Week 8

This week’s work saw the completion of the weathering effects on the hull and bulwarks using techniques as described last week, and the beginning of fine detail on the stern.

I started with the compass, turning it on the lathe using PVC rod. The steps leading down to the gun deck were constructed from American walnut, this wood being of both a very fine grain and an appropriate colour.

The airbrush I described in the last update has been used extensively, as this time I am texturing and shading areas not only to weather sections, but also to make the model look as realistic as possible in all detail.


I am hoping to have all components on the deck completed by the end of the week.

  1. Mike,
    moving ahead at a steady rate, great detail coming together, looking forward to the images with all the components added to the deck.
