Amazing detail Doris - those decorations are very tiny!

What do you use to thin the clay? I noticed in one of your videos that you dip your finger in some liquid and use it to smooth the clay. 

Polymer clays, like Sculpey and Fimo don't work with water, so I'm just wondering?

Just when I think it cannot get any more spectacular - it does. Very beautiful work, Doris. I second druxey's note on your work with clay - excellent.

 Hello dear Sherry,

well, I do not thin the clay, I only soften it by kneading in my hand / it needs also a bit higher temperature. Then it is possible to shape the clay easily, because it is soft enough.

I dip my fingers or tools in a cold/icy water to prevent stickiness of the clay.

 

 

The satyrs look wonderful Doris B)  B) I have mine to do soon.I have already reproduced the drawing to 1/47 and these things are small!!!Probably going to carve a master from boxwood and cast them in resin,at least then I only have to struggle once :D  :D  :D

 

Kind Regards

 

Nigel

 

I believe, you will manage it perfectly, your skills are superb! I love your Caroline a lot.

 

 

Hi Doris,

The whole ship is just beautiful!!
Do you come up by yourselve with those details? Because they are great.

 

Well, all decoration is handmade by myself. I try to make the details according to plans to achieve more realistic result.

 

 

Fantastic work.  Did you make a mold for your emblems?

David B

No, all are shaped individually without the mold. I know, that using the mold could be easier for making same ornaments, but I prefer extra fine details, so i decided to make them this way. BTW, i must say, that I haven´t much experience with making decorations using mold. :blush:

 

 

 

Best regards

Doris

That ship looks beautiful. I find it amazing that it is from card.

Marc

I like this material, making models from card/paper does not  need any special tools. I have only basic tools and modest equipment for my hobby. But it doesn´t matter, I enjoy making models even so...B)

Well dear friends, these days I am making the plastic model IJN Yamato, so please be patient, I will continue with Royal caroline as soon as possible. I will prepare all masts and yards.

 

Here is a link with Yamato in Czech language ( i am a beginner with plastic models... ^_^ ) :

Your Yamato is looking very nice.  Crisp, clean and sharp.  I can't read Czech, but the pictures say it all.

Iagree with Mark.

Hi Doris!

 

Encredible build you have here!

 

I am wondering how did you make the flag look so realistic? Did you print it on a piece of paper or tissue or...?

 

Keep up te good work :D

My only disappointment is that  I haven't seen your RC build log up until now Doris, this is such a different approach.  As others have said, simply wonderful and amazing work, your technical skills are masterly, and only surpassed by the harmonious way that you bring everything together to create such a work of art.  I'll definitely be watching to see how this progresses in the future.

Doris,
Your work is fantastic, not trovsano compliments and words to express what you're accomplishing.

Good modeling and thanks again for what we're showing

Hello dear friends!

Thank you very much for your comments and kind words, I am pleased and appreciate your support a lot.

After a longer break I'm back and I will show you the continuation of my Royal Caroline scratch build.

In addition, some weeks ago I finished my second plastic battleship - USS Missouri in a scale 1:350 (Tamiya manufacturer). My previous model IJN Yamato is also finished. Here are both build logs and a video, where you can see finished Missouri.

I spent some time at the seaside in Turkey ( Mediterranean), this was a great relaxation and enjoyment for me and my husband.

Here are some pics from our stay:

And what´s new on the model.....

I have just started with masts and rigging, I try to make all these things according to plans from Anatomy of RC and also follow books and other credible information to achieve more realistic result.
