Been working on this for approx. 10 months, this is the progression as of today. Never expected to post these so they're not very detailed or high quality.

Flags are next then some final deck features, barrels, buckets here and there. Sure don't need to add much, so much already there!

That looks very nice.

 

What technique did you use to weather the copper plates? They look great.

I used equal parts: plain white vinegar, household ammonia, table salt, lemon juice. I got this method and recipe from: www.wikihow.com/Age-Copper. There are quite a few different ways to age copper, this one worked well for me. Tape off everything but the copper, brush on the mixture, cover and let sit over-night. If not dark enough, repeat process, then clean with window cleaner. Hope it works for you.
