    Wow, thanks Yuki Yuji!
    You be sure to study and not worry about us, okay?
    We'll be here when you get the chance, and look forward to hearing how the exams went, and to talk about your wonderful models.
    Best regards,
    Jim

    Barry, she is coming out great!
    Those lattice masts look a bit difficult but I agree, the results are well worth it!
    Keep them photos coming!!

    Re: Oliver Hazard

    I have yet to build a ship model of any type outside of a simple five piece Viking Ship. But seeing this model go together and the way it is starting to look, makes me think attempting a ship might not be the hair pulling experience the Cleopatra would be for me. I am looking forward to seeing the finished model.

    But I would still love a chance to build a model of a Wind class USCG icebreaker 8v)

    Very nice, barry! So this is the kit you were recommending to me. Those masts look complicated to me but I think I’ll definitely give this one a go.

    Oliver Hazard masts

    Hi Ajax

    if you look on the site below
    http://home.kimo.com.tw/yukiyuji/downl1.htm

    you will see Yuki didn't do any of the cutouts, I just wanted to try.

    A couple of points colour the reverse side before starting, smear white glue on the back of the card after colouring, stiffens the card.

    I found it easiest if I cut the diagonal braces first, then the 90 deg cuts use a sharp scalpel.

    Have fun

    Barry,
    Actually I believe the photos I have seen of the OH Perry Yuki Yuji made DID have the cutouts on the lattice mast, but I don't think they were cut as closely as yours; some of the background color was left on his model in the photo I saw, but some was cut out.
    It was not clear whether he colored the inside surface, though.
    Your version looks so very good. Thanks for the tips; I'll see if I can come close to what you did when I try her in a few weeks.
    Looking oh so good!! :D

    who said i don't cut the cutouts of the mast?
    i cut the cutouts and keep the background advisedly tj sure the mask not so weak ,and i haven't colored the inside surface,because i haven't more time to do it .......
    i think it easied to cut the cutouts first and then cut the mast from the paper.....

    Sorry Yuki my eye's again you are right about leaving the masts on the main sheet before cutting them out.

    Re: Oliver Hazard masts

    Thanks for the tips, barry. What do you use to color the reverse the side? I've seen both colored pencils and markers being recommended.

    Ajax...I generally use watercolors for almost all my coloring needs. I have watercolor pencils of various shades (I think it was a 48 color set) I use for edge coloring (don't apply paint directly with the pencil...use a very thin paint brush, wet it down and rub it across the point of the pencil to get paint on it to apply) and I have a 12 color primer set of basic colors in a tube I use for the heavier painting. I use watercolors because a lot of it ends up on me and it is easy to wash off 8v)
