  1. Thanks Jeff. I have access to a wide format printer at work. I had to go in Monday to check on roof leaks so was able to get them printed on some butcher paper for starters. Waiting for the bosses approval and an excuse to go back in (we are not considered an "essential" business) then I'll print on something more durable. We have some white vinyl that might work or I'll run it through the laminator. First things first, have to convince Better half we have a place to put this once it's complete. I may have to scale down to 1/72. That will be a disappointment. Sam
  2. The two tone should look nice when your done. Is that a Burns table saw I see in the pictures back when you were milling? If so I am soooo jealous. Sam
  3. Lets call this my "soft opening" of my build for the Winchelsea. I have another build to finish so it will be a few weeks before I break ground officially. There is also going to be some ...... discussion.....with Better Half about the size of this build. 😀 I like the 1/4" scale as it is close enough to the Enterprise build one will get a comparison. That being said, since I want to build this rigged rather than Admiralty, there is a possibility I will be scaling down to 1/72. Time will tell, I am not concerned about it at the moment. One question, I saw somewhere and I do not recall whe
  4. Looking good Dennis! I have never been good with paint myself, I get more on me than the project!!! and I always have to touch it to see if it is dry, gets me in trouble at work sometimes..... Sam
  5. I am looking for some guidance/advise for a possible sail plan for my Enterprise build. I am finally, after 10+ years, getting to the point I can think about sails. What would some likely sail usages be for a moderate wind no more than say 45º off either side of the stern? Am I making sense? I dont want to put all the sails up, most will be furled, I amt hinking two or three. Any ideas? Thanks, Sam
  6. Tops look good J. I hate it when metal will not take a patina! That TP solution looks , um... uncomfortable. Sam
  7. Ron, So if you brushed a very thin coat of clear over both the bare wood and the masking at the same time that might stop the bleed. I am a fan of shellac, maybe a 1/2 pound or one pound cut in this instance. Sam
  8. Thanks everyone and to all who hit the Like button. Carl, agree, its not quite as bad as the picture makes it look, the angle I shot from exaggerates it, but it is a bit short. Then again, I could always put the taller hands on that side..... Mark, I did something similar, rather than white glue I used artist matte medium. The thing I am really struggling with at the moment is getting the horses to hang straight for some reason. My Fore Top Yard is better, but still some flaws. Like Carl said, I have plenty of time to re-re-redo things, however what I dont have is rope to
