Excellent progress! Thumbsup I am impressed with the gun barrels color. How did you paint (if this is a paint\weathering)?
Thank you for your kind comments.

Since I don't know if you ask me about the barrels or the gun barrels, I explain both (My english is limited :oops:).

The cannon have also been airbrushed.

I first apply two coats of black acrylic. Vallejo Air 71057
When the second coat has not yet fully dried, I apply the silver color (Vallejo Air 71063) very gently and by far. Too little paint to simulate the metallic effect. As the black background is still a little wet, it looks as if it were the same painting.

When everything is dry, I apply with the airbrush matte varnish.

The barrels are made of cherry wood. Once finished, sanding and applying a cherry-colored water stain.
When dry, I apply a soft coat of varnish matte.

Hi
Thanks for the comments and likes
These are the latest news...
Working on the last deck.











There is still a lot of work but I am already rethinking the base for the placement of the model.
I share the design and plans in case other modelers are interested

To be continued....

Hello Kkonrath.
I spend a lot of time on weekends especially now that I can't leave home.

In the day to day, my work takes me almost 12 hours a day :confused:Sick .

Keep up the great work you are doing.

Your company should be glad to have a dedicated worker like you helping out these days.

Hello
After a few days disconnected due to work issues, I will post the latest advances in the section.
I have finished the top deck and made the base for the section.
I have added various details for the decks.
Right now, the only thing missing is work in the "Mesa de guarnición y obenques"... (mainmast channel and shrouds) I'm not sure of the English translation.¿???

Base construction
