Bob showed his blockade runner "Teazer" at last night's Ship Modelers Association meeting, along with his tank-killing "flying boat" that was such a hit at last Friday's IPMS/OC meeting. See the following thread:

I suggested a name for Bob's little Manila boat -- the "Andrea Dory". ;-)

Blockade Runner completed

Added Railings and rigging:

Bolt threads did not allow the parallel closeness desired therefore
the 205.7m polyester thread was anchored in place with a piece of kneaded eraser.
A dental tool applied equal (eyeballed) distance dots of Aleens tacky glue to the stretched thread. Short polyester strands were pressed in place with a dental tool.

Sprayed Krylon Acrylic clear gloss on the assembled thread railing and allowed to dry overnight.

Next day, placed threaded railing on a white card and carefully removed excess edges leaving a ships rail that doesn’t look too shabby. Aleens again used to attach rails onto decking.

Rigging was done with 137m Upholstery thread.

Another clear arcrylic gloss coat added to base.
