Langoustier by mhmtyrl -1:35 - Finished


Recommended Posts

Hi Mehmet

 

Wow!  Looks like another beautiful addition to your fleet has started.  Although the hull's just been planked, it doesn't take much effort to imagine what she's going to look like when she's finished.  Full of weathering, salt-spray, atmosphere, rust, grime, fishing gear, etc and above all, character; that's for sure.

 

Please count me in!

 

Cheers

hello everybody

 

I have made some progress, deck buildings are constructed (not glued to the deck yet) and the body is painted-weathered. some salt streaks are applied to the outer hull. in order to remove the paint at random locations, I first applied varnish to the whole body and painted aftterwards when dried. Applying the masking tape and detaching it at random locations leads to loss of paint on those areas, but better to be carefull....as a large area of paint can be lost :-) which actually happened in the green painted area of the outer hull....

dear all

 

I will be glad if you have any ideas about my question;

actually I was planning the deck buildings to be in the color of the photo below (Dagmar Aaen, Germany). in the records it says that oregon pine was used for this (if I am not wrong). I also used pine (it was all wet when I found it and was in the color I wanted) and applied around 3-4 layers of varnish on it but I could not reach the color I like, what would you suggest for that? pinotex? if pinotex which color? oak? pine?

 

thanks 

 

Mehmet

hello everybody

 

some progress so far, I have made the deck items such as crab traps, barrels, buckets and buoyancy materials.

.....and figures. Figure faces are awful I know :-)

 

especially captain's face looks as if he has recently been out from a horror movie....I do not know what to do....in you tube videos all look  pretty easy to make.

 

I guess it will be finished in few weeks

Hi Mehmet

 

I'm totally gobsmacked at those figures!  Can you explain how you made them?  Were they carved, or sculpted out of modelling clay?  Either way, they look terrific.

 

i especially love the effect that you've created as the crew strain to launch the pot over the side.  A picture paints a thousand words!

 

Cheers.
