    Those details are coming out brilliantly!
    Takes a real steady hand to cut those small parts out, and you did a fantastic job of it.

    Outstanding work!

    Cheers!

    Hello again. There is a thing on a back superstructure (I have no idea what it is).
    I was unable to make it from wires so I decided to make it from paper.

    Here you can see as it looks glued to the right place.

    And here more of the ship.

    Please tell me someone what is the forum time (day and hour). I don't want to make
    a stupid mistake and finish the model to late. There is a lot of work and I will
    need every hour.

    The forum time is EST.
    Eastern Standard Time. or -5 hours Greenwich Mean Time.
    You should check with the contest rules though to make sure what time Bill set as the ending time.

    I made a lift (or what it is).

    Here you can see how it's build.

    [​IMG]

    Here it is painted, together with other parts.

    Now you can see all new stuff mounted on the ship.

    Look at the Home page, BEFORE you "login".

    The calendar shows the day..... scroll right to the bottom of the page....

    ..... The time is....

    AFTER you have logged in, all time will be adjusted to whatever you have set in your preferences.

    Hope this helps. ... Bill

    In original digitalnavy project the anchor is made from two cone.
    But on the pictures we can see that it is not cone but part of the
    sphere. Below you can see how I made it.

    Now it's time for the chimney. First the ladder. I can't use photo etched
    parts in competition and I'm not good in working with wires so I made
    the ladder from paper.

    [​IMG]

    Here some more work on the chimney.

    [​IMG]

    Here how I made the trumpet.

    [​IMG]

    Now you can see the chimney almost finished.

    [​IMG]

    And here the chimney mounted to the ship.

    According to my calculations the competition ends in 4 hours from now
    (please correct me someone if I'm wrong). I will post the final
    pictures in about 3 hours from now.

    It's way over

    Mpakier, as far as I'm concerned the competition ended days ago - you're build is just amazing. You're a winner in my books!

    I will add more pictures of the ship later. Now I'm after whole night
    of building it and after 2 hours I have to go to work.

    Beautiful work! You did a great job on her!

    This one definitely needs a cover to protect it!
