Hi Lou;
Thank you very much for your correction of what I misunderstood on the depth charges.
Frankly speaking,even I felt something strange on the smoke canisters as these were larger than other true depth charges,while coloring is the same (by the kit instructions) and the shape is so similar each other.... {-) :o :embarrassed:
At the same time I wondered how and where "the big depth charges"would be dropped away ..... {-) {-) {-) {-)

Hi all;
I installed the depth charge dropping rails as per the kit instructions.
And page 42 was done.!
It's March from tomorrow at last when true spring should come for my RC hobby activities. :-)) ♬~♩~♫~

Looking very nice Kiyo.


There is a chance that in the case of WWII they did not paint the smoke canisters all nice and pretty to match the ship like they did with the Sackville. It was wartime and they may not have bothered! The Sackville after all is a museum ship and is all dressed up for the public. I used that picture only because it was the best that I could find that I could make work on this forum. I still have considerable problems getting pictures to work on this forum.


Looking forward to sailing day.

Hi all;
Handrailing work was done on the forecastle as per the kit instructions.
By this work, I am passing page 43 of whole 45 pages.
The rest of the work are mainly rigging work ,16 crew figures,appliance of decals,other flags and pennants as well as partial
camouflage painting around superstructures before the modifications of internal Rc system of the hull.
Well,this ship will never been possibly commissioned within March..unless above works should go smooth..??? {-) O0
1/2/3;Handrailing works done.
4;This ship has now been named Snowberry formally.!! {-) %%
5/6/7;Profiles as of page 43.

Looking really very good. As a suggestion you can get various thicknesses of a product called "Beadalon". Its jewelry wire and can be as thin as 0.3 mm and is seven strand wire with an incredibly thin coating so it really does look like wire rope. You need to use thin metal tubes to crimp it together but it looks like the real thing because it is the real thing in miniature.


I use it on all my models (or a similar brand) and it adds an extra dimension and is not expensive.





Cheers

I've not used this myself for rigging, but  several reviews say EZ Line  is pretty good!

Hi all;
A report for today on my Snowberry is the rigging works based on primarily the instruction manuals using 0.3mm colored thread contained in the kit,which I "found" by chance about 10 days or so ago.!! {-) {-) {-)
In this sense,I was lucky to have found this thread as I had been searching for something suitable for the rigging work like
asking my wife if she had a good thread for the work or looking for it in my odds and ends.....
1/2/3/4;Rigging work was done.!
5/6/7;Page 44 of the instruction manuals was over with these profiles.


The rest are crew figures and decals.After that I have to modify the RC system to go for a launching sail after intensive bathtub test running the motor for ten minutes or so including ballast adjustment. :D

Hi all;
I decided to adopt 12 crews for having them work aboard my Snowberry among 15 furnished in the kit.
And I painted them according to the instruction manuals today.
1;Before painting after shaping them up as "figures"
2;Painted
3;12 crews were selected for service aboard the ship.
4;They are naturally to be positioned as ammunition loaders and a rammer on the gun platform.! O0
5;I am wondering how and where the rest of crews are to be positioned properly...But this sort of imagination is pleasant
to do actually for a model ship building at the final stage ,isn't it..? {-) O0 %%
6;By adding these figures and other accessories ,another enjoyment of dioramic scenes will be created aboard the model ship... O0 %% :-))

It's your photos showing the figures being painted on the ends of sticks. Vlad or as he was more properly known Vlad Dracul (dragon) was the ruler of Wallachia mid 15th century. Known as Vlad the Impaler due to the the way he punished people by impaling them on wooden posts. The probable inspiration for Dracula the vampire.

Hi Lou and all;
Here are the pics of completed Snowberry as just a plastic model as fundamentally per the instruction manuals,not as a working model currently.!! {-) %% ;D From next week,I will start modifying the RC gears already installed to get her sail actually on the lake from April at the latest. :-)) %%

I do not understand Kiyo. I thought you had already built and tested the RC part of the ship long ago?

Maybe a translation misunderstanding?  :o  as Page 1 does confirm the R/C setup with the motor fitted etc..
