Rick Corts Picked this one from the shelf of doom to finally finish (I hope). Don't know why I put it on the shelf of doom honestly...
22. January at 14:03:13
Rick Corts Going to make it as a diorama. The Myoko will be moored nextto some sort of Island/land mass. A water freighter (small vessel) and fuel tanker (larger vessel) will also be in the diorama. Now i'm drawing a plan...

This will be the first water and 1/700 diorama I'm going to make. Hopefully everything will go well!
23. January at 15:57:44
Rick Corts Started work on the mountain. Also got myself a new phone. Hopefully that improves the photo quality!
26. January at 18:37:39
Peter Hardy Very interesting project Rick. I don't know how it could have been on the "shelf of doom" either. Maybe you had a problem to solve that had become a monster? Now forgotten about??? Keep working on it anyway, I am very interested in it now!

Rick Corts Welcome aboard guys!

@Peter, That could be it. Though i haven't had a look at the Myoko for now, so I still don't know yet.

I started off with the Water Carrier. It is very basic and I can't find PE for this. I decided to upgrade it a bit myself. Though i can't find pictures of this vessel i try to make it as nice as possible.

Drilled out the chimney. Added some doors to the forward superstructure. Also decided to scratch build the bridge as the part for that in the kit is just a block of plastic.
27. January at 14:56:56
Rick Corts Not sure what else i could add to this little boat before painting. After painting a life buoy and crew will be added
28. January at 11:20:08
Bart Goesaert Looking good so far... maybe for inspiration for the little ships: shipmodels.info/mws_forum/viewtopic.php?t=159615

and this one for the island: https://facebook.com/photo.p..69222&type=3&theater

28. January at 15:53:16
Rick Corts Thanks Bart! I saw and read the whole article of Marijns Amagi. It looks insane! One of my insperations, even saved it as my favorite so i can find it fast :)

I also know Hyun Soo Kim's work. Amazing artist, just like Won-Hui lee! Both of them make amazing models and diorama's! Though i missed that project you just shared. Lovely! I'm not even near that level, what a work that must be... absolutly insane!
28. January at 18:31:49
Rick Corts The mountain is ready to be painted i think. Bht before painting it will be fixed to base and made to blend in.
The Water Carrier had some minor touch ups. Only havr to figure out hoe to make a flag pole on the back side.

Started work on the Fuel Carrier as well. This should get an scratchbuild bridge as well.
4. February at 14:37:47
Rick Corts All the plasic parts for the bridge are ready for the Myoko (still dryfit for easy painting). Now working out where railing has to be added even as ladders or stairs.
6. February at 14:33:07
Rick Corts Most parts that can be assembled beforehand are done. I'll start painting those soon. The hull as well, but before I can paint the hull I'll need to change the molded stairs and doors to PE ones. That will be done tonight or tomorrow, after which I start painting (brushpainting as I'm not convinced in spraying the tamiya paints which I'm going to use)
