The M&M Fun Ship by popeye the sailor - 1:33 scale - the lost log - finished

Recommended Posts

thanks OC.........sadly,  I don't think I got to see your Vic.  with all the logs I look at {and I do oggle over quite a few}  I missed it :(    I don't miss too many of yours now ;)  {notice I said 'many'}.  that my no name Bass.......don't even know who makes it.   it's a shorter bass.....kind of like a student model.   I put a set of flatwounds on it and it sounds really nice.....has a nice smooth 'bottom' to it.  I have two other bass guitars.....a Fender Squire P body,  and a Epiphone Les Paul.

 

the last set of pictures were from 7-25-2012............these are from 7-27-2012.  I started to flesh out the aft cabin roof.   looking at these pictures.......I can't believe I did this.

this was just the beginning for the pilot house.   the cabin roof is a rounded triangle......I planned to shingle it.  the shingles were cut and shaped.

I was getting an idea of how they were to fit.......I started to plank the deck at this time too.

all cut into little wafers.......they will be shaped and trimmed into the shingles.

they were set on a board.  once arranged on the board,  each one will be given a color.   they are to follow a pattern.

I had taken paper and cut them to the contour of the edges.   the shingles that line the edges of the roof will be trimmed to these pieces of 'templates'.5ade77646ea8b_14.JPG.15a87585016424907bc219590f2b8e68.JPG

I guess I spoke too soon about the pages  :D  :D    all these pictures are in about 54 folders....roughly 54 sessions working on the model.  I wonder how many pages it will take to tell the tale  ;)   

 

7-30-2012

 

those pieces of paper were used to form these singles for the edges.   the fillers were stacked up according to color.

the edge will have a length of drip molding across  the front.  {I guess I was dry fitting the deck planking?!?!?!}

this wasn't a big session........not like the others {I was a madman......}   there was some fitting and painting.   I made the molding to hide those gaps along the edges of the aft cabin.

5ade7c83e3f1e_1.JPG.a38aa079b710203d5cf99e227f36f038.JPG

the exterior of the pilot house got a coat of paint...

I did.......I missed 7-28     anyway,  I made up some decal stripes {these are actually train decals}

I don't think I used the pink-ish looking ones.   here is how all the decal work was done.

Whew! Looking at how fast she was coming together, I feared I'd missed the whole saga - glad to see I can follow along with the rest. Looks like a unique project - glad to see you're able to bring some of it back for us 'newbies' :)

Ibanez SR...is that a guitar?  I gotta get back to practicing one of these days ;)   modeling sucks up all my free time,  since I left the band.......or did the band leave me.....I don't recall :unsure:    it was fun while it lasted.

 

thanks for all the kind comments folks....there is so much more to come.   it's hard to recall all that went into this project.......glad I have the pictures to show.   I store all my picture on memory sticks......even if the model hits the end of it's life expectancy,   I still have something to show that.....yes,  I built it ;)     thanks as well for all the likes :)   on with the planking........

 

8-1-2012

 

the fore deck was the first area to be planked.   as was seem earlier,  I was experimenting with Annegre with a mahogany center strip.

I used the archive pen to simulate the calking.

the cap rail was painted a chocolate brown

the aft section of the pilot house was going through it's own changes as well

5adfbf208bb76_1.JPG.16bfded9db9ea2a368c7ee74b906edc2.JPG

the additions to the fore deck got some accents in mahogany

then it was time for the main deck to get planked.  the center mahogany strip continued there as well.

as can be seen,  the mahogany stripping bordered off the dance floor.

the planking was finally reaching the pilot house........it stops leaving the structures a well to fit into.

the dance floor was totally bordered off by this time.

5adfc1c2e6743_1.JPG.70d8b4492feadf906b09761d638c08dc.JPG

I was also think about what I was going to plank the pilot house floor with.

5adfc275451c6_2.JPG.c2df5475ee521d75d94cc46697827899.JPG

the interior of the pilot house was also on my mind......I continued with making a small table.   on the model,  it took on the shape of an easel,  more than a table.

5adfc2f07a41a_3.JPG.4327616ff1549838f1f55640e59db856.JPG

the engine companionway and the bottom part of the pilot house were painted in the light gray.

thank you Pat :)    I've mentioned this model enough times.   I wish a lot of my hull finishes came out as well as this one did.   it's one of my better ones ;)

the planking progressed......

5adfc867eff60_1.JPG.b0d04ae92853d1012597c7c2f09d66c1.JPG

I added other strips of mahogany to accent the dance floor

along the bulwarks were beginning to get filled in by this time.......it was almost to that point near the pilot house.   I wasn't sure if I had cemented the pilot house together at this point........I see that I haven't yet.

