The frigate sculpture is virtually finished, but I did notice two things:
1. The square holes on the stern are now perfect. I did notice thought that the lines drawn underneath were a little light and worry that when the plastic pieces are made, that the detail will be lost. I've shown below an earlier sculpting which had good depth to the detail lines. Please make the detail lines on the stern on the latest wax sculpture just a little deeper (to match the earlier sculpting).
2. It could be an optical illusion, but it appears the middle mast is now perpendicular to the spine of the ship and needs to be twisted a little counterclockwise.
