    Tiling goes on.... and will go on for a bit longer Thanks for watching Mick
  2. Danton, Hobby Boss, 1:350

    Second streak and more masking...... Cheers Mick

    Hull plating is going on here Rob, what will come out of it ... time will show

    Off we go then: Phase I on one streak, first from the keel: With the colour used: Movable masks in place: Phase II: With the colour used: With masking off, Phase III won't happen until the whole underwater part of the hull won't reach Phase II stage.... so more less 2-3 weeks ahead Thanks for watching Mick

    Yup Top and bottom are long pieces going along the streak, short ones are just movable pieces of masking tape and paper mask, protecting from over spray. One at a time and then move along. Hull is started, I can take some pictures of stages of the process if anyone is interested. Cheers Mick

    Bottom colour and plating test on my lab bottle Now time to transfer that onto the hull. Thanks for watching Mick

    Now, enough of time wasting Time to move into black counter-offensive and then to colours... That's what it all was about... more-less Vive la Republique

    Thanks gentlemen, thats not over yet. There's two more layers of plating above what's done to be painted on . As for the porthole rigols its nice monotonous job that doesn't involve thinking... my favourite type The ones over the portholes do not come moulded and the ones obove the 'doors' I shaved off, they were kinda thick.

    Bottom row and armour belt done and dusted, time to move up.
  10. I agree with the Regina Elena wholeheartedly

    Nice relaxing work, just to mellow in after Christmas brake... about 100 left Cheers Mick
  12. Austro-Hungarian ones, like Radetzky would be better than American ones
  13. For the rigging I'd recommend either 0,06mm stainless steel wire, you can get it fron The Crazy Wire Co, in action looks like that: or Uni Caenis 20 Denier Thread, that's available from fishing shops, it's used for tying flies. I got 200 yard roll for about 5 quid Looks like that: Have fun I'm lloking forward to see this little gem finished. Cheers Mick

    Sprayed Tapes off, generally turned out OK, little bits to correct here and there, but nothing serious. This picture shows ( more less ) the purpose of the whole exercise, before touching it with sandpaper ( clearly visible ridge ) After first swipe with 1000 paper, still not ready, but clearly better Thanks for watching Cheers Mick

    Negative of the bottom half of the hull. Tomorrow I'm spraying Thanks for watching Mick
