Patrick,

 

Had to do some catching up. I like the pict where you hold her in front of the light. Nice progress on the interior too.

 

Cheers

Hi Carl

 

Great to hear from you.  I hope all's well at your neck of the woods.

 

Incidentally, I have to agree with you about that particular photo.  It's my favourite too.  I love the way some of the interior can just be glimpsed because of the backlit windows.  Nice!

 

Have a great week.

 

Cheers

 

Patrick

Hi folks

 

Thanks for your comments and Likes!  Much appreciated as always.

 

A quick update:  It seems that after a crappy day at work today, I'm now having way too much fun working on some of Shadow's deck furniture.  In particular, I've created another 12 seater table that adorns Shadow's Sun Deck, (this deck is her uppermost deck).  Also located on the Sundeck are three of those luxurious sun lounges, you know the ones in which the bikini-clad super models drape themselves over.

 

I hope you all have a great Friday and weekend.

 

Cheers

 

Patrick

Great progress Patrick, like the dinner table arrangement but the table needs some stuff on top though ;)  Really LIKE the back-lit shots of Shadow, masterly one my friend.

 

Cheers,

Many thanks Piet

 

I also like the back-lit photos.  Strangely,  they weren't intentional.  Instead, I was just mucking around with the camera Nd accidentally took the first shot.  Mmmm, not bad, I thought!

 

Thanks also, for the advice about the bare table.  I'm working on it!

 

Have a great weekend.

 

Cheers

 

Patrick

Are you planning on putting little supermodels on your super model?  Wow, the photo of the chaise on your finger really brings home the scale you're working in.  Great work!

Hi Frank

 

You know, I actually was contemplating trying my hand at making some super-models.  However, with my poor level of carving abilities, sadly, they really would be 'stick figures'.  If that were the case, my stick-figured super models would never grace the latest fashion mags ever again!

 

Oh well..I know my limitations!

Hi everyone

 

Thanks for your Likes and following along.  Greatly appreciated.

 

Over the past few days, I've continued to add a bit more to Shadow's Sun Deck, principally, the large white sun baking settee situated on the aft of the deck.  To add further interest, I've added some different coloured scatter cushions.  I've also started to flesh out a bit more of the detailed work surrounding her spa, situated at the forward end of the Sun Deck.

Lastly, I thought I'd take some photos of Shadow alongside photos of the real ship that Shadow is based upon (i.e. Mary Jean II). As you can see, I've got a long way to go before I can truly say that Shadow's finished.

I hope you have a great week, folks!

WOW!  you've really moved along with shadow Patrick!   you've also taken some really cool pictures too.........I'm amazed with how close you are to the actual ship :)    she's a super looking model!

 

so your a walking dead fan too!!! ;) 

Hi Denis 

 

Many thanks for the compliments!  I'm not actually a Walking Dead fan, but I remembered that you are, judging by the references you've previously made in your logs. I reckoned you might get a kick out of it😏!

 

Meanwhike, I've been a bit slack lately and because of that, I've got a lot of catching up on a whole bunch of logs; yours included. Maybe this weekend. 

 

Have a great day. 

 

Cheers

G'day Patrick 

Bloody beautiful job. It's hard to spot the difference between the real ship and your model. 

I love the back light shot as well.

Keep up the great work and of course the logs.

Hi Greg

 

Many thanks and it's great to hear from you.  I was wondering how you've been over the past few weeks.  I hope all's well at your neck of the woods!

 

Have a great week.

Hi Meddo

 

Thanks for your compliments about the photos.  To be honest, I wasn't sure how well the photos would turn out, but I was pleasantly surprised!

 

Have a great week.

You have done a brilliant job and the two boats look identical, somehow though your boat looks way more of a fun place to be.

Loved your sunbeds!

Thanks Vaddoc!!!!  If only I was tiny enough to luxuriate on the sunbed...I'd be a happy Chappy....

 

Have a great week.

 

Cheers

Hi folks

 

I hope you're all going well.  Meanwhile, back on Shadow's Sun Deck, I've added a bit more stuff, principally the bar that sits just aft of the spa, as well as some assorted cabinetry for the guests.  At the aft of the deck, I've added a tiny round gold coloured table, adorned by two chairs for guests to sip cocktails as Shadow sails off into the sunset.

Lastly, I've added some 'artistic' shots of Shadow; you know, just to get the imagination flowing...5932c3ba6964b_2017-06-0321_39_36.thumb.jpg.09673b786ae900cf5dfeb4e00e1edcd4.jpg

Hi Paul

 

Many thanks!  Yep, you're right about the crew.  The only trouble is that I've never made figures as tiny as they would need to be for this ship...but alas, nothing ventured, nothing gained. It'll be well worthwhile giving it a go!

 

Have a nice night.

 

Cheers

 

Patrick

Many thanks!  I'll try, but I can't guarantee that they'll be 'good looking'😉.

 

Have a great day.

Hello Patrick

 

Just catching up on your Super Shadow, have been caught up in my own little corner for too long now [The Old Shipyard ], I do try to not let this kind of thing happen but it does keep on recurring. I am truly amazed at your great progress on your tiny ship, and I thought that the Golden Hinde was small and a bit difficult to work on. Just love all of that very fine detail that you seem to add so very easily and make it all fit in just like it was always there and belonged there,                                                                      ENJOY.

 

Regards   Lawrence

Hi Lawrence 

 

Thanks for your compliments, especially about the level of detail that I've packed into Shadow.  You know, I reckon that no matter what size we build our models, it'll all work out as long as we love what we're doing. The same goes for your Golden Hinde. 

 

Well, that's my theory anyway. 

 

Thanks heaps and have a great week. 

 

Cheers

 

Patrick
