Yup, no duel, but a healthy sharing of ideas and encouragement.

RIGGING PATTERN


Yes Will, an interchange of encouragement :thumbup: that has a certain doorstep ring to it. :eh:Eh ?

i have been leapfrog painting from one ship to another today.
i mix my own paint up,and by doing so there is no waste.A thimble full goes a long way
and being cheaper from any other mixture,makes the cost of kits easier to bear.

:cowboy: So there's a kind of balance Pards. :sst: there sure is.

Todays cool colour mix.
A small squeeze of White Acrylic +a hint of White Glue and water.
+a hint of the yellow + and a slight hint of brown.
This gave me a sandy desert colour for washing over deck and ship masts alike.
:coffee: Putting a cost to it if i must of 1 Penny !

:coffee: Enjoy yourself. BB

i made mention before on the fact that upon my first sample three mast ship of war,i stuck her mainmast on facing the wrong way... GULP! :( O',Dear!


Image

So i snapped the mast off at its base.
However now it would never stand upright and true.
Unless i fixed this silly mistake.

Image

A quick fix was needed.
Two bracket supports were cut from the sprue.

Image

They can be seen placed front and back of the mainmast,
and all was super glued into place very easily. :thumbup: Yip i can see it.

The stern mast was able to be glued into place after this repair.

Image

This is an A OK Repair,that anyone could do if the situation called for it.

Image

Lets take a closer, much lighter look shall we? :mrgreen: Ya! Go for it BB.

Image

:sst: it is kinda cool. :cowboy: Sure it is Pards!
:read: Entered in the Log. Another Big Time BB, Mistake!
:winky: Now that was two thin slices of fun.
:-D Do you think it's a handy thing to explain and show?
:eh: Not hardly,now everyone will notice the repair.
:coffee: Well WingNut,that was the purpose to show my first big hic-cup mistake and rectify it.
The Frigate has been partly rigged out with rope and sail.
:sst: Just go back a page to view that if you wish 2...

:coffee: Until next time stay safe and be happy. BB
