Center of attention? I think it intimidated the Heck out of all those other models!!
It got a lot of attention, indeed. Ans I guess it will get even more when it is complete in the future.
Funny sidenote: Most people thought it was build out of plastic sheet and painted with an airbrush!
Next time I will make large prints to put in front of it telling the visitors that it is a cardboard model...
wow... great job on that one...
i can't wait to see it finished...
Finally Jan released the last groups, and I can post some progress regarding my build of the SULACO!
In the last days I built the lower level of the "ridge":
That's how it looks when it is in place:
It is a few millimeters too short (you can see the "step" in the picture above, on the right side), but that is no big deal, I will simply make a little part that fills the gap, like at the end of the bow section.
More pictures soon!
Looking fantastic, Marco.:thumb:
It must be a good feeling knowing that your are nearing the finishing post.:mrgreen:
Der absolute Wahnsinn! Marco, you are a hero! :thumb:
When do you think will she be complete?
I am overwhelmed by the skill of some of you guys! Marco, Having just read this whole thread and seen the progress over the last year or so I am so impressed by this build!! It is just incredible how clean and tidy the whole thing looks! and I believe Jan the creator needs a little props too! just... WOW!!! I wouldn't know where to start with a model of this magnitude but seeing this so near to completion has inspired me to try!
Good Luck Mathius
Although I'd make on your place a few simple 'one page' models from the net to get skills honed up first.
I've made a few before, R2-D2, the serenity firefly class ship, Mewtwo a few simple Disney princesses. But every time you can still see the seams and fold marks. Some parts don't even seem to line up properly. Nothing as impressive or even in the same class as some of the models i've seem on this site.
Need to step up my game before I post any pictures me thinks.
On the contrary, post pictures - then you can get feedback what to fix and how
Preferably in your own thread
I'm not in a hurry, I'm bulding on this model for nearly exactly two years now, so a few weeks more or less won't hurt. I have some other ongoing projects, some of them have fixed finished dates because they are for articles for a magazine - so I guess I will finish the SULACO sometime in March or April 2013.
Group 24 (port side "arm") is finished:
Nice dice :mrgreen:!
Super nice you got it
This project is still alive!
Last weekend I finished the "hunchback". In the next days I will mount the side arms with large magnetic films, and then I will do the final touches by adding the last small parts.
Here are some pictures of my progress:
Group-picture "middle hull plus bow". The engine and side arms are missing because they were not necessary to mount the hunchback parts:
Nearly there Marco.....
Wonderful! (But I suppose you already know that..! ;-) )
These are the last parts:
This is where they belong:
And with these parts this 30 months project is... finished!
Last friday was the "rollout" at our local cardboard modeller meeting:
Here I replaced the background in Photoshop for a better view:
I will post some more pictures in the next 1-2 weeks, taken in front of a neutral background. I have to confess that I'm very proud of the model.
Fantastic, Marco! Great job! :thumb::thumb::thumb:
You have every right to be proud of yourself.
This is ABSOLUTELY OUTSTANDING!!!
KUDOS TO YOU ON A FINE JOB WELL DONE!!!
