Second layer of hull planking from the water line up.  Drilled out hundreds of tiny holes to simulate tree nails on planks.  Stained all topside a light oak.  Varnished with satin poly, one coat to seal.  Installed Wales and painted black.  Painted waterline and below, white (they used Tallow, which was a yellow/white.  I like the contrast of white/white flat.  Next will come various moldings on hull above cannon ports. Color will be brought into those moldings with red, green, white and black.  She is coming along well.  Dennis

thank you sir,  your HMS Victory Tug, is that a paper model?  I have a battleship model that is paper, I just started before this model I'm working on. That paper model looks very daunting, what have been your experiences? Can you give any advice?  Tks, Dennis

EEERRR, sorry  - you missed the comma  {-) , its HMS Victory and a vacuum hull of a tug, Victory is partially built using all the parts of the Airfix Kit but until I get sufficient mojo to carry on she is currently in dry dock - no internal decks fitted but the main gun deck is set with crew and guns ready to go in.

Color is coming on with various hull moldings, rather striking.. though I trust the color accuracy, probably was not that bright.  I will be toning it down some with a overcoat of satin varnish to seal.  Dennis

Looking great. As for colors, the white could have been that white, but the red possible not. After a year or two at sea (not uncommon journey lengths), I wonder how bad the paintwork would have been.

Great question and one that I have asked.  The kit manuf. states that the colors may appear too bright and that I need to tone them down with washes, etc.  My intent was to seal with a statin varnish overbrush, which seems to tone things down a bit. But, will also lock in that intial brightness.  A thin "grey" wash may be the trick.  Yes, red is notorious for fading quickly in the elements and yes, the white on the hull is waaay too bright for the tallow that was used... would be more like a yellow and only clean at the waterline while underway due to friction rub..... still thinking on this matter and I always welcome the good inputs from you dear folks.  Dennis

Howdy folks,  well... time has been spent on internal and outside details. Such as: completing the Knights, Belfry, Pumps, Ladders, Catheads, Chesstrees, Channels and Pinrails.  I softened the bright colors with a over-wash of thinned down light sea grey.  I think she looks better now.  Painted the Rudder as well.  Next will be the ships boat.  That should prove a challenge at this scale.  I will be using the "lift" method, shaping and hollowing out the inside, then installing ribs, etc.  At least, that is how its supposed to go. Then its on to "Masting and Rigging"... the fun part.  Dennis
