#8680, "Chris' 1/250 Amati"


  

          

Dear all,

First of all, the best wishes for 2016 to everybody in this community!

Some of you might remember me from the 1/350 waterline Minicraft with lighting that I did in 2014 and early 2015. Pictures of that build are still available further down in this forum.

In the mean time I managed to sell the Minicraft, and I intend to use the experience I gathered during that build in something a bit bigger and more ambitious; the 1/250 Amati model. Essentially this project will be the same as the Minicraft build, so a waterline ship with lighting, but I will take advantage of the larger scale to obtain a higher level of detail. I am aiming for something like Art's Minicraft, but time will tell if that is feasible

However, with the Amati having a planked-frame wooden hull, I am already facing my first challenge: how to do a waterline conversion to such a hull. All the frame parts have alternating slits that allow them to slide together, but these slits will cause the frames to fall apart when sawn in half. I am still thinking of a way to circumvent this.

Anyway, it is nice to be back! My first estimate for the duration of this project is two years, so I will be here for the foreseeable future

Best regards,
Chris
