DD-850 update

Hi All,

Decided to finish the prototype, so parts of the finished model will not have to be redrawn. It should be a straight build. Got the basic hull work under construction during the weekend. The prototype has just about everything that it needs, the practice loading trainer and the DASH safety nets. The chocks and cleats were intentionally omitted along with most of the railing, since drawings are done and tested. Here are the most recent photos.

Regards, rjccjr

DD-850 update

Hi All;

Over the weekend, I attended a model ship show in Newburyport Massachusetts. The intention was to demonstrate that ships can be made of cardstock, and intended to make a little progress on the final model. Set up the job and discovered that the folder containing the parts, was still at home. Hoping to salvage something of the day, I decided to resort to using bamboo slivers for truss-work and whip antennas on the prototype model. It wound up looking not too bad and the proper sizes for these parts are now determined and drawn. Attached is the result of the day's work.

Regards, rjccjr

Arrow DD-850 update

Hi All;

Finished the build. Decided to omit the railings. The resulting prototype looked fairly good so I over sprayed it with semi-matte spray to make the ink jet printed model water resistant and put it on a base. Attached is a progressive series of shots, showing a step by step creation of a lazy man's ocean. Thought some of you might find it interesting. The base is an old piece of scrap from a door frame replacement. On it is lathered a choppy sea of acrylic modeling paste applied with a teri-yaki skewer to create waves. The outline of the hull was drawn in with pencil and the paste applied around it. The model was tested in the cavity and removed. Acrylic artists paint mixed of blue, green and black was applied. The paint mixture was intentionally uneven to create variegated color tones. A little bit of white was introduced at the bow, midships and stern to create wash corresponding to a destroyer moving at twenty knots in a choppy sea with the waves coming at the ship about forty degrees off the port bow. When the paint was dry, the model was was attached to the base by fairing it into the cavity with white modeling paste and left to cure. The final steps were to balance the wash with dry brush white paint, then over spray the model with semi matte spray from a can. When everything is completely dry I'll douse the ocean with gloss acrylic floor polish.
