Doris, the incredible female ship modeler
Posted by crackers on Tuesday, November 06, 2018 10:34 AM

Doris, (I do not know her last name) living in the Czech Republic, is a prolific distaff ship modeler of exceptional talent, creating ship models made of card stock. Her latest model is of the English 17th century warship, ROYAL KATHERINE, named after the wife of King Charles II of England. Here is some of her creations in pictures.

Here is a view of what is inside her model. This talented woman is a sticker for details on all her modeling creations.

As you can see in this last picture, this woman's talent would put any male ship modeler to shame. Her detail, both inside and out side the ship model, is truly that of an exceptional artist. These models are from card model kits that offer a wider variety of ship subjects, unlike wooden and plastic counterparts that have limited subjects.

Doris has a web site that display more of her wonderful works.

These pictures were posted on Facebook.

Whoa, that's gorgeous.  I wish there were more female modelers; most women I know have a better sense of fine detail than I'll ever have.

I'm familiar with her work from several of the 'paper model' websites. Truly (for me) unimaginable skills at work!

And to be blunt, to praise her as a 'female modeler' is fainter praise than she deserves. She's a Modeler, with a capital 'M!'

This is Doris and another one of her many ship models that she has made over the years.

Such incredible talent that is the envy of those engaged in the ship modeler's art.

Card ship modeling seems to be an ignored medium of ship modeling. Wooden and plastic kits are the prefered forms. However, card modeling has more subjects to chose from as seen in Doris' line up of her models. Do some research and find the many subjects which include not only sailing ships, but modern steam and diesel driven vessels.

Compared to wooden and plastic kits, card ship modeling is much cheaper $$$ too ! We all like the extra savings.
