  1. Hi, Nigel. I just found your build log on the Red Dragon by Artesania Latina. What a gorgeous and beautiful model! It deserves to be in a museum. I, myself, have started the Red Dragon build and in about a month will be facing a problem you have so masterfully solved. It involves gluing the bulwarks to the deck, and especially at the bow where they attach to the bow bulkhead. They will be attaching at such a severe angle that I'm worried that the glue will not be able to permanently hold them. In your build, I believe you mentioned that you would be preforming them before attachment.
  2. Mercy! I have thought of using a Sharpie marker, but am also thinking of just using a No. 2 pencil. I think I will just leave the Sharpie alone. Thank you so much for your reply. You may have saved me from making a terrible mistake. Kind Regards, Stephen Walters
  3. I concur with Bruce and CPDDET. There is so much to learn about model ship building. It's a much better way to spend my most precious resource, time, than sitting in front of a tv and learning nothing. Stephen Walters
  4. Thank you so much for your reply. I'll take a look at your build log. In the meantime, can you tell me what your pencil hardness was. I'm thinking of using a pencil of no. 2 hardness. Do you think the lead would be too soft? Kind Regards, Stephen Walters
  5. This forum is awesome! Wish I had known about it years ago. After reading these kind replies, I have many techniques to try out. Many kind regards to those who replied, Stephen Walters
  6. Hi, Allen. Many, many thanks for defining the procedure. It is clear and concise. I will try it and will use a scalpel instead of an Xacto blade. In the meantime, if you have a few minutes, posting some photos showing the procedure would help immeasurably. Kind Regards, Stephen
  7. Wow, this is a live forum! Love that idea about the black thread, Sweep. Your Bounty deck looks awesome. The black tissue paper looks intriguing, Allen. Like Bruce indicated, I also would like to find a description of how to use tissue paper for edging. Kind Regards, Stephen
  8. Hi, Jim. Thank you so much for your quick and kind reply. Will consider edge marking with a pencil. Stephen Walters
  9. Good evening from Tulsa, Oklahoma. I'm new to the forum and new to modeling and just hope I ask questions that make some sense. I've just started my build of the Bluenose II by Artesania Latina. Eventually, I will be edge marking the deck planks to simulate deck tarring. A number of modelers I've talked to say stay away from edge marking with any pencil lead because it leaves indelible smudges after sanding. Others recommend marker pens. I've tried some marker pens but the ink weeps away from the edges onto the tops of small test planks I'm using. The test planks I'm using come from the
