Ahoy Shipmate,
With all the hoop la over photos over for the time being. I was able to do a few things on my little ship.
I removed the old siding and re-cut new sides. and installed the upper deck.
Thanks for visiting my build log.

Thanks Zoly & Geoff for visiting my build log. Yes it is tiny. When I bought it I didn't know what I was buying and I can't abandon a project. So when I get stumpt I shift gears for a while.

Ahoy Shipmates,
Another installment from the leetle sheep yard. I have cut three different pieces of wood trying to find a good siding for this model. Finaly I think I have a solution. I will double plank this ship with a veneer of sappli that I have. Before that happens I have allot of sanding to do. The instructions called for scoring the sides to simulate planking but that didn't sound good.
Thanks for visiting

Hi Lawrence,
Thank for your visit to my build log. I plan to use a filler putty to fill in the nicks and the old scribe lines. then use veneer planks to give her a more old ship look. I don't like using metal deck fitting if I don't have to.

Ahoy Ship Mates,
Back in the Ship Yard cracking the whip on my work gang. This will be a short up date just to illustrate the filler I'm using to prepare the ship for Her veneer coat of planks.

Thanks for visiting my build log.

Ahoy Mateys,

This will be a short update, no pun intended. I have been sanding between solidworks sessions, and now I'm just about ready to do my veneer planking. Smooth Sailing and Happy Modeling.

Ahoy Mateys,
Once again her is a short update from my ship yard. I first plank is very delicate and I am so clumsy I had to put the hand rail braces in to beef up the sides.
Thanks for your visit to my build log

Ahoy Shipmates,
Here is another update from my ship yard. I have been working on getting the hand rail installed. I'm using box wood that I have from another project. I used MINIWAX WOOD FINISH penetrating stain, Honey #272. To give it a dark contrasting color. enjoy.

Hi Mike

On my logo I had "Live, Listen and Learn'

We have some very experienced Model Ship builder on SOS willing to guide the less experienced Model ship builder.

I know of a very experienced Model Ship builder and he said to me he is still learning.

In another post I saw today was the word "friendships". Thais what model ship building is all about.

We love out hobby together.

Cheers
Geoff
