Thanks Jeff. The paint is Winsor & Newton Galeria Acrylic in the tube and the color is Crimson. I just thin it with water. 

 

Thanks Jim and for all the likes too.

The rudder has been completed and fitted to the hull. Don't worry Jim I can remove it! :D

The grappling hooks have been made. Just have to add the rope.

For the thole pins I chucked them in my dremel and used files and sandpaper marked the cap rail, drilled and glued them in place. Once dry they were painted.

Other than a little touch up of the paint the hull is now complete.

You're making this look easy Rusty.

 

 Hi Jeff, It's all smoke and mirrors!

All the credit goes to Chuck for an excellently thought out and produced kit.

It doesn't hurt I was able to spend over 50 hours in the shop last week! 

 

Thanks Chuck. I can't say enough about the job you did on this kit!

That's great to hear. I was looking at box, pear and cherry for the masts but it just didn't look right.

So, ahem, I'll "patently" ;) await the release of the rigging and masting kit.

 

Also thanks everyone for stopping by and all the likes!

Between attending the grandkids sporting events winter boredom sets in and I head to the shop. :)

Thanks Ben.

 

I'm thinking I'll make the sails and see how they come out.

If they look ok I'll try to temporarily hang them and see how that goes.

I'd like to do it with sails as I only have one other model that I did with sails.

 

Time will tell!

You guys should look at the mini pamphlet that David Antscherl wrote on making sails.  Using silkspan there is no sewing.  Although I would use individual panels at this scale.  I dont think I am going to add the sails but I may make one just to show one method for making them.
