Starting to weathering upper deck.
I used 4 colors to WEATHER the deck
This is the base pain coat (Light TAN)
Then I dry brush Brown with a dab of Green
and for the final coat
I very dry brush with black.
I think it came out looking pretty good!
What do you think??
The gun deck is done
That big blue thing is a pice of tape holding down the
anchor ropes that go thru the upper deck.
Rigging the gun doors is done in sets of 2.
I start off on one side and loop the rope
thru the door… then the hull.
Thru the hull for the other gun door then thru the door.
I tie a big knot a drop of glue on the both (knot and the loose) ends
and the and then use the forscpts to pull it tight
Here are some pictures of the gun deck.
I am about 1/2 way done ( I think )
This is an overview of the gun deck
These are the port side guns
A closeup of the guns.
Here you can see the ROPE tan thread that is on each gun
The sad part of this work is
I don’t think it can or will bee seen
once I get the upper deck on.
I have always wanted a nice tall ship model.
🙂 So My Suzie bought one for me
Its the Revell kit# 0398 USS Constitution
It will be almost 3 feet long and 28 inches tall, a true masterpice!
