  1. Bruma, Your build log is a joy to follow and the fact that you take the time to answer everyone's question with thought and respect is commendable. I truly appreciate the amount of detail that you have put into this ship and it is a great example of how a plastic model can be turned into a true museum piece. I will be referring to this log quite often when I have a chance to get back to the work bench. Best Regards, Wayne
  2. That is a phenomenal work of art! I've been waiting excitedly for this update and you did not disappoint. I am truly amazed by the level of detail. I can't wait to see more.
  3. Chris, are you lighting this model? I ask because it looks like you added LED light stripes on either side at the main deck level.
  4. So, after tackling the Normandie, which came out phenomenal I might add, you decided to go after all the 1/600 ships? Sounds like a great idea!
  5. Very nice build to date and thank you for the tips like the plank soaking vessel and how to age chain. I also like your "time machine" approach to the build log as a way to catch us up. I'm looking forward to seeing more.
  6. That is truly beautiful! Magnificent work. Thank you for posting a build log of a model seldom seen.
  7. Ian, Great work on the Preussen. I have the Passat waiting in the wings and will be referring back to your build log when I finally start mine. Cheers, Wayne
  8. I just stumbled across this thread and got a chuckle out of some of the comments (might even steal a couple) but it got me thinking about something a good friend of mine just told me. He said life is like a roller coaster and we're now in the little hills that come up after we've already gone through the big drop and the loop. After a few more even smaller hills, we'll be coasting into the platform to finish the ride.
  9. Andre, That looks so cool! Planking a boat like this is really a leap of faith because at first, as the planking begins, you wonder how it's going to come together especially with all the compound curves but in the end after some careful sanding, the beautiful shape of the hull emerges. Cheers, Wayne
  10. I'm sure it was a real PIA but the frames really add a lot of visual interest and you've done a great job on them.
  11. It looks like you're off to a good start. J-class boats are very beautiful and fit in any decor. I can't wait to see how this comes out with the natural wood being left unpainted.
