Regrettably, I have to withdraw from the GB...I tried to get the ship done, even to close being done, but to do a proper job I need more time...

Happy New Year, see you in 2019.



Well Richard, there's always "Dry Docked 2019"!

Regrettably, I have to withdraw from the GB.

I tried to get the ship done, even to close being done, but to do a proper job I need more time.

This, the side wheel steamer is my first such model and I've been learning about rigging and more - each thing I need to do requires me to do research, first on what then on how, so everything takes 5X longer.

I have profound respect for sailing ship modellers, in plastic and in wood. This model has been a real eye-opening experience.

Happy New Year, see you in 2019.

My Dry-Docked build (and many others)has stalled as well.

If there are enough people who want another "Dry-Docked" campaign, there will be one.

I don't think I'm going to finish. Heck, I didn't even post a start photo yet. Hope there's another Dry Docked campaign in 2019.
Take care,
Don "Lakota"

Good progress being made.

I have been lax in my modeling. The urge seems to come and go, which I am a perennially in such campaigns.

Well, here we are Nov. 21st and not long to go before this campaign ends. Time to get busy. I've been occcupied with all kinds of other 'stuff' and so had no time for modelling. I also had to order rigging blocks because I intend to add a couple of extra sails and rig as best I can.

Anyway, here's a photo with the paddle wheels positioned, but not glued on.

Don't forget to upload a picture of your build into the campaign gallery.



Not gonna lie, I looked and I have no idea how to do that.

Just a little less than 2 months to go. Of course, I haven't touched the Trafalgar since I stripped the paint off it.

Hey Goof, no worries - we're pretty casual around here! I know what you mean about deadlines; I'm not fond of them either. Just drop in when you feel like it, and have fun!

I really enjoyed the Do-24 you did for the Flying Boats Campaign over at Aeroscale, by the way!

Deadlines are fine. At work. But i've come to the realization that deadlines and hobbies don't work for me. It ends up looking to much like work and that's not what i want. Above all i want hobbies to be fun.

With that realization i've decided to stop all groupbuilds, campaigns etc. that i've started. Of course i'll keep watching the often amazing builds i see coming along in the campaign threads, i'll just not participate anymore.

And since i consider it somewhat rude to just drop out without notice... well, there's this notice

@Gary: it is indeed a nice kit, fiddly PE, but quite doable. It's just the finished that i never get around to

Then I had to make dinner and be a functioning adult for a little. Then I got some paint down real quick before bed time.



That Hull Red sure looks brown in the jar. Would like to add in a little bit more red on my next ship. and Hey!! Did my own boot line and it turned out ok!

Dry fit all together as of this morning



Now I need to seal it up and start the weathering so make it look half way decent.

Thanks for looking!

Keeping this thread alive!

Got some AB done this weekend



Also painted some 53 Corvette pieces since I got the black out. You can see some in the background.

Touched up the deck and TRIED to hand paint some Tamiya. I would say at best, I got mixed results.

Got a little work done this weekend.

Taped off the hull but didn't break out the AB yet.



Hand painted the deck. Let me tell ya, there are two ways I thought of doing this: Painted the whole piece deck color and hand painting the little bits, or the wrong way. Guess which way I chose.



Either way, progress!!!
