#9517, "Morten Jensen's 1/144 Carpathia (Dan Reed semi kit)"


  

          

New project!

Some time ago Dan Reed completed his newest semi kit, the 1/144 scale Carpathia. It is time someone take on the challenge to build one.

This is a semi kit, just like the 1/144 Titanic. The hull is made of glass fiber and the parts that comes with the kit is made of styrene. This includes vents, winched, bollards etc, deckhouses, funnel, lifeboats, cargo hatches etc. There is a lot. But there is still a lot that has to be made from scratch. I must admit that four masts with rigging and derricks will be a challenge. Hopefully it will look good in the end.

Status: The hull is primed and getting ready for paint. It is sanded and portholes drilled out. Bow stem, anchor openings and rod added. At the stern styrene rods, rudder and propeller wings are also in place. Bilge keels in place. I hope to start painting the hull tomorrow.




The hull as it first appeared. Quite a lot of sanding had to be done.







An image of the parts that comes with the kit. One square on the green sheet is one cm.



Photo taken today after the hull was primed.



Notice the added stem.
