Thank you, thank you, thank you !!!

The greatest challenge was to match, even aproximately, color of deck planking, considering I was very "clever" looking for, and experimenting with Her deck color (see post
http://modelshipworld.com/index.php?/topic/2501-cutty-sark-by-nenad-m-started-on-tehnodidakta-19711983-plans-continued-on-campbell-plans/page-66#entry192295 and further posts)

Archimedes modeling law again - if you hide your mistake under something, it will for sure raise up later in all it's weight and shine

Thinking ... It seems that I'll reach masts/spars phase sooner than I thought. Still a lot of details to do on decks, but it comes closer and closer.

And I think when finishing details on houses, first "next" thing to do has to be Her standing. If I delay with this, there is a great chance to broke something later

Thank you Cap

Thinking forward a bit ... for a change ;) ... so many questions and thoughts opened ... 

 

Among other things, figurehead

 

This is what I have got with old Tehnodidakta kit

And I`d like to make something as one of the best Serbian modeler Savo Vranac ( on MSW known as Savo1) did  for Royal William

As I wrote before, in Serbia, ship modeling is not wide spread ( or this is a small country with small number of shipmodelers ?). More people are dedicated to plane models, war vehicles, dioramas.

 

But, among shipbuilders, here are real masters, and Savo is definitely among them. Just to mention his success on Russian Championship in St. Petersburg 2012 ( Kubok Len Expo) when he got Bronze medal for

Unfortunately, Savo Vranac, even he is on MSW, is not familiar with English, so, if somebody is interested to contact him, be free to send me a PM and I`ll translate with pleasure

Thank you Nils, you and other folks are too much kind toward my messy work

I do not say messy without reason. Today, while I was making white covering for entrances of aft deck house,

post-4738-0-66625100-1448309378_thumb.jpg

and while making little windows on middle and fore house


post-4738-0-78449900-1448309462_thumb.jpg

I suddenly had feeling that something is wrong. Really wrong. A lot wrong

Looking carefully, and noticed DISASTER


post-4738-0-28444400-1448309593_thumb.jpg

On middle house, I make and mount and glued and paint roof on the place for floor! House is rotated wrong !!! What I was thinking? Obviously - nothing. No brain here, only luck of patience and luck of focus

Fortunately, I did not jet started to drill holes for windows on middle cabin.

After a while, when I calm down, and cool myself, start thinking - is there anything I can do except to make whole new house? After a while, it seems to me as logical, to try to separate roof from walls. If something crack, let's go over. If don't - hip hip hurray. Nothing to lose. And just to mention that "smart" boy glued inside structure with CA !!!!

Take my scalpel and started slow and easy. When scalpel first time entered between roof and wall first milimeter in deep, I knew it can be done

Almost full hour of mm by mm cutting with scalpel, and I succed to divide roof from wals. No damage to panels, except a few scratches on paint

Complete idiot !!!

I fixed conecting surfaces, and glued roof on its place. I hope. Dare not to look at

post-4738-0-02934100-1448309934_thumb.jpg

Yes, repainting and fine tuning is neccessary, and after that I'll decide can I live with this. Probably - yes. Three lifeboats with their standing construction go under middle house, and cover this house at all.

Tomorrow is always smarter than evening

Hi Nenad,

 

An excellent recovery is always a cause for celebration! :)

 

Been enjoying following along and your scratch built deckhouses all look wonderful. I really liked the full deck image of them all in place.

 

Cheers,

 

Nigel.

Made from veneer strips less than 1mm wide with lot of acrylic paint to harden and shape them

Maybe no more tests, drops ok enough, it seems

Time is passing slow or fast ?

Hi Nenad

 

It's not important whether the time goes fast or slow, as long as the memories are good. Judging by the photo of the hull, the memory looks sweet!

 

Cheers

Thank you Patrick and Cap. A lot of work done, a lot of time spent. And lot things and technics learned.I think I'm somewhere in front of the midlle of the road now

Today I spent a bit of my free time studding mast and yard construction, and trying to understand anything in rigging lines. There will be a lot of time for me to analyze and learn rope logic, all rigging details, all rigging parts for ship like this with ALL sails spread-ed with all ropes (and chains) that belong there. Really a big mountine in front of me

hello Nenad!    trying to catch up with my build watching.........MAN.........have you been busy!   the cabin structures came out fantastic!  no matter about that tiny pho-pah that happened........they still came out the way you envisioned them  ;)   you know.......I've been following your build from the beginning.....you've kicked yourself and pointed out some of the errors.  but I can tell you.......whose gonna notice them,  with all the fine detail you've put into her?  I love that shot of her with the structures on her decks ;)  beautiful work Nenad........the time you've spent shows......the effort gleams!  I can't wait to see her masted!  :)

 

very nice work my friend!   

 

BTW.........what's with the 1/100?    whose gonna notice a split hair :D  :D  :D

Thank you Denis for your kind and supporting words

As I mentioned somewhere earlier in my log, here in MSW there is, and has to be a place, and a space for modelers as me, who are not masters of modeling. Point is to enjoy in working, and have a great creative time which is 100^100 times better than everyday evening nailing in front of TV.

If somebody likes your work, that is nice. If don't , nice again. You love your work, and like sharing, and that counts. And if you like learning, even better when you get advice or tip or help to understand some point

When I finish deck houses and standing, a lot (but not so many) tiny little details remains, and then comes - masting

On that point really entertainment starts - masts yards and sails are essential part of look for every sail ship. Particularly clippers and tall ships as CS is/was

I also can not wait this stage. Everything before is just preparing for masting and rigging :)

Nenad,

 

I'm like you.  Not a master but having some fun building ships.  MSW is a very good place for us as there are those who know and can teach us.  And those watching, in turn, learn from our mistakes.

Roof panel of skylight on photo in post above seems to be a bit massive, so windows surface is at almost at the same level as panel surface. Something to think about before glueing

Thank you Piet. I`ll try to make surrounding surface thicker, making a new surface from veneer to overcome existing roof about 1 mm on each side, on which I`ll glue windows, and add some strips of veneer around windows and at the edge. That will allow me to round edges of surface a bit as on picture, and to level them visually to roof. I have already thinned whole windows construction to less than a 1 mm, and don`t dare to thin them more

Little improvement to my shipyard

Sorry to hear of "Old Lady" Nenad. Try not to let other people set the pace for you. Set your own pace my friend. One YOU are comfortable with.

I have to turn myself in one of my windows, and dissapear when sneezing ;)

 

No way for anybody to find me. Even two days ...

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.
