Bil

Adrian, the work you are doing on this model is extremely impressive, I love your reference gathering capabilities.  Looking forward to watching this develop.

Did I read you correct that you use an epoxy for all that metal work, or are you soldering the parts and assemblies?

Bil

 

Thanks you Bil!!,  I don't use soldering for the parts assembblies, the only glue I use is 'super bonder' for all my works...thanks for ask me about it

Thank you Bil!!, yes!...I only have the images on internet and is like a challenge because, you need to pick up each part of each imagen to build a new one...would more easier if a have exacly representation of what a need to build and the first thing is to make a desing ...Thank you Bil...we are in touch!!

I thought so, excellent work... 3D modeling, animation, and interactive training is my day job, so my respect for your abilities was just raised a few more percentage points.

Great!!, I always want to learn about software 3D and in this year I want to begin with Sketchup ( I already saw it and I will love it)...I think The most important thing is an imagination...because 'a thought' is a pleasure ( for me) and I can spend hours to imaginate the 'structure that I want'. The 'interactive training' will touching a point of pleasure too and streamlines the mind!!!...Thanks!!

This is such a unique, fascinating build! I'm bowled over by your skills as a craftsman, modeler and your ability to create, from your thoughts, the "look" you want to achieve.

This thread depicts scratch details that certainly should tickle the fancy of most modelers, myself certainly one. I only wish I had half the talent on display here.

*****************

 Hi 1943Mike!!
 
   I bet you have more than "...I had half the talent on display here". Do you know why??...Do you Know my history??...I tell you...First, thank you for your word became of you...I really believe that this modeler skill requery certainly ability and second I belevied that you and most of all have this ability...
 
   I began with this hobby (about 6 years ago) with an airplane AV 8 harrier ( in 1/144), tried to reproduce all the bay ( in scratch) where a motor are...day bye day, practice and practice ... finding and discovery all metals shapes possibles  and how a to work with my hands , and idea and the model… took me one and half year long to create 'nothin'...after that, I quit. Few month later I decide to build in 1/72 a Harrier Gr3, ... to my surprise, was very easier to build a pieces in 1/72...Eureka!!...took me another year to complete a model ( I need to reproduce most  of the pieces more than once…) ( see the photo below)...in a few words…took me around two and half year to make my  model…Great!! (would you spend ( in our quickly times) more than two years just to learn the ability to make something, without  a result??)
 
   I recognize that a have a ability to create a model in my imagination... and a lot of persistence...and more important, give me a pleasure...that’s all, the rest is the ability to every hobby and work needs...patience and time , dedication...and enjoy what you do ...nothing of another world...
 
   Thanks you again and I feel very happy to know you...good!!!...and very happy for all the other person that I know in this forum…thanks!!

Indeed, the life of a modeler is often in peril from even his adoring family. 

Never mind we must go on, the model is all  

Seriously though, very impressive work. Many thanks for sharing your vision and talent with us.

   Yes Bil, My perception to see together is 'the sensation to something heavy", step by step my imagination begin to see some mystery all around this submarine...

 

   Mystery that can explain to me how was his last days in the ocean floor even when was arise and stay for a long time in the dark, solitary and cool nights...

 

   ...of course!!!...I meant not tried to find the true history...just to find some poetry that help me to understand the odyssey of the life on board this submarine...

This is truely an amazing museum quality project that you are creating.  I hope it will eventually find a home in one in the future.

 

Perhaps in the complex where the boat is at.

...I would be the happiest man of earth if have an opportunity to put it in the museum where the sub is at. Thanks you!!

 

   Bassically for now to the end, I only concentrate to keep homogeneo all the individual parts. This is a little hard because you need to concentrate in all the submarine like a one piece… and you need constantly ask you many question about the same things.
 
   For example, Now I'm working in the interior of the third section ( Diesel motor room ) to show all of it ...like a interior of forward torpedo room, and of course I will recreate few ribs but, but...I realize that there are a lot of ribs in my model in the torpedo room!!...and to keep coherent I  remove some of them ...in a few days a I will show us a new one torpedo rooms...with lilltle changes but coherent with the ribs of the third section....
 
   The point is, there are a lot of things depending of the ribs, and practically I need to remove almost all pieces of the interior...
 
   and believe me...most of the pieces that you see in my photographs, doesn't work at first time...
 
 
Thanks you!!!...we are in touch!
