A Wooden Plane kit, last year's Birthday present from my son

The construction

Taking shape, but very confusing as the design is not the same as on the illustration or on the box

I used a tad of PVA wood glue on the joins and going to give the glue a good 24 hours to set and then I'm going to think about adding some kind of stain and wax finish to the wood

To be concluded...

I applied some wood stain, usually I would use a rag, but there so were many nooks and crannies, that I applied it with a paint brush and then wiped off the excess with a old sponge. I did this by little sections at a time as not to get an even coverage.

After applying a second coat of stain allowing it to dry in-between coats and after the final one, I then applied some wax with wire wool.

Even though this was going to be a basic model, nothing really detailed, I felt that there were something missing :think:

So I decided to add some rigging using some brass tubing.

This is the finished result
