you are building a kit, you're kit bashing !!!!!

 

now I know why it looks so gooooooood!

 

luxury upstairs, only the necessary downstairs ... reminds me of a Tommy series ...

Haha!  Thanks, Carl.  

 

Please don’t expand the photos too much as you’ll really see the rough edges and mistakes!  Seriously, why does magnifying things have to be soooo cruel!

 

I see what you mean about the Lower Deck having the ‘necessities only’...well, where else are the hired help going to live???  You don’t want to spoil them...!

 

Have a great week.

 

Cheers

 

Patrick

Hey, Omega!

 

Me and my family are very well. But the summer this year had been so warm that I was more interested in swimming, barbecue with friends and family as to sit in my dockyard. And there had been two wonderful journeys with my admiral to the Lofoten (north Norway) and to Denmark.

 

Best regards

Hi Angarfather

 

What’s life without some enjoyment, hey? Swimming, barbecuing, friends and family...all food for the soul.  Enjoy!

 

The dockyard can always wait.

 

Cheers

Terrific work Patrik, those decks and their furniture look fab!

Pat

Thanks Pat.

 

If truth be told, I think I’m having too much fun with this model...so much so, that I’m getting all arty-farty with the style and colour combinations, the eclectic mix of furniture and the artwork.

 

Maybe I need counselling to curb my overly-creative tendencies😉😀😉😀😉😀

 

Cheers.

To the King of Itty bitty scale, 

This is turning out to be an amazing built. All the colorful furniture is in place. Don't think you have forgotten anything. 

It is a sleek looking yacht. I bet that the real ship looks pretty amazing as well.

Thanks Marcus

 

I’m glad you’re enjoying Genesis’ progress as much as I am.  The colours certainly make the model ‘pop’ really nicely.  

 

Have a great Xmas!

 

Cheers.

Hi Patrick, that's some superb work at that scale well done

I'm sure if you had enough money to buy that boat you would have a bit more taste in furnishing and decoration than what you are showing  !!!(😀😀 only joking, I love it

Hi Paul

 

Haha. Yeah, I know that the furniture is really ‘way-out’, but I really wanted to push myself out of my comfort zone as far as the decor and furnishings go with this boat.  Having said that, I can honestly say that my model is pretty tame compared to the real boat, Khlalilah.  If ever you get a chance to google the real boat, you’ll know what I mean...😉.  Nothing in that boat is for the faint hearted, I can assure you.

 

All the best

 

Patrick

Merry Christmas folks!

 

Thanks for your comments and Likes.

 

Up amidships on Genesis’ Sky Deck, sits another helm station (for want of a better term), consisting of a large all-weather instrument console and two comfy chairs for the skipper and another crew member.  I had a go at doing these last night.  As with everything, the up-close photos really magnify each and every mistake.  I swear, everything looks fine if you stand a couple of metres away....

 

Bear with me, I’ll get around to cleaning them up one day😊.

 

Any how, have a great Xmas and a happy 2019.

 

Cheers

 

Patrick

Just manage to catch up, very nice Patrick, full of your usual good vibes! Lovely details, the sculpture, the lump, the computers, also I would not mind having some of these rugs at my place...

 

I wish you a wonderful, creative and healthy 2019!

Hi Vaddoc

 

Thanks and it’s great to hear from you. Yes, Genesis is surely pushing all my boundaries and comfort zone in terms of what’s possible; but hey, that’s what makes this hobby so much fun. 

 

Have a wonderful 2019!

 

Cheers

always neat to see her all laid out like that  ;)     quite a bit stuffed in there already!  awesome project to be sure.........oh, and I always thought those vents should have been slanted.......they look much better that way  ;) 

Thanks Denis!  

 

I agree with you about the ‘vents’ (which are actually full height windows). It’s just another example of where the plans on the Internet differ from how the actual boat was built. 

 

Have a great weekend!

 

Cheers

Happy New Year, folks!

 

Thanks for all of your Likes and comments on Genesis’ progress.

 

A quick update.  I’ve been working on Genesis’ bridge over the past few days.  So far, I’ve managed to make the four chairs for the skipper and other crew members that man the bridge.  Off to one side there’s another chair and chart table for the Navigator.  Immediately opposite on the other side, there’s a small L-Shaped settee and a table.  

 

Still lots of work to go.

 

Have fun!

 

Cyeers

 

Patrick

I just enjoyed catching up. She is a weird vessel, however as usual, your ability to work the detail at this scale is most impressive.

Hi Keith

 

Many thanks for your comment above.  Yep, I agree that she’s a design that takes some getting used to, but, therein lies the attraction for me, I guess.  

 

As as a side note, looking back at the construction process so far, I can’t help but think why, oh why, did I go like a ‘bull in a China shop’ and do all the detail work, instead of the painting first? Now, I’ve got to start to think about how I’m going to sand and paint the hull and superstructure with all the detailed stuff in the way.

 

Oh well, such is life, I guess...

 

Cheers

By holding the 4 chairs with your fingers, one can truly see how small and detailed everything is. 

Excellent craftsmanship 

Marcus 

Many thanks Marcus.  

 

Yep, tiny for sure!  So tiny, that I lost three previous chairs to the carpet monster earlier that night.  Hungry little beast, that carpet monster😉😉😉

 

Cheers
