    Sure Lew, no problem๐Ÿ‘
    It's the super glue bit that worries me. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ
    No one had even heard of super glue when I was little๐Ÿ˜ญ

    Great looking and very clean boat. Nice work!


    Now it is time to make it more realistic and dirty it up some.๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜Ž

    I always weather and dirty all my models (especially model planes and boats). Makes it look more like real life.

    Doug, weren't you taught to wash your hands after applying carpenter's glue to "micro" ropes when you were little?

    Great first build Martin๐Ÿ‘
    Like the details, especially the seagull, surprised he's not busy scoffing the fish๐Ÿ˜
    I guess you know that Mรถwe means seagull in German.
    cheers, Doug๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Hi Lew, neat idea with the carpenters glue (aka PVA).
    BUT: Re "take some watered down carpenters glue and rub it into the lines (between fingers). Super glue will work too but will darken the lines."
    Don't fancy that๐Ÿค” I'd end up with me fingers stuck to the boat and get pulled into the lakeโ˜น๏ธ

    Awesome! Very nice little boat.
    Just a thought. If you need more fish, take rice and spray it silver, then flip it over and spray it black. I will post a photo to show a bit later on.
    For my scale models its pilchards.๐Ÿ˜†

    Congratulations on your first boat! Looks nice! Hint: Want to stiffen up those lines (ropes)? Pull them tight and take some watered down carpenters glue and rub it into the lines (between fingers). Super glue will work too but will darken the lines.
