Cheers....HOF.

Hi my friends.

 

Thanks for the comment and I dressed the ladies  :)  :)

I'm to old to look at those naked figures all the time when I worked on her  :P

 

@ Sam,

 

You are so right about the Stage Coach !

I have to look in witch box I put it.

I know where the horses are.....

Is that counting ????? :P

 

@ OC,

 

Thanks for the compliment that you are thinking that I build the Willem Rex.......but no.......

I should be very proud that a model of mine is in the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam.

The same museum where you can find the painting the Nightwatch from Rembrandt van Rijn......

That model ( What is build in 1698 ) ( if you can call it an model ) is standing in the middle of a hall.

And it is a beauty !!!!!!!!

They have more models in the basement and they are also beauty's !

If you want to see those photo's , let me know !

Anja wants to scratch the Willem Rex in a few years.

So I have to buy the book from Ab Hoving....

 

@ Bob,

 

Thanks 

( and that for a master builder  :D  :D )

 

@ Pat,

 

I wish there where not that many ornamentation.

It cost me a lot of paint !!!

And there will be even more.... :omg:

 

@ Hennie,

 

Keep away form those lady's !

They are holding you all ready from the Aggy.

Maybe an update will help?  :D

 

@ Popeye,

 

Thanks also  :D  :D

 

@ Hof,

 

They are standing sexy ( if I may say so )  :D

 

Mr. Pucko,

 

...........( no comment )  :D  :D  :D  :D

Small update.

 

Because I'm waiting for Anja to finish the hammock netting I have done something to the SotS.

I don't know how you call it but between the decks there are fences and I have to drill holes in it , wide 12 mm......

At the top there should be a space left of 1,5 mm.

And you can guess wat happened.....58caa024230ee_Holeintheboard.thumb.jpg.9812edbbf1112ced27cf27e2730df3a0.jpg58caa0213dc54_Holeintheboard2.thumb.jpg.7da5c15ec100b9dff81b473665464fed.jpg58caa01e455a2_Bigholesintheboard.thumb.jpg.bc3e0fab11e7894dec2dbaf67cf57186.jpg

I dare not put a like to that!!!   it appears that you may need to do some scratch build'in.   patch'in it back together may not be the way to go {is that a crack in the center?}    if you are able to get some 1/16 flat stock {1/32 would be better}........insure that it will flex to the curvature that you need to obtain.   I'm sure that you have some 1/16 square strip handy.    bend the square stock to the desired curvature..........cut the flat stock to the size you need for the wall.   what will help you here,  is that the deck is likely shaped to the curvature as well........glue the parts you've cut to it.   frame the wall from behind with the curved square stock {along the top edges}.   with the top edge {you can frame it in more if you like} framed in,  you should be able to drill the holes without splintering.   I usually begin with small drills and work my way up.........finishing it off with round sanding sticks.

 

I've been there before........I'm sure others have too.   perhaps others can share a remedy to this problem.   you can fix it my friend! ;)

Nope... not going to like that.   What Denis suggested for fixing.   Before drilling in "new" material if you decide to scratch build it, paint the wood with white glue and water (50/50 mix).  When it dries it hardens and strengthens the wood.
