m getting paranoid about the wavy lines

 

Isn't paranoia when a person is scared of things that aren't going to happen? I'm afraid the card warping happened already, way back when you applied the modgepodge. It's not going to straighten out on its own.

 

Is there anything you can do to straighten out the rest of the sheets before you cut the parts out? Can you iron modgepodge soaked card?

they will sort them selfs out as the rest of the build goes on, i post lots of photo's during my builds, not just the finished bits,

all my builds tend to be long term  the paranoid line came in from the the comments relating to a photo which others would not have posted  it, im not concerned about it all all,

day 29 shaft tunnel

 

rightly or wrongly, i build this up as a standalone, so that it could be painted separately, all the decks in machinery/non cargo spaces within the hull will be green i quite like the colour i found, the white is just primer, the port side will not be seen so i left it unpainted so that i can see the frame numbers

the after cargo hold bulkhead is next to be made up and then fitted as a large section

some of you will recognise me having done this in January this year

 

working on the shaft tunnel number 48

good evening everyone

 

yep sorry its me again

 

day 30 engine room bulkheads

 

taken me most of the day to build these two and get them in place, when i say most of the day, perhaps 4 to 5 hours modelling, meals, dog walking hubby doos all adds up

but, im happy with the progress, very happy indeed, means now i can set the engine room up and see in i can convert the 1/16 engine to 1/70

next will be the engine room levels girders, which will straighten up the bulkheads

good evening everyone

this build seams to have attracted some attention, so i had better make a decent job of it, and finish it this year 

Day 32 engine room tween deck module and after peak 

been doing some garden work the last couple of days but yesterday i varnished 12 sheets of card on both sides to allow more cutting out 

personally i have found it easier to work away from the kit rather than on the build itself

day 34 box girders and crocodile clips

the after peak has been fitted and stands up quite well on its own, however the more support i can give it the safer it is

the box girders are now starting to line it all up, no glue has been used since the last post

i have no intention of passing the forward engine room bulkhead for a while with intentions of staying with the after part of the build

Good evening everyone

day 37 stern build up continues, and a wheelie bin

3 days since my last post, and not much to show for it, life got in the way

the stern build up is now mainly complete, i just want to add some paint to the hard to get to places before the frames go in, i will do that next to prevent any damage occuring

the white painted section is the steering gear flat, it will get a green deck before the longitudinals go back in

day 41 engine room levels

everything seams to be lining up so far

i had some decent outside photos of the engine room until i realised i had put the i had put the flat level in the wrong position,

oh and the boi wanted a mention

Hi Kev

 

ive just caught up with this thread. I LOVE it, the size, the detail, the fact that it is card, the fact that most of the detail is lost, everything.  Well done for starting over and for building the whole ship

 

ill be following along, this one is too good to miss.  
 

if only it were in brass :hmmm:

 

cheers

if it was brass i would be looking for handouts lol and it would be far to heavy

Bored? Why? It's a modelling forum ūüôā

 

I think it's fascinating, like watching a real ship being built. Not that I've ever saw that happen, but this is a good alternative for now!

good evening everyone

thankyou for comments and like comments

day 48 tween deck transverse beams

a lot of progress made in the last few days

i decided to make a lot the internal decks and deckheads in modules i have found, for me it works very well, and allows me to get all the longitudinals quite straight, also allows painting a lot easier

 

lots of transverse beams ready for fitting these are for the stbd side midships

Good evening everyone

 

well im on day 76 of this epic build now, and it still impresses me

 

i played around with the cargo ideas, and basically lost interest in it, not the right time, no real thought went into it, wrong scale, and a distraction from the build, will go back to it when the cargo spaces are ready
