  1. Having coppered one ship i most probabely will never cover another one. Its interesting that Greg Herbert does not copper his model so ill follow his lead.
  2. I look forwar to each of his new videos. I just discovered another one that i have started following and will post in due cource.
  3. https://youtu.be/Q02EG5y4bBk excellent video on the actual construction of real life frames
  4. I painted all the skirtketting off the model before sticking. I tend to do this with all the pieces that are not left in natural wood.
  5. This is the inside of the bulwark painted red. Thats what i was referring to.
  6. I assume you are not going to paint the inside red. Just a point that it is better to paint the inside before sticking if ypu are going to paint. The reason is that it is difficult but not impossible to paint it after and get a clean line between the natural wood finish and the painted finish.
  7. Excellent job. You will have fun trying to figuer out the deck furniture. You can follow the parts supplied by the model or do like me and try to figure it out your self. Unfornunately no one knows exactly how the deck was laid out as there are no definative plans. Even the paintings are not not necessarily accurate. Since i was building two models i have two different layouts. Your model looks fantastic.
