Nice work Mustafa abi. :) I want to ask a question about the Tung oil. I'm from Turkey too. I also bought the Tung oil from the same brand.

(%100 Doğal Pruva Tung Yağı) But when I used it on some wood for trial, (maun - mahogany) I saw that it had a terrible bad smell and it didn't dry for months.

Not at all...

Did you dilute it?

I heard that I should dilute it with turpentine (terebentin).. %50 tung oil + % 50 turpentine..

If it has a bad smell, what will you do?:huh:

Thanks..

Thank you Onering. Nice to meet you. No i did not dilute it. I applied 3 coats of oil on the model and drying of each coat took around 3 days. Probably because humidity in the city (Kayseri) where i live in is quite low, drying did not take long time. I heard about diluting oil with turpentine too. I think this could solve your problem.

 

The model itself does not smell bad but the cotton cloth, that you use for applying oil, smells really bad if you keep it in the room. Wash or remove the cloth.

 

Have a good day,

Mustafa

Hi Mustafa,

Hello Mustafa,

I just discovered your build log, well done. Can you tell us what wood you used for the deck planking? I like the look of it in post #16.

 

Bruce

Thank you Bruce. I really don't know what wood it is. It is just wooden stick for stirring tea or coffee :)

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
