    IMHO the most rewarding part of modelling was always designing the prototypes, with fitting, technological aspects and all that stuff. Glueing and painting is something I treat as necessery evil. Today I cast first Duch Coasters. I want to make three verisons from three different countries. “Achilles” from Greece has shortened funnel, while Dutch “Lola” and Polish “Bug” they have part of the […]

    While the first “Nurek” is hardening in the mould i decided to clean my disk up. In a forgotten folder I found a bounch of my old pictures from “Musee de la Marine” in Paris, placed in monumental Trocadero complex. BTW probably the very best place to to look up to Eiffel Tower. So I found a sequence of pictures of one of […]

    Short report from my “shipyard” First m/s “Pionier I” is cast. Tommorow I am starting the assembling with photo-etched parts. Secondly – I had to redesign the reflector for “Smok/Rixhöft”. Now it’s size is perfect for the crow’s nest. Last but not least – “Nurek” will be moulded this evening. Ain’t she sweet… 🙂

    Today was the day I felt a bit like a father in the delivery ward while I was unmolding the first model of ORP “Smok” (Dragon). With the shaking hands I started to try the elements together. In a few minutes I realized model number 001 was well cast. Besides I am a week late I am very happy with the result. Tommorow […]

    Doesn’t matter if it’s 1:1 or 1:700 scale, outfitting is always time consuming and difficult process. Constant probes, glueing small parts together using PVA glue and dismonuting is the only way to make sure the final model would be perfect. It is also an art of compromise. “Leopold” is practicaly finished. The bridge is ready as well as lifeboats and funnel. I’ve also […]

    Unfortunately the progress is rather small due to my two terrible mistakes. Firstly I had to start the “Pionier’s” hull once again. Damn, that was painful. Secondly “Leopold’s” upperdeck had to be redesigned and moulded properly, so she is still incomplete. “Lola” is also delayed. The one who is (so far) my “Lucky ship” is “Nurek”. All parts fit together, the hull is […]

  • “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 […]
