bluenose2 Posted April 11, 2018 Share #1 Posted April 11, 2018 I am building the 1/60 Corel HMB Endeavour. I have questions about the finishing of the hull. Karl Heinz Marquardt's book states that sheathing of the lower hull was done with pitch, tar and sulphur. Not painted white. Sheathing below the waterline was done with fir planking. Would this have covered up the paying so you only see fir? Sides were payed with varnish. Would this have been a flat finish or would it have a slight gloss? Wales were blackened with tar. Any help would be good. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
