Re: HMS Fencer's rigging complete
« Reply #210 on: 19 July 2020, 02:05:47 »
Hi all the RC ship captains;
The rigging work is now complete provisionally as follows.
After the rigging work,she has become more impressive warship than ever before.
I felt a rigging work was indispensable to get more realism,needless to say,for a model ship.  :grin1:

Nicely done!!

Rigging indeed adds that finishing touch to a model.

Hi Tjorven;
Thank you so much for your kind comment.!
I am wondering what else I can do to this model since I have done almost of all
fittings in the plan of the kit,moreover I am really unable to get more information on
the ship which will be of reference to add more details.
In this sense,I think all that I can do possibly to her further is just sailing.!! ;D :D
Or I have to find such information as to be useful for more detailing or refitting.. :-[ :o

Different plane load-outs? (Swordfish torpedo bombers), planes being re-armed and refueled,  :wink1:
That way you can sail every time with a different loadout

Certainly,it's an interesting idea.!
But,to tell the truth,there is no more space to add other planes on the flight deck
as the vacant space is used just as the hatches often opened and shut for maintenance. :D
Moreover,replacing the planes will cause the damage to the landing gears of delicate
plastics planes that are fixed with double-sided adhesive tape to the deck. :wink1: :-\

By the way,are you enjoying to sail frequently with the destroyer you posted the other day,that looked so powerful even on the rough water.!!

Hi hother;
Thanks a lot for your cordial comment on my work. :grin1:
It is now in a rainy season here in Japan and nearly everyday raining
all day long depending on the day.
That is because I am unable to go sailing ,instead I could have such time as to
add detailing work in these days,fortunately or unfortunately,, :-X :-\

Re: HMS Fencer at sea ?!

Hi all the RC ship captains;
Here you see today are the pics taken on my local lake in the past.
I put them here as they look a little bit impressive for me.
The rainy season here will be over by the end of the month and a long-waited
sailing season may come soon together with the high temperature of air around
or over 35°C. :wink1: :( ;D
1/3;sailing at sea??!! ;D  The waves were also scaled down at 1/96?
4;sailing on the lake actually :grin1:
5;hard to port at full speed?? :-[

Re: HMS Fencer's lattice mast
« Reply #219 on: 24 July 2020, 01:53:56 »
I built the lattice mast of HMS Fencer as seen below,but I used CA
instead of soldering as my poor skill of doing so. Some parts of the mast were reinforced slightly with two-part epoxy.

Re: HMS Fencer's sailor got his place here
« Reply #220 on: 26 July 2020, 07:06:30 »
Hi all the RC ship captains;
I was looking for the best place aboard for a sailor with a strange pose,
in a series of sailor rearrangements.
And I could successfully find the best place for him. :D
He could have the best place to work among other 43 sailors.!! :D ::DD 
He is just about to clime up a ladder of the island structure.

Re: HMS Fencer became a stage for dioramas

Hi all the RC ship captains;
She became a wide stage for many little actors of sailor figures with different poses. ;D
They are 44 sailors in all currently working hard aboard the ship everyday to add
more realism.Thanks to their existence,this model ship has been surrounded by
something organic,heartwarming and vivid. :grin1:
It was also interesting to contrive where to place the best for the 44 sailors with
various poses. ::DD
The followings are the best actors of sailor playing aboard HMS Fencer. ;D ::)

Hi all;
This kind of enjoyment I think will be an additional one in the Rc model ship world.
Really looked model ship and also really looked figures will generate many and fantastic images in mind,by which the RC  model ship hobby will be more attractive and enjoyable especially when watching in the hobby room at spare time. ::DD

Hi all the RC ship captains;
Our rainy season  was announced  yesterday to have been  over the day before at last and at the same time really hot summer is here as if it tempted me out for the sailing. :D  The remaining subjects for sailing are the weather and my convenience,both of which have to match at the same time.And this is also comparatively hard to meet. :( :wink1:
The followings were taken last October,ever since then I have been unable to go sailing due to serious damages to the lake by some big typhoons and corona virus... >:D >:
She is sailing comparatively at high speed. :grin1:
