Nice work so far Mark👍 Dunk them in EzeKote (Deluxe Materials) before you paint them 😉 I might have been more inclined to make the trucks and wheels from a close grained hard wood though! Cheers Doug 😎
Hi Mark, box wood would be good👍 Which mini lathe do you have? I use the little Proxxon FD150/E for small, smaller and smallest jobs.😉 Happy turning, Doug 😎
"The Jackdaw" brig class, 1st build - Posted: 20th Feb 2018
As the title says this is my first build of model ship, I always wanted to build so no time like the present. I am building it from scratch as i was told that it would be easier that way and there are no kits available for the ship i wanted to build. Having fun doing it anyway and so far so good although it will take a long time to finish but its a labour of love so i don't mind that too much.
