USS Syren by Hipexec - Model Shipways - 1:64 - building as USS Argus


Recommended Posts

I'm putting some pictures of the longboat I built for my Surprise. It was a traditional plank on frame build of natural wood. This Dremel carving is very difficult for me and I'm running out of cutting bits small enough to get into the cracks and crevasses. Oh well...I'll just keep on plugging.

Your boat is coming along really well. Good work. 

 

I would start hand sanding at this point. If you use a rough grit, it will not take long to finish the hardest parts and then move down to 220 grit and the 400 grit to finish it off.

Thanks, Russ. I'll do as you suggest. :dancetl6:

That is coming along fantastic.

 

What paint did you use for the inside of the boat ?

It looks great, I have the back of my Syren that did not take the stain so well and may want to paint it that wood color.

I was about to ask the same thing.
