Post by: Camkierhi


Thank you all. You are wonderful and amazing and I don't deserve you.

Spoiler:

Lets start by saying I know how pathetic this is going to sound, there are so many people in a far worse place than me.
So, started a phased return to work. Now remember I actually love my current job. Yes I could do with more cash, but that is always the case. So I am trying to get back at it. And I am really struggling, really not good. Can't get around, keep twisting funny, can't use stairs. After a few hours, I am in agony, cold sweats the lot.i am doing my physio, and trying to build myself up, but I keep stumbling.went for a walk on the beach with the family. Seriously thought about just taking a walk out to sea. Can't run with my kids, can't climb on the rocks, can't even throw stones, what the bloody hell is the point. And I am really not getting past this. To help things along, doc recons I need to change my depression meds, but I have to come down off my current max dose.
So anyway, I tried to get myself going by doing a few little jobs about the house, with help from my kids. Went looking in the ads for some slabs on the cheap for a small patio. Cool got some. Felt tired but much better doing something simple. While I was asking around for the slabs, a friend said that they were also after some. I got mine and then found an ad with some free slabs, so made arrangements and collected them for my friend. Her slabs where the standard council slabs. 3x2, weigh about 100lbs (50kg). Got lucky my boy is strong and the guy helped so I did not have to do too much lifting. I did however manage to get my fingers caught between two slabs. So now have 2 broken fingers on my right hand. Just strapped them up and got on with it.

Now like I said, I know that there are folk way worse off than me, my brother just lost his leg to diabetes. A good friend just lost their 19 year old in a car crash, a very close friend is in true hell with a pregnancy and has lost the baby. And I feel like a piece of gak, because I am whinging about being sore, and can't help them and be there for them as I should be. What kind of gakky person am I? And that makes it worse.

Thus I have not sat at my desk in 3 weeks. And that is crazy for me. I am losing it. The one small pleasure I have.

Now I need to get back on the horse. You guys help me so much, and I need you. Please bear with me.

If it helps, you can't judge the severity of someone else's problems with out being them and knowing how they tick.

I have a friend who had a miscarriage and we expected her to be a wreck, she surprised all of us by being so strong and pragmatic about the ordeal, went to therapy and came out the other side so much stronger.

Yet on the flip side a child hood mate lost a job after 2 weeks of working (redundancies) who spiralled into depression and was there for about a year. It was surprising as he came across as some one who had his life together and could always get a job where ever he wanted.

What is painful and difficult to you may be something small for someone else, and vice versa, a problem they struggle to deal with you could beat the snot out of.

Also bad luck on the fingers, that would have just added fire to the flame eh?

Spoiler:
Dude, I’m sorry to hear of all the problems, and not feel like a wuss for venting . It’s a mental version of death by a thousand paper cuts, so many little things that each of us wouldn’t be bothered by if it was only one of those happening, but when two or three happen it’s a whole other story. I can’t tell you how to come out of it because I haven’t found one, but venting when it does feel like it’s being unfair at least takes the edge off. We are here rooting for you, I remember how bad it was when I had my work accident and could barely take the stairs to our bedroom and definitely not down to my gaming space. Grab a notebook and write down or sketch out your brilliant schemes. It’ll help be a outlet for your creativity that is being bottled up in all of this. Lastly, big manly tears are always allowed luckily it’s spring here so I blame allergies .

Don't let other people's issues make you feel like your's aren't valid as well. The best, and only, thing you should concern yourself with is your own recovery. I know that you have a big heart and it may be hard for you to sideline yourself from helping these other people you mentioned, but you are no good to them if you are hurting yourself to do so.

Cam, I'm STILL recovering from 5+ years of untreated depression.

Remember: Your brain is lying to you. And it's a jerk, 'cause it knows how to push ALL of your buttons.

You are respected, you are loved, you are skilled, you are a good father, a good husband, and a skilled worker.

It gets better. Honest.

Don't MAKE me come over there.

As others have rightly said Cam, it's about YOU, not anyone else. Judging your state against someone else's is a game depression plays with you, and you will come out the other side. Switching meds is never fun, but again, you will come through it. Take your time, find your path out, try not to worry about anything else. Words themselves can't always help but they do signify our support for you mate. Take care.

It's very hard to get out of the cycle, and tbh it never really goes away. Folk can find it hard to understand: my life's pretty good just now but I still have black moments, inexplicably. And my wife, despite having her own experiences of it, can't understand that :/ it sucks, but we're here for you. Tis the curse of the highly intelligent, alas.

Good to hear from you, Cam! Always face the sun!

