  1. Thanks Jesse! Im collecting supplies for USS Arizona next.
  2. IJN Yamashiro, 1941, 1/1800 Scale The upper hull was 3D printed, lower hull scratch built from styrene. Various PE parts such as searchlights, cram hooks, searchlight platform structures, railings, awning supports, etc. Rigging is ShelfOddity wire, the Aichi E13A floatplane was scratch built from stainless steel.
  3. Sure, you can use paper and cardboard on whatever you like. The only way you'd be cheating is if you bought a finished model. Use whatever resources you have and take lots of photos along the way
  4. Not for everyone I guess
  5. Thought you guys would enjoy this. These are the 3d printed hulls for S/Y Endurance I commissioned a while back from a wonderful gentleman on Shapeways. The larger one is 1/350 and is the one I'm going to work on next following my IJN Maya build. I commissioned these around the time of my 1/700 Endurance scratch build started and they just arrived. They look stunning. I really think 3d printing is the way of the future for scale models. I bought the 1/700 hull too because I couldn't pass it up, even though I had my own under construction. I may sell it at some point, as I don't really need 3 Endurance models. If anyone has a burning desire for it, contact me and we can talk. Here is the link for models if you want the hull in 1/350 or 1/300 even. enjoy!
  6. Thanks! But I think I get more enjoyment out of building small dioramas. I'm working on Franklin's ships now, HMS Erebus and HMS Terror. Similar diorama to Endurance. I think this summer's theme will be Explorers and their ships
  7. But that's so hard!
  8. Thanks! Water based plastic putty on some cellophane left to dry overnight
  9. All finished, She was begging for an icy diorama.
  10. Finished!
  11. Thank ye boys!
  12. Sails added. I found some rigging wire indodnt know I had, just enough to finish her. Some progress:
  13. Soda will break down and yellow. There are commercial products for snow and ice. I think woodland scenics and a couple others make model show and ice products
  14. I haven't decided how I'm going to display it yet. Might do something like that
  15. Thanks Igor! I have a couple sets of drawings which worked for the purpose of a build this small. Shoot me your email and I'll send them over. Original copies can be ordered from the U.K. But they're £100 a copy.
