This is developing into a beautiful model of a beautiful ship.

The stern is most impressive. Did you carve all that decoration on the yellow plank? Also how are the windows made?

Wow. That is impressive work. Love the scroll work on the stern and all the detail in general.

Looking forward to seeing this progress.

Thank you, gentlemen.

@ Siwi @ The decorations are laser cut and painted yellow ochre. The windows are made of black mosquito netting :-) plus transparent foil.

Hello after a long break.

Progress is hardly visible, mainly because the preparation of "Leudo" for release took me (as usual) 4 times more time than I expected. But something has been built, so some photos of the progress on de Ruyter's flagship are.

The sides rose very slowly, more the right one, where the gun ports will be closed.


It was all glued as in the photo below:
1 - the first plating layer which extends above the deck
2 - brackets
3 - "spacer" strips on the deck
4 - inner bulwark planks (amidships)
5 - next outer layers


The gunports frames were gradually glued into the bulwark prepared in this way. And it worked, because even if there were slight shifts in relation to the internal and external openings, pasting separate individual parts of the frames hid and eliminated minor errors.


The front wall was created, but now it has only a structural role and you still have to wait for its decoration and charm:



I don't even remember why, but I glued some parts of the planking three or even four times:
or I printed the wrong version and after gluing something did not fit, or I wanted to change something, and after gluing I came to the conclusion that the previous version was better, etc. etc. The strained material can be seen e.g. at the last gunport at the stern:


I put in the gratings and some of the gun carriages.

Some artillery will be hardly visible, so I treated it as a sample. However, midship artillery will be printed and cut out manually - it will take more time, but I'm expect a better effect. It is comforting that you can use 2 mm blocks - you will always see what you are doing without a microscope:







Best wishes
Tomek

After reading your descriptions about the difficulty of the work, I thought I would write a few lines of agreement.
Paper/card modeling is difficult. However . . . as we can see in your photos . . . the results are absolutely lovely.

I didn't want my description to be "frightening" with a pile of difficulties. I would build everything faster if I had a concept from the beginning, how individual parts are to be drawn / built. For example, closed gunports flaps were to be inserted as separate parts. It looked very bad, so they are made as a one piece together with planks and only marked with a blunt needle. Then doubts arose how to make hinges for these doors: whether they were to be printed or glued from separate black narrow strips. Etc. etc. These are the "difficulties" I have encountered. Of course, on the other hand, paper modeling is difficult in many aspects, if only because printed parts cannot be leveled with sandpaper or a file. Unless the whole model is painted beautifully, just like Ab Hoving does.
But probably just the search for new solutions and ways to make a model is one of the most interesting things in our hobby.

Best wishes
