Got to admit I'm glad there's a fair way to go before  the one I'm doing will be finished, as for the casual staff not turning up, well you just get decent workers anymore can you  :( better luck next time we hope, look forward to more & more piccys, one thing Lachlan can you put something along side her ( maybe yourself) for an idea of scale on this beauty??

Just a little update, I have dusted down the model & started work again, it is supposedto be a winters project, but am using it as a convalescence tool to help get my left hand working.Am painting the deck working areas around where the davits will sit, this needs to be done before I attempt the photo etch railings.

Just thought I'd post this  view of model on the stocks (toilet rolls) with a nice backdrop

Only just saw this, absolutely brilliant effect, very clever indeed.

Once again, latching onto the coat tails of Alistair, with thanks, a little update on my efforts, it has taken me ages to do the handrails around the davit areas, still needs work to make it right, am fitting boats this week before resting this model till later on in the winter, all to do on the Port side using techniques learned on this side.

Yes, nice work indeed Pete.
The paint lines are beautifully crisp and even which makes it look great. You have confirmed what I thought - the railings around the boats on the boat deck must be very fiddly and I can see how they would have taken ages. I'm not looking forward to doing them on my model. I like your comment on getting the technique right on one side then do the other side. Looks like you got the technique right right from the outset.
Looks terrific. Congratulations,
Lachlan

Pete, that is looking great.
As a model builder myself (not QE2 related at all) I know how much work, dedication and patience goes into producing these projects.
It really does make a big difference when you get to the stage when it takes on a finished appearance with the "worst" of it over and you can see final completion approaching.

Keep up the good work Sir!

Been busying myself with the model, whilst watching positive posts on QE2 hotel, again thanks for Alastair for the original topic.

Beautiful work Pete. I like your nice crisp paint lines and the consistency of the railings. I know how much patience this takes and your making a great job of the Boat Deck. Just bending the P/E brass railings squarely is a challenge isn't it. The detailing you've done will show up really well. I wish my model looked as tidy as yours!

Forming bends in metal components that small isn't easy, Those railings are indeed looking good.
When do the teak handrails go on?  :P

Great work Sir.

This is looking Very Good indeed!

Model making with 2 working hands is tricky enough -
with just one, it could be impossible...
Well done to You, Pete :)
Best to you Both

Just a few shots of oh so slow progress on QE2, Foremast just plonked on that's why it's tilted, nearly there, still railings to sort out, & details as much as I want to do.   Just re arranged the deck chairs for a change.
   Happy Christmas everybody , & as ever thanks to Alistair who started this topic such a long time ago...
