April, 2018

  • Today, I’ve got nothing to say. Pictures tells the whole story. Both ships are waiting on the ensigns, while I am waiting untill matt Humbrol varnish will be dry and cured.

    Short photo relation from my workshop. “Achilleas” is fixed to the plasticine handle.  It’s ugly but useful way to finnish the model. The railings and other metal stuff is glued to the body. Now it’s time to wash the ship and to add the masts and rigging. Did I mentioned I hate this ;)

    After a short brake I am returning to 1/700 ships. You may find some pictures of two Polish ships – “Nurek” (Diver) and “Smok” (Dragon). They are assembled abd painted. I fixed the colours with a thin coat of gloss varnish. I must add the stairs on the tug, wash the surfaces and add the rigging.

  • Before I finished the pair “Pionier/Njord” I suddenly realized how strange this ship were. With the hudge bow, and the missing aft. But as I started to add the railings and the whole rigging the shape of the ship became even cute. Tommorow I am starting to finish three coasters from Westerbroek :)

  • I’ve got a strange feeling, the longer I am doing these projects the distance to the goal is longer and longer. Maybe that’s why I am posting the pictures so frequently to have the proof I am moving forward. Today I’ve finnished basic paintings and putting decals on all of my merchant ships. Some of the colours looks over saturated but after washing [...]

  • Yesterday I put basic colours on “Achilles” and “Pionier I”. Today for the firs time I put the dacal with the name of the port, which is a very special place for me. I wonder if anyone made a ship based in Gdynia in 1/700 scale. I placed the whole decal set on Achilles. So far I am very happy with the result. [...]

  • To speed up the modelling I’m going to work on five ships simulaneously. Three modern coasters are at the very first stage of the process, while Pionier/Njord they have base colours put on the body. Because of malfunction of my airbrush I was forced to put colours on Njord’s hull with a brush and than fix it with three thin coats of acrylic [...]

  • The last stage of work. After adding some washes from AK I covered the whole model with a coat of clear matt Humbrol varnish. Than I used my own hair to made the rigging. Fortunately I’m not bald or gray haired so I’ve got a lot of good stuff for the future As an ensign I used a small piece of polystyrene (0,18mm) [...]
