This was the announcement

The International Maritime Museum Hamburg (IMMH), Prof. Peter Tamm’s largest private collection of maritime items worldwide, will host the first “International Shipmodelling Days in Hamburg” from September 14th to September 16th 2018. Shipmodellers and clubs of all kind – from historic ships made of wood to radio controlled, from card models to styrene, resin and multimedia or collector models in 1/1250 scale – are invited to present their models. The meeting will be a great opportunity for model makers to make their work known, and to expand their network with shipmodellers and their view on the hobby.

I traveled to Hamburg in order to see this event, but also visit the museum and if possible to see something else from the beautiful city of Hamburg......but

at the end I spend the complete Saturday and Sunday from the morning until the late afternoons in these Ship-modeling days talking with modelers and making some photos.
It was a great event and I am happy to hear, that they plan to repeat the same in two years - I will be there!

Now in the following I will make several posts - every time with a focus on the work of one modeler, one club or manufacturer......stay tuned.....

In this post I want to introduce one modeler, which is a master in his field and I think also well known by some of you

I had an intensive talk and exchange of experience with master-carver (and -modeler) Ivan Trtanj, who is also a registered member here in our SOS forum.

IMG_46971.jpg

Ivan showed one of his last projects, a Venetian Gondola Funerale built based solely on photographic documents from the 19th century. In the city of Venice most vehicle transportation is made by boat. This is the shipping version of a funerary carriage. The model is not finished, f.e. the curtains are still dummies and will be replaced by carved one´s.

In the following you can find some details of his carving work

If you want to see more of his work, visit his small museum at Museum Schlössle in Kressbronn at the Bodensee in southern Germany
http://www.historische-schiffsmodelle.com/index.php?option=com_frontpage&Itemid=1

Take also a look on the web-page at the models like the Amphion, Bellona, Pegasus, Royal Caroline, Große Jagt etc. - Great Work

Short form of his Vita
Ivan Trtanj was born in Yugoslavia (Banat) on September 13th, 1945. In the course of the years, model ships of unrivalled quality with high historical evidence were made. Yachts and rowing sloops from different royal dynasties in Europe from 1736 to 1814 have been reconstructed true to nature and, for the most part, as faithful copies according to the original plans. So unprecedented examples of a subtile and personally formed wood-carving have been made.
Romanticism and significance of shipbuilding, connected with the typical stilistic elements of the rococo and the baroque eras join with the masterliness of the technique of wood-carving. Now his historic model ships are open to the public in a permanent exhibition at the „Museum im Schlössle“ at Kressbronn/Lake Constance. At the moment, the exhibition shows 16 historic model ships made by the artist in his fine craftmanship for almost 50 years.
For 2019 Ivan plans to add ship number 17 - the Funerale Gondola

I am pretty sure, that I will visit him in short time in his workshop

Ivan, many thanks for your time and the interesting talks!

Ivan is already mentioned in Wikipedia:
https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ivan_Trtanj

and he wrote a book showing and describing his work:
"Schwimmende Kunstwerke von Ivan Trtanj: im Schlössle Kressbronn/Bodensee"

BTW:
make a google search for pictures with "Ivan Trtanj"

[QUOTE = "Maarten, post: 40855, member: 4818"] So you met the michael jackson of shipmodel carving. Great work he delivers. Curious about his opinion of cnc carvings nowadays . [/ QUOTE]
Hallo Maarten, a cnc - machine possible to do these works would be very complex. I have my own "cnc machine" at home, contents 10 fingers and 2 eyes - and costs nothing

G'day Ivan and welcome to our family here at SOS.
We are very fortunate to have someone who are very well known, like you Ivan to join our family.
I'm hoping that you may show us some of your secrets, if I may be so bold.
As you may know, we are very fortunate to have two wonderful sculptures among our mist now. I'm talking about our other member Jonas who is also a known artist in your field.
I, and I sure all our family here, wishes you a very happy and wonderful time with us.
Happycarving

And with a vast array of knowledge and experience, some might say 'with a Divine touch' as well.

Today I show another very well known modeler which was presenting some of his works.
These are the scratch built working ships and vessels in scale 1:75 built by H. Jürgen Mottschall.
Mr. Motschall has very good connection to the shipyards where the original vessel are built, so he is getting copies of the original drawings and constructions, so he is able to produce a real copy of the vessel. These drawings have a strict copyright and he has to sign confidentially agreements before he receives any data.
He is using between 4.000 to 6.000 working hours for the completion of the models.

Good connections + very good modeler => unique and great models

He is constructing the 3D-model on the computer with appr. 400 hours and needs appr. 250 hours for the model construction
All models are RC

Heinz-Peter Weiss is an old friend of the museum (several models of him are in the permanent exhibition) and a true master when it comes to design and build cardboard miniatures in a scale of 1:1250. He won also several NAVIGA gold and silver medals. During the Shipmodelling Days he had a stand at the entrance hall of the museum. There he presented some of his new dioramas. Our visitors had the pleasure to see him building a miniature live!

One of his dioramas in the permanent exhibition in the museum - here Helgoland
DSCN0278.JPG DSCN0279.JPG

Heinz-Peter is designing all of his models by himself, so no card-board kits, all scratch built models. He is not using CAD, everything by hand. In the following a photo showing the design of his actual cruising ship - and the model under construction - interesting also to mention, that he is color-blind, so his wife has to help if it comes to choose the correct painting

Some other models built by him

A beautiful box with all winning sailing ships of the America's Cup - this will from now on also part of the permanent exhibition

IMG_4752.JPG IMG_4753.JPG

He is also producing bigger diorama - especially actual he likes to build the skyline of New York - here is using google-street and photos of the real situation - so every window / balcony etc is built in his model like the real.......

The photorealistic models of Austrian artist Wolfgang Wurm most certainly cached the eye of everyone present at the museum. His talent as a builder is only surpassed by his talent as a model painter.

He has a very good web-page - take also a look here: http://ww-ships.at/

He was present with several 1:200 battleship models - bashed kit models - with extremely good weathering!

The USS de Haven (DD-727) was an Allen M. Sumner-class destroyer commissioned by the U.S. Navy in March 1944. She served through the end of World War II and the Cold War, including two tours of duty during the Korean War. She was transferred to the Navy of South Korea in 1973, where she was renamed Incheon. She served there for 20 years until she was scrapped in 1993.

and for me one highlight during the Hamburg visit was the talk with Karl Ingwer Malcha and his two beautiful models.

First of all model in scale 1:48 of the swedish schooner Lystfartyg (1768) based on the drawings by Frederik Henrik af Chapman from the Architectura Navalis Mercatoria 1768

The second model by Karl Ingwer Malcha was the unfinished model of the
danish 70-gun Ship of the Line Printz Friderich (1761 - 1780) in scale 1:48

I received from Karl in the meantime some photos during the construction and also several photos of the interieur, so I will be able to show the model much more in detail in a small building log - to be continued in short time in the area Building logs scratch built models
