Haha Roland, duno if Cairo has been incredible, but thank you for your kind comment. But the praise should go to the designer and manufacturer, because everything went togehter perfectly. The rest is good magnifiying glasses and patience :)

@Norbert, one of a dozen. Hope I will bring this to an end before I start another one :D

Not in the flesh, she has a strong connection to Liverpool and an exhibition in the Maritime Museum at the moment. Very hard to find this kit though.

What a pretty little steamer ! I like these old vessels with the square superstructure and an open bridge, when was it built ?
4. January, 18:36
Ingmar Stöhr
Wow! What a nice result!
4. January, 18:48
Christian Bruer
Hi Hanno, Ingmar, thank you for your kind words :)

Yep I much like these type of vessels too, and I am wondering, why there is no market for this type of ships!?

Happy Modelling, Christian
5. January, 16:48
Christian Bruer
Hanno, I missed to answer your question. Shotton was built at Cochrane&Sons in 1909. She was built for Thomas Coppack & Co. and transport vegetables and fruits in between France and Great Britain. She was well built and fast (up to 11,5kn) but lack of cargo space. She served untill 1949 for different companies. In 1949 she was destroyed by a fire. If you are interested in these type of ships I can highly recommend the book "Steam Coasters and Short Sea Traders" by C.V. Waine & R.S. Fenton. Excellent book with a lot of information, basic layout plans, photos and drawings.

Cheers, Christian

Hey Martin, wow wow wow, to much praise IMHO. As I have seen lately at SMC in Veldhoven, there are much more talented modellers than me.
And I like it to look up to others creating wonderful models and dioramas with all their excellent ideas, skills and techniques.

Anyhow, I'm pleased that you like my work and share you impressions and that counts!

Cheers, Christian

Well, nearly one year ago I painted the tiny Sd.Kfz.222, so the paint should be dry enough now :D

I wanted to represent the peeling green brown Africa colour and the appearing basic gray colour. First I have added a oil colour wash with dark brown. Once dry I painted carefully all adges with Vallejo German Gray by hand brush. This procedure was done untill I was satisfied with the result. At last I start highlighting all upper surfaces with white Oil colour.
Some dust along ght chassies and wheels was done with pastel calks.
So I let it dry (hopefully not one year) and than the decals and some details.
Cheers, Christian

14. November 2020, 22:42
Christian Bruer
Thank you Lode :) Hope you and your family are well!?

To paint all the bits and pieces, including the Modern Armies in Miniatures palm tree, the Black Dog accessories and the D-Day Miniature Studio figures made a lot of fun. I use Vallejo acrylics to paint all the parts and tried to choose a wide variation of colours to get a good colour modulation when all the parts are coming together.
Happy Modelling

Hey Ingmar, thank you for your kind words. I did some modelmaking during the summertime, but lost a bit the patience to continue on one project. So there are a lot of projects in doing, some of them as a Group Built on FB on Modellschmiede Hämelerwald. I hope to finish the one or other till the end of this year :D

The old Italeri scale 1/72 F-104C is still a kit with a good basic fuselage and wings. The overall dimensions are ok, but there is a misshap with the position of the wingtip tanks. They are to much forward and have to be corrected in postion if required. The cockpit and wheel bays lack a lot of details and the clear parts does not fit very well. But all in all it is the only available F-104C to built an early Starfighter that saw service in Vietnam. So up we go and modifie all the necessary details with aftermarket and scratch built techniques using styrene in variuse sizes and profiles.

knowing how attention you give to kits, I think there is something you may want to correct... the antenna in center right box of picture 8, is not round, but flat. of course round will probably be a lot more robust but....
26. September 2020, 08:21

Ups, mmhh may the did not have any more flat material and used some left over rod material for the antenna :D
