Go online and look up "furling sails". Keep it simple too. Furled sails look great. Use Kleenex, per another modeler"s blog, whose name I forget (have to learn to write things down), with Elmer's Wood Glue at 20% and water at 80% mix. The color is right, the results are pretty good.Yes, I’m past the point of no return for the studsail booms and yards. I’m making my own with bamboo skewers. Think I will take your advice about import positions though. Thank you for the reference. You’re right. I have a lot to learn especially with terminology. Thanks again for the help.
Hallo @pbryan ,Hi all. I’m Paul and have decided to take up modeling again. I used to build some in high school but now 35 yrs later I decided to give it a shot. I went with the USS Constitution as I retired from the Navy and wanted to do something historical. I’ll post pics as I progress. I’ve been at it for about 3 weeks so far.
Reading the article referred to in post #86 made my bones ache.pbryan - here is an interesting article on color scheme(s) used for the USS Constitution. A little long but I think you would enjoy reading it. (if you haven't already!
