Yeah, too bad Russ publishes "books" and not a magazine.

Like the rusted hull look but that rudder is way too nice and clean. I think it should be really rotted and there should be very little of it left if it were to match the hull rust.

I have to agree with Bill here; looks like somone recently purchased this and stuck it on. Also...don't forget the bolt heads securing the strapping to through the wood....or if rotted and missing wood...the loose exposed bolt shaft, or the hole in the strap where it used to be.

"Cruelly blown up , need to replace that bit of wood on the gunwale, that kink its driving me nuts ............ early days for the rudder"

Barney ,absolutely no need to use the F word around here , some of us are still under sixty so have not heard of that sort of language before.

Now, I played around with existing rudder to see how decrepit I could make it ......... ended liking the colouring but grain/wear a bit out of the Walt Disney book so it will get changed.

 on my monitor that image is about 4 times actual size and close up reveals more work to be done on rust around stern post

OK, Mk II rudder



I have found it challenging, to balance a more accurate representation with the want to emphasise the message of "rot". This one still has a feel(slight?) of caricature but I hope still stays on the side of scale representation.

I have no doubts I will be told one way or the other   Smiley

Gordon,  My thoughts  on the wood rudder is this  Wink...being the boat is so rotten there should be no wood LEFT.  Just model the metal that held all the wood together.
