Hi Patrick - just catching up again.  That tender will look really nice.  I'm continually amazed at the scale you're able to work in.

Hey Frank

 

Thanks and I hope all is well with you and your family. 

 

Cheers

Patrick,

Catching up. You continue to amaze us with your skill at a scale we mortals can hardly imagine. Do please show the electronics, servos and motor you intend to install (this is an RC build isn’t it?). Inquiring minds want to know. HA!

 

Excellent work.

Hi folks.

 

Just a quick update on the progress of Genesis’ RIB tender. Almost finished, apart from some finessing and sanding.

 

I hope you enjoy the following photos.

 

Thanks

 

Patrick

Hi folks

 

Thanks for all of your Likes and comments!

 

I’ve put a halt to all building works in order to concentrate on the painting of the hull and superstructure.  I’ve opted for full gloss paints for the hull and superstructure; which, I feel is entirely appropriate, especially given that the full-sized boat is full gloss (well, that’s my excuse, anyway).

 

Now, without further ado, can someone pls tell Luke Skywalker that his spaceship is almost ready to be picked up from the maintenance shop?

 

I hope you enjoy these photos.

 

Thanks

 

Patrick

That's a spectacular finish Patrick.  Nevermind Luke and his offsiders, keep your maintenance shop locked as I may just be tempted to sneak in and blast it with my 'enlarger' gun and make off with a new toy :)

 

cheers

Hi Josh - Thanks.  The champagne’s on ice, pending a few more details like the engine room and lower deck that needs completion.  Once they’re done...whoohoo!  Champers time😊

It looks very sharp Patrick, you have done an amazing job on the boat, the style is not really my "cup of tea" but your model does do the full size one justice.

 

Michael

Hi Michael - Thanks heaps for the compliments.  I must admit that even I look at the hull sometimes and I still can’t quite believe that I did it.  Talk about a ‘challenge’...definitely not for the faint hearted, that’s for sure.
