Designing as I go. Placing windows and details to get a feel for the overall effect.
Cutting the window and door openings
Cutting scribed cladding. Trying to minimum waste, if possible.
I am at a stage where I need to think about what details will be required for this model.
Thanks to a few friends, who provided me with some web site links, I have been able to research the history of Sailmakers.
I start with a new cutting blade for every new project.
Using old, blunt blades is just a waste of time.

Experimenting to select a colour for the structure.
Acrylic paints, mixed with windscreen solution to obtain a stain.
Titanium white added to the brush and blended for colour variation.
