Santa Maria by mtbediz - handmade kit by a friend


Recommended Posts

Hull planking has been finally completed :) it took more than 2 months because besides i had limited time to work on, i only used white carpenter glue (needed to wait for drying of glue) and the widht of the strips were only 3 mm which means i had to prepare (cutting, tapering, soaking, bending) a lot of strips before install them. Time to go up to the deck now :)

I think it looks great! But, when you say the model was 'prepared by your friend', do you mean that he designed it? And what kind of wood is that on the hull planking? It's very pretty.

Hi Richie, no he didn't design the model. He has a plan of the ship and he just cut bulkheads, false keel and decks according to that plan. The wood that i used in hull planking is magohany.

Tung oil application on the decks. Process is like this; I apply tung oil by a paintbrush to the deck surface, to help for penetration of the oil, i sand the surface by No:1000 sandpaper and finally, i clean residue of oil by a piece of cotton fabric. I repeated this process 3 times after oil dried. Result was very nice, i got a quite smooth surface and a natural look. Tung oil is a good wood protector also.
