Default Re: Some Weekend Shipwrighting Of A Sort...

I thank ya JT, she ain't looking too shabby thusfar.
Aye, them lovely old WWI stringbags are less of a problem in the rigging thing...not to say they haven't caused me a few frowning moments here and there when doing them mind you

Well a bit of base slinging together as it were.
3/4" MDF, topped off with some 1/16" thick teak strips glued down and secured with brass pins. Surround is 1/8" teak glued and pinned then the lot sanded the hell out off to level it up and make smooth.



Then came the inevitable stain/wax treatment times 3 and a goodly dose of elbow grease buffing up.





And lastly...some DIY photo-etch farting about.







A couple of wood turnings to get sorted for the model supports and some feet to find for the baseboard.
Probably make a display case up in due course but we nearly done!

Go easy out there all.
