Good news everyone! Three models can be marked as finished - CSS Patrick Henry, CSS Jamestown and USS Sassacus all have the rigging installed and are ready for the game table. Huzzah!
CSS Patrick Henry
What's in Progress?
A fair amount of activity this week. Basically a lot of small tasks that are not yet gelling into tangible results.
|CSS McRae is slowly getting painted.|
|USS Susquehanna had the masts assembled and mounting holes drilled out this week.|
|A big side wheel frigate. A nice model from Bay Area Yards.|
|The post from the aft mast is smaller than the other two. I drilled to hole too large and the mast rattles around a bit.|
|USS Miami also slowly getting painted.|
|USS Calhoun getting a little pigment laid on. I'm thinking a mostly gray palette for this one.|
|Bit of a mess right now. Painting the superstructure is a pain with the hogging beams in place.|
|USS Eastport getting the base coat applied. Thinking white upper works and tan/gray decks.|
|USS Kearsarge with a dark gray hull color applied.|
|Slow work on USS Pawnee. Doing a good job on the rigging adds a lot of time to the modeling process.|
|The two Lackawanna class sloops. The one in back is the last unassembled model in the queue. At this point every model is assembled and at least primed! Huzzah! Huzzah!|
