Okay, Doris - now you’re just messing with us!  Really?  A perfect card model recreation of your Nissan?!

 

Whenever it is that both of my children have stopped believing in Santa Clause, I will let them know that it is perfectly real to believe in you - the magical maker of things.

 

I don’t know how you do it, or where you find the time, but it is a real treat every single time.

 

Happy New Year to all!

Hello Mark,

I am pleased reading your words, thank you very much. I enjoy making realistic models of various things - sailing ships and sport cars are my favourite objects.

Doris,

 

Thanks for showing us your wonderful work. Whenever I need cheering up, I come to your build logs - they lift my heart.

 

All the best for 2019,

Richard.

That is so nice, I am glad I can bring people pleasure and joy. Thank you for your kind words, Richard, they are much appreciated.

I've finished the chairs (also made an improvement with their design) and other accessories for the great cabin, they are still without paint  - I am going to paint them after finishing all pieces of furniture.

Thank you Nils, Amalio, Richmond and Rob, your praise and comments mean a lot for me. 


Thank you all for likes and support as well.

 

I have just finished the panel with swords and other weapons from that period and also tried to make other hand guns according to real replicas.

Here is the result, enjoy it:

Hi Doris,

 

Astonishing small detail. Beautiful!

 

I apologize if I missed this, but have you ever made the King's cypher or emblem for a cannon?

I was about to start on photo-etching these for my project, but your tiny guns made me think that there might be another way.

 

Best wishes,

 

Mark

Doris,

You are on your own level.  I don't think I have ever seen such detail on any model at this scale.  I just am in awe of your talents.

Looks like load resistors to drop the voltage and/or limit the current for the LED lighting on board, Joe.

Dear friends,
thank you very much for your feedback. I am honored reading your praise and appreciate it a lot.

Very cool! Those weapons are a detail rarely seen on models. Adds another touch to an active ship.

Oh yes, I would like to make my model based on real ships from that period. The weapons are shown for example here:

I am going to make new and more accurate replicas of weapons for the great cabin so there will be some changes during following days.

Hello Mark,

Yes, I made them for cannons on the yacht Royal Caroline and Sovereign of the Seas as well. I used my favourite modelling clay (Modurit), the result is not bad, though I believe that photo-etching parts are more precise and look realistic.  
On the Royal Katherine I am going to make these small emblems from modelling clay as well and hope, they will be much better than my previous. I will bring pics from the tutorial to you.

 

Here are some pics of my card cannons with clay emblems from the yacht Royal Caroline, scale 1/40:

Hello Tom, 

I am flattered. Thank you. I'm sure, there is always opportunity for improvement and that is great motivation for us. I still try to learn a look for new ways, how to do things better.

Exactly, I use these resistors to limit the current for the LEDs and dampen lighting.

At last I have painted the furniture using oil paints and also made a trunk according to items from that period.

More information about the trunks is here:

I am also working on the Yacht Corsair ii (plastic kit in a scale 1/130), which you can see alongside the Royal Katerine.

 

Best regards,

Doris

You are welcome, Mark. It is not a problem to make tiny details and ornaments from this clay although in my opinion the photo etched parts will look better and more professional.

 

Some current pics from the great cabin - furniture is almost finished:

Now I will make accessories and new panel with weapons.

May I rent that cabin and live there? It's lovely!

No problem, druxey. If you wish, you can belong to my crew on the Royal Katherine and also visit this great cabin. There will be plenty of seamen on the model and I am going to create them according to real people I know.

I cannot guarantee the perfect portrait of the face, but I will definitely try to imitate.😉

Fantastic...wonderful...marvelous..

 

I wonder..what would the cabin look like if the light were not coming from the open ceiling(Your over head lights), but from the LED's you installed?

 

Can you temporarily cover the roof and let us see what the effect will really look like?

 

It might be a bit darker and full of shadows....

Doris,

I am looking very much forward to see you making the crew. What a challenge to make portraits of real existing people!

Congratulations on stylish interior of the cabin.

Hello Rob, 
you are right with effect of LED lighting; here are some current pics from great cabin illuminated only with LEDs inside. In my opinion, this looks more realistic and natural.

Hello G.L.,

Thank you for your kind words. I have already done crew members according to portraits of real people on my previous ships and I would like to continue with this tradition also on Royal Katherine.

For example here is the crew on yacht Royal Caroline (card model from scratch) in a scale 1/40. On the last picture it´s me.😊

If you wish to be there, you can send me your photo through PM and I will try to imitate your face in one of the sailors. During next months I will start to make first crew members.

I will be pleased to have my friends from MSW on board.

 

Best regards
