Pirate Sloop 
I've also had a go at making a textured sea base to stick the ship onto so that it looks a little more nautical. I cut a sheet of 2mm plastic card to shape then drew around the hull to mark on it's position. After that I scored the areas to be textured so that I could apply a stiff mix of PVA glue and filler in the area around the hull. This was then stippled a bit as it set to make something that (hopefully) will look like a rippled surface.
It might work but I'll have to wait and see what it looks like when it's dry and ready to paint. To finish off I now have to clean up, undercoat and paint the cannons then add a few extra details, not forgetting a jolly roger for the top mast. I need to finish this lot off in the next couple of days if I'm going to have time to sort out the 20mm Valiant British Infantry by the end of the month.
