  1. Which model? Need help

    Amati's Vanguard is is very high quality, good instructions but is quite demanding. If you have two or three years to spend on it, the time is well worthwhile. After (I think) four years I have almost finished, You may find my build log in wooden ship kits forum if you're interested. Good luck rmc
  2. I am close to finishing Vanguard. I have found the brass etchings may be cleaned first by etching with the finest steel wool, then finally cleaned up with acetone - then use an undercoat before painting. For any blackened parts, after cleaning with steel wool/acetone, use Birchwood Casey Brass Black. Good luck rmc
