Thanks, guys!

Mustafa: Glue won,t stick to polyurethane or tung oil. I scrape off the finish to glue, then touch up the area with a little poly and a small brush. Or wait to apply the poly until after you glue.

After a lot of hand wringing I decided to go with traditional brass pedestals mounted on a walnut board for my display stand. I ran into a little problem in that my keel is a little off of dead vertical and when I mounted the model there was a definite, noticeable dip to starboard. I took the pedestals off and beveled their bases a bit until the model sat straight. Now I can begin rigging! If you look closely you can see the bevels (the arrows point them out) but I don't think the casual observer would notice unless I told them stand1.JPG stand2.JPG stand3.JPG ped1.JPG ped2.JPG
