Atttempt No 4. and that is final solution. I just can't do it better. (for now 😁).

Top and the bottom are soldered, another little beadt are glued with CA. Acryl paint will harden all structure.

Thank you, Vlad. As I said somewhere in this, I think, the slowest build on MSW log, couple of years ago, I made terrible mistakes with lines of main deck, so, I decided to overdetail Her Majesty, to try to "pull up" whole thing. That approach lead me to this ... ant work ... (which is, really - nothing, comparing what, for instance, MSW member Igor Sky do!!!!)

However, it is fun to test your own limits, and to learn.

Thank you for watching and following

Your ant work is beautiful and interesting in many ways thanks for sharing it. i did make crucial miatakes on my path and i am not shy to admit it. why should i be? i dont like taking this hobby as some kind of competition in the moment i do passion and fun dies for me. im happy i can elarn from skilled ones but i think boat of everyone is just bwutiful in its own artisticalyl and technically way because everyone is different. fair wind to our cape horners :);) Vlad

Hello to all

Just to say Hi, and to declare that I am still live and here. We were all without Covid for now.

After flood, things go out of control. All of works lasted about two months, and finished with 3 loong weeks in September, litterary laying whole day with terrible back pain, and next 3 months with medium pains ... there are some things ( moving cabinets and furniture alone by myself) that I still can do (in my 62 years), but I COULD NOT do that any more ... learned on really harder way ... 

So, any work except light office work was unpossible for me to do, considering home works. Even vacum cleaning returned me to bed. 

Last two months it seems that I am 90% recovered, so I hope to continue with yards and masts. And with vacum cleaning :D

In mean time, Hot-head passed his very last bachelor exame on Architecture Faculty, and there is only bachelor thesis to do, AND THIS IS THE END OF HIS STUDY !!!! 

Be well and safe, my friends!

Good to see you back on your model! Keep going! 

Than you, and wellcome to my journey. Day is short for my chatacter (monkey see monkey do) and for my 100 hobbies, office work, home work garden work and social life. I hope I'll have time to move forward faster. But, there are always chalenges arround, such a this song I deadly want to know to play and singIMG-2dd3dda28ba0592219cc7656829efe63-V.thumb.jpg.ad65de2b1da37d3515526df922f8f8ac.jpg

Good choice, Nenad.  Days like that seem to be rare but worth the effort go out and enjoy them.

 

Hi dear friend, you are right, as usual ;)

Finaly, one day worm enough to do some bussiness out of flat. Until lunch, I was doing homeworks (londery, cleaning, cooking, grooming Rhea etc etc) and some yard-works (cuttung pampas and another grass, taking out flower pots from rooms to terace etc etc), with plan to go with her to a loong walk over Belgrade Searhea.thumb.jpg.4392316694cd2f4814960c8628c0e066.jpg

 

But, fortunately or not, as a consequence of issolation during my Covid sheet, I was so tired, that I quit from that idea pretty easy. Take a little nap, a nd a long rest with some ness coffee, and decided to finish neccessary paper works to go forward with my model. So, daily plans were converted toward Her Majesty`s needs, and after three hours of "playing" with Adobe Illustrator CS6, working plans with shape and right dimensions for all three masts and all nine parts of them are finished.

 

And I can say, we are on a god path to upper works above deck

Just to mention ... since I don't have a lathe, I get the conical shape of the mast by improvisation - I put a measured piece of wooden stick in the jaw of the drill, and then at low speed, using knives and sandpaper, imitating the lathe, and peel the wood to the required dimensions. Accurate diameter measurement to 1/10 mm at every step is implied.
Ah, that smell of sawdust and wood dust ...

Idea is to finish in wood all nine parts of masts, and after that to "dress" them with all miniature parts, and to paint them all in same way.

I couldn't stand it ... always around Easter, fake wooden eggs appear, just born for playing with engraving ...
And so ... instead of continuing with the masts, Nenad played and engraved his own fingers,  and one of this little eggs. All in all, useful as a one of lessons toward serious engraving exercise, that awaits me when the figure-head comes to line180450456_10214367356897116_7675859266788187268_n.thumb.jpg.ae64d789364bc02f4079a581612c1307.jpg181213883_10214385549231913_1683639850688369602_n.thumb.jpg.e91dadbb3ba7189660a5b4254f9247d3.jpg181237052_10214385550431943_3246000713995258006_n.thumb.jpg.d9a5a5f7480325a8ed969576ea79952d.jpg181249873_10214385549551921_8939972395911500658_n.jpg.c8f1c607e6cebc55753239fa5a75bf07.jpg181788223_10214385549791927_520104472471469286_n.thumb.jpg.08fc95128fc3b3a2a59c9c768e21d95c.jpg
