  1. Eye candy, every single one of these photos! Even though I don’t plan to model this ship I learn so much here. Thank you for sharing your work! Cheers, Tom
  2. Thanks Mike, you are very kind! I have a feeling your Walrus build will be the better of the two! I do love the versatility of using Future (I actually use an equivalent called "Quickshine"), whether for a gloss coat, filling small gaps, as an adhesive, and to simulate glass. There's probably other applications out there! Cheers, Tom
  3. Another update, mostly concentrating on the rear mast: Getting a tripod mast to look aligned and vertical can be tricky, so I'm pleased with the result! Cheers, Tom
  4. I really like your work Chimp! The color and shape of the hull looks to be an excellent foundation for the rest of your build. Which wood filler did you use? Cheers, Tom
  5. It is my pleasure! I am still catching up, and I’ve been really enjoying the journey. The black was just a suggestion based on a cursory guess of the color, but perhaps brass might be a better match! In any case Vallejo paints are really good for brush painting touch-ups. Now back to my reading and saving photos for reference. Cheers, Tom
  6. Thank you very much! After working extensively with 1/350 photoetch, it’s easier (many parts are larger) and harder (there are more subassemblies)! Thank you! Cheers, Tom
  7. Just catching up here. Your work is truly marvelous! I am learning a great deal here, and admire your initiative and ingenuity. For example, the trennels on the deck look much more authentic than I’ve seen using other techniques. If I may offer a humble suggestion, a small drop of medium to high visosity CA applied with a toothpick then painted could be used to seal the gap in those links. In any case, I will be following your work with interest! Cheers, Tom
  8. Just saw your build and I am very impressed! Usually the macro is not a friend, especially in this scale, but the eye just gets drawn in to the detail and authentic look. Well done! Cheers, Tom
  9. Yves, I find it to be pretty useful: as a durable clear coat for adding decals, as a barrier for enamel weathering washes, to protect and enhance the clarity of transparent parts, to simulate clear glass in instrument panels, and most recently as an adhesive and sealant. Plus it can be thinned with ammonia. Haven’t tried it on floors yet! Cheers, Tom
