I just figured it out Doris, you don't have to sleep like the rest of us.

Michael

Yes, it is true, I usually sleep about 4 hours per night, only rarely can sleep more. I have problems with sleeping, so often work or study during nights.

 

Best regards

Dziadeczek:  Thank you very much for your praise, I am pleased you like my work.

 

Now the pedestals are finished and placed under the huge hull of the Royal Katherine. Enjoy the pics and have a great time.

Thank you for your comments, Michel and E.J., and also to you all for the support and "likes".

 

Today I have finished nameplate, its base and letters are made out of card, the frame is wooden. I tried to do it in the style of English Restoration approx 1670 (the frame and small ornaments) and you can also find there initials of authors - me and Captain KL who helps me to achieve more realistic results and gives me professional advice how to do things correctly and better.

That's why you can watch here a completely different build of the Royal Katharine than those that are based on modeling plans - unfortunately, in many ways, fictional.

Beautiful......

 

questions:  Did you secure the pedestals to the base...or are they floating?

Did you cut out the letters with a knife and then paint them...and if you did..how did you do it so smoothly?

Hello Rob, 

Thank you for comment. Well, the pedestals are secured only gently in the middle section, so that they can be removed due to the additional painting of lower part of the hull.

Yes, first I cut the letters (I also use quality scissors/the Solingen brand), put them on adhesive tape and oversprayed with gold paint/Tamiya TS-21. After the first layer, the surface is still harsh with plenty of imperfections. So I applied more spray layers and after drying and placing letters on the nameplate there were again added several layers of this paint - but here I applied it using small brush. In the end the letters are smooth and more plastic.

 

Best regards

I have found your thread only today and I have spent most of my day catchint up with it. I am impressed with your technique, precision and creativity!! I have no words to describe how impressed I am by your work.

 

I have a very small ship that I haven't worked on for a while (my job's falt) but seeing your work makes me want to go back to the table right away and work tirelessly on it!!

 

And I was in Czech republic for work for 2 weeks (came back home last week)… If I had known your work by then I'd make sure to arrange a visit and be amazed by seeing your work first hand…

 

👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏
