    • Bob, I like the colours you have chosen for her.

      Nice work with applying the paint, the finish looks smooth.

      • Bob,

        The painted hull really enhances her nice lines!

        • Pete, Carl, Dave, Greg, and Scott, thanks for your posts, much appreciated.

          The colors are basically those shown in the instruction book, Model Expo warm white and hull red. The

          cabin roof is Model Master neutral gray and the toe rails, hatch and hatch sliding rails are all

          Model Master rust.

          • I have talked myself out of making the model sea. I have done several dioramas with model

            seas in various scales but I can just see this one growing way over sized if I let it

            go. To begin with a model sea does not look good if it is too close to the hull, you need

            a bit of sea surface showing all around. That alone makes for a much bigger case. Then in all but

            close hauled you need room for the boom to swing and with any heel at all the mast head

            swings out for more case room needed. Added to that I would need room below the sea's

            surface for the centerboard to hang down. I know how these things work, the case grows

            and grows until you have a monster (please don't ask how I know this).

            • BTW, I still have not received the plan sheet, just one more reason to scatchbuild where you

              never have to depend on someone else to supply something you need or want.

              • Bob, The colors look really good.

                Sorry to read of the ongoing disappointment trying to get the plans.

                • Thanks Bill.

                  For those of you who are not familiar with nautical terms, I don't know how else to do it

                  but to call items by their proper names. If you do not understand a term please ask your

                  questions here and I will attempt to explain in landsman terms.

                  I have been working on a lot of smaller details.



                  I have added the tiller atop the rudder pin. At the stern I have added the traveler and

                  it's block, that will control the boom. At the bow I added the trail boards but instead

                  of cutting out the paper scrolls and gluing them in place, I made them into decals.

                  I completed the bowsprit and chain plates and added the kit cleats. I am just in the start stage of making the mast, it needs a lot more work.

                    • I just marvel at how beautiful your model is. The colors are very classy.

                      • Bob,

                        She's really coming together, and the details are bringing it all together.

                        On the subject of sailing, yesterday was going to be my first sail of the season. The winds were 10-15 knots with gusts of 30.

                        Too much for my wife, so we went for a swim.

                            • Greg, Mike, Scott, Pete, and Rich, thanks for your comments, I do appreciate them.

                              I am working on the mast, boom, and gaff but the big news is that I received an email today

                              telling me that the plan sheet has been shipped to me.

                              I will believe it when I see it.

                              Bob
