  • Chacabuco

    I have kicked off January by amputating some ships to start building my Chilean Navy Squadron.





    .

    Now to remove unsightly midriff bulge.





    After gutting the ship's mid section cut off the peg for use later.




    Drill a hole in the end and superglue in a steel pin ready for re attaching to the ship's hull at a later stage.

    Just had time to position and drill hole for peg wire in hull.



    Then glued peg onto hull and left to harden overnight.



    Yesterday I got the sails drilled out ready for re-positioning




    And Milliputted the two halves back together.



    Just waiting for it to cure.

    Milliput mixed with superglue to make it cure quicker. You can sculpt it after about an hour and it will totally cure overnight.



    Last evening I started to clean up the seams,



    and then repaint the ships sides and deck before replacing the ships boats.





    Painting now finished, and just the central mast to re-position.






    There we go all fair and frolicsome

    Here is the completed Chacabuco.


    I can now get on with my other Chilean Navy ships.
