Great looking rendition of a great subject. Question: why is it riding so high out of the water and why does it seem to be listing (or is that just wallowing from being nearly empty of coal and ammunition?).

Best,

Jack

Probably operating in Moonsund / Riga Gulf. Being very shallow, Moonsund straights had to be passed by battleships only if nearly unloaded. That fact became deathtrap to her half-sister Slava - after battle damage with severe flooding she was not able to pass it to escape the german advance, and had to be blown up after grounding.

Nice looking model and well done presentation.

Makes sense. Didn't realize that Slava was trapped because of that. Always felt Slava gave a very good account of itself against the Germans.

Best,

Hi Jack. :wave_1:

That is entirely my fault. I put it in epoxy resin without any thought. But the buoyancy of this ship was so strong that it lifted high.
If I fixed this ship with a plastic rod, such things would not have happened. :smallsmile:
This is a disaster of my folly.
I built this ship in March. I vowed not to make such a mistake again. But I repeated this mistake again recently.

File comment: Again, this is high.
This is due to my miscalculation.

Won-Hui Lee: Look at PeTROS' answer above. It can be your excuse!

One question, which resin did you use? I was asked by a colleague to make a resin water block with his grandpa's submarine inside for his father

I thought at first it was when she was starting to be scrapped and was unloaded. That could be your reasoning.

Intentional or not, the riding high effect looks great! It looks as though the ship where lightened for a long yard period.

But I did one more fault. When a ship stays in the harbor, it does not drop anchor.
But I didn't know that when I built it.
There are many errors in this work. T_T

Any chance you could tell me the exact brand? I have several resins here, but with some, I had issues ...

Not always, there are exceptions though. I recall dropping anchor to assist in getting our ship into a tight berth on more than one occasion. Basically using the anchor as a pivot point. Low speed maneuvering in confined waterways this works surprisingly well.

The brand name is Kein Teck. Unfortunately, the company's products only sold in South Korea.
If you fear that the kit is melting because of heat, you can change the ratio of mixture epoxy and hardner.
2:1-> 2:2.1 ~ 2.7:1

The time to harden will increase. However, less intense heat may cause fewer worries about melting.

Okay.... The main problem is of course bubbles, not only melting. melting can be avoided by using thin layers.... Learned that from some build report on britmodeler forum a few years ago, when a beautifully executed seaplane swordfish in 1/48 was molten down ...

Nice looking diorama.

Since you've already discovered about not using anchors when moored to a dock, you may want to do a bit of research on the use of fenders, camels and spring lines to keep the side of a ship away from a dock. Mooring lines should also a bit thicker than what you used.

Other than that, good job.

In my experience, the higher the humidity, the higher the heat, the more the bubbles.
Not sure, but if you reduce the humidity and decrease the heat, bubbles will decrease.
