Very nice, A great build thisd is what I call Champain modelling
Thank you very much, Muzza-san !!
I spent 4-5 hours each for a day of this week end.
This is the a few progress of today.















Some rather large plates on the roof are just for test fitting.

Thanks for looking.

Looking great katsu. Definetly some battle ship parts will look great for a bridge.
Thanks, Al-san.

I started to think about conning tower.
After some draw and trash, here is the sketch for.



And 3D-ing

Using the plastic grille. The flower pot stuff.









Let's see how it goes.

















That's it for a day.

Thanks for looking !
 
Katsu. could almost turn it into a catamaran or some kind of ocean going ship. its a great cross over ship. its so cool and works on a few different levels

That bridge makes it look like a futuristic cruise ship.
Outstanding.

Thank you very much, gentlemen !!
So far it looks like a millionaire's pleasure boat:lol.

Today I started to detail up the tower.

Scored the groove on the plates for 0.25 FO.

















Add a few more detail and then to the upper deck.

The trench on the aft deck behind this tower will be like a petrochemical complex.

Thanks for looking.

Hi ! thanks for looking.
I saw your CCXRed2 is in a trouble right now.
It happens but I guess your skill can fix it faster than you think.:thumbsup
I believe you'll make it all right.:love

Today, I could squeezed out one and half hours to build before I get to my job. So I did a little preparation for tomorrow.

Last time I did the lighting with optic fibers, I had a hard time to fix those fibers in the layers.

I had to make many of these parts with my awkward fingers.


I've been thinking about any other way to make it more efficiently.
And I don't think it's a best way to do but I fixed the some kind of 'bed' for the fiber like this.

I made this with a acrylic plate and aluminum tube and a couple of screw bolts. 



Then I set up the fibers on it like a wires in a grand piano with a double side glue tape.
Unfortunately, I had cut all the 0.25 fibers in 1 feet long some days ago, I have to did this one by one
but if you have a long straight line of fiber, all you have to do is just reel the fiber around and around.





Then I inserted the plastic piece with superglue from the side way. and sandwiched with the other sheet plastic.





And then I cut it up. This time I could make it two in 30 min.







I will cut them in an appropriate length and put it in a layers.

There must be some other better way to do this but I will try with this, this time.

Thank for looking.

Katsu.

Incredible!

Yeah I'm not sure if there is any better method of installing fiber optics. I just do a small section at a time and then glue that section in from the backside with Aleenes tacky glue, which is like Elmers only thicker. CA might attack and break a strand. Or you can slightly melt the end so that it mushrooms and can't fall back through the hole. I prefer a dab of glue on each one though.

You got a deep experience to handle those things. Thanks for the advice !!

Here is a little progress for a couple of days.







































That's the 6 hours progress
Thanks for looking.
