G'day Patrick 

Bloody great job on the rooms. Must be so tedious to do them all.

Hopefully 'Eagle Eye' wouldn't see any spinners this time. Lol😆

Can't wait first the furniture. 

Havagooday matee

Hi Greg

 

Thanks. I guess 'boring' is one way to describe it, but it's still exciting to think that at least I'm getting closer to building all the fun stuff.

 

Can't wait!

 

Have a great week.

 

Cheers

 

Patrick

Thanks Denis

 

Really appreciate that.  Yep, you're right, though.  The cabins are TINY. I'm really beginning to wonder just what I've gotten myself in for, because there's not a hell of a lot of detail that I can add in them...but I'll try my best.

 

Oh well, at least I'm having heaps of fun (and satisfaction).  Can't ask any more than that, I guess!

 

Have a great week.

 

Cheers

 

Patrick

Having fun is the name of our game. And you are doing a splendid job, Patrick! Not to imitate Dennis with eagle-eyes, Looking through your pictures, I saw a hole in the floor, looks like along a passageway. Will that be for some stairs or a possible exhaust funnel on Shadow?

I'm wondering the same thing on my Mariefred, and it's three times larger in scale.

Hi Brian

 

Many thanks!  The holes that you mentioned are for the spiral staircases leading from the bilge deck to the upper decks. They look a bit odd now, but hopefully once the stairs are in place, things will make more sense.  Well...that's the plan anyway!

 

All the best.

You could enlarge a few, make them more spacious as one would expect on a yacht this size (and probably value), and the remaining smaller ones change into walk in closets, and/or hidden compartments for illegal traffic ;):):D

Hi folks!

 

Thanks for all of your Likes and comments!

 

Well, she's getting there, albeit slowly.  It may not actually look like there's been a lot done since my last update, but a lot of the work has been devoted to building more cabins and a myriad of other fine measurements and trimming of bits and pieces here and there.

 

Anyhow, I thought you may like to see where she's at via the following photos.

 

Have a good week!

 

Cheers

 

Patrick

Thanks Pete, Mark Greg, Rob and Greg!

 

It's fantastic that you're enjoying Shadow's journey.  Lots of waters still to be crossed, but it's been calm and enjoyable so far.

 

All the best!

 

Cheers

Hi everyone

 

I hope you're all enjoying your weekends!

 

Woohoo!!!  I decided to take a break from doing the cabin layouts to work on the fitting out of the Main Saloon.  Although it's still early days, Shadow now has the main settees (albeit, minus their cushions, which will be added later), four small rectangular coffee tables on the blue floor mat, and the main dining room table, complete with 14 dining chairs.  

 

Lots of fun to go, folks!

 

I hope you enjoy the following photos.

 

Cheers

 

Patrick

G'day Patrick 

Bloody incredible work mate. I would assume that you are using a mask- to stop your normal breathing to blow over those pins head size chairs! What a tedious job! 

That last photo with your hugh thumb says it all.

Oh don't forget to put some mags on the coffee tables, along with champaign classes and a bottle of bubbly, when you do the cushions. 

Outstanding work mate.

havagooday tomorrow

Thanks Greg!

 

You're right about the tiny chairs.  I've lost a couple very quickly already...!

 

The champers is on ice awaiting Shadow's maiden voyage.

 

Thanks again and enjoy your weekend.

 

Cheers

 

Patrick

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
