Wow I feel a little overwhelmed and see it as an honored achievement that the Kiev build as gone to a permanent place amongst the great builds of Bill Waldorf and ARH . Thank you Cadman and Sean and thank all of you for just looking in and supporting me on this long and at times difficult project.

Dave,

Wow! Well done, indeed. I know this wasn't necessarily one of your goals but you've given me many hours of enjoyment as I've followed the progress of the build. Thanks so much for sharing your work. Also, you've created an invaluable reference for any others wishing to build this ship in the future.

Congratulations!
Bob

Dear Moderators,

I for one think that this build ranks alongside ARH and Bill W. Would it b possible for the sake of us mere mortals to have the Kiev build made into a Sticky?

Thanks,

Andrew :thumbs_up_1:




Well done Moderators, thank you from a very grateful novice modeler.

Dave this is an absolutely magnificent build. I'm trying to decide if it's the best ship model I've ever seen in my life. It's probably even more spectacular in person. I wish I could see it. I always thought the Kievs were imposing ships and you have captured their character perfectly, aside from all of the details of course. Wonderful model. Congratulations! :woo_hoo:

Hi Callen Thank you so much for your very generous praise I am just pleased that you like the model. If you live in the UK then as from the 19th of February Kiev will be on permanent display at the Fleet Air Arm Museum at Yeovilton. Thanks again for your interest.

TOP MARKS Dave!!

The model looks magnificent!! You were blessed with a calm day--so the water effect is excellent for the photos.

Indeed the FAA is honoured to be permitted to be the custodians of your work!

Really REALLY a great Model, with truly EXCELLENT methodology in its construction!

Dave,

Congratulations on completing the Kiev, she is looking gorgeous on the water. It is one thing to start a build, but keeping it going until the completion at this level of detail and attention to details no matter how small they are is really commendable. I have watched this build from Page 1 over the last 4 years, and learnt a lot from you. Not only in terms of technical details and construction techniques, but also discipline and perseverance this hobby requires. Congratulation on the completion of the build and thanks for sharing this with us. I am waiting eagerly to hear about your next build :)

Kalkura.

Hi Kalkura Good to hear from you and thank you for your comments. Yes staying power or the will to stay the course can be put down in part to imagination. When I commence on a build I try where possible to visualize in my minds eye the finished model on or off the water , it's that visualization that I hold onto and focus on , add to that the support and encouragement from fellow modellers and there is less of a risk of abandoning or postponing the build. I am sure there are times when most modellers on long term or difficult builds have to endure a situation were the sprit or will begins to flag, I think the effect of this can be attributed to modellers block. For some it is difficult to overcome and the more you push the harder it becomes. But that minds eye picture of the completed model does help to overcome the times when the build process stalls, usually in the middle when there is still a full 50% of the build ahead. I know of modellers that have completely abandoned their projects in mid stream so to speak and are unable to generate that spark of enthusiasm to continue. Although it took almost 4 years to complete Kiev it was in fact part of my long term desire going back over 25 years to build that particular vessel . Soon I’ll post up the beginning of a new thread but for the moment there remains the business of moving the model to gain space to begin all over again , then I will try to visualize the next build as a completed model and focus on that. .
I have no idea where this picture came and I can only commend the artist that produced it whether it was commissioned as box art or for some other purpose but it sums up perfectly the image or visualization that I formed in my minds eye , not sharp or perfectly formed as you would find in a quality photograph but non the less captured the image I most wanted to see .

Hi Jim Thanks for all your support through out the period of the Kiev build it is very much appreciated. Although our chosen scales are very different I have gained so much in my approach to modeling since watching the smaller builds on this site. Up until recently I would not have considered placing figures on a large scale working model and instilling with the figures a sense of activity associated with a ship like the Kiev. Yes we do live and learn :thumbs_up_1: :nod_1:

Superb conclusion to an epic build Dave, another reason I need to get to Yeovilton!
She looks perfect on the water and the deck shows the right level of activity.

Maybe I'm finally inspired to get on with Wolverine now that the snow and sub-zero temperatures have abated :)

Hi doog good to hear from you . If you can make the long trek it will be great to have a chat. Always so much to see at Yeovilton I still haven't seen it all .

As mentioned most of the deck detail has been added , a bit of tweaking here and there to get the detail at least looking as if it could be how it was . Rigging the two cranes will be one of the last jobs but here is one of the tasks that was on the long list of must do's that I set myself 12 months ago , the tie downs for several of the Forger Yak 38s in dispersal .
