  1. Steven This is what I like about this group!!!! Really interesting subject I’m seated here following your log
  2. It is time to come Back...... In the meantime I was trying to figure it out how the finishing could be since no one has ever seen this ship 🙃 After so many attempts finally I made this drawing...... which it adjusts in many ways to what we can find from that age and location..... Those ships did not have a lot of decorations Not big color production other than white ( comes from lime) is known The drawing is pretty much accepted by the archeologists due its simplicity. So I decided to go for it....... First the extra height to build the “fences” Then... the second plank layer...... lets remember So since those plank were made mainly of pine.... I took a tropical wood name Chingale, because the color and appearance...... Some “ornament” and starting the third plank layer...... this one was used more like a wale in those ships..... And finally with the third plank layer is going to look like this, with some other ornaments to install..... Yet.... more to come. I liked so I’ll start the starboard side........
  3. This is the happiest and the saddest parta of the hobby……. the happiest…. Because the satisfaction of a really well executed job!!! And is finished the saddest….. because is like at the end you are feeling like empty. Is like…..NOW WHAT? after you have done a big effort and a hard job is nothing els to do CONGRATS BOLIN. Magnificent job!!!

  6. As some of you know me...... let you guess...... I did not like it. The final result was not that good. Mono color and it did not look natural. The real thing was bamboo slices...... So I decided to go for a new tryout.... Lighter and thinner cardboard.... Some vinyl paint.... Cut it in 1 mm..... Then...... Definitely looks better and.......... Look at the bamboo 1:54 scale...😁....... I finally found the way to simulate the bamboo...... 1. Some brochettes bamboo sticks 2. Cut in half 3. With a 11 knife simulate the “knots” and...... just sharpies..... Black g\for the knots Orange.... and the yellow will “dissolve” the Orange.... this the final result For the interior “sandwich” the real thing use to be either bamboo sheath or some kind of natural fiber..... so I decided to use Raffia fiber.... Make the sandwich... bamboo..... Regards.....😇 And this is the result....
  7. Some other fittings I am working on are the “tents” that I’ll put on the deck. According with some photos..... Some other fittings I am working on are the “tents” that I’ll put on the deck. According with some photos..... Looks that these elements are built with some kind of wicker..... also according with Nick in this particularly zone of China this wicker has the pattern that the picture has. Instead of “plane weave”.... Should be “twill wave”...... I just found some “old style” envelopes cut the 2 mm strips and ...... this is the result....... Making progress!!!
