Maurice,
What you say about Micael is true, I fully agree.
About your comment on my existence and terrible behaviour. This morning I burned my models and cut off my right hand. After that I smashed my son’s computer. I promise never to bother you again.
Thanks anyway. It’s just paper...

Thank you for effort

Hello Abhovi,



i just wanted to say thank you very much for your effort,

Scratchbuilding a model is one thing, but also making a tutorial is another thing. Now one has a plan to build such a model.

Thank you very much!!! Especially since sailing ships are the king respectively the Queens of the sea!!!
Many thanks from germany



Thomas

Thank you very much for writing up and posting the ship building tutorial.
You made a very intimidating subject a lot more approachable.



Here are some hints about making your own scale size ropes and hawsers
Rigging: Making rope without ropewalk
A three or four strand hair twister can be used as the basis of a miniature rope walk.

You can simplify construction of your model ship by printing gratings, rather than building them from paper strips.

There are many internet sites with wood pics: wood identification libraries, sites for woodworkers, wood texture collections , from which you can download pictures of wood surfaces that you can use to make paper planks.
Enter "wood textures" into your favorite search engine
or go to one of these sites for wood images
HobbitHouse Wood ID site (wow!!!!!!)

Wood Identification Guide | The Wood Database
Identification Of Common North American Woods
and many others, too numerous to list them all.

You are right John, I only scratched the surface. For carved decorations for instance I use two component stuff called Magic Sculpt. See my other threads. There are lots of other suggestions to make the job easier. Finding solutions is one of the creative ways to build a scratch-build model. And it never costs you a week's pay. If you don't like the result, discard it and start anew. :-)
