  1. Hello Rodrigo

     

    I have laid the keel for this kit and am in the process of Building the Endeavour and A different A/L version of the Bounty (one with the two decks and single plank walnut hull. Would be interested in anything you can pass on about the Berlin as Like our friend I find the booklet good but mostly in Italian.

    When I start planking I will post a build log and looking at starting one for the bounty as I have not seen a log for this kit as yet. (it was purchased in the 90's and was a new revamp of the bounty at the time. Only ever saw 1 of them so they may be a rarer version from A/L.) The scale is 1/96 and the model is a reasonable size to work on.

  2. Hello

     

    I see the forum on bees wax for the rigging.

    I do not use wax but actually use Scandinavian timber oil.

    Which I spray in the entire boat after it is completed and let it dry for weeks before moving to the display area.

    I use a hand sprayer and generally give the rigging and ship and good soaking in the oil.

    I use this as the final sealer on my timber work (after it has been sealed with varnish and turpentine mix)

    This keeps my rigging nice and it also is handy when you need to get the dust off as it water tights the rigging and ship so you can wash the model with a fine mist to clear the dust away.

    I have had models with this oil on for over 20 years and the rigging is still fine and in good condition. Also the timber has a lovely grain finish with it
