You must have been a surgeon.....your tying all your lines is so perfect....I'm jealous. My fat thumbs (on all fingers) could never be that neat. Great job.

Doris,

 

wonderful Job on the Standing rigging like all your work. I noticed that you have fitted a block tackle between the foremost shroud length of every mast. Super Detail, I have learnt that this is the means to loosten the shroud when bracing the lower Yards. Wish I had known this earlier, I would have adopted that one for my own rigging.

Doris,

I think every manner of compliment has already been used here, and most deservingly so. I must tell you that several years back, I came across a video feed on Youtube of one of your models. I was drawn in like a moth to a flame. I made it my screensaver and studied it intently. Having loved tall ships since a little boy, I decided to join a modeling site and learn this craft.

Thank you for lighting the flame, for now I see.

 

Sincere Regards,

 

Bill

Hello, dear friends!
Thank you very much for your kind words and support. I appreciate all your comments a lot. I have to apologize you, I am writing so late, but I have a lot of problems mainly at work and also many duties, so I did not visit internet almost at all and unfortunately have no time for building models.
I am searching for a new and better job, so it is quite difficult time now for me, cause there are a lot of unemployed people in our country.

I believe, things will go better next months and it will be possible to continue with modelling in winter. I am going to share my work with you and looking forward to continuing.
 

Have a great time and take care
Doris

 

Here are some of last pics from the process, I have made in august.

Doris, I will add to the congratulations. Those shrouds have perfect definition of the individual ropes. Did you say what kind of thread you used for making these?

 

Mark

Hello Mark, I use mainly threads Amati and Corel.

 

 

Hi Doris,

Your rigging work looks great, love the ropes, can you tell us how you made the rigging mouse?  I'll need to do four for my Half Moon and am wondering how you did it?

THX

J

Well, it is made by turning the thin thread around the rope/stay in more layers. I also use the glue (water based) to modify the layers in a suitable shape.

Your models are very inspiring, and show how much can be done with humble materials.

Dear friends,

I wish you Merry Christmas and a happy New Year 2015. :champagne-2:

Best regards
Doris

BTW, during previous weeks I made a new model - Chebec 1:80/plastic model by Imai, and today I have just finished it. This build was primarily relaxation and enjoyment for me. Here is a thread, you can have a look, if you want:

Hello dear friends,
thank you very much for your praise and kind words. I am pleased and honored you like my work.
Sometimes modeler needs a change and this plastic Chebec was a nice touch. The kit by Imai is rarely available, because the manufacturer does not exist for many years.

 

Nice!

Jan

 Hello Jan,

I do not use Revell colours for finished painting. I used oil paints  (this is my first plastic model I have painted this way) to achieve wooden look and more realistic weathering.

 

For example:

http://eshop.koh-i-noor.eu/oil-colours/c-1129/

 

It is necessary to apply clear coat/synthetic lacquer to finish painting.

 

 

 

A belated Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you Doris :) 
 
Fabulous work on your Chebec Doris: :wub:   It is funny,I have been 'eyeing up' Heller's offering of this vessel in 1/50.It bears a striking resemblance to Le Requin.

 

Kind Regards

 

Nigel

Well dear Nigel, this Heller's Chebec in 1/50 is really superb.

I also I thought about it, but it is too large for me. Next year I am going to build La Réale by Heller in 1/75, I found this beautiful kit under Christmas tree.... :D

Well, dear friends, I have finished tops on the masts ( made of card and wood) and now I am going to continue with rigging on Royal Caroline. I have unfortunately less free time for hobbies ( because I have a new and very responsible job as a sales director in a company selling cosmetics), but I would like to continue and make models for relaxation.
