi all a few more old pics of my stuff. Sold this for 250 the kits cost about 120 quid and with the extra detail I probably spent another 50 then it took about 3 months to build.http://i67.tinypic.com/1433y4g.jpg
