Imperial Star 1948

3 posts in this topic

I began this cargo liner in November.   Scale 32 feet to 1 inch (1:384)   Because she was such a big ship, the hull is 18 inches long overall, even at this small scale.   Not going in a bottle, of course, couldn't manage that!      Usually, I can build something like this within four or five weeks, but in this case, I lost interst shortly after starting.   With the better weather, and lighter afternoons, my interest has revived.   I have almost completed the bridge section now.    I hope it will move along a bit faster now.

Hi, Bob.

Beautiful clean work, as ever.

I'm glad you mentioned the scale or I would have suspected you of making a mini-pen

regards

I have now made more progress with the hatches, deckhouses, and after accommodation fitted.    Also fitted the side stanchions on the port side of the after accommodation this morning.     This one is taking an age to build - have been at it since November, but didn't do anything at all on it for over three months
