Thanks, Ron.

I'm not far from finishing treatment of my model, so I'm looking around for inspiration ... and I like a lot yours, with its beautiful satin effect! A few Italian modellers adviced me to try with linseed oil (a mixture: 50% oil and 50% turpentine, or white spirit) and part of them preferred raw oil (most of them painters), whereas another part  uses cooked oil. I tried both oils and the final finish appears the same; only, raw oil dries in a longer time. Which of them have you used?

Cheers

Alex

Hi Ron...thanks for your comments..... If it's where I think your talking about, just under the bowsprit, I've used a total of 8, 5mm deadeyes.,

2 set of 2 on each side.they tie to the bowsprit and tie off to eyebolts on the bow of the ship. I hope that helps .

Hey Ron

Great to see you keeping going. The masts and spars will really transfrom the model - a whole other dimension. When others said to me "Now the fun begins" I doubted it but they were right. Masts and rigging turned out to be my favourite part mostly because each spar and line turned the model into something new. Enjoy - it's looking really good.

 

cheers

Alistair
