  1. If you feel like you would like to - we would love to follow you on your HMS Flirt build, not only so we can see what you do - but more importantly for friendship, perhaps in some way we can share a friendly few moments while you build. Hope that came across ok? OC.
  2. I decided to paint the belts already fitted - they didn't turn out too bad, I have finished the other Two and found painting the belts easier when not glued down to the floor. OC.
  3. I may actually just paint the ones that are molded on - going by this pic off the net (not mine) OC.
  4. Thanks Ken, the ones already on the backs are molded on but not very good - I could have a go at replicating some with tamiya tape, might work. OC.
  5. Tell me about it, 21 can't possibly be worse ............."as he holds his breath and touches wood - crosses fingers" OC.
  6. Just sorted my pics out of my current stage - I have started working on the fabric bench seats in the cabin, these are plastic and are painted flat Red and Alum - I will place a few rows and leave the end sections in the up position (just for a bit of variety). The inner hull section is just leaned against the seat to show how it will go. OC.
  7. Evening all, so - more work has been done (you know me I don't like to rush things) anyway I finished off the cockpit by painting the seat cushions a nice mid Grey colour, then when Dry I fiited the decal seat belts (no fuss to these - not as good as pe ones) then I brushed on a few coats of flat clear to blend them in - then I fitted the pedals (Four part buddies they were). Then after painting and weathering these I gave the whole area another coat or Two of top coat, then the cockpit bulkhead was glued in. OC.
  8. Come on Ron, you know you have an audience. OC.
  9. I'm "abit" late to the party but it came to me - Isn't the Marry Rose similar? could you not use her plans to help with your hull planking? OC.
  10. One can really see the Inter- locking nature of it - wonderful stuff. OC.
  11. That is so nice of you mate - to be fair its not a bad kit. OC.
  12. Amazing work you have put so much effort into this amazing build you should be so Proud. Congratulations. OC.
  13. Keep an eye on your wood decks - mine had a habbit of trying to lift slightly around fittings - just a case of making sure its all pressed down. Looking really good. OC.
  14. Some people sell completed model boats/ships on Ebay, I have seen different prices ranging from a a Hundread right into the low Thousands, all depends what it is - what scale and how long it took to build (man hours still matter I think). Hope this helps. OC.
  15. I would also have said - the aging of the roofs/materials as timbers bend and sag with age (I have seen it myself with old/er buildings you should have seen the roof in our old 17th century cottage we used to live in, it would have made a good roller coaster. OC.
