That is nice. A very clean build.
This is my first designing model. I don't have previous work. I've short learnt about painting program. I am just a painting beginner.
I saw your paint works. They were wheatering added,very nice looking. I'm not sure if i can do as well as you. Hope to learn some painting technics from you when coloring work starts.
Today I start building snorkel section.
Picture shows cylinder and arm.

Very nice, your attention to detail continues to impress.
That snorkel detail was just too much to believe! You're putting plastic models to shame. I continue to be impressed by this model every time I check this thread. I will definitely be on the waiting list for this one.
Since you have already tackled the hard part. The 2D portion should only be icing on an already tasty cake.
Thanks for your suggestion ,Stev.
After I complete white modeling and debug some points. I may need volunteers for coloring.
Hi to all
I did a big mistake in design. There was a crash of parts when cylinder moved. I did not check movement of each part well. I found when trying assembly. So I corrected design to avoid crash. See in attached figures.
And changed float ball shape from tube to be sphere.

Sphere shape Floating Ball Valve

Nice work on the mechanism! (Does it really moves?!) Kooklik, how are you going to design the sphere shape? It looks quite small to me.
Nezard I try to make it really movable. For sphere I'll use a ball at the needle tip. Its size is closed to the real one in 1/72 scale.
Here is my secret weapon:grin:

Nice idea! So... it's not purely paper? Never mind, still looks great anyway~
I don't strict to purely paper. There's no rules. If it looks beautiful apply more any ideas. :grin:
I can only imagine what it felt like when that ball valve slammed shut from a high wave and those huge diesels tried to suck the sir out of the boat. Painful!
Cylinder is moveavle. But tonight i can't finish all of this section.

Wow, that's an engineering marvel!
Superb workmanship! Just beautiful!
just keeps getting better and better
please, please, please
You gotta make this available. Please.
Movable parts are always an eye-catcher!!
a true work of art!
