Bonjour mes amis,
Merci à Paul821 qui m'a très bien guidé dans l'art subtil de l'édition de photos, je peux vous proposer mon dernier modèle de navigation.
C’est le Saint-Louis d’une de mes sociétés AIRFIX préférées.
C'est un excellent modèle, très fin et superbement gravé.
Un pur moment de bonheur.
C'est la première fois que je reproduis la mer de manière si importante.
J'ai utilisé toutes les techniques connues: mousse, papier toilette et colle blanche, support acrylique, coton synthétique pour filtre d'aquarium.
le navire est peint avec des peintures Humbrol puis avec des peintures à l'huile.
Je travaille maintenant sur "comment fabriquer des voiles crédibles à une échelle".
Passez une bonne journée.
Amitiés
Marc

I think it probably looks fantastic, but the photos are so small it's difficult to tell. Even when I click on them, it just opens a very low resolution photo. Please show higher definition pictures so we can see the hard work you have put into this.

For those that don't realise, tis is 1/144 and was produced by Airfix in 1973.

 

Airfix / 1973 you just know the quality wasn't there.

 

Which makes this all the more stunning!

 

Excellent job Marc, one to be very proud of. Wish you would post Work in Progress of your next build

 

:clap2:

Thank you for your feedback, it is very encouraging.


On the other hand, Kev, I do not know if I will be at the height of a W.I.P. I am very very slow .....
On the other hand, I know that it is (because I benefited greatly from it) very enriching. The exchange is always very fruitful for everyone.
I promise you to think about it for my next ship ... (The Flora, or the Golden Hind of Sir Francis Drake or the Mayflower .... or another..I am in the pleasant moment where we seek the next "boarding").
Friendships.
Mark.

Sorry, I thought I did it.

Hello my friends,
Thanks to Paul821 who guided me very well in the subtle art of photo editing, I can offer you my latest navigation model.
This is the Saint-Louis of one of my favorite AIRFIX companies.
It is an excellent model, very fine and beautifully engraved.
A pure moment of happiness.
This is the first time that I reproduce the sea so importantly.
I used all known techniques: foam, toilet paper and white glue, acrylic support, synthetic cotton for aquarium filter.
the ship is painted with Humbrol paints and then with oil paints.
I am now working on "how to make credible sails on a scale".
Have a nice day.
friendships
Marc

Speed of work is not important

We are more interested in learning how you put together your work

It is models like this that make me gasp in awe.  I see lots of models that are just way beyond my ability and sometimes I try to console myself saying "Well it is the latest top of the range model with lots of after-market" and then I see something like this.

 

A really basic, low quality Airfix kit from the 70s that looks amazing.  Then I realise it is all down to skill.

 

Truly amazing.

 

Cheers,

 

Nigel

Hello,


I must admit that I do not build almost new models.
I stayed at the models that made me dream child ....
Airfix is very important to me. This is the mark of the first model Gruman Gosling offered by my father 55 years ago.
The second was also Airfix, a destroyer H.M.S COSSAK.
And since....
Your appreciations are very encouraging and I am working on the idea of Kev concerning the realization of a small Diorama H.M.S BOUNTY Revell 1/110 arriving in Tahiti.
I found plans and drawings for the Polynesian canoes according to the plans of Admiral PARIS.
Good evening to all.
Friendships.
Marc

Utterly stunning!! I am not (generally) a ship modeller but appreciate the superb detailing and exquisite detailing which has gone into this. Can't believe that this is from the old Airfix kit. Superb!

 

Absolument magnifique! (google translation so I hope it says what I think it does!)

 

Cheers
