  1. Slow progress, haven't really done anything since november, kind of lost the will with current situation, but thought it was about time to knuckle down and crack on with it. probably not going to do much more to the hull apart from a few small deckdetails. Time to start the lateen rigged masts,the holes are drilled and lined up ready. 😁
  2. Oh no, thats not good to hear, i really feel for you after all that hard work! I actually only rig seperate parts and then do all the assembly inside the bottle with lots of made up poky pushy and pully tools, mabe now its in you could try a different approach to finish it, have, a rest and a think and go back to it in a while, i think you will be pleasantly surprised at what you can achieve!
  3. I use quilting threat and polyester thread, both are nice and smooth and also glue well.
  4. Stunning donald, looks fantastic, love the stand, real work of art! 😎
  5. Looking amazing donald, loving this sib, great details! 😎
  6. Finally got back to it, not much change apart from a couple of ladders and a hatch cover, just need to keep away from distractions and crack on! 😁
  7. Its been 3 months since the mould problem, and luckily it hasnt returned, made sure to glue the cork in aswell. Thanks to all who contributed the great advise, it really helped! 😁
  8. I Will do that, good idea, i didnt think of that! Thanks bernard. 😁
  9. Lucky for me, my wife works in a clothing store and keeps bringing me packets of desiccant silica gel home! The sun still hasnt come out, so ive got my uv heatlamp on the go aswell. Thanks alan.
  10. Ive just tried a fungal/mould cleaner and it seems so far so good, i have also got an aquarium air pump set up and some packets of silica gel inside, so now its a waiting game! Will put it out in the sun later if it decides to come out today! Its been rather wet of late here in essex😒. Thanks for the great advice, i was very nervous as of what to do as its a first time for me and hopefully a last. I will update later, thanks exwafoo. 😊
  11. So ive just seen the sib i made for my dad back in may and much to my dismay discovered mould growing all over the ship, im thinking that maybe it was corked to quickly and still had too much moisture content, as this was built in very very short notice. So now i have brought it home to try and carry out emergency mould removal, hopefully i can cure it before its irreparable! So was wondering before i make a huge mistake, does anyone have any advice as to what to use to remove the mould without damaging the acrylic paint! Thanks. 😁 The black marks on the hull and the furry growth on mizzen and foremast, also the whale tail are most affected.
  12. Maybe a fishing rod with line and just a weight on the end with a large unbarbed hook, cast out over the boat and hopfully reel it back in.
