Hello Kurt , after much thinking taking into account my not so good eyesight these days , I have taken your advice to go for Model Shipways "Glad Tidings " kit . I would like to make it into a working model using as much deck furniture as practical . I also want to double plank the hull using 0.5 mm planking to finish off . My intention is to make it a complete wood model (no painting) . I would value your opinion regarding which different woods to use for the Hull , Decking , Trims , cabins etc that will complement each other to make a truly class finished kit !!
Thanks for your reply Kurt and I understand what you say . I do like Bob Filipowskis model too , it is different . I don't know if youre familiar with a US website called "Down East Replicas" a guy called Don Carter makes absolutely beautiful large scale replica models of 19th century working and sail boats . He has a model of the Glad Tidings just done in various woods (looks fantastic) .
All the best .
