Just catching up on your latest post Donnie. The planking has come up really nice and I do hope you treenail it.

G'day Donnie
Havta agree with Brian. Brilliant work on the planking. I have done the same thing about treenails as you are planning many times. I recond if it works and looks good, it's not cheating, it's smart!

Hi Donnie,

On my Sovereign of The Seas 1637 model the scale was 1:78 and thus treenails were rather small and difficult to make. I decided to simulate them in the following way. I set a pair of drafting dividers with two metal points at a distance needed to make two holes in the plank end look like treenails. Gently pressing the points into the plank makes the holes. I then used a mechanical pencil with a 5B lead sharpened to a point to darken the holes. You twirl the lead point in each hole and it darkens it enough to simulate a treenail. Then I rubbed the planking with 0000 steel wool to remove any imperfections surrounding the holes.

They were darkened just enough to simulate treenails that had been exposed to seawater and sunlight without looking overbearing.

Hope that helps.
Bill

Latest:
False treenails
Made holes with 1mm bit
Sanded 1000 grit
wipe dust off dry towel.
painted with Polyurethane satin no gloss.
sanded again with 1000 grit
painted with Polyurethane satin no gloss.

The gloss that you see is that I just finished painting. When dry, boards look dull

Love the look of the trennals Donnie. They look very realistic.
