Thanks Robert. I will do the protecting coating after the ship completed.Yes use the natural colors it looks nice with the different timbers..If you are ...as advice...I use 2 coats of poly varnish and turps 50/50 mix and really soak the timber in it......Rub down with fine scourer between coats....Then I leave the ship out in the sun for a good few hours so it is quite warm and then soak in Scandinavian teak oil.This gives it the seal that keeps the timbers nice for years and also water proofs it fully . I have attached another ship I have done with a nice contrast in timbers finished exactly as I said above . This one is about 10 years old and is The Le HussardView attachment 149299
Uwek, Thank you. No new project for the moment. The kit I bought over 25 years ago but no time to build. I had reserved a display cabinet for the ship during the house renovation last year. Finally I got the ship be built. I enjoy the building process although I have not enough appropriate tools. My pleasure to share the pictures in the display cabinet as below.
