  1. Hi Nils Thanks! ...with all those cool curves....Nils, I can’t tell you how many times I’ve lost track of them so far. Sometimes this design really ‘does my head in!’ It’s certainly challenging, that’s for sure. Have a great weekend. Cheers Patrick
  2. Hi Lawrence! Thanks for the mighty fine compliments. Greatly appreciated. I got to admit that I’ve been a bit absent lately on MSW. Work is getting in the way and I’ve just been too tired to get on and look at everyone’s logs, yours included. Hopefully, that change one day soon. Hi “Michael. Thanks for dropping by. Great to hear from you! I understand exactly what you mean about the design of this boat ‘not being your ‘cup of tea’. To be honest, it wasn’t my cup of tea either until about six months ago when I started this boat. Having said that, this is a design that challenges one’s perception of beauty and is about as challenging to build as one can imagine. Needless to say, once I got started, it has really captured my imagination. Thanks Marcus!!! I gotta admit that I kinda like that title...”King of Itty Bitty Scale’...hehehe. Not quite sure that I deserve it though. Thanks also about your comment about the ‘curves on the ship’. I definitely agree, as well. This is a design which is both challenging and thought provoking at the same time. It certainly is a captivating design. Have a great weekend, everyone! Cheers. Patrick
  3. Hi Denis Many thanks! Much appreciated. Not quite PE, though...just some gold card stock which really looks the part. All the best. Cheers. Patrick
  4. Many thanks, Frank! It's great to hear from you! I hope everything's well with you and your family. Take care. Cheers Patrick
  5. Hi folks! Thanks for all the positive reactions and comments to Genesis’ construction journey so far. Much appreciated as always! This latest update shows that I’ve been adding more detail to the large settees on the aft main deck, as well as bit more furniture on the aft of the Sun Deck. Also, as a homage to the real ship that Genesis is based upon, Khalilah, I’ve added gold card to the main deck house and other assorted areas of the superstructure, in order to bring some contrast to the black superstructure. I hope you enjoy these photos. Have a great weekend! Cheers. Patrick
  6. Many thanks, Denis. I gotta admit, building this hull and superstructure has been one heck of a challenge...but, what’s life without a few challenges here and there? Have a great weekend. Cheers. Patrick
  7. Hi Frank I’m sorry to hear that you’re going through a difficult time at the moment. Undoubtedly, family and your home life are far more important than modelling. I hope that that those issues are resolved soon so that you can return to normalcy Take care. Cheers. Patrick
  8. Hi Gene That’s totally understandable. I’d be quite wary of damaging the model as well. I just can’t seem to get the vid to work, though. Cheers. Patrick
  9. Well...okay, then. I don’t know about anyone else, but I’m mightily impressed!!!! Are there any photos or vids of her underway in the water? Cheers. Patrick
  10. Hi Gene What a seriously outstanding and finely detailed model. You deserve to be justifiably proud! Thanks for sharing. Cheers Patrick
  11. Hi Vaddock and Carl Thanks for the advice and comments. I tend to use two types for my boats. The first is the Gel type, which is perfect for quick jobs as it’s thick, has a longer drying time and allows for final adjustments to be made. The second type is the runny Zap A, which I use exclusively for flooding and saturating the wood, or cardboard; thereby making the surface super strong. Perfect for my teeny tiny work. Cheers Patrick
  12. Hi Vaddoc Yes. CA glue is what I use almost exclusively, because it’s quick drying and non-messy. Do you you have an alternative idea? Thanks Patrick
  13. Thanks Pat!!! Much appreciated. Cheers. Patrick
  14. Hi Peter ...nothing like a bit of whimsical fun and fantasy to catch the kid’s attention. I like it! Cheers. Patrick
  15. Outstanding effort, Adrian. You should be justifiably proud! Well done. Cheers. Patrick