Spoiler:
Hard to hear what you're going through and not be able to help directly from this side of the pond- I can only wish you well and pray that you are given the strength to handle it and grow. It's hard to have been physically active and highly reliable to the important people around you as well as friends and acquaintances and then suffer a set-back that doesn't allow you to continue on in the same manner. I experienced a very small portion of this when I had to retire from the Army (hit mandatory age) and had to admit to myself that I really, honestly couldn't keep up with the big dogs anymore. In your case, there is the very realistic expectation that you will regain some or all of your capability and came resume much of your former activity. But even now, in your list of happenings I hear as many strengths as I do setbacks- spending time with family, starting back to work- even in a small way- helping a friend. I'm surrounded by pukes that are half my age, in perfect health, who do none of those things. And I can't tell you how much it meant hen I made my first post, and the first feedback I got was friendly, encouraging and wise (yep, that was _you_). Sometimes all we can do is tighten our chinstraps, fix bayonets and - as Kipling says- 'face to your front like a soldier'. I hope the very best for you, look forward to your omniscient and pervasive presence on DakkaDakka and if there is anything I can do to help- just holler!


Yay! I figured out how to use the spoiler thing correctly! 'Old dog' my a**!

Spoiler the RL stuff? Okay.
Spoiler:
So I knew a girl in high school who fractured her femur-- a skiing accident. It took forever to heal. She spent months in various sorts of casts, and then many more months in rehab. All told, nearly a full year to recover. These sorts of injuries take forever to heal. Don't fret that you are still recovering. You will recover. It's a marathon, not a sprint.


it's going to drive the Mods nuts, y'all know, a page or so of spoilered content. I say we go for it.

Hopefully that worked, haven’t tried linking from that site before.

But what Red Says is true. I had an operation when I was in second grade (7years old) and due to the doctor being drunk I almost died on the table. I still have side effects from it every spring and fall 36years later. it’s why I hate doctors....I probably shouldn’t work at a hospital . Take your time getting better the right way, if you try and force it you might reimburse yourself and it take longer. We are here waiting for your return, even if it’s with just a written concept of what you want to do.

Spoiler:

I felt pretty similar to how you're feeling about 3 years ago after I broke my right hand. Granted it didn't effect my mobility as your accident did but my entire right hand was in a cast for nigh on 6 weeks which for a man who's hobbies include PC games, assembling and painting little men, and guitar that was life changing for me. I was at home bored out of my mind for ages. Wasn't able to sleep because I couldn't stimulate myself during the day and was just lazing around the house by myself with nothing to do. Because of my accident my band missed a big BOTB competition that year which made me feel even worse, and even when I was out of the cast I barely had enough strength to use my hand for another month. All in all a terrible time. A friend of mine recently broke his shoulder and was in a similar situation so was only recently talking to him about this very topic. We both agreed that there's really nothing other people can do because you just feel and and !!! It's hard to get out of those moods but the only thing that we both agreed kept us going was that; this is only temporary, this is just a phase, just take it one day at a time.

And never worry about ranting over your own lot in life just because other people may have it worse. Each person has their own mind which is effected in different ways by the things they experience. Everyone needs their own grief so to speak

In reply to Syro's beautiful PM....
Spoiler:

Thank you so much for the words, honestly you have no idea how much they mean to me.

I love Dakka and it is a real place of happiness for me in a world of pain. People like you make it special. People like you keep me going. Not just with silly toy soldiers, I mean with life. I cannot express what it means to me, when someone wonderful like you says something as simple as I can make you happy or inspired. I suffer pretty badly with depression. I honestly do not see myself as worth anything, and not much good to anyone. Reality is I am doing ok ish, I have a wonderful marriage 3 wonderful kids. I love my job. My problem is I don't necessarily see it, and life keeps hammering blows into me. To quote the eternal Rocky " It ain't how hard you can hit, it's how hard you can be hit and keep going!" This is a mantra I use. But there are times I really struggle with it. I can never get a break, I can never get out the bit. Life will not let me have a good roll.

But I try my best to make everyone else happy, to inspire people, to help everyone I can. Not for any selfish silly reason, but because I honestly believe it is what we should do. There is enough bad in the world without us creating any more. If we could all just try a little good, what could we not achieve.

And so, people like you keep me going, give me a genuine reason to live and move forward and try and get on with it. If you take away the opportunity for me to help others, I would truly end it.

I know it is only toy soldiers here, but it is so much more. It is creativity, an outlet of our feelings and thoughts, a display of art, in a pretty dull world. And also a joining of kindred spirits.


Thank you Dakka Dakka. Trying honest.

Sorry folks, but I just can't do the spoiler thing. I have always been encouraged by my parents (rest my dads soul) to not keep things bottled up or be concerned with sharing, in that I am completely opposed by my wife who was raised to be very reserved and private.

