Very nice ulf. Nice color scheme. I think I see some sails in the background that you plan to install too ?

Taking a short break from rigging building Revells 1:1200 Titanic! (the irony of the name and scale! :D I expect it to be a quick one.

I’m working on the same build now and a bit behind you. I find this project to be very paint-intensive, especially in creating the wood-stained finishes. Also, poorly fitting parts needs much adaptation.

It’s looking good on my end and your photo is very clean and just like the box. -Nice.

Thank you. It is now yet another pause in the build. I am currently working on Hellers french tuna-fishing boat in 1:125 scale.

Sorry. Didn’t mean to slow you down. Just sharing my own struggle. But I like the painting. I like it all. I don’t care if it takes me a year to complete a project. I like the process as much as the outcome. Think about it this way. You put your mind and creativity into modeling. I think about rigging solutions as I sit in traffic on the way home from work. When the project is over, I need to find another energy consumer.

Besides, I only have time to work on projects on weekends since every workday for me is a 12 hour day. (For another 2 years, 10 months and 22 days anyway). After moving my shop to a new home in NC, I’ll be in the shop ever day. And loving life!

Good luck with your project my friend.

Hi Ulf! That's great news! We would love to see the build log (Yay!!!) of French tuna-fishing boat if it is possible? Don't have to be from the start, though... :cool:
