Hi, this is my Billing Boats kit. Its out of the box except I made open gunports that I tried to position based on the wonky locations of the original ship. The front towers on the galleries are not the big ones in the kit either. Otherwise details and things here and there are tweaked as usual on models like these. I lighted the kit also
Planking finished. Its single planked as I was afraid to mess with the proportions of the kit.
And here she is stained and painted. Colors are my own mix and I find inspiration by the work of the artist Vroom. I also looked at the tarred look of the Götheborg replica when she was new.
Cheers Alexander, Im happy you like it! To paint the hull, I mixed 4 nuanses of bets to stain it. Afterwards I used pastel powder, acrylic washes and drybrushing to make it vibrant. Also sanding to make the layers blend and give a rough look. Airbrushed a coat of acrylic varnish once in a while to bind the pastels and make it blend. Very fun paintjob, but perhaps the trickiest Ive done as its hard to balance. Ill look for pictures.
