Cruiser Varyag 1901 by Valeriy V - scale 1:75

Recommended Posts

Hello Vialery V.!

That is a real beauty in metal! The decission to avoid plastic sounds interesting. Because the wheelhouse bares a lot of problematic details as the decoration easy to solve with several layers of evergreen card.

 

What is your reason to vote against plastoc - the reenaction of oldschool modelbuilding would also have avoided the lasercut bulkheads - so what is the reason for you crossing out plastic?

 

Not only to be a critic questioner here a link for some great pictures to seversl detail problems that later will geather on and around  the maindeck:

Down under the example of the hullside stairs with gripping holes inside and the torpedonetpole's fastenings.

Hopefully this helps a bit.

Hi, Heinrich der Seefanrier!

Thank you for taking care of me! :) 

 

Almost all the photos from the Internet on Varyag I already have. Very few quality photos. This cruiser did not have time to shoot a lot of photos.

There are several reasons for this approach.

 

1)  The first reason is durability.

     Plastic is an unstable chemical compound. It is destroyed by ultraviolet radiation, temperature extremes, mechanical forces, etc.

     Metal and wood models have been standing for more than 100 years.

Top work Valeriy,

 

the making of hull and props is masterly done, she´s going to be a beauty.....

What other models did you do before this one,....any pics available ?

 

Best regards, Nils

Thank you, Nils.

In the museum style there is now a photograph of a steam torpedo boat (1901) of 1:24 scale. In 2013, the boat was delivered to the UK  https://www.modelboats.co.uk/news/article/the-2013-model-boat-convention/17134 . The text contains the name of the owner of the collection who now owns the boat.

Valeriy,

 

nice jig-arrangement for propshaft alignment. I looks like  the two mounting screws through the propshaft housings will disable the shafts from turning.... is that wanted this way ?

Yes, Nils. This model is not running, so the shafts will not rotate.

Arghh ...this is so beautiful, it is almost a sacrilege to paint these propellers and shafts.

 

Yves

Yves, this will not happen. The metal will be clean.

 

Fore  torpedo tube.
