    Some time ago not start a new thread, but every day I visit this forum.
    I take time working on this project is well underway and I want to share it here.

    [​IMG]

    The project is to modify a boat that comes waterline hull to complete the first test and I'm doing with the titanic of JSC.

    [​IMG]

    The first thing I did was move the internal structure in the original paper to a carton of 1 mm

    The first idea is to adapt the pieces of model Gomix that he also bought.

    [​IMG]

    But the waterline of the two models do not match, as can be seen in this photo.

    [​IMG]

    The JSC model is more unreal, I can only use the profile of the model Gomix and the remainder will build from scratch.

    The first attempt was very bad

    [​IMG]

    The second attempt was better

    .............. and continue.

    Now the problem is to paint the hull plating and disguising the court of original pieces to which I have made.

    First the paint with a marker

    [​IMG]

    But the result is not good and advised me try other solutions. For the next test short strips of colored hull and marks sheet and then the one to one hit to the hull. This time the result if I like.

    Here you can see better comparison

    The latest photos are of the promenade deck first class, I'm doing tests with cables chimneys, I'm still not sure how I will ride.

    Very nice model, and I like the modifications you added. I've never seen this model, and I prefer full hulls to waterline models, so I follow this with great interest.

    Where can the Gomix model be purchased, by the way? I forgot to ask.

    I've bought in Poland in GPM - modele kartonowe, live in Spain and there are no problems with the shipment, if you live in the USA where you can not buy.

    (Very well made.
    More! I want more!
    I want to steal more ideas!)
  13. I was studying your aft build and the stern did not appear as I remembered it. Specifically the Port and Starboad drive assembly. I built the Revell model several years ago. After looking up the pictures of the real thing, I just learned yours is correct and mine is wrong. Mine tilt upwards and yours tilt down. Now what? Do I tear it apart for the sake of accuracy? ---- Thanks, I was perfectly happy in my ignorance now you have forced me to reality.

    Nice build by the way

    The first attempt to simulate the hull plating was painting with a ruler and a marker

    [​IMG]

    The result is not good, the grating are not parallel and have different widths

    For the second attempt I do is cut strips of paper with the marks painted on and I hitting the hull, in these two photographs can be seen strips pasted on the helmet painted with felt pens.

    Here you can compare the first hull against the final outcome, (it hurts so bad picture)

    Un saludo

    And this is achieved in advancing this week, that Bowman finished at 95% since he entered the working party where the pieces are very small and progress seems slow.
