  1. SS Hydrograaf, 1/100, hydrographic ship of the Royal Dutch Navy. Shipyard: Fijenoord shipbuilding and engineering company in Rotterdam Keel laying 11 October 1909 Launched 26 January 1910 Employed 4 May 1910 Out of service 16 October 1962 Active status Home port Den Helder; 1985: Amsterdam Owners: Netherlands Owner 1998 - Rederij de Hydrograaf BV Weesp Charterer Dutch Glory Previous owners 1910 Royal Netherlands Navy 1964 Sea Cadet Corps, Rotterdam 1985 The Sailing Museum Ship Foundation, Amsterdam General characteristics 1910 Hydrographic ship 1985 Saloon boat Length 40.5 metres Width 6.70 metres Draft 1.80 metres Displacement 297 tonnes Passengers 200 maximum (since 1985) Propulsion and power 2 steam engines, two screws, 411 hp 1985: 2 MAN diesel engines, 2 x 480 hp Speed 10.5 knots Port of Morlaix (29), France. A little history: The ship was built in 1909-1910 by the Scheeps-en Werktuigbouw Fijenoord in Rotterdam . The ship was launched on 11 October 1909 and launched on 26 January 1910. As was customary at the time, it was a steamship with two coal-fired steam engines. With a draught of only 1.80 metres, she was perfectly capable of operating in the shallow coastal waters of the southwestern Netherlands, the Zuiderzee and the Waddenzee. On 4 May 1910, the Royal Navy commissioned the Hydrograaf . As a rule, the ship served as a depth survey ship in a particular area from April to October. Outside this season, it was not possible to carry out bathymetric surveys because of the weather. The vessel was officially commissioned and decommissioned for each season. During the winter months the ship usually stayed in Hellevoetsluis or Willemsoord, Den Helder . The ship did not sail in the grey colours of the navy, but had a black hull and yellow superstructure. In 1921 the ship was reinforced by the Eilerts de Haan, built at the same yard. The Hydrograaf was used several times as a royal yacht during visits of Queen Wilhelmina, Prince Hendrik and Princess Juliana to the waters of South Holland and Zeeland. There was a cabin below deck at the stern for this purpose. During the royal visit to Zeeland in 1921, the royal party spent the night of 15 to 16 September on board the ship, which was moored in the port of Vlissingen. In May 1940, the ship left Vlissingen for England. During the Second World War, the ship was used as an accommodation ship for the bomb disposal service. On 25 September 1943, the ship arrived in Harwich to serve as a depot ship. After the conquest of Zeeuws-Vlaanderen, the ship was placed at the disposal of the commander in Zeeland in October 1944. She immediately served again as a survey ship to better map the important access to the port of Antwerp. After the war, the ship returned to the service of the Hydrographic Service. As such, she was withdrawn from service by the Royal Navy on 16 October 1962 and replaced by the modern ship Zeefakkel. She was the last coal-fired steamer of the Royal Navy. From 30 August to 8 September 2006, the Hydrograaf was used as a stage for the theatrical performance of The Sinking of the Titanic, one of the open-air performances at the Zeeland Nazomer Festival. The audience was taken on a journey through Zeeland's waters from various ports, during which the story of the sinking of the Titanic was told as a metaphor for the decline of Western civilisation during a tour of the ship. Wiki. This ship often comes to France, in summer, during the various national maritime festivals, such as "Tonnerre de Brest", La semaine du Golf du Morbihan, Terre et Mer etc. Thanks to Roland for finding me the necessary plans to draw the hull in 3D. At 1/100 the ship will be 40.5 cm long overall. A nice model never reproduced in plastic, there is a paper/cardboard version. https://www.postbeeld.nl/vnhphydro100-stoomschip-hydrograaf Some nice examples exist in a large scale sailing version. I had the chance to see her several times, at Brest 2000, at sea, and more closely in the port of Morlaix, which is what gave me the idea to reproduce this elegant ship in 3D printing lately. The version will probably be the 1910 one, at least with the elements I have at the moment. 1/100th scale sketch of the hull, nothing final, nothing finished:
