Hi Song Jung Gun When I add any timber to my builds I prepare the surface for paint with a sanding sealer then sand down untill smooth then apply another coat and so on until the grain is invisible . Will you paint the model or leave it in its natural wood effect ? A very impressive build :thumbs_up_1: :thumbs_up_1: :thumbs_up_1: :thumbs_up_1:

Dave,

You asked the question I was thinking when this build started. I watched the images of the beautiful carved wood hull taking form, and I thought it was just too pretty to be painted. Something like True Oil (high quality linseed oil) seemed more appropriate. But the hull was painted - it does make a more realistic model!

I once built a plank-on-frame sailing ship hull, and was pondering how to paint it. I eventually decided I liked the pattern and colors of the natural wood planking, so I left the upper hull unpainted. Maybe it wasn't true to the real ship, but I just couldn't bring myself to hide that beautiful wood.

I think I could never work entirely in wood like Mr. Song Jung Gun. After creating such a beautiful wooden model I would always want to keep the natural wood finish - more of a work of art than an accurate model.

Yes I look differently at Song’s Roma more art than craft and ponder the same thoughts, like a shipwright model that remains faithful to the texture of the original material preferring the timber surface to that of paint .

Hi Dave!
Yes I fix into position major structures and small fittings fix later. Sometimes fittings is located inside df structures then fix the fittings. My working sequence: 1. from lower to upper 2.from inside to outside 3. from bigger to smaller.

Hello Song Jung Gun!

Your work is unbelievable! You are no modeller, but an artist!!!!
To see your ships growing and proceeding is so much inspiring, although most of us will never reach your magnificent skill!!!

Keep on watching you!!!! :woo_hoo:

Best regards

Joachim

Hello Song,

I renew to you the compliments :thumbs_up_1:
The model is realized by project or as Rome was delivered to the Italian Navy, in the second case , of the four supports for the boats on the deckhouse aft only the first two (per side) were mounted , instead of the other two were mounted one on each side two aa gun 20/65 twin.

Hello Giampiero!
Thank you! Your advice is correct. I like install boat on the deck instead of AAgun.
Your JK Song

I am just wondering if this would look even better with a wood dye/varnish rather then the usual great coat of paint I dare say it will be having. :whistle:
