  1. Everyone thanks for the thumbs up. the chapter sloops. I finished the last one of this section and added some more details , still need to make 2 more, but I have to wait a little bit more on them, unfortunately they send me the wrong hulls, they where 13.5cm instead of the ordered 10 cm. so I will continue on the rest of the structure that still need to be constructed, like the compass platform and the fire control and mast. below some pictures of the sloops
  2. First Thank you all for your kind words and thumbs up. And we will continue a bit further with the sloops, below some pictures that I think more or less clearly show my steps , Three more sloops I have to make. Out of a total of 11 Of which 2 I ordered extra in Germany because they were not included in the kit I bought at the time ,( by the way the sloops are made out of resin, it takes some time and patience to get them as I would like to) The 2 that I extra ordered are currently on their way. So as said a number of pictures below, that will explai
  3. Very nice done, build her by my self in a 1/100 scale, but this is also very amazing, I like your details even that they are very tiny !!
  4. Thank you all for the praise and the tumbs up I also started making the large oarboats. They are not 100% ready yet, but I will make further details when the rest of the rowing boats are placed. under some pictures of the progress of the construction
  5. Everyone thanks for the thumbs up! today not much words let pictures explain.!
  6. Everyone thanks for the thumbs up In the meantime I made the ammunition cranes and hatches for the 8.8 cm artillery. Since I don't really have clear pictures and information about the situation, I came to the following. I think this is pretty close to reality. Below some photos.
  7. Thanks everybody for the thumbs up !! started with the construction of the motorboat standard. below a few pictures, explaining more than words
  8. Wish that i could shrink my self like Pan Tau does then i could sail on your ship !! Absolutely beautiful done !!
  9. And we're gonna go a little further Thank you all for the thumbs up and fine words. The boat cranes are ready as far as I can see The rivets are a kind of decals I once bought for model trains HO scale 1/87. this came pretty close to the 1/100 scale I'm building in. Some pieces come out nicely but also many pieces is the rivet for rivet to place, I fix the rivets with a liquid (solvaset) this makes the decals slightly soft and therefore more beautiful to form. The "old" ones weren't nice in shape and were distorted, so I made new ones out of
  10. update: thanks everyone for the thumbs up and kind words !! I've started with a first start for the on-board cranes since I didn't like the included on-board cranes I've decided to make them new. under some photos (its still premature, but gives a impression)
  11. first everyone thanks for the thumbs up Update : I think that I can close the steam launch chapter, I consider them more or less ready, so small details left but that I will apply on a later moment. still one motor sloop left but that’s a other chapter on a other time. below a few pictures.
  12. small update Thanks for the comments and thumbs up Still working on the steamboats, have made tarpaulins, the steam boilers and machinery and some details to the upper structure this far. Now working on the propeller shaft and rudder blade and some other details on the hull.
