Hi All,
Made some good progress this weekend.
Fitted the wales as per the instructions.
While the glue was drying, I drilled & painted the 23 Lanterns. I washed in thinners to remove any grease etc. and then airbrushed with etch primer.
I have painted the grates earlier but the paint was coming off so whilst the airbrush was out I gave them a new coat as well.
Next time, I'll sand & stain the planking.
Kind regards,
Garth

Hi Phil W.
Thanks for looking in and for the kind word.

A small update today.
I stained planking Ebony using an alcohol based wood stain. I will more than likely paint the outer hull black once all the assembly is done.
The main reason for the stain is to fill all the crevices and provide an undercoat for the paint.
It seems a shame to cover up all that lovely walnut grain.Crying
Kind regards,
Garth

It does seem a shame, but it is going to look a stunner when finished.

Great job Garth, she's looking good. It's always a shame to cover up walnut but sacrifices have to be made for the greater good.

Hi All,
I have been a little concerned about damaging the guns protruding from the hull later in the build when the next planking must be applied. Looking ahead in the instructions, there doesn’t seem to be any reason not to fit them now.
So, jumping ahead a little, I fitted a couple more rows essentially completing the bow and upper deck gun ports. I stepped the planks at the stern, so I can continue the planking as per the instructions. (Hope this works???)Blink
Once fitted, they were sanded and given another coat of Ebony stain.
Next is fitting the guns, I'm really looking forward to thatBigGrin
Kind regards,
Garth