5adfc90385f36_7.JPG.41c3d8e7d5fd3757acc70ca31a3ba677.JPG

just as well,  since it might have been a trial to fill in around it.  I believe these are the aft cap rails.

5adfc9ee6701d_8.JPG.ccf714fe08488942d08f22fd21fd684d.JPG

I was itching to get busy on the dance floor.   I ran a few configurations through my head.   I ended up taking a piece of graph paper,  and drawing out the design.    it's the only part of the project,  that I drew a plan for.  I still have it today  :)    measuring it out,  I needed tiny squares 4 x 4 MM.......I started to cut them with this jig.

this tool was somewhat helpful....it's a pickup pen.  it has a sticky tip,  that allows you to be able to pick up small parts....Tom sent me a couple to try out.  there are a couple different size tips......they clean up relatively easy...just roll them on a piece of tape.   they're better for plastic modeling though.......sawdust clogs it up too quickly.  they did help here though....it made the task easier.

of course there was a lot of checking to be sure that they were square...........

GAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!! :o  HOLY QUALITY CONTROL!!!!!!!!  

5adfcd48109a0_7.JPG.bc3db72b22aa9620a8ec5577f85ad461.JPG

it took a bit of time,  but I managed to get them all stuck onto the sticky side of adhesive tape strips

5adfcd9fd98af_8.JPG.da9d759cdd4b1ed2ab2a905565773b34.JPG

I had done one end of the edging on the dance floor.   the squares were a tiny bit off......it made it hard to fit them in place.

5adfd258ceb93_2.JPG.f3eae2db176dc6d507ea59a92577ae21.JPG

to even them up,  I used the jig in another way.   they were all stacked inside the jig,  an the exposed side was sanded flush to the jig.   in a painstaking effort,  they were turned to another side and sanded

enough time had past......I think the cap rails had their shape by now.

time to cap off the corners

the center was filled in with a collage of the corner designs.

5adfd65302f52_4.JPG.71f7ffa0fceec483018d922bce04a182.JPG

I really should have marked this out in the beginning........it would have made it a lot easier.

from afar,  it doesn't look too bad.......

5adfd7301bb3c_6.JPG.6ec1465a0f26c5386c996cab1c61d8ee.JPG

the rest was filled in with full strip planking.......in hindsight,  it might have looked better,  if I had done the calking.

along with the easel,  I made a seat

I will need three doors......one for the pilot house,  and two for the aft cabin,  which is nothing more than a changing room for the guys and gals.  the doors were assembled.

5adfdbc197afd_7.JPG.8dda41ecea3f6dafbd524649ecdc2cd4.JPG

with the handles,  it gives me one left and two right handed doors.   the two for the aft cabin needed some signage on then to denote the gender.   I though this was kinda cute :wub:

I like to think I meant to do this,  but I had goofed.   the opening was too tall.   since I didn't plan it with any form of step up,  I will close the open area with a piece of flat stock.

the doors are in place now on the aft cabin.  I did some simulated hinges to finish them off.

5adfde282e083_19.JPG.4d509a37216229f7fc19c0ccb6e2ee72.JPG

along the bottom of the cabin,  I painted some 1/4 round molding and ran it across the deck edge.   the progress so far...........

5adfded32eb0f_20.JPG.ae3e437d0ee7220e5380a0c079847005.JPG

the cap railing is just dry fitted at the moment.  I still need to make the rest of it.  the opening above the pilot house door was closed up,  and I began to shape the roof.

I like the idea of the large windows......the interior can be seen quite well.   I plan on adding a lot of detail....probably the most I've ever done.  I hope I get to do all that I want to do ;)    more to add tomorrow :)

thank you very much for all the likes :)   I got up very early this morning........I was hoping to get the log wrapped up today,  now that I'm back on my weekend.

the portholes were painted the chocolate brown,  and filled with Testor's window maker........I think I've done this with earlier models.   this product works amazingly well for creating small windows......especially in aircraft models.   I can't count how many times I cemented in small windows,  only to turn cloudy because of the glue.   the cap rails were also cemented in place on the model.   they stop at the fore deck,  where railing will take over,  running up to the stem.

painting the fo-pah........making amends 

5ae06148ecf14_4.JPG.fc09df400b84a9713b82880767ab5ad0.JPG

the window maker starts out as a milky fluid......it will dry clear.   I've had the bottle for quite some time......haven't used it since I last was heavy into modeling.  I can't say how many years.

I believe the pilot house is assembled at this point.  the mating lines have been touched up and some sanding has been done to get the mating surface for the roof flush.

