    Very interesting stages of conversion Julián.
    What is it soaking in, in the glass?
    Rob.
    The Business of the commander-in-chief is first to bring an enemy fleet to battle on the most advantageous terms to himself, (I mean that of laying his ships close on board the enemy, as expeditiously as possible); and secondly to continue them there until the business is decided.

    It is alcohol. Does not damage the plastic, but it cleans the paint well.

    Sorry for persisting but what sort of alcohol would that be Julián?

    Antiseptic alcohol 96ş. I buy it in the perfumery of a supermarket. I think at pharmacies also sell it but more expensive.

    Thanks Julián.

    Sounds a lot more user friendly than Nitromors.

    Great build so far Julian. Are those Langton 3-decker masts? Beautiful job scoring the deck planks. I envy your ability to keep the lines so straight.

    Thank you Vol.

    Exactly, I have used from Langton 3D masts for the difference with the scale.

    By the way, thank you for the rep.

    A superb bit of work again Julián, but once more it raises a question.
    If you have pre painted the masts, how do you get the sails to adhere strongly?

    Rob.
    As you can see in the image that I attached, the brass sails have a little lashes to hug the mast.

    These sails are much lighter than those of white metal. It is advisable to do the union of metal with metal and not metal with paint or paint with paint.

    Thanks Julián. I have only ever used the pewter/ lead sails. These look far superior.
    It just goes to show that one is never too old to learn a new trick or two.

    Their thickness is very much better but the sacrifice is the double curved shape of filled sails.

    You can bend them horizontally and vertically to get that filled sail look. I use a large marble to shape them over.
    She really is looking superb Julian.

    Good tip Vol. My smallest planishing stake is a might too large for those radii.

    I just realized that the middle row of the side of the stern gallery are probably not meant to be glass.

    That's good eyesight Jonas!
    I could only tell there were windows, and my screen is at 150% mag at all times.

    You're right! I had not noticed that detail. I will paint it next as a wooden balustrade.

    Thanks for the observation!

    Indeed Rob, possibly a mistake in the design, does not make sense three lines of windows in a boat with two decks.

    I just wish I could paint it as a balustrade.

    You are really doing excellent work. I leave the British sterns as originals in my repaints as I don't think I can improve on them. You make an enormous difference showing how good they can look!

    Today I have finished the rigging and the running rigging. I also have changed the color of the side of the stern ( three lines of windows and now two lines of windows and a balustrade).

    Help if I actually BOUGHT A TICKET... lol

    In all seriousness, when Ares said "premium grade" on Special Packs this is what I would've liked to see.

    It has a cost in hand of hobra that a company type Ares can not assume. Too much risk.

    Beautiful work! To be honest with you, I would be too afraid to game with something like this! All it would take is one clumsy move or an errant die.

    It is possible, when I have played table games I have always thrown the dice inside a box on a chair just to avoid what you are saying. Regarding a clumsy move ... everything depends on the emphasis in the battle. When I see photos about tournaments I do not feel like players are moving the boats aggressively and nervous, maybe they put their best photos, hehehe

    Still, thanks for comment.
