  1. Ageing Decks

    Hi O.C. - what I did on my current build was I soaked the planks in household bleach for about 40 minutes,then rinsed them,then laid them out to dry. They turned a light grey when dry. The planks I used were kit supplied 1mm thick walnut,so I don`t know how that would come out using other types of wood - haven`t tried it on anything other than walnut. It didn`t seem to hurt the wood,either. Mark

    Built "out of the box" from a Mamoli kit about 10 years ago. The only modification from the kit was real copper plates purchased from Model Expo.

    Thanks Junichi.The ship was built from the Corel kit about 15 years ago - my skills were not that good then.It is an excellent kit - wood & decorations are all excellent.The second gun deck is finished also.The hull is single planked so it takes a bit of time to make sure the bulkheads are all faired well.It was a very enjoyable build.
