  3. FV Roc Amadour

    The stern trawler “Roc Amadour” was original built in 1973 by Ateliers & Chantiers de la Manche, Dieppe, France as hull # 1231. After fit out she sailed under various names e.g., Boðasteinur, Patricia IX, and Roc Amadour TG 340. She eventually underwent an extensive rebuilt in Norway and for many years was homeported in the Danish city of Vagar, in the Faroe Islands, southeast of Iceland. Unfortunately in March 2010 she was sold to a ship breaker in Grenaa, Denmark and now sadly awaits her fate with the breakers cutting torch.
     
    This build was from a Heller 1/200 scale kit to which I added detail such as: PE railings and ladders, ‘clear view screens’ on several bridge windows, whip antennae & searchlight on the fly bridge, lifting eyes on fwd cargo hatches and additional detailing of the rigid hull inflatable boat (RHIB) and its davit. I also added a trawl net and buoys, otter door chains and rigging, stored deck gear aft and hull zincs on rudder and hull.
     
    I used stretched sprue for most of the standing rigging. However I substituted thread for the 2 deck winch cables because in reality these cables are normally heavily laden with grease and do not appear smooth like standing rigging.
     
    Ship Dimensions:
    LOA 173.8 ft / 53.00 m
    Beam 35.5 ft / 10.82 m

    (2) 28t trawl winches
    (4) 10t bridle winches
    (1) Cod end winch

    (2) 6t side winches
    (1) 28t hydraulic crane
    (1) 30t net drum

  9. Amati Swedish Gunboat, 1777

    Recently completed model based on a small, inexpensive kit from Amati. Roughly 1:48 scale, this model was part of a "Group Build" where 5 ship modelers all worked on their own kit and met to discuss issues and solutions. Partly, this was an attempt to get beginning ship modelers more involved. Mine is the second one completed by the group. 
     
    I built this kit mostly out of the box, though I did use rigging line from Syren Ship Model Company. Still, I couldn't help myself and made a few minor modifications based on information found on the Internet, including a photo of a Swedish museum model.
     
    It was a fun and simple project for the most part, and it only takes up a very small amount of shelf space!

  11. 'Varyag' modern Russian pr. 1164 Slava Class. Trumpeter 1/350

    A model of modern Russian destroyer 'Varyag' (pr.1164 Slava Class ) in 1/350 scale.
     
    This is the fourth ship of the serie 1164 Atlant (NATO Slava class ). A guided missile destroyer in which the 16 tube launchers of anti-ship missiles bazalt stand out bringing to these class of ships a very characteristical looking.

    The built is based on Trumpeter's kit together with some aftermarket adds such as GMM set of photoetched parts (sold specifically for this kit) and tons of different stuff from my spare box.

    As a touch, I made the stern lettering of the ship photoetching by myself a piece of brass DIY.
     
    Hope you like!

    My AL Scottish Maid rechristened the "Lady Gina". This is my first ever attempt at a wooden ship model.  Through LOTS of trial, error and occasional blood, she finally came together.

    This is my first build completed Yee ha .
    It was hand painted using standard wood primer and then Humbrol Enamels. I've learnt a lot, I've made mistakes but it's been a thoroughly pleasurable journey. No time to waste as my HMS Fly arrived today, bring it on. Feedback welcomed
