    Default What's on your workbench for April?

    The workbench.



    The work.



    All fleets now secure in the new top cupboards.
    Now putting in the lower storage cupboards.
    Trying to get this stage completed before we leave for Prague.
    Then that will leave the playing table and its under table storage to complete.

    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.

    So I've been busy these weeks. Here's San Juan Nepomuceno and San Agustín:

    Do you repainters spray the models with a matte or a satin coat? Does it "stick" well? My yard tips are already chipping...

    Very fine they look too Rolando.
    I keep having a peck at my ships from time to time trying to improve the look of the masts but it is a slow job with everything else demanding more time.

    As you can see Jonas, I did not quite get the plinth made for the last cupboard before we left for Prague, so I guess this is still my workbench for April for now at least.

    I did pick up another Sloop from Ladinek's shop which will be undergoing a sea change soon. As far as all else is concerned, all work is stopped until they finish knocking a hole in the Kitchen wall where the sink and window used to be.

    I'm working on my first 1/1200 models, being a trio of British frigates, and for some reason I have started with the smallest - go figure



    Standing rigging complete, albeit with a few errors and first sail on.

    Comments always welcome

    Thank you, Rob! I finished the Starter set's HMS vanguard and HMS Terpsichore last night. I went with the bottom masts in yellow gor both, as a compromise between their original lemon yellow and varnished wood.

    I drybrushed the Terpsichore a bit with dark grey.

    Well very authentic they look too Rolando.
    Some of the chaps on the Drome are also dab hands at getting that varnished wood effect on the fuselages of the early Albatrii. It might be worth having a look there.

    I've got a bunch of Warhammer 40k Adeptus Mechanicus models to put together. If allowed, I'll put some pictures up on my progress so far?

    (just noticed it's now May, I guess I've missed the boat on this oops)
    No-one expects a ship full of dwarves.

    | can't see any reason why not Gary, but it may be better to put them in the general comments forum so we don't get too many mix ups with ships!
