King of the Mississippi by Adrieke - FINISHED - Artesania Latina - Scale 1:80 with LED lighting


Recommended Posts

Hi Adrieke,

 

It's good to see you back. Luckily I had the same pictures as used for the MSW site on my private website and restored my built log, however without the comments. Keep good courage and within soon we are at the same level as before the crash.

 

Best regards

John

pictures of the assmebly and planking of the hull

 

at this time i had found out i didnt have enough to plank the whole hull due to the fact that the planks are only 5 mm wide and not 6 mm . the first of the errors i encountered

 

also the assembly of the boiler and engine room on the first deck. second error here is that the slots to fit the boiler room in the first deck or not positioned correctly. soem people made the room a bit longer i chose to just cut the front bit off and cover that hole as moaking th eroom longer meant the top wouldnt line up with the second deck

 

was also working on the stateroom of the second deck. i have undone all things i have done to it as i have decided to add led lights to it so i wil need to scratch build windows and doors

to lay the fishbone pattern i drew some lines on the deck to make sure i kept it straight.

to cut all the planks to the same length (50mm) i made a liitle gig

third error the holes for the big smoke stacks dont line up

 

the last picture is the little jig i used to caulk the edges of the planks with a black pencil

pictures showing the planks that i had to make longer to cover up the mistake . since no one could find it i guess i was pretty succesful. althoug someone pointed out that th epattern was not completly in the middle and he was right ( only 1 mm off so p[retty good for him to spot it )

 

planking and trenailing on deck 3 where done too

 

also did some painting of the paddle wheels and the doors and windows which are now obsolete

another mistake the closing bars are way to wide so i cut and sanded them to the correct size

also the parts that hold up the bars is not correct and should have been made from 3x4 instead of 4x5 wood

 

started painting the smoke stacks and benches

 

afterwards noticed that the brass rings didnt fit on the smoke stacks as they are around 11.7 instead of 12 mm in diameter

Hi Adrieke,

 

Sorry to hear of your father. Hope he will recover soon. Assume these are the circumstances that the geographic distance is a barrier not being able to step just on the bike and pay him a visit.

 

Best regards

John

for now that wil have to do but i am planing to go in a few months and see him and maybe even bring my wife as he has never seen her in real.

Adrieke,

 

Sorry to hear about your father.

 

Do visit him. It's important, even at that distance you will not like yourself if you won't and something unexpected does happen.

hey Wim

your riverboat looks fantastic. hoping i will get her looking like that

 

yesterday night i did a bit of painting on the paddlewheel .just need to finish that assembly before i will finaly glue on the second deck. afterwards i though t il have a bit of a start on the main stairways

 

after a bit of measuring i came to the conclusion that the side parts are not completly correct. the gaps are way to deep so that the side of the steps are visible through it.

 

i had a look at the builds on here and could see this fact in one of them

i made a little drawing to show what i mean

i am finaly getting somthing done again

 

first i cleaned up the small workbench i have because it was getting cluttered with all the tools an dbits of left over wood

 

i am painting the last parts of the paddle wheel assembly

 

also glued some strips of wood aginst the ceilign of the first deck. this should prevent any light escaping

 

i will need some more clamps before i cna glue it on properly

Hi Adrieke,

 

Indeed, if you want to do a proper job you need a proper workspace, otherwise it all ends up in a mess. You did a good paint job on the rod arms, I  like the contrast of red against black.

 

Regards

John

Hi Adrieke,

 

I agree with John, a nice,clean workspace will work the best ( don't look at my workspace at the moment)

 

The rod arms are nice.

I have still a few paint jobs left…interested?

I can imagen that Adrieke…… 

I'll do it then by myself…..

Just read about your father.

Hope everything goes well for him.

And Skype is a great thing when you are living at the other side of the world.

Then you can talk and seeing each other.

Then it becomes a small world!

Long live the Internet.
