  1. Plans can be purchased on this site: http://www.patscustom-models.com/boatplans.htm I also recommend following this thread which is excellent in details .. made by ndeconte. (In my opinion the best work I have seen.)
  2. I have the plans and the length of the mast is 490mm x 8mm in diameter.
  3. Although it is a headache for me to see how you work on this scale, I must say that it is an excellent construction!
  4. You applied primer-sealer first? That could be one cause for blistering.
  5. I was just reading about this on Chuck's topic and he gives a good explanation about it on page 15.
  6. You can use this option, with diluted paint instead of going horizontally, go vertical and drying a little with a cloth. The process is slow but with good results.
  7. My friend said "Here is why I can't go with cloak button. This is an antique Victorian cloak button. Note the elaborate design around the edges and the overall thickness of the metal. This is more like a brooch, an ornamental jewellery piece, and I suspect they were made more from semi precious/ precious metals and stones."
  8. This morning I was chatting with a curator of the Museum and I am waiting for results, probably the piece will be sent to the museum for better analysis..another thing is not a button from a cloak for sure.
  9. It's incredible how some people react regardless of the situation we live in. I have received a package from Syren in a week and the waiting time does not affect me ... but some drown in a glass of water...
  10. Thank you gentlemen, just contact the National Museums Scotland..
  11. A friend in Scotland, Brora specifically, walking along the beach discovered this piece, from what he told me it is made of bronze and it would seem to be the handle of a closet or similar. The design is a nautilus shell among what I believe is a collection of shells. What else could it be off? The obverse shows what I believe is where it was attached to a drawer or similar. One faint possibility is a French sloop, Le Prince Charles Stewart, an ex Royal Navy ship the Hazard which had been captured in Montrose and renamed. It was carrying gold for the Jacobites from France. It was intercepted by the Sheerness and chased into the Kyle of Tongue where it ran aground. Someone may have seen something similar and can help me identify this piece. I will be grateful in advance ...
