The Model Ship - Part 1064
This is not a tutorial. It is more of a daily personal diary, or perhaps a vlog, centered around the building of plastic model ships. Don’t be surprised when I unexpectedly, but usually just momentarily, get into something completely unrelated.
I was big into building models years ago. Apparently I’m trying to bring back “the good old days” by building plastic model ships. In this series I’ve already built Trumpeter’s 1/200 scale battleship Bismarck and a very large model ship case that will hold three ( maybe four) 1/200 scale ships. Now we are building Trumpeter’s 1/200 scale HMS Hood. I now have on hand Trumpeter’s 1/200 scale HMS Rodney, and it is my intent to start on it as soon as th...

    Hi Ron, wondering if you have enough material for your sprue pen perhaps when hood is done before you start Rodney?

    The unspoken part about "It's not rocket science!" when talking about mistakes that are obvious to spot after committing them, is that the mistakes made in rocket science usually result in either a spectacular impact crater or a pretty big fireball. That thought always makes me feel better when I goof, anyway. My mistakes rarely result in craters or fireballs, and until the statute of limitations expires, the less said about THOSE the better... ;)

    Hi Ron, HMS Hood Association web page , colour schemes, the shafts were painted the same colour as the hull, which,as pointed out by Steve In the model shed, was actually dark grey. But,that’s a discussion already had and resolved so, whatever you think looks good 😉. Have a great day. Cheers

    Well Ron, I have to say that I could definitely see a difference in the quality of today's video. It was like I was standing right next to you as you were working. Very crisp, clear and bright. In Robert's book the part you couldn't remember the name of is listed as a shaft "A" bracket and its supports are called as as palm. Page 54 photo B10/1 items 13 and 14. See ya tomorrow.

    Yeah, the big grabby things outside are just to hold the shaft from flopping around. And then big ol' thrust blocks inboard for the props to push against. Also, there's a kit coming out from Border Models soon that I think you might enjoy, a full bore 1/35th Uboat conning tower. ;D I should really get started on my LST I think, lmao..

    Only thing I would be concerned about on using a rubber band on a cable like you did would be to make a slightly larger loop - use about 2 inches of the cable in the loop. That reduces the internal strain on the wires going into the connector. Sometimes they aren't as well anchored to the inside of the connector as you might think. One of the most frequent problems I had to deal with when repairing headsets in the Army was wires pulled loose from the internal connectors of the plugs; about a 30 minute repair job. I will admit to getting really irritated with one guy who kept unplugging his headset by yanking on the cord instead of pulling on the connector. After one long, long night where he had broken his headset 3 times in less than 2 hours, I repaired it one last time. At that point, the 5 foot cord was only 6 inches long, so he had to sit with his head right next to the panel where the headset plugged in. He got the message.... And yes, icons instead of words on controls.... Don't get me started on why if they are so great, the ancient Egyptians didn't end up ruling the world instead of the Romans. :D

    Hi Ron, I can tell the difference in the cameras thanks for that. Before you get to far down the line. Double check this with the Hood association web page and your references, but I believe Hood has exposed propeller shafts that would be stainless steel in appearance and matt not glossy as per your propellers, which look great. Despite what others may say it is best to paint the metal shafts as they may tarnish if left. Looking good see you tomorrow

    Hi Ron congratulations on your three year anniversary! Ron I want to share with you something I read from testors before Rust-Oleum put them out of business they suggest not painting directly from a paint bottle (whether it's water-based or enamel/ lacquer based) They claim the solvent evaporates I myself will use a small metal pallet & place a few drops in it They also recommend cleaning the cap and the threads this way air doesn't get into the bottle and it has a longer shelf life I also store my bottles inverted which further helps keeping the air out Man you get a lot of snow in Winnipeg see you tomorrow!

    Hey Ron! I know you’ve been experiencing an issue with your new video not working on your desktop computer and I’m wondering if you’ve checked the graphics requirements for the software you use as well as updating the graphics driver. I only ask because I work a help desk and come across people with software issues and sometimes it turns out to be a simple update of the graphics driver. Just food for thought. By the way, congratulations on 3 years of the model ship. I have to admit admit that I’ve enjoyed watching them all. 😀

    • Ron Calverley
      Ron Calverley 3 days ago

      Мое отношение к подлинности таково. Все зависит от того, насколько разработчик модели хочет, чтобы модель выглядела достоверно правильно. Большинство зрителей не заметят, если какие-то части неправильные, если внешний вид в целом приятный. Спасибо за просмотр и комментарий. 👍
