Jnorton1946 Posted December 14, 2014 Share #1 Posted December 14, 2014 (edited) I am building a model of the Mystery, a Mount's Bay lugger that sailed from Cornwall to Australia in 1854-55. Apparently the hull was plated with zinc before this voyage. I would appreciate whatever advice MSW members can give me about how best to model zinc plating. Thanks.

We should all make peace with aging." Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
