My name is Gonzalo. I´m a friend of Hugo. We are ship modelers. Hugo is building the Titanic and He don´t know english and internet (I´m very bad in english). We are from Rosario, Argentine. Hugo is 52 years old. He was a lathe operator. Now he is a barber or coiffeur.
No wheel punch. He used many templates. He used resin epoxy and amine tertiary (Poxipol, trademark).
He is building the Titanic since Cameron´s film. Many years ago. Also, he finished a ship bottle, Santa María, Bounty and a Greek Oplita, a french cuirassier and his horse and highlander scotsman (a soldier).
More photos to come.
Criticism welcome. Thank you very much.

Dear Hugo,

I find your work really amazing!

You create your template from which shots?

The copper plates of what it's thickness?

With what you achieve your rivets?

Still one more question how did you make the hull in fiberglass?

Regarding the anchor I can help you more I send you my plan for the anchor.
I hope that my plan will help anchor you to improve your extraordinary work.

Best regards.



In French:

Cher Hugo,

Je trouve votre travail vraiment extraordinaire !

Vous avez réaliser votre modèle à partir de quelle plans ?

Les plaques de cuivre de quelle épaisseur son elle ?

Avec quoi vous réaliser vos rivets ?

Encore une question de plus comment avez vous réaliser la coque en fibre de verre ?

Pour ce qui est de l'ancre je peut vous aider plus je vous envoie mon plan de l'ancre.
J'espère que mon plan de l'ancre vous aidera pour améliorer votre extraordinaire travail.

Sincère salutation.

1)The drawings are from Italy, Association Bolognese; 1/100 scale and it´s made from original blueprints. However, the bow frames came with errors.
2)0.2 mm thickness plate copper.
3)A template was used with holes at same location of rivets. Plastic card templates. Many templates. Many of them. Each template was draw 10 times big than 1/135 scale. Later reduced to scale. A punch was used with a stop for not to pierce the copper plate. Each rivet flattened at surrounding area with a needle (from a medical syringe) cut at 90°. Later, the copper plate was put on template with rivets on each hole, using the same template but using the other side, and then a roller flattened the entire plate (the side for the cement).
4)The hull was carved in two halves. Each halve was made from artificial wood in several layers (each 1 inch). A final layer of Epoxy was applied and sand it. Later a negative mold or cast was made with plaster of Paris. Later a layer of gauze was applied. Again a layer of plaster of Paris, gauze, plaster of Paris, gauze, plaster of Paris, etc, etc, etc……………………… 80 Kg of plaster of Paris (like a hospital plaster cast). Finally a fiber glass hull was made from these two negative molds or cast in usual way.

Thank you very much for your drawings. I hope you understand this text. If not, let´s me know.
Best Regards.
