First of all I have to thank all of you for the great appreciations and appraisals, then . . .

A couple of days ago I applied a coat of oil for wood, to nourish the wood itself and highlight its colors. So I had to wait a couple of days for the oil to be completely absorbed by the wood and leave dry the model surfaces. Now the model can be manipulated again and I am providing the tree nailing of the wales and vertical reinforcements.

Below is a review of model images taken this morning in natural light. Good vision. Jack.

A little work with toothpicks to simulate wood nails on the wales and on the vertical reinforcements . . .

Saturday 20 July 2019

In these days with the weather becoming warmer and hot, I worked around some preparatory activitoes to paint the quickwork. The varnish, according to the images of the model shown at the beginning of this log, will be black.

In order to apply the black (acrylic) paint it's necessary, however, to mask the border area which must remain wood-colored. A couple of days ago I applied a coat of matt acrylic from the lower wale to the keel, to prepare with a base coat the area to be colored. Before proceeding with the masking and painting I decided to wait a few days to make sure that the initial coat of paint is well dry and perfectly anchored to the wood.

So, as alternative task, I started to prepare the two platforms that are positioned almost at the top of the mainmast and foremast.
The material provided by the kit, this time, proved to be really good. All the pieces are laser pre-cut and are of absolute precision. Their assembly, although to be carried out with the utmost care given the fragility of some pieces, did not create any kind of problems.

The only aspect to be emphasized is that it's practically impossible, given the fragility of many pieces, to remove the burned wood. a side effect of the laser cut. For this reason the two platforms will be colored instead of left in natural wood color: their nature as pre-cut laser pieces would be too obvious and so on.
My only problem (just to speak): the choice of the color.

For today there are no images but they will arrive soon. Salutoni, Jack.
