Hallo Alexander,Greetings, dear Uve, I started working on a new project, I'll try to build a brig. For the moment I'm working on the hull. I dont have much to show right now, I'll make some more and post on the work accomplished .
My best regards, Alexander .
My old brain is confused by what you talk about as a plastic bag. Looking at what you are cutting it looks more like a report cover by how flat it appears to be. I think that the caulking width/thickness depends upon the scale of the model. Thanks for your clarification. Your work looks very well done and precise. Good job. PT-2I used plastic film for calking. I used this method when i was building "Carolina". All that one needs for this can be found in any stationary shop.
Plastic bag for paper (they can be found in different colors and thickness) and two sides adhesive duct tape. I
use the balck side of the plastic bag. I put the duct tape on plastic fim and cut it in stripes according to the thickness of the batten,
it can be made with a small margin, then I separate
protective paper from the strip and stick on the end of the batten, the allowances are cut off with the knife, - it's cutting off nicely.
Here are several photos, maybe they can be of use to somebody. If you have any questions - it would be my pleasure to help.

I too greatly like this model with the harmonious wood tones, clean detailing, and very well done sails set in the wind. Eye candy to be savored. Rich (PT-2)At this point my work on the “SPERWER” has come to an end.
I really like this ship, and I have to say that I have really enjoyed working on it.
I would like to express my gratitude to my friends and colleagues, who showed interest in my work, for your reviews and comments and advices, that helped me a lot in my work.
My best regards, Alexander.
Greetings , dear tonphil1960 .Excellent clean work. I'm interested in what kind of wood finishes you used on it. Oil ? Wax ? just one or several finishes ?
