HMS Saturn leaves port to join Admiral Parker!

Just finished rigging the 74 gun HMS Saturn.
After looking at the ships I have finished I have decided to wait to finish the waves on the base until I have most (if not all) of the ships done.  The wave patterns on each of the ships so far has varied dramatically.  So I think I will try to do them in large groups to get a more consistant look.  I do want some variation, but not as much as I am getting.  I love how these Langton ships turn out, and I am getting faster at doing the rigging.  6 down, 40 to go.

The first of the ships of the line sets sail

The HMS Ramilles emerges from final fitting on its shakedown cruise.
HMS Ramilles, 74 gun ship of the line, is the first of the ships in Parkers squadron to be finished.  Rigging took most of the day today.  The Saturn is ready to be rigged next.
