Another quick update as the ship project is now rolling on. The sails are finished, painted and attached to the now painted hull. I added a staircase to the fo'castle and a crows nest to the main sail. The painting was completed in a couple of sessions using Spice Red emulsion for the red and the sails weathered with some home made washes that gave the sheets that salty spray look, some little stanchions were made from matchsticks to tie the rigging to the masts.
I still need to make the ships wheel and the rudder, more rigging and other bits and pieces like netting etc but it's coming on nicely
Hope you enjoy
