    This week I went to Gdynia to meet some friends and modellers. Meantime I visited the Maritime Museums based in Gdynia and GdaĹ„sk. I had a chance to admire beautifuly restored pre war yacht “General Zaruski”. In GdaĹ„sk I found Puck diorama made by famous Polish modeller Andrzej SadĹ‚owski. After Andrzej’s death his models dissapeared without a trace. Fortunately this masterpiece finally found [...]

    Today I opened the parcel wich was delivered recently.  It included tiny etched parts for my vessels. An hour ago I’ve finally sent the file with decals to the printing house. It’s time to come back to hulls and quarterdecks and bridges.

    I’ve finished it fifteen minutes before the deadline. I did my very best to complete Gandalf’s figure on time. I’m happy it’s over. Now it’s time get back to my ships :D

    Time is running out, thus today’s post will be really short. The ground is shaped and painted. I used Woodland acrylics. Some small parts are already placed.

  • New Year I started with small but a bit complicated project for one of my clients, who is crazy about Tolkien. Bilbo Baggin’s house is the main element of this small diorama. I made the fronts of Hobbit’s houses and cast them in resin so the doors may be optionaly opened. Those of you who would like to buy this set, please drop [...]

After the war it happily returned to Poland. Over [...]

    One of my favourite Polish pre war ships. Built in 1936, she entered the service the same year. Lost in tragic circumstances in Oksywie naval base during the first aerial attack on september the 1st. Direct hit of 250kg bomb near the funnel killed 16 men and sunk the ship instantly. The quarterdeck needs some work, but the basic framework is done. [...]

  • My very last post this year is about three small ships in my shipyard. “Pionier/Njord” is almost ready (still anchors and other small stuff is needed). “Bug/Lola” is waiting on quarterdeck assembling. The brand new “Boxer/Leopold” tug is quickly put together, just minutes ago. The fourth ship will be presented in the first post next year ;)

    The hull must be shaped, lots of small elements are missing, but the overal silouette of this tiny coaster is looking quite nice. Under the brigde I placed the element with the windows, which is prepared for English and Greek variant. Standing beside “Lola” my “Pionier I” vel “Njord” looks old fashioned. You may notice the resin figure I have sculpted and painted [...]
