It sucks to know that, even if given a million years, I am unlikely to get that good.

Wow - Chuck finally says something based in fact!! :heh: (Just kidding, Chuck).

Man...that is some impressive model. Love the cars and the truck on the deck. What attention to detail!

Hi Chaps

I was called to task today---...""have I finished my Roma model...""

Ha!!!

My 1/350 AXIS Roma model IS making good progress--but not as fast as a 1/700 project--mainly because I keep on trying to improve and refine things--spurred on by the fabulous 1:100 Barbieri model--which is of course 3.5 times larger--and just about perfect--

....I feel I am failing to emulate the sheer QUALITY and sharpness of that model--but 3.5 times smaller is a bit trickier to keep it all looking sharp...

anyhow-- I keep on going--suffice it to say MW will be the first place it will be revealed!

JIM B

below the small AA guns-extensively modified by me-fiddly-and there are lots of them....!!

Hi chaps

A quick update on the Axis Models Roma progress.

...the model is slowly nearing completion --much small scratch-building still to be done--and the painting of all the crew-members, the creation of the seababse and finishing off the masts...-bingo...!! hehehhe

anyhow below some images as of March 10 2008

Cheers

Jim Baumann

It's only just now that I have gotten around to looking at Giancarlo's web site for his magnificent huge Roma. Migod, has there ever been a more perfect model? I hope he did his research because I'd hate to think all that excrutiating effort did not represent correct perfection.

I'd use it for reference when I build my 1/700 version anytime.

The Barbieri model is truly SUPREME ...

I think it really is the best ship model I have ever seen--I have been unable to find a single flaw or misalignment in the entire model--and I have studied in on-screen for Hours!!!

My comments below are intended in no way to detract from that singularly perfect model

BUT... it represents a 'Utopian' fit--ie as designed...

ROMA was never completed exactly as the model depicts-- War conditions dictated that Roma was finished in a somewhat more utilitarian manner--for example no where near as many boats were ever carried!!-- less aircraft- if any....

I am building mt model of the Roma as at trials -- and there are a number of items which had not been fitted--or carried in a different manner--its all fascinating stuff--and I have been kindly and most ably supported by Giampiero Galeotti of Regia Marine models with photos and advice etc etc

enc:
Below a section of a photo that shows a typical example he ship as really was --in deviance from the Barbieri model and the 1;100 plans plans... --always use photos!

if you REALLY want inspiration what to do with your 1/700 Roma model...

check out Patrizio Carlucci's model

http://www.modelshipgallery.com/gallery ... index.html

Patrizio is the originator of the kit I am building--and obviously a VERY competent modelmaker....

Cheers

Jim Baumann

Yes, I have seen Patrizio's stunning model and it is an inspiration ( as are yours, Jim, BTW... )

Interesting that you made that point about the number of boats Roma carried. That was one of the first things I noticed, the abundance of boats. No other BB I can think of is modeled with so many. All I could think of was that in action, that's a lot of kindling to brew up.

As a sheer aesthetic comment, I have always disliked the red/white stripe scheme on the forecastle decks of the Italian BBs and CAs.

Jim
Let me know when you have done all the research.

It would look good in 1:72?

Philip.
