  1. Hi Guys, the deck is ready, including bow rigging. Now it is time to go up! Rear railings are missing. They will appear once mizzen mast is fixed. Some hanging ropes from the bowsprit wait for the foremast, TBC... Regards
  2. Hi Guys, an update with bow part of the deck and a witch with horse tail Regards and tbc
  3. No, the glden details are PE. You can find it in the net.
  4. Hi Guys, an update, but at the begining a short tutorial, to respond to michaele. Ho do I convert plastic into wood: 1. a set of paints I use. You can take different browns of both acrylic and vangoghs, depends on what final effect you want to get. If oak-like I use these, if mahogany, I use very dark brown of VanGogh. Definitely you have to put first acrylics (2-3), than oil vangoghs (1-2) and gloss or semigloss or flat acrylic one at the end. 2. Primary version is poor 3. First step, ochre brown by aero and orange brown with dry, stiff brush 4. Then other parts painted with acrylic as VanGoghs are oil so later 5. Now first VanGogh, light one (semi dry brush) 6. And immediately the darker VanGogh to mix them up. With ear pick I smoothly make final moves and remove too much oil paints, esp. at the curves or edges. Then immediately I put acrylic semi gloss to get emulasions between VanGoghs and this clear acrylic. Once it is dry (3-4 days as these oil dry very slowly), I painted knobs with flat black. 7. Here you can see different details to be add on bow part of deck And here it is front part of deck with above details Regards, tbc...
  5. Hi I will be grateful for photos of bowsprit with all ropes and chains as I have some doubts how to fix them all. The manual is pretty poor on this. I've made an overview at some forums but I've not found now detailed pictures of them. So far Regards
  6. Hi Guys, I ve started her as it is one of my favourites tall ships. as of today hull and deck. and a wooden deck, finetuned with acrylic grey crayons, and painting converting to wood with my method I've described before. I ve replaced plastci parts with wooden accesrories and all in place Regards and tbc
  7. Thanks for all good feedback, yes the helmet is in the set as it is military version. there are even side bags and machine gun
  8. Thanks, as mentioned at the beginning of work in progress, this project is for charity auction. So I hope that the new owner will be double happy, with this eye catching Beauty and support he/she delivered by it to kids. I will be for sure
  9. Guys, this is the end, ready for the new owner I hope to find on the auction! Please, keep fingers crossed! Now I am going to switch to a tall ship, as Cutty Sark 1:96 has been on the waiting list for few year... Regards and see you in maritime section
  10. Hi, I haven't had too much time lately, but I have managed to do a nice helmet. This will be a cherry on the cake during auction Regards, tbc
  11. Hi Guys, I had to produce brackets for rear fender try it and paint and put on than I add horn (I think it is) and than rear brake and a seat, some other missing parts so main part is almost ready almost as exhaust and front suspension with handbar are still to be done So it is tbc, regards,
  12. Hi Guys, thing go on. Rear suspension almost completed. Some small parts are missing but, the wheel, chain and transmition completed. I am very surprised, that all parts fits perfectly, almost no glue, just few drops at mounting points. Regards, tbc
  13. Hi Guys, the progress goes on, having advice how to put tires on rims, I made spokes of steel cord 0,5mm and spokes' nests of surgical needles 0,8mm. One fits to another without single drop of glue regards Regards, tbc
  14. Guys do you have any idea how to enlarge tires? current size makes rims halfs impossible to put inside, fit, make them enough close to glue and use some putty. the diameter is to short and I am afraid i will brake then; thanks in adavance for support
  15. Hi Guys, now a special project. This will be for charity auction. Last year I gave Norton, and was very surprised, as reached a very nice price. It has encouraged me to do the same this year, with Triumph. I have started military Italeri version, but I want to make it civil one. In Poland we have had in January, for 29 years annual charity, country wide event, dedicated to support children. Keep fingers crossed for high final bid! Regards and see you soon
