Gorgeous result on the water and the overall look is absolutely fantastic!

Hi all well I've got this back out as Gandale (Alan on another forum posted an easy way to do the stays on this) (That's what's been scaring me from continuing this build) baring in mind this is my first attempt at doing them I'm quite chuffed with the result (obviously I've seen them done millions of times better but hey I can only get better from now on)

Nice work on the stays! This is the sort of thing that made my eyes cross repeatedly - I can attest from personal experience that it does seem easier the more you do them. Looking forward to seeing more and more rigging (and more and more and more, lol).

Hi all got this out to do some work on it. There seems to be a problem with the cheap paint I used on the base (Not had this problem before) the base started off dk blue but over time it seemed to go brackish


Which I didn't mind too much as it just looks like dirty harbour water but worryingly it is doing this from the edges and seems to be progressing inward


Do you think this will progress, if so should I stripp it all off (assuming I can) then start again, any suggestions.

Unusual look - I cannot think through what might cause pigment shift such as this except perhaps chemical reaction with the silicon but that is just a stab in the dark. One thing is that it does look very much like shallow sea water, not necessarily brackish but simply a result of being close to shore (and lets be honest, in the old days ships often emitted a rude halo of bilge and waste).

Best of luck with this issue, perhaps it will simply stop at some point.
