|Halifax Schooner Plans at 1/1200 scale|
After they dried I had to cut two stern plates out of some thin card stock. I made them each slightly different. I glued them to the stern of each model. After they dried I colored the hull sides with a sepia marker and painted the bulwarks, rails and decks. As an after thought I cut a coupld of cabins to add to the decks and painted them as well.
Next I built masts for one of the boats then cut sails out to fit. I built the second mast set taller than the first, mainly because I think the sails to fit the first mast set are too small, but maybe not, I'm not sure at this scale. The masts for the second boat are also one gauge size smaller.

|The sails on the left boat will be larger|
|Bases are 30MM x 40MM|
