    • Tony, I am watching your ship take shape and am really impressed. I watched two new passenger ships being built in a shipyard in Venice for Seabourn and other than you using card and we used 18mm steel the build is almost the same! I hope you are keeping the ferry company up to date with the build. They would be delighted to see it.   cheers mark
    • Hello!
      Since the attachment of the higher levels to the concrete walls proved to be very tedious, I have now covered these walls with 20 mm wood panels.
      In March, it will continue, because tomorrow I will fly for three weeks to Thailand and Cambodia. Best Regards Thomas
    • At long last I have cut the bottom plate and laid down the keel, she looks awesome joined up, will have o have a flat surface when I finely glue and join the send section to the ow section, have decided to finish off the full hull and then rebuild the bow section improving from mistakes, I pushed in the 18mm square dowel and couldn't get it out had to cut the dowel off to size.   I will be building the bulkheads different this time and the main deck goes in later with it painted and trailer lanes marked, works out well will do that on the next two sections and the bow rebuild For sure the rest of the ship be very easy to build square hull down to the water line, quite happy with tonight's work, the first bulkhead be the one that joins to the bow section, Camdale layout will have to be hold till March, this week is going to be a stinker of a week 35 degrees tomorrow, 38 on Tuesday and Wednesday 42 degrees, today was 35 degrees C  as well, I didn't last long outside, in the afternoon decided to mark the bridge arch bottom framing in the nice cool hobby room. No cutting will have to wait till the last afternoon early morning to do that, going to build the station building out of 1mm card so I build it in the cool hobby room. Tony from very hot down under a storm on Tuesday 
    • Hi Roddy, many thanks for that card link, yes I can use some of those building especially the loco work shop building, I am looking into other card models especially trailers sadly have to be 87 scale is what the model ship scale is, even containers out of card, save some money too as the RTR models are too dear now and some out of reach for some modules. I am looking into PDF files on 737 modules want to check the scale the models are in, can go to a print shop and they resize the prints foe me, saving half the time in scratch building a 737 fuselage in 87 scale. The morning is quite cool still, heading out after brekkie are wok on the bridge , no point doing any think on the last stage of the layout till it gets cooler.   The thoughts  go out to the glaziers up north doing it tough after the big flood loosing most of their cattle , up around Townsville to Mt Isa down to Longreach, very widespread, they were in a 5 year drought, played for rain got it and prayed for it to stop, now the big clean up and still copping storms what you get for living in the tropics. Tony from down under keeping on moving ahead
