Kids-----I think they're the same all over. None of us older guys can understand them. Like they're from another planet. :P

 

Faced with simillar ideas as tatoo, I remembered me as hipy with long hair (believe or not, I had hair once upon a time), psyhodelic music, sitting always on floor, picking my guitar everyehere ... Flower power etc etc ... On that time, we were from another planet for our parrents ... And life learned me - everything will be ok, just let them be mad for a while, they have right to be young and insane, just as we did, but in their own way

As I can see, CS fleet runs tonight and captains are busy, facing with problems here and there

Same is in my shipyard, a lot of works finished tonight ( there were some unknown working ants appearing from nowhere helping me )

Roof and floor moldings added, also at corners etc etc

I was satisfied with look and feel, apply thin layer of putty, and fine sanding with 280 paper granulation starts. After that, thin layer of acric as "putty" and another sanding turn, this time with granulation 360

After that, dust works done, and paint works started with two thin layers

Finaly, aft deck house is done

That's a good looking deck-house Nenad.  I think I recognize those "working ants", and Piet reported some of his has jumped ship.  :P

 

Thanks George. Looking for a tiny part of molding under workbench, under old forgotten shoes, I found a little illuminating  teleport gates, designed for working ants, so mystery is partially  un-hidden. Gates are to small for me to check another side - who is their owner ( I suspect Piet)  ;)

 

 

Very nice work Nenad. "Patience".... You asked? That little deck house required an awful lot of patience my friend.

Cheers

 

Mainly, I agree Dave, a loooot of time needed to do this, and at one moment patience simply disappear, when portholes and doors came to line. Then I saw Michael`s work ( http://modelshipworld.com/index.php/topic/74-bristol-pilot-cutter-by-michael-mott-18-scale-pof/page-62#entry363039) and ... what to say ...

 

 

Lovely work, Nenad.  You and your worker ants must be very pleased!

 

Cheers

 

Patrick

 

Thanks Patrick. Mainly - yes, enough to keep it as final solution. That acrylic paint will get darker from time. Same level of simplification on all three decks, same look and feel, same making method  . And if anybody will look at this details, I think attention will be on roofs where boats will be, where skylight will be.

 

 

Looking good Nenad and thanks for sending a few of your working ants over  ;)

 

Cheers,

 

Look around Piet, you will also find a little teleport gates around your workbench. My ants are marked blue, and I suggest you to mark your red, not to stir workers  :10_1_10:

 

 

Looking excellent!

 

Thanks Peter for nice comment. I am carefully watching and learning from your rigging. Do you need some ants or have some to send to us ?

(I don't know what's up with the ants!?

They have not been doing any work for two weeks now!)

Starting with "roofing" of aft deck house

Surrounding molding was kind of testing of my skills. Not bad

Planking with 2,5mm strips of veneer, already seen here, and done and re-done couple of times in my build. This time, much better and more precise

2,5 mm are a bit out of scale. Measuring and comparing with photos show planks width of 1-1,5 mm, which can be done, but in my opinion, it would not give proper "planking look" of roof planks. So I decided to shrink width to 2,5 mm, which is less than plank width on decks, just for contrast purpose

Good job Nenad. I see you've decided to build her after the Portuguese modified her.

 

Coming along nicely :cheers:

 

Rob

 

Hm hm hm, not exactly.

 

Rather mix of C-plans and look from photos from internet.

 

Her destiny is to look nice in glass cage in my living room, and considering I have not enough skill and knowlidge resources to make her exactly as She looked in exact period, I chose details I like

 

Thanks for nice words

About the NRG

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.
