Starting out.71 viewsSee the privateer album about the shaping of the hull.
This ship is then textured with a shaped trowel to create the effects of planks, the material is tile adhesive on grey primer to get adhesion.
Draw the trowel along the top plank, letting it cut in at a slight angle in at the top, so when you guide the next plank it will then create the edge you see here.

Deck hatches.40 viewsAll these are made of strips of wood, with miliput to create the metalled parts.

Ridge tile.31 viewsUsing miliput to make the long central log along the roof, this holds all in place.

3. River bed texture.35 viewsUse tile adhesive to paint the texture on the base, add small stones in the deep part of the river and larger along the banks. Paint dark green strip down centre of river and lighter shades towards the banks, this gives the depth.
Gentle paint layers of varnish overwards daily until the desired effect of glossy deep water is attained.
We give some twenty coats of gloss varnish.
Leave brush in water overnight, it will not go hard.
