Work continues with the Black Seas model ship collection with the addition of three British 74's to join the frigate and brigs detailed in the last post


In addition, the first enemy vessel has joined the collection with the USS Constitution providing a pleasant distraction from the all that red and ochre.


I have also posted a video clip detailing some of the paints used and other modeling tips I have garnered from these initial builds.

Very nice work indeed! What sort of adhesive are you using to fix your ships to the clear plastic bases to keep from getting any clouding?

Hi Darryl,
Thank you. I am using UHU general purpose adhesive as it is called here in the UK, carefully put along the centre line of the hull in the case of the resin Constitution and close inwards on the plastic hull models so as not to have any excess squeezing out on the base.

The odd little bubble generally shrinks back and the occasional overspill has been gently removed with a cocktail stick, before it dries and so far it seems to give a good hold without any misting.

Hope that helps
