James H Posted July 3, 2019 Share #1 Posted July 3, 2019 Hi crew, In the past couple of years, I've promised to restart my Caldercraft Mary Rose and start other projects, but as some of you will know, I work as a regular contributor to a number of magazines. The work for those destroyed not only every spare hour I had, but also crippled any passion I had for my hobby (scale military aircraft). But as of last night, I quit! Finito Benito! That means that I can now dedicate time to wooden models again. Around October, I should be starting a long-term project for Amati, but until then I decided to dig this little gem out of the attic. I bought this Panart kit whilst in Italy about 15yrs ago, and made a start on it. This was as far as I got. I have a fondness for some of the legacy kits from Panart (I built the San Felipe about 15yrs ago), and a friend from my model shipwright club, Walter Coop (no longer with us), blackened the cannon and brass fittings for me on this project. I need to buy some replacement deck planks as the ones I fitted curled back and lifted, probably as the timber wasn't fully dry. Maybe I should use boxwood? The walnut exterior is gorgeous quality, so I should so something special. Where do I get boxwood strip in the UK? So, time to get this one started again.
