The last production of Gemma 1863 is nearing completion, but due to the limited space at home, which is occupied by a large number of tools, it will be difficult to store when finished; So stop the rigging for a moment and start work on a new theme, Young America 1853. This is also one of the five all in house sailboats I plan to build in the future; I only bought the first two copies of this book, and appreciate that the author's good subject matter can be shared with you, hopefully through my craft, to recreate the brilliance of the original work.Thank you for your attention,Also wish to give positive advice。

Great subject to do hwy; I am sure Ed will be thrilled to see you making this model.  With your skills I am sure you will do a very creditable job.

 

cheers

 

Pat

Thank you for your encouragement. Mr. Ed's design of the boat is excellent; I also hope to be able to reproduce the details with my own efforts.

So fast!  Do you have a team of assistants? 😀

Ha, ha. Actually, I'm a very independent person. You don't rely on other people to do what you love. Promote "efficiency" , "accuracy" and "distinctiveness" . In my 20 + years of amateur model making, I have completed 104 plastic models of various subjects in a maximum of one year. Because you love it, you're in it. No less than 10 hours a day in your room!:dancetl6:

What are we witnessing here?

We are witnessing mastery, we are witnessing the highest degree of miniature shipwright carpentry that I have ever seen, or IMA, has ever been witnessed or recorded.

To begin with, (If that can even be accomplished),  how does one come by and acquire an overwhelming collection of specialized, extremely well manufactured tooling, especially designed for such an adventure?  That is my first bewildered question, and secondly, the skill and acuity, coupled with an extreme control over time management must be characteristics of an extremely disciplined individual....who on the planet can master all of these so successfully?  What species of individual are we in the presence of?

 

I'm beyond impressed...on so many levels....that I can hardly articulate the appropriate words of astonishment!

 

I'm glued to this thread to its completion or until my heart gives out...…….

First of all, thank you for your appreciation and attention. I'm 52 years old, From Beijing, China;  a former professional gymnast, and now a teacher. Because I have a lot of time, amateur likes to do various models for 23 years, in order to be able to do better, self taught a variety of basic processing skills and at least 10 years of practical experience. Most of the works are made of plastic and metal materials and have been transformed, covering a wide range of subjects (all are static models) . This also laid the foundation for my later sailboat building, although I had less than five years of sailboat building experience. My personality is a very demanding type of work, which is difficult for many people to understand. I set myself the goal of completing at least five of my favorite sailboats in the eight years leading up to my retirement, as well as designing and building special tools as needed in the production process, most of these tools are not available or even unique on the market, but they have greatly improved my productivity and accuracy. Perhaps a little more personal inspiration, coupled with years of hard work, has allowed me to show a certain ability. I don't like working with other people. After all, everyone has different perspectives and skill levels. Can't agree on a lot of things. As a hobby, I also get a lot of fun from it. I hope to show more of my work in the future.

What the H**L......Wait!

How are you producing these members...what was your process for creating the pumps and windless...everything is far too clean and shows no signs of soldering or casting.

The end results are amazingly astounding....perfection in miniature metallurgy........

 

Where are your fabrication steps.......?  Your work is as perfect as can be imagined...but you are leaving out the manufacturing steps...Is that by design?
