Absolutely stunning work Janos.Its starting to spur me on to carry on with my Sovereign,but I just feel I haven't enough time at the minute to get carried away in the whirlwind of carving.Time just evaporated whilst I was working on her.
I was supposed to give some pictures about the guns for SoS but I hit a snag... After casting and clearing up I applied the primer and then unfortunately painted the barrels with Tamiya Bronze colour. Well, to say the least it did not come out well so out came the paint stripper and the barrels went back to their state after the cast. The biggest problem was that I used the glossy kind of the pait and that I brushed it. First it looked well but then it looked ugly. So a second run is under way. I ordered the flat bronze paint and I am eagerly waiting for it.
Just catching up on your great build. I am at Awh with your great carvings and along with so very many, you are surely turning your Sovereign of The Sea into a great museum piece. Sure wish that I possessed just a bit of your great carving skills. Later on, in the early winter, I do intend to try to carve or should I say try to carve a figurehead for my Oliver Cromwell, ENJOY.
