Well after deciding what to coat the skin in, "Coelan" with a white pigment I got going over the may-day weekend.
Coelan is an incredibly expensive coating but only requiring a few coats and its amazing elastic abilities its looking like a good choice at the moment.
The layers went on quite painlessly, and apart from the incredible stink it wasn't to much of a pain to apply.
Here is it is with the final coat applied.
And now time for the final test... will it sink?
It sits like a treat in the water, I am really happy with how it
handles and surprised how stable it feels.
Don't get to over confident :)
Well, I suvived it its in one piece so I must have done something right.
All thats left now is to add some decklines and toggles that I am in the process
of making now and this build is finished.