  2. Hello Britmodellers, Have a break....now there is the break in England vs. Colombia! Built ca. 1971 two times, Army and Marines. Only one survived. Paintbrush of course at that time. Because the heli wanted to repel the decals i sprayed varnish over by spray can few months later. Yellow mellow....OH OH! England, England! May our/your Klopp be with you! Cheers, Tom
  3. Hi all, Second Entry is the M3 Lee I'll not bother with a running commentary on the construction of this one, it all went together with no trouble and fitted well. As I said, there were no real issues building this but I now need to decide on the end user - The box artwork shows the subject in Soviet service, then there is always the option of American or British markings. These two would, according to photos, require the addition of some extra stowage boxes on the rear hull and, if going for the 8th Army option, the addition of sandskirts. Probably have a sleep on it... Kind Regards IanJ
  4. Hi all, Quick little one to start with - Courtesy of the "Art of Tactic" series produced by Zvezda... This is what you get in the box - The engineering is a bit different from what they've done in the past in that the hull is built up around a frame. And as regards building - let's get on with it! Don't blink or you'll miss it Here's the frame that I mentioned - To this attaches the baseplate, diff housing, glacis plate and all the rear gubbins. Add the hull sides and top - It's all snap together but the manufacturer suggests that it can be glued if you like, TET used in this instance. Humbrol paint pot for size comparison. And it's built - Nowhere near my PB of 12 mins for a Zvezda tank but I took a bit more time with this one - couple of gaps to fill and some filing before priming. I now have to consider colours - Would I be right in saying that it's meant to be an M4A2 76(W)? In which case who used them? Thanks for looking IanJ
  5. Hello all, Tis' I. Just thought I'd share what I'm working on at the minute. In a desperate attempt to get over the modeller's malaise that struck me hard within months of coming back in to the folds of those fanciers of plastic crack (leading to three incompletes on various Group Builds) I decided to dig this old lad out of the attic. It's a 1/100 scale F71 G-Cannon from the Mobile Suit Gundam F91 film. Originally released in 94 (I think) I picked him up off of ebay in 2001-2 when I was 14 of 15, badly stuck him together and then left him languishing in a box in my mum's attic for over a decade. Being that I've always liked the design and being, in my mind at least, partially complete I thought finishing him off might be a good way of getting myself energized again. And in it's own way it's working, though it wan't as easy as job as I'd first anticipated. Mostly because of the bloody awful job younger me had done to the poor lad. My overzealous self had carved some rather severe trenches in the plastic in an attempt to clear seamlines (very prevalent on these early Bandai kits, and always in awkward places) and absolutely destroyed his hands. Anyway, my best efforts with Mr. Surfacer, lots of sand paper and some primer resulted in this: Which really needed a rub down with some micromesh (which I'm not sure how to use, do you cut strips off it or just use it like a polishing cloth?) and a few touch-ups; but being the lazy and also impatient goit that I am I thought I'd just attack it with the airbrush (if I could remember how to use it and as of tonight this is how it looks: This is after two coats of future (which never takes on a glossy, glassy sheen for me like it does when you proper modellers do it) and needing one more before the decals go on (the early No Grade 1/100 kits actually came with both stickers and decals which is nice). Then it will be some more future and a panel wash. Now, here's where I need you professhunals help...how should I go about doing that last part? I've seen some great work on these pages but my last attempts at panel washes turned out a bit pap if we're being polite (check the sig) and so I'd like some advice. What are the pre-prepared washes like, and how should one use them? Also, filters: Yes/no? Help me Britmodeller.comWork-in-ProgressSci-FiandRealSpace-Kenobi you're my only hope! TTFN and that. Paul Kisses.
