  1. Hi, Below the waterline the hull would most likely have been paintet zink White. Decor coulors im afraid i can't assist you. Regards Søren
  2. Thanks a lot for the replies. Think the penny has dropped for me. Kind regards, Søren
  3. Hi, Thank you for the replies. Guess I just need to experiment with different threads to see what I can get out of it. Does anyone know the thickness of a 120/2 and size 60 polyester thread? simply impossible to find this information online. I'm planning to use Polyester thread (most likely Amann thread) as I like the finish. If you make a 3 strand rope and then use 3 of these ropes to make a thicker robe, would you then have to turn opposite direction or? Thanks in advance //Søren
  4. Hello, I am in the process of creating my own rope for the first time. for the purpose I have acquired myself a Planetary ropewalk - so far so good. The big question for me is: I need to make rope with a diameter: 0,25, 0,40, 0,50 and 0,75 mm. (and a few more). the first one (0,25mm) I can easily make with a 3 strand of my base thread, but then my trouble starts. To create a rope with a diameter of 0,50mm would you then take 3 strands of 0,25 rope and turn it oppisite direction (i.e. first 0,25mm is made a S-turned, then the 0,50 mm would be z-turned) or should they be turned in the same direction? To make the 0,40 mm my initial thought was making a 2 strand thread from my base thread to create a rope with a diameter of circa 0,18mm and then use 3 ropes to make the 0,40 robe. Would that be completely off? Finally how to make the thick ropes (0,75mm)? could the same base thread be used or do you need a thicker base thread? Thanks a lot in advance Søren
  5. Hi, If it's first planking i have previously used Revell plasto bodyfiller. Alternatively mantua have a line of woodfiller i have used for smaller gaps Regards, Soren
  6. Hi Adam, Thanks for your comment. Been considering a permanent marker or archive pen but a bit worried about the bleeding into the wood. I like a clean look with straight lines (why I decided to go with the treat on my current build). I will make some test samples and post the results here. //Soren
  7. Thanks a lot for the feedback. Think I will see how pencil works out. The model is panarts Royal caroline so Think the scale Would suite this method quite well Soren
  8. Hi, I'm about to start my next build and need some advice regarding deck planking. How have you made simulated caulking? On my current build I usted a thin tread however seems a bit 'over the top''. Seen several buildlogs Where the caulking Washington simulated with a pencil. Any good suggestions are most welcome Regards Soren
