ship

  • 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 :)

  • 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) [...]

  • Today I’m going to show the penultimate stage of modeling my “Leopold” tug. Now the ship is placed behind the glass like Golden Fish after it was brush painted with Vallejo acrylics and than airbrushed with gloss acrylic varnish. Model is made without any extra parts or upgrades. Decals are under a thin coat of varnish. Last stage will include aplying the set [...]

  • This afternoon I spent on preparing “Pionier I” and “Njord” for future painting. One of the most important elements for this models are the photo-etched parts over the bridges. By the way I placed the masts in their holes, and prepared the second tug, this time “Leopold” for painting. To be honest, my skills as far as photo-etched parts are concerned, are average, [...]

  • “Frenchmen” – it’s a colloquial name of five classic tramp steamers bought in French shipyard Chantiers Navals Français by Polish Merchant Navy in 1927. They served luckily before and during the II WW with one exception. S/s “Toruń” was scuttled and in Gdynia in 1939 and after the Polish campaign used by the Germans. After the war she 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 [...]

  • Before the II WW small shipyard in Westerbroek near Groningen was specialized in building coastal vessels. Poland ordered in 1938 three such ships. Only one was completed before the outbreak of the war and named “Bug” (named aftere the river in eastern Poland). Two sisters ships – “Lola” and “Westerbroek” stayed in Nederland and soon were captured by Wehrmacht. After adaptation both became [...]

  • Working simultaneously on a couple of ships, I’ve just finished the set of windlass and bitts.
