Every time I see your work it makes me jealous. Don't know how you do it.

Really nice progress.

How did you print such a thick paper with your printer? Have you a special printer?

Thank you eatcrow2. Thank you Ab. Thank you Christian.

(It is not a commercial ad!)
Christian, I bought the simplest Brother (DCP-T300). The instruction says it can print on thicker paper, but only "special photo paper made by Brother". I printed on cheap laser paper and maybe this is the reason, why prints are not perfect and colours are different on different papers (180g and 90g). But it is OK for my "test-colour-models".

Beautiful hull.
I admire the finely crafted planking.
It's perfect technique for the old sailing vessels.

Hello,
I did some details on "Duyfken", so have a look.

1. Window decorations are made with thick paint on paper stripes, than glued to the model:


2. To make "railings" I used three layers of cardboard, where the one in the middle is yellow:


3. Finally the stern can be shown, as I rebuild it three times. I change the crest of Fremantle to Amsterdam one (thank you Ab for pointing me the correct one:-). The picture with a dove is made of two layers, the upper part with the sailship is so small, that my printer did not print the phrase "A 1606":-)))


4. The head timbers are so small and so "complicated" in 1:100 scale, that I decided to glue railings first, then I adjusted and trimmed timbers:


5. So now she looks like this:




Best
Tomek

Beautiful work Tomek.
It certainly does look like a ship made of wood.

It does indeed. Was going to say that I love the railing and head timber work but couldn't let the stern and window decorations go unremarked. I love the whole ship but that sounds so generic and your work is many levels above that.

Really nice, Tomek. Thanks for the hint with the printer.
I love white models and to paint them with acrylic and oil colors.

Hi, everybody.
Thank you for comments, they are motivating.
As December '17 was the worst month in my life, I was not able to focus on building models. Now things look better and I am back:-)

I prepared many details for Dufken: artillery, deadeyes, cleats, gunport lids and so on, etc, etc...
A lion is more similar to "Alien" creatures, but in 1:100 is acceptable. I made it of cardboard layers and thick glue. Then painted:


Nothing innovatory with the artillery:


The anchor:


I also made the smallest single and double blocks in my life. They are 1,5 mm long, but with hooks they were still too big for rigging the artillery. Finnaly I cut off hooks and simply glued them to gun carriages.


I placed all the details on the ship and now she is ready for masts and sails:





(next pictures in the next post)....

Tomek
