Old Coasty Posted February 25, 2015 Share #1 Posted February 25, 2015 Hi everyone, I'm a newcomer having found you in a restoration search. I have 5 old ship models made before 1938 by my Grandfather. They need much help and I am trying to make them presentable, but retaining they original look. Rigging is no problem, as I have found replacement supplies that nearly match the original. Masts and yards are the problem. Replacements have been made, but how do I stain the new masts to match the old? Dyes or Stains? The decks, fittings and spars are all splotchy. Can I cover them with a flat or satin finish? They look reasonable when wet with water. Help!!! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
