    Das soll es werden ein Argoship für Leute mit kleinem Geldbeutel. [​IMG]
    That is, there are a Argoship for people on a budget.

    Or for the initiated the "USS Valley Forge" Running of Silence.
    Target is a recognition factor of the future model.
    So I go completely relaxed to the cause ..... a little fun project for a few minutes a day (to switch off) after work.
    Since I have no plan, except the photos on my IPAd, I build by eye.
    Material, which is lying around. Inexpensive ...

    Oder für Eingeweihte die "USS Valley Forge" aus Silence Running. [​IMG]
    Ziel ist ein Wiedererkennungseffekt des zukünftigen Modells.
    Ich gehe also ganz entspannt an die Sache.....ein kleines Spaßprojekt, für einige Minuten am Tag (zum abschalten) nach der Arbeit.
    Da ich keinen Plan habe, außer den Fotos auf meinem IPAd, baue ich nach Augenmaß.
    Material, was rumliegt. Nur minimal.....

    Dafür habe ich mir nachfolgendes Material zurecht gelegt und bearbeitet
    Acrylkugeln.
    But I've concocted and edited subsequent material
    acrylic balls

    Auf Pappe die Umrisse angezeichnet. On board the outline drawn.

    Das ganze ausschneiden The whole cut

    [​IMG]

    mit Holzkaltleim bestreichen und anschliesend begrünen. (Eisenbahnzubehör)
    sprinkle with cold wood glue and then greening. (Railway accessories)

    Für das Material war ich gezwungen vorher einige Pomeleo zu essen. Ich habe das Netzt benötigt, kann nun aber auch mit ruhigem Gewissen
    vertreten "Sie sind lecker!".
    For the material I was forced to eat before a Pomelo. I have the Netzt required, but can now also with a clear conscience
    represented "They are delicious!".
    [​IMG]


    Das so gewonnene Netz ziehe ich über die Acrylglaskuppel und verdrehe es unten. Halten tut alles mit Draht. kein kleben!
    The network thus obtained I pull on the acrylic dome and twist it down. Keep doing everything with wire. no glue!
    [​IMG]


    Jetzt kommen die weiteren Scheiben zum Einsatz. Mittig in das Loch wird der Drahtgnuppel gezogen und das ganze mit holzkaltleim verleimt.
    Now the other disks are used. Centered in the hole of Drahtgnuppel is pulled and the whole glued with cold wood glue.
    [​IMG]

    Hier warten also 6 Habitate auf ihren Einsatz.
    Here, then wait 6 habitats on their use.

    Die Reste eines Turmdrehkranes....hervorragend.
    The remains of a tower crane .... excellent.

    [​IMG]

    Als nächstes 6 1cm breite Streifen, aus Pappe, zum verdecken der Klebenaht.
    Next 6 1 cm wide strips of cardboard, the collapse of the bond seam.

    Hier habe ich schnell mal vom Bildschirm abfotografiert wie es bei teuren Kits aussieht. Jetzt wo ich weiss wie es mit den Kuppeln klappt,
    werde ich diese beim nächsten mal noch etwas flacher gestalten.
    Übrigens dieses Modell hier kostet 950 USD ungebaut...als KIT.
    ere I have fast times photographed from the screen as it looks at expensive kits. Now that I know how it works with the domes,
    I'll make this the next time a little flat.
    Incidentally, this model here costs 950 USD unbuilt ... as KIT.

    Um die Kuppeln später ordentlich zu befestigen habe ich in das Krangestell ein Rohr eingeklebt.
    To attach the domes tidy later I glued a pipe in the crane frame.

    Im Film und am teuren Modell ist ja der Wohnbereich für die Crew etwas aufwendiger zu bauen,
    In the film and the expensive model is indeed the living area for the crew somewhat more complicated to build,

    Den habe ich folgendermaßen gebaut. Hier habe ich Materialreste von meinem Shuttlebau genutzt.
    I built follows. Here I have used material remains of my shuttle construction.

    Als Belobigung gibt es für die Tapferen, welche bis zum Schluss durchgehalten haben noch etwas Besonderes.

    As commendation there for the brave who have persevered to the end even more special.

    Für die Neugierigen............und so ging es weiter.
    Die Rückseiten unserer alten 2015er Wandkalender, auf Arbeit, bestehen aus Graupappe. Es wurden alle bei mir "abgeliefert".... [​IMG]

    For the curious ............ and so it went on.
    The backs of our old 2015er wall calendar at work, made of chipboard. It all were "delivered" to me ...

    Jenny, If I may be so familiar, your work fascinates me. I too know of UHU's model, but I know your capability, and this is "performance Art" at it's best, We all wait for the inevitable wondrous outcome!!! ;)

    Your surface detail is many light-years ahead of the retail kit.
    Great results as ever!
