  1. Swan-Morton (non sterilized) carton of 100 will last a VERY long time. I've had no problems using them in an X-acto holder. If there is any question of sharpness after some usage, replace the blade. Maury
  2. Interesting. Soaking (in water?) seems to be an important part of the process. I tend to crush the ends of bamboo when drawing through a Byrnes draw plate. Maybe using a "parallel pliers" will help that. Maury
  3. Thimble vs Bullseye

    The use of bulleyes vs. deadeyes on shrouds is a subject of my current build. https://modelshipworld.com/index.php?/topic/13002-anchor-hoy-by-maurys-pof-harbor-craft-c-1825-148/&page=14 Have you run across any detail in the lashing of the bulleyes? Maury
  4. I tried adding pigment and it was never the same consistency. Basic food dyes work great. A little red and green makes dark brown. Maury
  5. Finished 004

    Beautiful! Maury

    Meredith, I love your treatment of the longboat. What color (mixture) red did you use? Maury

    Thanks Bob. It was an unexpected honor to have Chuck ask to use the pics. Maury
