Hello Dear Model Ship World Forum fellas,

 

I am new to this forum, joining from Helsinki (Finland) and this will be my first post.

 

In the past years I built Bluenose (Billing Boats), San Juan Nepomuceno (Artesania Latina), Titanic (Mantua), Endeavour (Caldercraft - This one I quit half way indeed, for varoius reasons ) and after a few years of idling around with other hobbies, recently I decided to start a new model, which will be Amati Riva Aquarama. There are some excellent build logs of this model especially in various forums focusing on Radio control models, inspiring me to take a new challenge including radio control, water proofing etc.

 

Anyway, I am hoping to post a build log of it here once I start doing it, but before that I wanted to build a great looking building slip for model ships by a Polish company called Hobbyzone (www.hobbyzone.pl). I saw this tool in one of those forums which I mentioned and thought I have to have one.

 

So this topic is a build log of this tool.

 

Regards.

Unboxing the package, here are the pieces. First impression is the very high quality MDF and precision.

Instruction sheets. Pretty clear, but some photos are missing details which is sometimes confusing to find the correct orientation of the pieces. There is no accompanying text (almost none).

Following the order of the instructions, it is relatively straightforward to assemble it. However perfectly aligning the parts has been sometimes challenging. In the various photos you'll see I have used other parts to support the assemblies while the glue is drying, in addition to the clamps. This is also suggested in the instructions.

There were also nails included in the package but I did not find a use for them. Maybe they are meant for enforcing some of the assemblies in addition to glue, but there is no mention of where to use them in the instructions.

 

EDIT: In the last photo of this post, note that the piece has been fixed with double screws per side. This is a temporary action I took just in order to maintain the right angles correctly until the glue has dried. While in use there will be oce screw per side (you can see from the final view photos)

Finally ready. Technical specs (from the manufacturer's website):

Technical data:

- Base size: 100cm x 25cm

- Maximal length of keel: 100cm

- Maximal thickness of keel: 7mm

- Possibility of turning the kit in 360 degrees. Which allows of other work to be done like for example planking.

- Ruler with 1mm scale allows for ideal setting of elements.

That is a nice building slip.  Thanks for the link to Hobbyzone.  They make some nice products for the modeler.  I look forward to your build log on the Riva Aquarama.

Thank you for posting this. I have this building slip kit still in the box waiting for a big enough build to justify using it.

I like it also. If you go on the web site and view it, they show you every angle and what everything is for and what it does. You think about it, we build wooden ships, a good about of us do scratch building, which means you could make it yourself, with more functions built into it. Now I am not saying that it's not worth it to buy, but I think that making one like that yourself could be a pleasure to do. Just a thought and my 2 cents, before they do away or change the penny LOLL

 

PS. I like that you can turn the ship on it side, upside and in fact any angle you want. Nice real nice indeed.

Given the exchange rate on the Zloty to the US Dollar, the price isn't too bad considering the size of it.  I didn't check out other exchange rates, however.

What about the shipping rate, did you see anything on that when you check?  That just pop up in my mind.

I Googled it, Joe.

 

It's listed on EBay but I didn't go there... had a connection problem.

 

Amazon...  about $100 USD with "free shipping".... 

 

Hobbyworld - USA -  $65 but no precalculation on shipping.
