Returning from Zlatibor Mountine, before I go to Germany to visit Princess in Chemnitz where she live and work, I continued to spend my vacation days doing ... hmm ... almost everything which bumps on my head

Considering little progress on Her Majesty

Signal lights - done

Little beasts, I almost lost my eyes somewhere in my man's cave

But, it seems ok to me

Forgot to mention

Eye-bolts  are point where is (for me) impossible to stay on scale. According to photo from deck, they are about 5-7cm dia, which means that on scale 1:100, that should be 0,5-0,7mm dia, which is too small, and useless for any purpose on model

So, I decided to oversize them a bit, making them from 0,5 Cu telephony wire, with 1mm inside dia

busy with the small parts......realize though that even in kits,  eye bolts and some stuff are out of scale..........but we still use them ;)    the chimney could be smaller.....I'm sure your in the process of making a new one.    the trials and tribulations of scratch building..........

 

doing a great job as usual........not sure of the mistakes your trying to cover up.........as I've forgotten already  ;)   build what makes you happy!

Thank you for your interest, Denis

My work flow very slow, so it passed a long way I was talking about my big mistakes from begining of build, which, if you can remember, were appointed to "lost hull lines". Particulary, consequence is that whole deck is, let`s say - twisted :rolleyes:, and when I realise that, it was too late to correct this, and needs very very very deep surgery , even starting over from zero :default_wallbash:. Maybe it could be better solution, maybe not. In that stage of build, I didn`t have Dremel and other tools I can use to correct this, on relative easy way.

So, here we are, where we are

I think that in mean time, I succed to make all other things acceptable and, I fell free to say, nice looking, so, exit was in over-detailing, and pay attention to details as much as I am able to do, with vile idea to cathch attention of people who look at Her in different direction ;)

Just to remember, and as "how not to do" lesson to one who use only a bit of brain as I did, here are the pictures that show consequences - rail on fences has to be paralel to the deck, and in my case .... OMG ... arrows show where you can brightly see mistakes

(Just ignore crowds on deck)

However, lesson learned, having in mind that, from mentioned reason, I will have some kind of devil`s party, when i start with ropes

That looks lovely and a wonderful place for quiet and thinking.

Just like that, Mark. From spring of that little river to fall, there are many cascades and sweet ponds, surrounded with walking paths in almost wildnes arround. There are couple of restourants near with accomodation bungalows ... Almost as Plitvice lakes in Croatia, but much smaller. Every time I have some bussines near, I spend afternoon and night there relaxing myself ... no cell signal and no internet !!!!!!!!

Sometimes, I ask myself - can building of Her Majesty be a bit faster?

Answer is … hmm …

Beside regular daily activities ( time very demanding job, regular home works), this mad man (me), is running in bilion hobbies, and has billion interests

 

Paralell with ship-modeling, there are: painting&drawing, collecting sorting and listening to music ( more than 90GB on my PC, with more than 12.000 mp3 files), playing a guitar more than 40years, reading books ( Yalom, Staring at the Sun is actual now), writing and publishing short stories (more than 130 published until today on my FB page), history research (WW2 mainly), cooking, gardening, walking on long walks with my Bobtail Rhea, makeing furniture, modeling in wood and siporex, computers and mobile Phones, chess game, sudoku extreme, travelling in Serbia and arround, swimming, photography, theater, opera, ballet, cinema …

 

And my days are very short 

 

So, my last project which occupies me this days … power of transparency of acrylic paints

Knowing me, I`ll be back soon to Her Majesty

And finaly, all decks are full, boats on their places with all spare yards all arround, also glued on their place

Only boat and anchor davits left to be mounted, but I am thinkin about solution to left them for later work, to avoid damage during rope work which is in front of me
