Oliver's Calypso

  1. Here is my build of Oliver's Calypso. I was surprised at what looks like a relatively simple model, was quite challenging to build. Olli has an interesting style. I left my edges un-colored which gave it a softer look. There was quite a bit of detail if you look closely. When I built the Helo I wasn't even sure what it was until I checked out later build pictures. The only instructions you get are the ones on his build thread located here,

    I like the scale as it takes up very little room on my shelf. Thanks Olli!:wave::thumb:

  2. Oli, I have a question. I found the roof of the wheelhouse to be smaller than the cabin. In looking closely at your build pictures I see you had the same problem. I would suggest perhaps enlarging that part. I printed a second one and glued it further forward to fill the gap.

    Wow, that took me back, I loved watching "Jack Who Stole" on Sundays when I was a kid! (it took me a few years to figure out it wasn't "Jack who stole" :p)
