Royal William by Denis R - Euromodel - Scale 1:72


Recommended Posts

Lol, I heard a rumour that you had bought one! A little bird told me!

 

I received my Royal William a couple of weeks ago. Just waiting to complete my current model and then move on to this. I might give you a head start, so that I can learn from your mistakes!

Hi all

 

Royal William.

My first impression is that the quality of the materials are excellent, the castings are also well made, not a lot of work to be done on them.

 

I have had two extra sets of plans made, one set I have had laminated so I can use a marker pen on them and I can wipe it off as necessary.

 

What did please me was that the plans were rolled and not folded.

 

The cost of the plans and laminating came to $500nz, it was the laminating that cost the most as the plans are large.

 

Time now to have a long read and study of the plans.

 

Will have to wait till the admiral goes out before I can have a play with her ha ha.

 

Denis.

Hello Denis!

 

I can't wait to see what someone with your skills (and new toys) can accomplish with a ship as beautiful as this one, particularly after what I have seen in your Sovereign of the Seas!  And I am so very happy that I am lucky enough to watch from the very first steps and have my pencil and paper ready to take notes and learn as you go!

Hi Denis,

I was anticipating this new build log. :)  No cheating now! You have to finish the SOS first. Those were the Admiral's orders as I recall. :P Since we built the SOS together, I am really looking forward to building the RW with you. We really learned a lot from each other by swapping stuff as we went along.

Hi Denis and Vince,Starting out right with two of the same kits will create the  confidence,to quickly share ideas,problems,and be more pleasurable just as the Niagara modelers, must have felt,like being in one room,fairly instant answers depending a little on time zones,You are both teachers and learners,hope you have lots of chairs,beer etc,Your logs will be interesting to a large crowd,booking seats for two(Urmilla)Edwin

Hi Edwin and Urmilla

Denis, same with me, I will be sitting by watching.  I have this kit on the bench, (with five others, partially done), and have completed the basic carcass assembly, I look forward to your progress as this kit is pretty advanced for me, and there are several parts that I foresee having trouble with.

your mention of this new endeavor brought me to give a look see........stunning contents! ;) I'm sure you'll have a really nice time with this build.....you've acquired many techniques to do so. I did notice that on the flag sheet, the word Mordaunt......there is a ship by this name. could this kit be built to be either one of these ships? if so.....this will be the first kit that I've seen that can be built into more than one ship. of course, any kit can be done in this fashion, if the ship in mind has the same hull construction. as I've found, with slight modifications, it can be done......fitting her out can easily be done with a little research. in seeing what you have done with the S.O.S., and her upcoming conclusion, I'll look forward to your start of this fine ship :) no doubt, another fantastic build ;)

this is a feature...so far, only found in plastic kits. I used to enjoy buying these kits that had variants included. I used to save all the spare parts and decals......heaven help the model that I became discontented with ;) I don't think we'll see that happening in wood kits, much beyond flag sheets though....I would think that would influence the cost effectiveness. wood, photo etch, brass and wood fittings are counted and monitored to suit the kit subject {although, photo etch might also be an exception}.

Hi Denis,

 

I am very excited to see your first pics of the build and to read about your expierences with a Euro Model kit. I will also do a Euro Model soon (when I finished the Royal Caroline, but this will need some more time than I thought) and I am very interested in this company. I saw the pics of the parts in the box - they look very well. And the plans are some kind of lgendary for their qualitiy and details.

 

I will follow your log...

 

Best wishes

 

Max

 

BTW - I dont dare to build two model at the same time... :)