5ae0629c3f73e_8.JPG.d9ac34d169c6426417432e13cc5874c1.JPG

both cap rails are in place now

5ae062c7518f4_9.JPG.610bd8e97c38158aa88be7b2668d3f65.JPG

there was still more to add to the wall of the aft cabin.   added are a pair of lights that will illuminate,  so that folks can find their way easily.

5ae063352fa5b_10.JPG.809ecf0b4af76635f61c9467beb61993.JPG

they too are filled with the window maker.......I probably should have dabbed in some white or yellow paint inside to color the lenses.   when dry,  they can be painted on the inside......just carefully go in with a wet brush.

5ae064801ef19_15.JPG.a0941cb4ea48efcaa2e5f8334c016a15.JPG

still looks rather visible.........I'll touch it up again after the paint has cured.

there are to be six posts that will line the bulwarks,  in which to run some festive lights.   I had found a vast assortment of eyelets,  used for belts,  straps,  and shoes.   sorting some of them out {gonna be a huge task},  I chose some chrome ones to install in the deck at {as close to} equal spacing.

the hatch covers for the engine companionway were created and painted.   decorative molding was cemented around the companionway,  wheere it mates to the back of the pilot house.

mahogany was used to band the aft cabin roof edge.

mahogany was also used to line the rub rails and additional hull moldings as well.

the windows were also lined with mahogany frames.......it did come at a price though.   I had a repair job to do.

I now wish I had redone this particular part of the pilot house wall.......I was too geared into going forward {still am as a force of habit}.   the best thing to do in my mind as this point was to touch it up with paint.

continuing on with the pilot house,  I concentrated on what was to go inside.  wanting to add some instrumentation,  I started off assembling a computer screen.

it looked a bit too odd to be there..........hey Barbie........I made yas a computer!   I'll think on this some more ;)   then I went on to flesh out the dash board and ship's wheel.

5ae06fedd94d5_7.JPG.4f97a26b3fc2f755cb81c407a3886670.JPG

this was actually a punch out from the Gothenborg kit...the center cut for the tunnel.   I always save these cast off pieces.  the ship's wheel was painted at this time.   the telegraph was assembled too.

round bits of cast off material was used to make the gauge bezels.

I had copied an image of a gauge decal sheet.......I printed off a sheet of them that will last me quite a while.   a column of levers was created using a 1/2 piece of dowel and brads for the levers

continuing on with the pilot house interior.......we need a radio.  here are the raw parts that will create it.

5ae074f9ed827_1.JPG.ec9457713e512bbeb2f419a8771dfc36.JPG

adding some structure to the back wall along the roof edge.

5ae07559531a4_2.JPG.c20b0f07ce7867907aa850c19d3b83d5.JPG

the radio was assembled.....

5ae0757596cb1_3.JPG.408bc6df018edcc3f3564e1c5ed1ca1a.JPG

making the rest of the window frames......and being more careful  ;)

I came up with another idea concerning the radar screen

5ae0764532d09_8.JPG.cbc646aa79a53a78a0c787691bb818fa.JPG

I went online and found some images for ship components.   they will be shrunk to a more usable size.

5ae07696bc681_11.JPG.7ed9d8ffaad2a4ea0ec7fc6be7fef30c.JPG

more cemented in place inside.......the radio with wiring and mic,  and map sprawled out on the easel

5ae077329b0c8_12.JPG.221f057cf8d402bc47837e80c354448f.JPG

other 'wires' were added to the interior.  they will be routed elsewhere.

I decided on an overhead compartment and additional radar above.   the framework was added to attach it too.

the overhead compartment was fleshed out.

5ae079ef5421a_3.JPG.a61371f9688f7487a97075ce65af87e3.JPG

the windows were added at this time as well.   clear cello was used.   seeing this now.......I probably would have used the tinted glass {cello}.   while it might have enhanced the looks,  it might have obscured some of the detail...so I'm glad I didn't have it at that time  ;)

I use the window maker to cement the cello in place.

5ae07a9951436_6.JPG.ab9ea1b3b2d509ff6a8a825ce2a879d3.JPG

the overhead was put in place to see how it would look.  the rest of the windows will be installed later.

when I got it the way it should look,  the overhead and the on dash part was painted.

I have the plastic nav light boxes from the Nordkap booty {that's another story long lost.....I'll tell ya about it sometime  ;) }.   I didn't like them,  so I made a pair of my own.

I had attached the anchor rope to an eye bolt that I installed on the stem.   the anchor assembly is added to the model.

5ae084d031fa6_1.JPG.4723f48132eef0541c1ed7c613d53f5d.JPG

I plan to have a railing around the funnel.   I decided to use chain.....I installed the posts.

