It's great to see you back, Patrick.  I think all of hit a mild "burnout" point at some point.   Nice work on the engine room.   Will the engine live there or is this the machine room for all the services?   

Hi Mark -aaah. Yep, “burnout” was the term I was searching for, but I couldn’t quite remember it. It was on the tip of my tongue  when I was writing the post...

 

The actual two engines are there, but you can’t actually see them as they’re obscured by all of the pipes and what not. 

 

Thanks

Great to see you back Patrick; and even better to hear you sounding 'chipper' about things.

Hi folks.

 

Thanks for for all of your comments and feedback.  

 

Here is another quick update on Genesis. With the engine room basically complete, I’ve now started on the internal cabins on the lower deck. It all looks a bit messy at the moment, but pls bear in mind that nothing is glued down yet. Like the external paint job, it’s all still very much ‘work in progress’.

 

Have a great week.

 

Cheers

 

Patrick

Hi Patrick.  I'm running out of superlatives - all I can say is WOW!  For a 'work in progress' the paint looks really good.

Hi Frank 

 

No need for superlatives   Just having you onboard and able to enjoy the journey is good enough!

 

All the best😀

 

Cheers.

Nice details; have you had any sales enquiries yet - I am sure there are a few billionaires who would like to add this to their toy collection.

 

Ooops, sorry, forgot this was a model.

 

cheers

 

Pat

No offers yet...still waiting...waiting...😀

Hi folks. Well, well, well...Genesis’ owner just happens to be a serious art-collector. You know, the real arty-farty type.
 
So, in keeping with that theme, I’ve adorned the Lower Deck’s cabins and passageways with quite a few paintings and wall-hangings. I reckon it brings the whole Lower Deck to life. I hope you like it too.
 
Oh, and once again...damn these close-up photos.  They accentuate each and every blemish and error.  I swear that the detail looks great from 2 metres away😏 ( rather than close-up). 
 
Have a great weekend.
 
Cheers
 
Patrick

Patrick, It looks like your yacht owner scored a Jackson Pollack triptych and a  Keith Haring. Nice job!

Patrick, he could consider flogging his art collection and investing the proceeds in a sensible / stylish classic yacht. I see he / she isn’t into classical art. I’m not really surprised!!!!

You need to find the crappy photo setting on your camera, it is great for washing out the detail. All my cameras come with this as the default setting.

 

Amazing detail, just love it.

Hi Keith

 

Thanks for the compliments, but....Say what?????  If your camera has a ‘crappy default setting’, man oh man, I’d hate to see the photos of your model when it’s really in focus!  😉😉

 

Heheh. 

 

Have a great weekend. 

 

Cheers. 

 

Patrick

I see no blemishes or errors, Patrick. And yes, I'm wearing my glasses and screen zoom is at 115%.

Thanks Mark. We’re always our own worst critics, aren’t we. The thing is,. That at this teeny tiny scale, even half a millimetre out stands out like a sore thumb.

Nice going paddy, I see the owner likes reproductions ... no matter, would be a sin to keep them in such small spaces anyway ;) 

Hi Carl. Yep, cheap reproductions, but what the heck, the originals are safely stored away in the safe at the owner’s mansion.  😂

Nice additions Patrick.  It's easy to forget the scale you're working in until the giant thumbnail shows up in one of the photos.

Thanks Frank

 

The old giant thumb comes in very handy from time to time😉

 

Enjoy the rest of your weekend. 

 

Cheers. 

 

Patrick

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.
