Hello Zoltan

Just catching up on your very fine build, I see that you have did a very nice job on building all of your stair casings, they sure look good. Nice work on your channels, the planking looks great, one question though, I hope that you pined them also and not rely on the glue alone. The rigging can put a strain on these and cause all sorts of problems if one or two should break away, just a thought, ENJOY.

Regards Lawrence

Very nice Zoltan. How do you apply poly? By brush, airbrush or cotton cloth etc? Thanks.

Brian,
I just bought a satin wipe on poly at Bunnings. Not cheap though.