5ae0851dec493_2.JPG.dd08deb1667065bed5c41bdecc706268.JPG

the roof edge on both sides of the pilot house was beefed up a bit more,  to give a better anchor for the glue.

5ae0857d4e5cb_3.JPG.d76f6189538addb134a41bfb44aecb6d.JPG

the funnel assembly with the chain added.

the admiral and I went down to her stash of M&M stuff,  it's quite a collection.   unfortunately,  there were no figures that were to scale,  so we chose the best ones.  for the time being,  I gave them a base so they could stand up on their own.

in the interest of the model,  I decided not to leave him there though.......I have a reason  ;)    perhaps if I should do a Walking Dead boat.......maybe I can have Maggie or Darrel drive  ;)  :D

the funnel was painted silver......the chain was good,  but I don't think it's enough.  I decided to add a shield to it.   the attachment point for the shield was added to the funnel.

5ae08854467a3_2.JPG.2d15a502322230311ddfe46aaf786bcf.JPG

the roof was painted at this time.

5ae088713440f_3.JPG.bef432d071e7c40edce50606867849d8.JPG

pieces of dowel were cut,  along with some circles,  for the next addition to the model

5ae088ce4fff6_4.JPG.2c46da3e72c6b39264100d12defce004.JPG

the roof was dry fitted in place.

5ae088e63facf_5.JPG.bcce0f3f6181eea2325ee1d43b53a55f.JPG

finding the centers of the circles,  the pieces of dowel was cemented to them,  and then dry fitted on the deck

this was a huge session........my picture finger was tired after this one :)   for the table tops,  I printed up some images of M&M's - circles with an 'M' bossed in the middle.

5ae08c5c55eb7_1.JPG.8b1ba91b1de5ba655853295d8c18221b.JPG

then the set up to drill the thousand or so holes in the shield....

5ae08d1fb0426_4.JPG.7c031bac5eff189e3c3c25ba2208ce9e.JPG

the back side of the shield was sanded to remove all the drill punctures......them redrilled to clean out the holes.

5ae08d6ce6e1d_6.JPG.06ae37d5a6383129da24864b5f667d1a.JPG

then bent around a dowel to give it the curve.

5ae08d73d1230_7.JPG.b479b77636209e30409e7a77167b08de.JPG

it was then cemented on the funnel

5ae08dcec4487_9.JPG.153abd36eb3c5691310ffa1fdd893865.JPG

next was the set up for the fore deck railings

5ae08de571cb3_10.JPG.f6e89a72f7f3e7f08713fd9ee283cd29.JPG

these are the 15 mm three hole stanchions

5ae091714be5b_12.JPG.4142e31e585b185c92274a53e4f705f1.JPG

they were spaced by eye after the length was established.  I used CA to cement the stanchions in place.

thank you Ben.......there's a lot more  :)

the admiral had some cloth that had M&M racing emblems on it.   I cut up the material leaving the emblems intact.

5ae09419daa93_1.JPG.2dd73b5fe1b3ff7a000dd6b22407a3fd.JPG

hooks were added to the posts.......they will be closed when the lights are strung,

5ae09451c170b_3.JPG.b19e7fb30bde1b5aa3ecbb7ebb74f1ce.JPG

I believe the roof is cemented in place at this time....oh........wait!...no,  it wasn't!  there's still a little bit more to add to the interior of the pilot house.   hooks were added at each of the corners though.   the tables were stained,  instead of painted.....after they were wiped off well enough,  the emblems were cemented in place with white glue.

the yellow one doesn't look too good.......I waited to see what would happen when the glue dried.

5ae0957697763_8.JPG.3ec3d525ef0af6664f08c4fc9db7adc5.JPG

it did get better....good enough to use.....the others are drying as well.

5ae095a1cf6fc_9.JPG.f26c50274ece07183102736b059543b8.JPG

they were given a coat of semi gloss lacquer.........

I used Annegre to do the border around the roof......doesn't matter what I used,  it was going to be painted the chocolate brown anyway.

5ae09725bcd1e_1.JPG.50e6e874af98c18f8bd67b6ac417e735.JPG

I mentioned string'in lights.........I'll wager that you think they may be lit.  no.........would have been cool,  but I should have thought of that earlier in the project.           I found these lights in the dollhouse section at Hobby Lobby.  they looked perfect for the task.

they will terminate at a box that I need to add to the pilot house.   the border around the roof was painted.

5ae098634cb7c_6.JPG.f361a4fa26886eeddd852b58d4301d9d.JPG

cutting the M&M material to size,  I began to cover the lounge chairs with it.   I used white glue to cement it in place.
