Then I had to make dinner and be a functioning adult for a little. Then I got some paint down real quick before bed time.



That Hull Red sure looks brown in the jar. Would like to add in a little bit more red on my next ship. and Hey!! Did my own boot line and it turned out ok!

Dry fit all together as of this morning



Now I need to seal it up and start the weathering so make it look half way decent.

Thanks for looking!

Keeping this thread alive!

Got some AB done this weekend



Also painted some 53 Corvette pieces since I got the black out. You can see some in the background.

Touched up the deck and TRIED to hand paint some Tamiya. I would say at best, I got mixed results.

Got a little work done this weekend.

Taped off the hull but didn't break out the AB yet.



Hand painted the deck. Let me tell ya, there are two ways I thought of doing this: Painted the whole piece deck color and hand painting the little bits, or the wrong way. Guess which way I chose.



Either way, progress!!!

And then you realize you have enlisted to a campaign and not even told the world what model you'll be finishing

For this campaign i will attempt to finish the Italeri S.L.C. 200 "Maiale". I started this kit a few years ago. Construction wasn't problematic, if i remember correct. The PE bits are fiddly, but doable. I primed the kit with Vallejo UK Bronze Green, the figures with (i assume) Vallejo Black primer. Then put the model in a box when moving town and have not opened it up since then.

These are the bits in the box:


And this is everything taken out:


Only 1 small piece of PE broken off. Not a bad result

Hi Charlie,

I have to admit... I enjoy - forgive me - crappy kits! They provide great opportunities to take some low risk chances in trying out new techniques. You've got the right idea; be bold, throw some paint around! You will undoubtedly learn something, and even if it is a total disaster you are only out seven bucks, right? I built the Lindberg Scharnhorst years ago, made a glorious mess of it - but I still had a great time, and learned a lot.




I am having a lot of fun!! I am gonna try some things with this one and it doesn't bother me much of it isn't perfect. This site has been a hug inspiration to get back into modeling again. Even with the limited time I have, I love it!!

Well lets see if this works.

The workspace with the bits all ready



Then I layed down some paint. No primer this time, just some alcohol wipes I "procured" from work to clean it up.



This kit only has two sprues outside the one piece hull and deck. Not a complicated model but I have to admit: a small fear I may be using the airbrush incorrectly has caused some hesitation on my part.

But, practice makes perfect. Since I got this kit for $7 at Hobby Lobby, it will be my test mule before I get something I really want to build.

What the Hell.

I am in!! I have a 1/750 KGV I have kind of started that I really need to get done. I will post a picture of it when I get home once I figure out how to post pictures.

That sail looks quite a bit better than painted plastic.

Here are 3 photos of the ship. I have not mounted the paddle wheels, and paddle boxes until I finish the rigging. The sail,which I copied, more or less form the plastic one from the kit, is made from silk span and painted with acrylic paint. I used elastic thread of different sizes for the fixed and running rigging.













I intend to make a topssail and main sail for the fore mast and a jib/fore stayssail. also I have yet to finish the shrouds and ratlines.

The Lindberg kit was originally released as the United States Revenue Cutter Harriet lane. It was built in 1857. It was 'drafted' into the US Navy during the Civil War, captured by the south, and converted to a fast blockade runner. From what I read it could do 11 knots -not bad. More info on the Harriet lane and blockade runners to come in future posts.

Good morning all.

I would like to join in this GB. I started my first ship model last autumn of 2017, and it has been pretty slow going. (The last ship model I did was about 50 years ago when I was still in my teens. I think it was Revell's HMS Victory.)

Anyway after re-starting scale modelling as a hobby about 8 years ago I built exclusively aircraft - mostly biplanes, and Inter-War. I found it was getting a bit stale so that's why I decided to have a go at ships again.

After much research I decided on Lindberg's Blockade Runner (USRC Harriet Lane). It has been slow going as there isn't much reliable information on it. So I chose to make a generic side wheel steamer of the post US Civil War era.

I was stalled many times doing research on rigging techniques, sail making etc., so I thought that entering this group would motivate me to finish.

I have participated in several GB's on Aeroscale, so I am familiar with how GB's work and the Campaign Gallery etc. I will be posting some photos of the in-progress model soon. The kit was inexpensive and the parts pretty sharp with not much flash.

Someone asked how to go about a campaign, so here is a link to a campaign tutorial thread I wrote a few years ago for Armorama. It should still work for other Kitmaker sites.

Here is my entry for this campaign, Revell's Haven-Class "S.S. Hope". She been sitting around the bench this past year after I develop an urge to build armor. I am over that now and ready to take on some delayed ship builds. I thought this one deserves to be finish.

Actually it's a diorama of a modeler taking the paint off a sub. It took forever to get the water effect just right.
