HMS Victory by dafi - Heller - PLASTIC - To Victory and beyond ...


Recommended Posts

Thank you guys :-)

 

I just realised the different depth of the steps accidentally after looking at the pictures of the V. in P. a one-million-seven-hundret-twenty-five-thousend-eight-hundert-and-twenty-three times ...

 

When I then - with the eye being aware by this - found the same disposition on a contemporary model it was clear: I WANT THAT!!!

 

;-)

 

Cheers, Daniel

Thank you Sirs, very appreciated

 

@amateur

 

No Jan, not yet ;-)

 

Surprisingly, the lantern basically came out of the box, only the arm/holder were replaced by some of my etch parts. Only transformation was the little door, but this was only tree strokes with the file to get rid of the glazing bars and three tiny bits of sprue for hinges and lock.

Let me tell you a story ...

 

... it started with a funny idea ...

 

... we should meet again ...

 

... oh yes sure ...

 

... where? Augsburg would be a nice place, its in the middle of everybody from the south of Germany, half way between Munich and Ulm. Let´s take March, the 8th, good with the holidays.

 

"Who´s gonna come?"

 

Me-me-me-me ...

 

... oh, nice, we won´t be alone ...

 

...-me-me-me-me-me-me-me-me-me-me-me-me...

 

... great the place will be full ...

 

...-me-me-me-me-me-me-me-me-me-me-me-me-me-perhaps-me-me-me-me-me-me...

 

... slight worries about the size of the venue are appearing ...

 

...-me-me-me-me-me-me-me-me-me-me-me-me-me-me-me-me-me-me-me-me-me-me...

 

... so until now there are 57 (fifty seven) confirmations plus 1 perhaps !!!

 

So by tomorrow Lunchtime we will meet for our "small" gathering:

https://www.google.de/?gfe_rd=cr&ei=m9YW...rtshaus+am+lech


 

Do not know yet how to fit everybody plus the models.

 
Models?!?
 

Did anybody think about the space for the models ?!? There will be more than 20 models present!

 

And among will be (only MSW Members mentioned, please excuse if I missed anybody)
- Tarjack and his Royal Caroline 1749 in bone and a dockyard cross cut model of an engl. 74
- schiffebastler with Amerigo Vespucci
- dafi with his small little round one with the black and ochre lines that make appearance slim
- Woodpecker with his spanish schebeck 1:50
- Achilles with HMS Queen Charlotte 1790 1:48
- Rack with fregate Thetis
- Alexander with his HMS Sphynx, modell and plans, plus plans HMS Anson
- Archjofo  La Creole 1:48
- AVBiker Sovereign of the Seas
 

... and many others. 

 

WOW-WOW-WOW

 

Everybody is already starting to get very nervous.

A feeling almost like Christmas :-)

 

We will keep you posted :-)

Cheers and thank you all for the feedback! More impressive than the models were of course the personalities behind - meeting plenty of the builders in person for the first time, after having been corresponding already for ages with them.

If you need any help, please feel free to contact me :-)

 

 

Cheers, Daniel
