Happy New Year to all!
I'm uploading some photos of the main deck detailing.
Unfortunately, it takes a long time.

For the new year, I wish you health above all!
And more models

More outstanding detail. What is that rack for?

 

Ian

This stand is for calibrating the width of the strips.
Example:
If I need 3 mm wide strips, I cut them 4 - 4.5 mm, then put them in the calibrator, and adjust the width by 0.5 mm on both sides.
In this way, all strips become perfectly identical at 3 mm width.
The thickness depends on the deck - I usually cut them the strips to 0.6 - 0.7 mm thickness - sometimes 1.0 mm - depends of the material.
After calibrating them and gluing them to the deck, with sanding I bring them to a thickness of 0.2 - 0.3 mm.

I meant the rack on the model. The one with what looks like a lot of beach towels on it that you just made.

Hahaha - my mistake, I'm sorry - I didn't understand you well.
I don't know a word of English for this stand - it's kind of like a warehouse for the crew's hammocks. There are on the boards too.
This saves space.
In addition, they protect against musket fire and boarding hooks :)

The work continues ...
I added stairs on the deck as well as boards for the dead eyes.
The dead eyes are two sizes, made of walnut and ordered by hismodel.com - Very high quality workmanship!
I used ink for coloring - in my opinion it best outlines the texture of the wood, without forming a thick layer, if for example, they are painted with acrylic black paint.

Absolutely mind blowingly stunning - and the perfect reason for me never to ever attempt building my own kit of the same when you can do a museum quality job of it instead. Quite stunning.
