I had to mix some paint in order to get this color. It’s called Chestnut Brown and I put just a drop of black in it.
Yeah… That did the trick with the Windows.
I’m finally getting around to attaching the Rudder. I’ve been delaying it until I finished most of the “on my lap” parts. Which means, I would work on it on my lap.
I’m going to first take the thickness of the Rudder down a bit… Perhaps by 3/4 of its size to start before attaching the Rudder Pintles.
I can’t really put the Gudgeons on the Stempost beforehand.
I’m making these Pintles out of this laser cut sheet of brass. Then I stuck a #18 Wire in there to act as the Pin that will fit in the Gudgeons that glue into the Stern Post.
Just drilled out these holes for the Posts for the Hatch Deck Handrails.
Bending these 2 Walnut 1x3mm for the after Handrails.
As before with bending, I soaked them in Ammonia + Water for a couple of hours.
I had to use some flexible beechwood which I cut down to approximately 1x3mm
I swear this Flexible Beechwood works great for this sort of application.
The only drawback is that it’s really expensive. The only source I could find for it was from Modelers Central and I’d say just for a couple of strips it cost me about $30 bucks!
I made these Ladder Steps from the provided angled Walnut stock the kit provided.
Would you believe that I had just enough of that angled wood to finish the job?!?!… I’m talking just barely!
