I’d be curious to know what kind of paints you guys use?

Hull nearing completion.
Pondering to make the rope ladders and dead eyes separate and then attach.
Had some long eyebolts, and put them through the mast and formed the opposite eye after. Fewer holes.
I like the hull open on both sides. ( 6 tiers of planking )
CA for the nameplates and scroll wicked nicely.
Might still improve on the anchor winch.

She looks very nice with the contrast and complimentary colors. Each one of the YQ builds presents a different view and pleasure to see recognizing the differences in how each has its own tack. Rich (PT-2)

Indeed, she looks great and nicely made! I am glad, Rich, you made the point about the different views for the builders on the same kit! This is what makes this hobby exciting, IMHO.

She’s looking very nice Finn! I really like the rudder, simulating multiple boards. You are doing really clean work, and your attention to detail is great! Keep it up!
I agree with Rich, each ship being different is a nice touch by each individual. Who wants to see the same thing over and over…lol.
I found determining the length and of the shroud lines is better done with the mast on the ship, so you can use a spacer between the upper and lower deadeyes for consistency. But I have seen it done both ways. So it comes down to what you are comfortable with. ;)

What can I ad to the reply’s above? You have made a great progress with your build! On the deck and around the hull.
Regards, Peter

Beautiful play with colors and I agree with Dean that the "planked" rudder looks most realistic!
