Ladies and gents, after two months of hard work, I finished my last project: T337 HMT Coldstreamer - WW2 Royal Navy armed trawler, scale 1/200. The model is designed from scratch, and shows the vessel in her early configuration. This one is "standard paper build". No photo-etched parts, laser-cuts formers and other techniques: just paper, knife and glue. And few inches of thin copper wire and fishing line. I started from internal construction (framework). As always, frames and deck are glued onto 1mm cardboard: Hull skin and framework is designed the way that gives choice to the modeler to build full-hull model or water-line model. Hull skin above waterline is glued to the skeleton with step-by-step method (~ one inch in a sequence): Foredeck is difficult to form and glue (unlike the rest of the model): Next step: hull skin below waterline. I started from the foremost element, towards aft: Stern is another tricky part of the build, see why: I'm pretty satisfied with the result:thumb: The hull: Main superstructure. This is simple and small module, no internal framework necessary - I only used 0.5mm to reinforce the "ceiling" and thin 1mm stripes to make the edges more rigid: I added also a small construction on the aft: and started to glue deck details: Main superstructure continuation. Simple boxes. The funnel (?) is made w/out internal reinforcements: it's just slightly flattened tube: Deck details. I dont know how You name it, but the pics will explain everything: Stairs. Another challenging element. It was not necessary to cut out the steps, but this element is designed to do this: Stern 20mm gun mount and boat-deck: Air intakes or wentilation on the midship deck: Midship 20mm gun mount: Main deck gun mount and some anchoring equipment (please name it for me): General view: Mk XIX QF main gun turret, DC rack Mk9, main mast: Mast is made of sorta big toothpick, the boom - of traditional toothpick Further details and rigging: This is my idea for 20mm Oerlikon guns: Each gun consists of seven elements. And the final pics: I hope You like it. HMT Coldstreamer, scale 1/200 has been designed on Modelarstwo Okretowe* magazine request and will be published in November 2011. * Polish ship modeler's magazine.
