Coming along nicely., if you resize your photos to around 600x450 they will appear on the forum rather than as downloads Cool

hey all,

so progress goes on and the build im finding is very good to follow having now completed the lower deck and stained, couldnt find a pine dark enough so went for a oak tried the stain first then the sealer on top has turned out alittle too dark maybe, i will try the other way around for the top deck will make it alitte lighter i have already test run it also think the brush i used was probably too think so will change to a lighter brush, i still love it and think its not too bad especially for my first build

BigGrin looking good and nice work. If you look at the official build you will see that the lower deck is mostly hidden by gratings so no real harm done there. Just get the top deck right as that's what you and everyone else will see.
Current builds:-C57,Zero, Lamborghini Countach, Caldercraft HMS Agamemnon,Robi,R2-D2, MFH Cobra .
