Re: Moving on to the decks

Thank you for the kind thoughts.
It's is still most painful but it is healing. It's a long process. I'm only 5 weeks from my injury, still have a long way to go.

I'm keeping busy with other less fiddiley models trying to learn to compensate with my other fingers.

Re: Moving on to the decks

This build diary is now on hold. I had the misfortune to put a finger into a tablesaw at work and as a result had part of that finger amputated. It's still splinted and bandaged so at this point I really don't know how much of it I actually lost. It is my hope that after a recovery period and time t...

Moving on to the decks

I just had to try out the bulkhead panel graphics I downloaded. Now that the main deck is glued into place the First class Private Promenades are added next. So here is the result. They were slightly over size but given the fact they won't be seen except with great effort, once the promenade deck is...

Re: Starting the hull

Thanks Pete!Last night I got the main deck glued into the hull. Another long process. The deck is in two pieces of long very flexible styrene. Of course the hull is wider than the deck, so it was glue-clamp a couple inches at a time. Down on side and then the other. All told that amounted to 50 and ...

Re: Starting the hull

Over the weekend I finally got the hull mounted to it's base. This is a big model so I wanted something a little more substantial the the rickety plastic base that came with the kit. So I being a woodworker, cut and routed a piece of oak 20" long and 6" wide. After some stain and 2 coats of semi glo...

Re: Starting the hull

It took me a bit of searching but I've found 2 Titanic Specials on Saturday night here. They may be repeats but I'll be watching anyway. I believe one of them has to do with the stokehold fire. It should be interesting to watch. It's been said for years that the boiler room bulkhead collapsed speedi...

Re: Starting the hull

No Pete I havent seen the documentary. I have heard about the news of the fire. As you said rather old news. I too have know about it for years I read the entire testimony of the US Senate Investigation and The British Board Of Trade Inquiry. The stokehold fire was if memory serves brought up during...

Re: Starting the hull

Right you are. The internal lining for the number 4 funnel is blanked off except for the galley vent. So I should have no problem keeping that one distinguished from the other 3. I'll be opening that and extending the vent pipe down to give it some visual depth.

Re: Starting the hull

Thank you kind sirs. as I said in the previous post, I'll be piddling a bit. There are so many sub assemblies and PE parts to fold that I'm just going to bump along. I spent a couple of hours this afternoon cleaning flash from between the steam pipes on a funnel. Very tedious work. http://i250.photo...

Re: Starting the hull

Trying to get back to this build. Forgive me the for the long hiatus, life has thrown me a few curves. As of late, I've gotten the juices stirring to bring the old girl back out to the bench and restart the building process. To that end I have been refreshing my research into the ship and the improv...
