Not sure Jim,I never used oil yet just poly.
Zoly, you may be missing a lot...While finishing model it is a personal taste and preference, try using oil next time. I can double what Joe said in his post, however, every one of us, has its own preference in Oils for use. At least with Linseed oil, you cannot go wrong. Once tried, you will not believe in the results. Not glossy, nice matte and it deeper colour with every coat. It is great protective material against moist as well. The only caveat that it takes more than few days to completely dry.
Happy oiling!

Both the Ontario and the Royal George were built by the same master shipwright Jonathan Coleman. He was a trained shipwright and served in the Royal yards in England. Both ships seem to have the same style and I would think the same construction. Both were armed transports built for lake service, but it seems the design of the R.G. has a slightly more bend towards a fighting ship a little lower profile and a third mast. Sterns and body plans look very close. I have CAD drawings of both ships in my archives than can be used for plank on frame or plank on bulkhead models. I am more than willing to share whatever research material and drawings I have


Wow. Can you please share the CAD files?

Also you should look around here ,they sell many plans,I am prety sure you find one what you looking for.
Hi zoly,

I think I see a new topic.
Why not a topic cad files for sale or share?
I think we have a lot of people in the group making cad drawings and putting in a lot of time and effort. Definately there are also a lot of people looking for these files and willing to pay a fee for using them to build a ship and dont have time ot knowledge to create their own cad drawing, which is also a hobby on its own.
