  3. Have not been here for a bit....WOW I am floored. This is museum quality. Nice work mate!
  4. I will second Don's post and welcome you aboard to MarisStella clan. I am on my second build from them and am more than happy with the contact I have made with Zoran. I can not give higher praise to an individual dedicated to helping out with his product. I am looking forward to following your build log.
  5. 'She is looking sweet indeed.
  6. Looks interesting, I'm pulling up a chair, popcorn at hand.
  7. Looking real good Zoltan, As you know I am following your build with interest. Picking up as many details and info for my own build. This is what I like about this forum, all the knowledge at our disposal and a bit of friendly comments always helps to make beginners like myself better modelers. BTW loving your facebook pages. Cheers!
  8. Hey Doug, Looking real good, totally agree regarding fairing the blocks. I just spent the weekend with band aids on my thumb. Not that I'm much of an othority on this but I am finding that a pillow and various blocks of wood with coarse sandpaper the best assurance to a nice hull. It's taking a lot of time and patience, trying to keep it all in one piece is key. All in all it's pretty relaxing when you just take your time..... Hey there's my new signature.... Keep up the good work....
  9. Looking like you're making headway. I know what you mean about fairing the hull. I just began mine. Slow going and tender handling. Keep up the good work. I'm enjoying the build.
  10. Moving along nicely Zoltan, you are making me jealous, I should be spending more time on mine. Your planking is looking pretty good! Keep it up.
  11. Thanks for the kind words. For those following, a little update, I did some preliminary panelling on both sides at the stern and bulkhead 11. Next I started fairing the blocks at the bow, this is a slow going process. Not much to look at I know but this step takes time. You know what they say! "The foundation to a good planking job starts with proper fairing of the hull. "
  12. Looking good, quick question? What scale ? Keep up the good work. will be following.
  13. Hey Achu, Looks like you are off to a good start, despite having to do some truing of the keel. I am no expert here but I found the Minwax Wipe on Poly works really nice on the wood. It brings out its natural beauty and leaves it satiny looking. There are many other poly finishes out there but this one Ive used on my Batelina and was very happy with the results. Good luck, I will follow your build.
