    Hello friends,
    I have reduced pictures in this construction report. Now I try the new pictures functioning, then request administrator should show to extinguish you around my complete construction reports of Bismarck and Rodney. Then I will have again a lot burst for new pictures.

    With the best greetings

    It functioned!
    I ask administrator for my earlier construction reports of "Bismarck" and Rodney HMS to extinguishing.

    I will also reduce the last pictures after one week to one.

    Hello Christoph,

    your old steamer with guns looks superb. It's a shame, that I can following your progress only on The CD with pictures of the Victory and my project "Graf Spee" is on the way to you...

    with the best wishes

    Hello, Christophe! :D

    I always know when you post another update on your amazing builds my eyes will be treated to some extraordinary work...and it has been again this time. :shock: :shock: :shock:

    Truly a beautiful model and a feast for all to behold!

    One thing I noticed in checking out the Kartonbau postings you had a great shot from forward of the bow before the forward turret was installed...what a great photo, showing the anchor cable and other superb details of the bow and along the casemate decks (is that the correct term?)!

    One question, if I did you determine where to rig the funnel stays and how did you carry that out so cleanly and perfectly taunt? Really, there is so much one can learn from a master such as yourself, I do look forward to you threads. I see you have the HMS Victory and Hood on your list of the next projects...that will be another treat to see and I hope to learn a few more tricks from you. :D

    Thanks so much!

    Jim, on behalf of Christoph, let me answer your questions.

    The placement of the funnel stays was determined from photos of the original. The stays were made from streched plastic sprue - as was the complete rigging by the way. Also on Rodney and Bismarck I used the same material by the way. The plastic (remainders from plastic kits) was carefully warmed and then pulled to the desired thickness.

    @Rob: Why not join Christoph and myself to build the Victory together. We plan on doing some detailing work together and it would be even more fun if you would join and take advantage of what we work out.

    Michael (lending Christoph a little bit of English writing)...

    Hi Michael

    Thats a dam good idea, I will be over on the other site a fair bit now.

    My copy should be here soon, I look forward to learning a lot and having fun doing it.
    Are you and christoph going to be using any photo etch parts or scratch building them when needed?

    Best regards

    Hi Christoph

    Thanks mate.

    With this ship I have spent a lot of hours walking her decks and have done a little work on her maintenance while my ship was along side in Portsmouth dockyard. I will be back down to Portsmouth in the New Year and will take a load of photos off how she is now.

    My copy should be here soon, I don't know if you have yours yet.
    I have a block plan in my stash of drawings. This weekend is going to be a block making weekend as I need a lot for the ships I have to build and for a mate on here. So out will come the block jigs :roll:

    This is going to be fun :lol:

    At the risk of digressing from this amazing building thread, may I ask if the HMS Victory kit you fine gentlemen are talking about is the Shipyard kit?

    Thanks for the reply, Michael! Using stretched sprue is a superb technique and Christophe has done an outstanding job of it on this and his other models. I did a very elementary job of it way back when in building plastic ship models, so it is a technique I am familiar with, I just plum forgot about it! :oops:

    If you fellows build Victory together I hope you remember to give us the link to watch what will be an incredible building thread. :D
