  1. Thanks to all for your really nice comments and likes. @ Steve: For the sea-scape I painted a sheet of transparent paper with different acrylic colours (blue, green, brown and a bit of white). The sheet was glued onto a piece of waste wood. The surface is an ordinary "sea foil", which I bought at a model train store. Fast and easy solution.
  2. Thank you for kind comment. CFP is a one-man business owned by Horst Mürell. I am not familiar with the terms and conditions for delivery outside of Germany. Just contact him by email and he will surely reply and send an offer. To try out his models you can download an Admiralty 61,5 ft. MFV for free on his site. Print, cut and glue... Thomas
  3. Hi, I have finished a small paper model of WW II Orkney steamer "SS Earl Sigurd" published by german publisher CFP (Coastal Forces in Paper Kind regards Thomas
  4. Nice to see you all on board. @ Michael: Although I'm not going to paint it, it won't be a clean paper model. There are lots of templates for the use of wire, some metal will join the paper model. And - I will build the waterline version. Tom
  5. I will stay tuned in, really interesting. Looking forward to your way of realization. Tom
  6. Thanks a lot. The card is finn card, 1 mm thick. It is from an additional, model-specific laser cut set, which I bought together with a brass gun barrel set. The model itself has only templates to glue to 1-mm-card on your own. I wanted to save my fingers from cutting that card, so I decided to buy the laser cut parts. Tom
  7. Hi at all, I have noticed the start of some Dreadnought builds during the last days. Well, I don't want to stand back and get started with a report, too. This model is released by polish publisher "Maly Modelarz". It is rather detailed and - hopefully - will bring a lot of fun. First of all, the card frame of the hull had to be mounted and glued. I have added decks and parts of the superstructure. Did not glue them yet, since I will have some work on the deck's surfaces. The width of the planks and their colour isn't that satisfying. I am going to replace them with newly drawn "wood". Kind regards Tom

    Nick, I am visiting your thread from the very beginning. Love that milestone of warship technology. And... your work is pretty much appreciated. Very beautiful, thumbs up! Thomas

    Really good-looking model. I love the pictures, too. Best regards, Thomas
  13. I have revised the shock absorbers, this should be the final version.
  14. I have mounted the mirrors and the front suspension on the right side, this one I did just provisionally. There is still some work to do on it.
  15. Lil' more progress on the cockpit. I bent an ordinary nail to a roll bar and used foamed rubber for the head support. Hi Brooker, thanks again for your helpful comments. Sometimes I do sand card, after having hardened with CA glue. Well, and sometimes, it works. Best regards Tom
