This project is still underway and is being completed to the best of my historical knowledge. The fleet is that of James IV in 1511 at the relatively short but significant apex of the Scottish Navy. Notably the Flagship, the Michael, popularly known as the Great Michael was one the world's largest ships at the time at 1000 tons burden. When completed I will make a single or possibly multiple videos on the fleet.

Here is a list of all the vessels ordered as a line of battle and showing their level of completion:

25 Vessels

    They look very realistic.
    Thanks, defiantly what I'm going for. Particularly appreciated form you as well, definitely didn't plan all of the ships out using the method from your 'how to build a ship' series!
