Hello, again. I´ve been very busy this last 2 weeks but i´ve found time for her. Now it´s time for the wooden deck.

Since Dragon has nicely molded all the wooden decks parts, i think that a real wood deck aftermarket is not necesary. With some masks and a close range of colourcoats we can obtain a nicely wooden deck. Here we go:

First, we need to create masks for the deck. I scanned the main decks to obtain a master plan of them. As we can see, the wooden deck only has endless engraved boards, so reproduce the differents cuts in regular sequences was absolutely necesary.
Image

Again, with corel draw and tons of patient, i created a new board in wich those cuts were reproduced. I used a 6 colors matrix, to manage the differents tones of the each individual board.

Image

Once the matrix was created, i divided each different color layer and, again with my laser machine, i cutted each individual mask.

Image

The base color will be Tamiya´s XF-78. Then i´ll use this others colourcoats to give to the deck, the different tones....:

Image

Image

This is the deck with the base color, and ready to recieve the 4 different tones with the help of the masks:

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

After that, it´s time to use my new Copic Multiliner Pens to panel the deck. We can use a wash of oil artist , but i think using this pens are quite clean...

Image

I´ll use the Sepia Pen, of 0,05 mm Width

Image

I panel each board and create the "cuts" between each table...

Image

And the final step... With the base color, heavely thinned, i smooth the diferences of the tones, unifying the tones, and creating a nice real wood appereance.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image


Now, it´s time to improve the detail of the AA that are in the top of 150 mm guns....

Image

Hope you like the progress. And again, sorry for my bad english . Believe me, has been a hard work to try to explain ....:lol_3:

Best


Kuba

Tons of patience - Not wasted! Well done, mate!

:thumbs_up_1:

What did you use for the masks? Looks quite rigid, sheet styrene?
Could you plese explain (again) what you did with those pens? Painting on the butt ends of the planks?

Happy painting ~ Olaf!

Looks pretty good!!
I am glad that the butt ends -while visible--are not overdone as would be the case if they were moulded.

Good call!

Extremely nice work, Kuba.

When we talked about micropens back in Leganés you know I was somewhat skeptic about them.
Now I have to say the effect is way better than I had thougth.

Keep up the good work!

I use self adhesive polyester, of 30 microns of Thickness.

The copic pens help me to stand out each table instead to apply an oil wash. Also i´ve painted the butt ends with them.



Thanks guys for your comments....

(Gracias, colega... :wave_1: )

Hi again, gentlemens. Not many progress since my last post. I´m trying to recovery myself from floods suffered in certain parts on the south of Spain last month. I had all my bussines and hobby staff in my basement and many things have been losted. I found all my modelwarships, my hobby staff, computers, my laser cutting machine, etc literally floating and was a nightmare of vision. Fortunately we didn´t count any personal damage but has been a heavy blow. At least, all my finished models were safety.

So i have no time til last week to spend time some time on Scharnhorst...: Not many progress but very relaxing

Once i ended the wooden decks, i moved to the stern structure and cranes.

That´s all, companions

I really like the absolutely clean work on her.

Upon finishing my HMS Eskimo in a couple of weeks, will start working on this one, so this thread is really interesting and inspirational.

Very impressive :thumbs_up_1:

I am really glad someone is replacing the funnel deck platform with PE, I understand Dragon can't do it to my satisfaction every time, but I thought their platform structure looked clunky. You are doing amazing work, Kuba.

So accurate! What is the "laser machine" for the masks?
Which P.E. is used? :thumbs_up_1:

Looking really god Kuba. You are build ing to a very high standard and making me wish I had gone for an alternative to the Dragon etch set.
Live and learn.

It's looking great. Glad to see it wasn't lost in the flooding.

I hope you don't mind if I mention that I see you left a piece out. K34 at the very back of the deck that's below that rear flag pole.

Dan.

Looking as good as ever Kubaro. In case you didn't know, there is a ladder leading from the front port side of that little white platform you have added up to the first section of yardarms. I assume you already know that but wanted to throw it out in case you didn't.

Should be strong enough to withstand some abuse during the rigging stage Kuba.
