Wonderful ! Fantastic !  Can't think of any other great words to describe this unusual work.

 

Montani semper liberi  Happy modeling

   Crackers   ^_^:):D

Hi Hartmut

 

I'm with Crackers on this one. I'm running out of superlatives in the English language. All I can say, is "Wow and wow again".

 

Nice work.

 

Cheers

Thanks to Patrick and all the likes!!

 

@Patrick It depends on whether I find a suitable tool. Otherwise I make my own scrapers.

 

I have used this tool to make the profile rails.

 The mainrail is 2mm. For this job I have made a scraper by myself.

First step for building the Stern was this rail. It will be the base for the counter and the stern. Its a very big rail but it will be the base for the decorations.

To make this rail in one operation was a little bit complicated. Therefore I have made it in to steps. First the big one, and than the smal decorationrail.

Very nice build Hartmut,

 

I am missing the view into the beautiful furnished cabins, as the deck seems to hinder quite some sight to the interior, maybe it`s only the angle and distance of the picture taken....

A wonderful ship !!   :)

To make the front wall of the pavillon was very fiddly. At first I have made some decorations for the pillars.

It had been a wonderfull sommer. Two journeys to Danmark, two most interesting jobs and last but not least the birth of my seventh grandchild, Richard.

 

Therefore there was no time left for modeling. That was already o k. But now its time for working on.

 

The windows of the pavillons frontwall. I have made it from quadrangular brass, and glued it with cyan acryl. To instal the windowpins ( 1mm brass wire) I have drilled in 1mm holes into the frames.

Hello again, 

during the last 3 month there was no time for modeling. Some most interesting jobs, Christmastime and so on. But now I am back in the dockyard.

 

Next steps had been modelling the window frames of the Pavillon and to finish the pavillions front.

Hi Angafather

 

Great to see you posting again! Your ship's looking brilliant, especially with all the details that you're adding.

 

Hopefully you'll have more time now to work on her.

 

Cheers

 

Patrick
