|Wooden model of a ship being built. There was one figure on the model that indicated it was scaled for between 15mm and 20mm sized figures. With enough of the scale specific stuff stripped away, I thought it would do fine service for 28mm figures.|
The wooden model was very old apparently, as many of the glue points had dried out, and there were a lot of bits that had fallen off it. This didn't bother me, as I already had thoughts of making it look like the ship in the beginning of the first National Treasure movie

I decided, since the base of the large ship would be snow, to paint the base white separately, and then spray the ship. I'm not sure if I'm going to go with black or a dark brown. Likewise, I'm not sure how the foam the pirate ships are made of will react to spray paint, so I think I will give them a coat of paint by hand, and then spray over that.
Hopefully, I will get a chance to do some spraying later today.
