As usual, a wonderful standard of craftsmanship here, Derek. I just love the transition between natural wood and your painting which seems to magically transform it to steel and iron.

Very nice Derek
You are inventing bio-modelling!
I suppose you work with glues for wood ( avoiding cyanide glues)
Do you use putty for plastic models or do you have some paste made for wood ?
I’m looking forward to see a sail ship or who knows a 1/72 wooden hurricane built by you!
Cheers and thks
Hi Kloster I use Evo Stick wood glue.When and if I put a plastic kit together I Use Revell plastic glue.Never use putty or wood filler.Sail ships have never appealed to me. I did make the. victory when I was a kid. I’v made a few Spitfires from wood but never a hurricane.Now there’s a thought.Many thanks Derek.
