SHADOW by Omega1234 - FINISHED - Scale 1/300 - Luxury 60m Mega Yacht - 8 inches long

Recommended Posts

HI everyone

 

Well...life's just been getting in the way lately and sadly, that's meant that I've fallen way behind in following all my MSW Friend's logs. So, Denis (Popeye), Nils (Mirabella), Cog (Carl), Steamschooner, Mark Taylor, Lawrence, Frank (Mahuna), Piet, Nenad and everyone else that I may have missed mentioning, please accept my apologies.  I will get back on track and start following your logs again, soon!

 

Anyhow, back onto Shadow's journey, I've continued on with her Upper Deck's accommodation; principally her VIP guest suite, a staircase that leads up to the Sun Deck, and a myriad other tiny details which are too numerous to mention.  I'll let the following photos illustrate Shadow's progress to date.

 

Have a great week folks and thanks for all of your comments and Likes!  Much appreciated.

 

Cheers

 

Patrick

G'day Patrick 

Where on earth did you get those huge and over sized fruits and bowl as well as the bottle of water?

The launch looks bloody fantastic mate.

Havagreatweek.

Hi Greg

 

Shhh!  I've been sworn not to tell anyone where I got those giant fruits from😉  

 

Seriously, though...Thanks for for the compliments and I hope you're keeping well.

 

Cheers

Hey Patrick! Your model of Shadow is looking amazing, my friend! I must have missed this particular posting as lately I have missed a lot on here myself, but I am curious as to what you used to make the water in the sun-deck spa? 

Hi Brian

 

Ahhh, good question.  As with anything I do, sometimes it's the simplest solution that works out the best.  To make the water, I lined the interior of the spa with a light blue cardboard and then poured in some superglue to give it a translucent effect.  Not bad, I thought.

 

I hope this helps.

 

Cheers

Amazed as always with your creativity, Patrick.  Shadow is looking great.  I forget how small she is until you show her next to fruit, or your watch, etc.

Hi Frank

 

Many thanks for your compliments.  I also forget just how small she is until I look at the photos, too!

 

Have a great week.

 

Cheers

Incredible work !

What kind of magic do you use ?

Hey Nenad

 

Great to hear from you!  Sorry, no magic.  Just having a whole lot of fun doing it.  

 

Maybe that's the secret?

 

Have a great week and thanks for stopping by.

 

Cheers

Shadow's shadow did you say? Hmmmmm it looks like, a shadow from a real ocean faring ship, rather than a 8 inch model. 

Bloody great mate

Havagooday

Thanks Greg!  Much appreciated.

 

Have a great week.

 

Cheers

oh....I get it........stealth mode! :D    hey,  I know what you mean.   I'm on here regular enough.....but I've gotten to the point where I've got so many logs that I watch,  I get trapped in either one!  I really need to bounce around....a few here......a few there......I miss so much if I don't do something like that.   you've made plenty of progress.....don't kid yourself.....she looks awesome!

 

  cripe!  all the levels are starting to get cramped now!  amazing how much you've added to her! ;)

Thanks Denis!

 

You're not wrong about following lots of Logs!  Looking through the many Logs on MSW that I follow is definitely one of my great means of inspiration and enjoyment. It's just a shame that there's never enough time in a day to get through them all. 

 

Roll on retirement, I say!

 

Cheers

Hehe Denis. 

 

You're not wrong.  There're five decks to get totally lost in; so it comes as no surprise that you're having trouble finding the bathrooms.  I keep getting totally confused each time I look at the plans, so I know how you feel😉  

 

Have a great weekend.

 

Cheers

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.
