Dear Hugo:
I think your craftsmanship is first rate. One question I have is why did you choose a scale of 1/135? I've never seen a model built to that scale.

Regards,
Bob Read

The 1/135 scale was chosen because is not a commercial scale. Nobody can says me that the model ship has commercial fitting or the hull was bought from a model shop.
The hand made pieces or hull are better than commercial fitting. Also, a model ship made by hand has greater value. Of course there are commercial fitting better than hand made ones. It depends by ship modeler skills.
Another reason is that at 1/135 scale there are a good level of details. It was a result of many factors to choose this scale, one of them is the final size of the pieces. At 1/100 scale its a model ship too big. At 1/150 or 1/200 scale, some problems appears to make fine details.
Finally, a true modeler makes the entire ship by himself.
At least, this is my way of feeling and thinking (and many other ship modelers too).
Thank you for yours opinions.
Cheers.

Hugo,

You must be sick of cutting and applying hull plating at this point. I'd say PATIENCE has a name....and it's Hugo.

Looks fantastic, sir. I can't imagine how much copper plating you are using for JUST the hull. Keep the pictures coming.....

Matt

Hi Hugo,

absolutely amazing, to cut, bend and glue these copper plates in that perfection onto the hull, especially at the propeller shafts.

Thank you for documenting your fantastic work!

I am beginning to build a wooden plug of the hull in 1/144th scale onto which I will solder tinplate pieces just as you have done with your copper tape. I will then remove the wooden plug leaving a tinplate shell. Your photos will serve as the missing angles of the ship we don't often see. Your detail is so good and realistic that I will use it has reference for my model! I look forward to the rest of your model and wonderful photos!
-Tyler

The best shell plating ever seen...simply FANTASTIC....
I look in advance for some photos of the particulars of the hull, such the ash ejectors holes, main discharge holes, low and high moorings, doors, great portholes and much more...
Your model is my reference...
Respect...

Hey Matt, talk about hundreds of details to consider?? Hugo's build has to be in the thousands of details.

Hugo you are a master craftsmen.

Hi Hugo,
it's holiday for me when you post some new photos...
Your shell plating is without doubt the best I ever saw in a scale under the 1:48 of Peter Davies Garner...
Five stars....

Hi Hugo,

very nice work and a good idea to build up the bilge keels from separate brass or copper profiles. This set up a new very high standard to build these parts.

Regards,

Michael

Your work is amazing, Hugo.

May I ask how you are bending the copper in such a precise manner? Are you hammering or bending in a small metal brake of some sort?

To GuitylerHam:

The copper sheet was cut with a dremel cutting disc:




And the pieces are folded with a modified ordinary vise to this purpose:

Hi Hugo,
I'm simply speechless: the quality of your model is STRATOSPHERIC !!!!!!!
Can you explain how you engraved the name's letters on the copper plates?
Thanks in advance.
Filippo

P.S. : the hull plating of your model is one of the best I ever saw...

Hi Hugo,

outstanding, perfect quality, the copper plating and the metal screws.
It looks most impressive, heavy and solid, especially, when resting on small keel blocks like the real ship.

Regards,

Michael

Hi Hugo,
I'm near paintings the forecastle deck structures, as bollards, roller fairleads, chain races etc..
I like the color you used:

I imagined it is a mixture of colors...
Can you tell us something about that ?
Thanks in advance.
Filippo

Can you explain a little bit better how you used ammonia for weathering ? And is it only for the upper brass part of the capstans ? For the other part of captstans, did you use the drybrush method ?
I noticed that you are a man of few words, but of enormous capabilities, and it's a waste for us Titanic's enthusiasts not take advantages from your skill and capabilities...
Cheers.
Filippo

Hola Filippo. No es que sea de pocas palabras,el problema es
que no hablo bien Ingles. Necesito de mi amigo para que me
traduzca lo que quiero decir. Yo uso el traductor de google y
no es conveniente porque no transmite bien lo que uno expresa.
Te pido mil disculpas  a ti y alos demas por parecer tener una
imagen de pocas palabras. En cuanto me reuna con mi amigo te
prometo que te lo explicare mejor. Te felicito por tu
trabajo, que es muy bueno y he notado que te gusta estudiar
muy bien los detalles para hacer un buen trabajo. Sigue asi
que vas muy bien , adelante con el buen trabajo. Saludos y un
fuerte abrazo  para todos mis colegas.   HUGO.

Thanks Ugo for your reply....
We both are latinos, and so, although I'm Italian, I have
understand almost all your spanish words....
Don't worry for your English.. sometimes photos speak better
than words....
Otherwise sometimes some explanations are necessary to take
advantage of some modeler's skills....
I confirm that your model is one of the I ever saw, and your
capabilities with brass is surely the best I ever saw.
Best regards.
Filippo

Hi Hugo, hi Gonzalo,

very impressive, the high quality copper plating looks
perfect, also the deck planking!

I think, it must have been difficult to bend the plates to
the perfect shape/radius, as shown at your model, as metal
springs back a bit and you have to overbend to achive a
certain radius.

Good luck and best regards,

Michael

amazing work on this model. I have been waiting for an update
for a long time. This is probably a silly question, but is
this model going to be painted?

Hi Hugo
The forward well deck waterway was 15-1/2 inches wide and was covered by a wooden limber board. There was no structure on the bulwark that passengers could stand on to look over the bulwark. To lift themselves higher they would stand on the bars across the open wash ports. On Titanic these wash port openings were open and had no covers like on early Olympic. They had safety bars across their openings. The drawing below shows an elevation and a plan view of the starboard forward well deck bulwark.
Regards,
Bob Read
