    HMS Wivern by Chausseur

    http://The small interior bulb has mercury in it. Dispose properly not in regular garbage. I also use two bulbs. Break one for the end and the other cut about 1/4 to 1/8 from its end destroying the screw base. A diamond cutter works the best. Acid,etc no so much, personally don't use it. I have a lot of ends, want one?

    How to Build a Bermuda Sloop (for beginners)

    I take it your hull is NOT in two pieces, which will be pegged/glued together when the model is finished in the bottle .

    I use glaziers putty as well. It is made to stick to glass. I don't use acrylic paint, though I will try that. I use Prussian Blue oil paint mixed with the putty. It's messy but gives the sea a good colour. Off white for the waves.. However it takes a long while to dry. Even then, one should prevent any sails from toughing the sea. Blue seas are deep water. Greenish are closer to shore.

    How to Build a Bermuda Sloop (for beginners)

    Thanks for the info. I had noticed that on the stamp of the Turks & Caicos Islands 10C ER 11 picture of an Bermuda Sloop that there was a sail that was taken in. It is between the mast and the inner jib. I assume that there are stud sails in your drawing as well. Again thanks for the info and I look forward to the rest of your build.
