Hello,

It's a static model. The model is made of solid mdf.

Kees

I'm glad you cleared that up, I was going to say with that amount of mdf it will float like a brick! It must weigh a ton already. Love the weathering technique, you have that down to a fine art. There are not many boats made that show typical weathering, to my mind they look as though they have just been launched and not had a hard life at sea.

Keep up the good work, can't wait to see more. For more ideas on weathering you might want to take a look at a plastic model site called Armorama, its mostly tanks etc but the weathering section and the diorama section are wonderful to read.

I have done some more work on the FR-927. Now I have more fun in building because of all the detaills I have to build.

Kind regards, Kees de Mol

This time I had to make the powerblock. Is a difficult construction to build but it's very satisfying. No more words now, just pics.

I love to see detailing shots like this Kees........it gives inspiration and ideas to those who "think" they can't detail, but in fact have the knowledge and skills to do so, but just don't know where to begin...........well done...

It's a brilliant thread, with a brilliant build, and an inspiration to all modellers and shows that you don't need to be a brass turner, engineer or master modeller............just patience and the normal every day pieces and plastics/wood that we all have around our workshop.

Well done Kees, and apart from the weathering of the hull (as I like my models looking pristine....but no bad reflections on yourself.............) it has given me impetus to get out in my workshop and get cracking..........been a bit lethargic lately.

cheers, neil. :-)) :-)) :-))

@ Neil: Thank you for your comment. I really agree with you. Put away that Playstation and build something you can be proud of.

Last weeks I did a few things on the FR-927. I made the net-roll, the roof on the bridge and the windows. Hope you enjoy watching the pictures. Next updat will be the chimney.

Some more progression on the FR927. The boat has some kind of chimney wich is not a chimney. But it looks cool and you can put some antenna's on it. Also made a life raft.

Very very informative  O0 O0 O0
 
Obviously the sequence of fabrication is the key to scratch building.
 
For example applying the "bolts/rivets" to the base plate first.
 
No doubt it is this sequencing that deters a lot from scratch building.
 
Looking forward to next instalment O0 O0 O0

I never thought of that but I think you are right. But it will happen that I forget to make something so I have to make it afterwarts when it's more difficult. (i hope you can read what i say because my English is not very well >>:-( )

Hellooh sailors!

Something completely different today: This morning the first deckhand for the FR-927 knocked on my door fot a jobintervieuw. I hired him but on condition that he will get een nice matt finish first

Meet Niels...






For a first attemt to make and paint a figure I am satisfied with the results. On the photo it's not very good to see that I used diverse shades of paint to create some depth on the figure.

Groeten, Kees

This is a very impressive build!

But MDF? Ugh, I hate that stuff. It's just chemical gloop and wood fragments squeezed together in some nightmare amalgam of pure yuck. It's horrible.

I think there is no need to hate MDF. That's wath they said about plastic a couple of years ago.

Just to make sure: This model will be a static model
