Finally got down to business and finished the rigging on this 1/60 scale ship...I made the sail from oilpaper with the same logo that will be on the sub and the coastal patrol boat...kind of a theme!
Hey, gives me something to do at 4 in the morning right??? :D

Whoops! sorry I posted this into the wrong forum... :oops:
Just sink the Iron Beak into one your octo tanks, and you'll be squarely on-topic.

There really was a Viking longship named Iron Beak, by the way.

Great model. What's the sail made of?

:wink:

Thanks Tony!!! What an idiot I can be sometimes...oh well...

The chair was supposed to be done yesterday, but suprisingly enough for Phoenix, it has rained here steadily for three days...of course, when I needed to work outside...I did get the rough fit together though...a little more sanding, some final fitting...and "yeeha"!

Glad you all like the ship!

I can't stand those vacu-form sails, and real canvas is too gritty in texture, so what I do is:
Draw out the logo and scan it to the computer...size it to scale on a field of off white tone and print...lay the paper on top of the vacuformed sail, wet with water and press into place with a pig bristle brush...let dry for at least 24 hours.
cut out sail to match pattern, stain with oil based wood colour, lay back on top of vac. sail and let dry, again, about 24 hours.
seal with spray varnish...and there you are! A fairly realistic looking sail with a minimum of effort!

:shock: Greg

Now we all want Viking helmets to wear in Greg's longboat!
