What a little marvel. The box wood matches perfectly the aged sails. So lovely.

 

I remember you were doing that model for a friend or some acquaintances. I know he/she has been waiting for a long time and if his/her desire is gone, I am willing to take this model and live with it. It is a big sacrifice but I will do it, bravely.

Thanks Popey, Yves and Thomas and the likes ... very much appreciated.

 

@Yves: What a generous offer ... but ... no 😄

 

It's for my father btw.

 

It's always a bit risky these late "operations" but I wanted the missing details here too. It's not exactly how it should but it tells the story I think.

Now all the little missing parts needs to be done too 🙂

 

First the position lights. I wanted to fit them as on the orginal with wire around the shrouds.

0.2mm holes and 0.1mm wire later ....

Now all the other missing parts ...

 

BTW it is very important to have the brown sails! Fishing ewers from Finkenwerder had these while ewers from Blankenese had grey sails!

 

cheers,

Gorgeous work Dirk. I love the case to present the model. Very artistically done and that blue fabric is perfect to display the boat.

This is a true museum piece. 

Your Dad will be proud to have such marvel from you.

Dirk,

 

Could you elaborate on how the case is built? It looks like you designed a strong base of a very nice wood (which one?).

Also, are the panels made of glass or acrylic? Did you glue them yourself (glue type?)?

I don't have pictures how I built the Maria socket but it is the same as here for the SD. The wood is Elsbeere.

The Case is Acryl and custom made by a german company. Quite affordable though.

the lamp looked OK........painting the lense part yellow or white would have made it look better.   your second lamp looks better ;)   

 

ever play with the Billing's version of lamps or lights?   I use window maker for the lense,  then dab some paint inside after.   usually for the nav lights, they supply small squares of red and green paper or plastic to stuff inside....that works too.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955.
