    OK , so this kinda worries me. They dont want you to put any clear coat on top of the dry transfer decals. WELL HELLO! How else are you going to protect them?? The customer service of Scale Ships is SOOOO poor, youll never be able to get anymore, thats for sure. So Im going to do an experiment first by transfering some that Im not going to use on a test piece and spray some Minwax Spar Urethane on top of it and see what happens.

        This drawing shows the rescue bouy marker. Ill have to make one of these. Ill start with a plastic washer at 3/4" dia. Then ill apply some two part stiff apoxy to the top of it , than shape and sand it down to shape. Unless somebody has one already????????..........
        I actually found a plastic button at the sewing store already had the right arch to it for the rescue buoy on my type II uboat. the type that has a loop on the back that the thread passes through (not with the four little holes that go through it) all i had to do was cut the loop off the back and make the little detail on the top.

            So back on this clear coating decal thing. Last night, as a test, I took some dry transfers that I wont be using and I applied them. Then I took my Minwax Spar Urethane that I plan on using and coated it. No reaction was seen. After 12 hrs. of drying time they look good. So it looks good. I have found all the colors and materials that I need to get this thing painted, decalled and clear coated. Life is good.....................sometimes.

                The emblem on the front of the sail on my dry transfer sheet is white. From these pictures it becomes apparent that I will have to paint a rectangle of red on my sail before I transfer the white decal. This looks like a job for Mr. Airbrush! I hope that I can find it.Click image for larger version

                  I finished all the scupper grilles last night and all the Bondo sanding. Now the next steps will be to re-establish the line between the upper black painted areas and the lower red painted areas. This line on the bow is gone because of bondoing the seam and sanding. I will use my laser projector to show me the line and then ill mark it with a pencil so that I can mask a correct line.

                    Hi Mark,

                    Are you fishing to add yet another McLeod part to your OSCAR? I'm sure we can work something out...

                        In this picture, if you look in the bridge opening of the sail , you can see a large diameter tubelike structure with a hatch on it. Thats the hatch that goes down thru the sail.

                            So then here is my rendering. The hatch shaft I made from brass tubing , 1/4" dia. and a Bic pen stub. The hatch itself came from the brass detail parts supplied.Click image for larger version

                              Of course the bridge internals will get some more putty and sanding to make it ready for paint. The hole you see in the floor of the bridge is for the forward periscope.

ID:	63431This is the rear of the sail where it joins the deck and you can see how the bondo has shrunk leaving a gap. To address this I did the same thing again with taping down to the deck a piece of freezer paper and applying Metal Glaze to it and "Smooshing" it down on to the hull on premarked lines.
