you can contact me via the website (there's a contact form).
I was wondering if I could have permission please to put your model on the website,
with a link back to this build thread, plus any other credit or attribution you'd like.

It deserves to be seen :)

Cheers
Michael.


Sure, feel free to post it.

Thanks, took a look at the website - very nicely done. Would have been very helpful when I was building the model :).

Thread resurrection !

I joined specifically to post in this thread, which I found via google search.
The OP may not see it unfortunately as he hasn't logged on since Sat Aug 13, 2016

In any event I wanted to add my voice to those above regarding just how excellent this little model is.

I have a special interest in this vessel - the wreck is only a few kilometres from my house.

I have built a website with information on this ship, and others of the Queensland Colonial Navy (with more information to be added in the coming weeks)

Thanks.

Kalakala is stalled. I'm starting to think that I'll give up on cars and build it empty, as I'll never finish it otherwise...

Finished painting.

First I've done all of the touchups:

Then did a was and a drybrush:

Take a look at the portholes on the sides of the casemate you will notice that I went through three different attempts. First I've simply drilled them as I usually do, but they were on the edge of the sides and the deck of the casemate, so I couldn't get them straight and the joint kept cracking. The I've tried PE portholes, but in 700 scale they look horrible, so I toke them off and made my own decals, which seem to look good and to scale. I fact I'm so pleased with the results I think I'll try to use them on my other builds as well.

Next step will be detailing the ship.

Is it very hard to do touch ups on a real replacement wooden deck?

Bob Pink. :wave_1:


Not really, it is is real wood, so as long as you don't spill anything on it that will eat into the wood, you can lightly scrape or sand the surface to get rid of the excess paint/overspray.

Excellent work as usual. How does one build 4 barrel Nordenfelts in 1/700?


Thanks :). The Nordenfelds were done the following way - four thin strands of stretched sprue were glued together using thin plastic glue on the metal ruler, then a piece of plastic for the breech block was glued to them and couple of gun sights from PE Oerlicons were used for turning handles. That is about it :). Unfortunately camera won't focus that close...
