Hello Everybody,

After watching the forum and doing some research in the last year, I have finally gathered the courage to start a Soleil Royal model. I have always been fascinated of ships, their history and the way they worked, so it is a great privilege to be able to give shape to such a marvel of engineering at its time.

This is the fist model I ever started in my life, and I know for a fact that it will be first of many.

I would appreciate any advice you have for me, and I hope you don't mind that I will be asking a lot of questions.

I have attached here some pictures of the built so far:











I would really appreciate if you could recommend a type of varnish that I could buy for the model. I am using some kind of varnish that is white when applied, but it goes transparent once it dries, which is fine. The only problem is that I need to apply about 4 coats in order to achieve a good result. Was that the case of all of you? or you might obtain a nice finish from applying 1 2 coats only?

Also is there any way I could find the set of paints needed for this model? Or could you recommend me the shades some of you that have built this model, used?

As this is the first model I built, and I lack the experience, I won't go into being very creative, but I would rather stick to the instructions.

Thank you very much guys, I can't wait for your thoughts on this, and your recommendations.

Regards,
Oliver.