So I say shout it from the rooftops if it helps, share it with the creepy guy at the back of the bus, the nun walking the poodle, whoever will and can listen if that is your road to recovery.

Red said it well (as others have too) that this is your life, it is the most important thing to you, so do not be concerned with the goings on of others as the only gauge you have is how you yourself are going and that is perfectly ok.

The community here is strong and supportive and happy to listen to hobby or real life drama (mods willing), you are a valued and celebrated part of the community so we are all ears, all hours of the day.

My theory is that you should never feel bad about how you feel, either. Sure, most people today live like kings compared to most of humanity through most of history. So what? Are we supposed to walk around delirious with joy all the time? Human nature isn't that way. I think all you can control is your actions not your feelings. If you're doing the PT, then you're doing what can be done, end of story. My family has people of all sorts of views from all walks of life, and we all consider art or creativity of some kind a basic human need. You're an artist - it is something you need to do and you'll be the better for it the sooner you can make the time.

That is a great building. Simple enough on the outside, and fully loaded on the inside.

Grimdark train is one of my favorite things when people do them up. Looking forward to seeing your version.

First up Pics for LoER entry, TBH this is not finished, but I am out of time on the comp, so this will have to do...


(Sorry, big pic dump so spoilered)
Spoiler:













Can be made up in different configurations..



Couple scale shots....yes there is a guardsman there somewhere....



And a few silly...







Here is some terrain that will go with it to Twinner.
Still WIP


And lastly, a little something I picked up at the car boot sale...



Making me rethink the big guy....


Thank you all so much for being here, and thank you for looking in, as always critique is welcome.



QFTPR. (Quoted for the page roll.)

It's big and it's not ruined. Pure win. It is an excellent centerpiece for any table.

Cam, I do hope you enjoyed working on such a large piece, and one that is intact. I find such project far more enjoyable to undertake than small and/or ruined. If I may, I'd like to cast my vote for more such projects. When you have the time and energy for one. Summer is coming. Maybe some time outdoors first?

Hmm, you know; maybe you should do an image search for "Frank Lloyd Wright unity temple".

N.B. If you make them just right, you can nest them togethr for storage, or use them to store smaller stuff.

Sooo much to catch up on- great update all around:

1) I love the work zone- stuff is clearly ergonomically organized to b maximally available when the Spirit moves; shelves are for finished projects, leftover bits (until maybe needed again and returned to slowly surging work zone) and/or cats.

2) The factory is terrific. I'm slowly starting to think before cutting styrene (makes me 'ead 'urt- I shudda bin a Ork player) but you combine aesthetic appeal, realism, playability and whimsy allin one go. And apparently don't think about it whilst doing it. And throwing in the odd revolutionary innovation as occasion demands (don't think I've forgotten about adding iron powder to your resin castings so the whole thing is flipping magnetized- I still want to try that!).

3) The train is a good find at the boot sale. That crane car is crying out to be made into a railstock Manticore or Deathstrike. The caboose roof might want to come off, so it could be a troop carrier or comms car. Or remove the whole housing and it becomes a flat car for missile reloads for the Deathstrike, et al. The comparison to your axles up build is interesting, but not necessarily in the re-think (me-thinks) realm: The new one is clearly Imperial- all smooth and modern materials and gluten-free. The other is just as clearly Ork or Chaos, and built by the users with a whole different set of criteria in mind. Both are good, and of course open the possibility of creating a diorama based on the Great Train Raid (US Civil War). A Union (US, Northern States) group of raiders slipped behind Confederate (Southern States, Rebels) and raised heck for several days and then fled back towrds Northern lines in a stolen train, hotly pursued by Rebs in another train. For you, the question would be who is chasing who? And you get to kit out both trains with all kind sof ordnance.

Great to have you back- I got more learnin' to do!

Just caught up. I'm really sorry to hear you're going through that. I'm not a "share IRL on Dakka" guy anymore, but I'll make an exception- I was diagnosed w/ BPD in 2001 and it took me until 2004 to believe them. Started treatment, had a lot of challenges regarding meds etc. It sucked the and I was sick and miserable all the time. Finally in mid-2007 they got the mix right, early 2008 I started seeing an improvement, and today I'm the super-awesome awesome guy you've all come to know and love. Or know at least.

On to more awesome stuff- love this:

Blimey Cam, just been catching up with you postings and had not realised you were going through so much. Depression through injury sucks, been there myself and it just takes time and perseverance. Don’t push your body too hard I had to learn to walk again, and when your in that moment you push too hard, to soon and end up setting yourself back. For me as a physical worker and keen Rugby player and cyclist it was a nightmare. My wife, kids and modelling got me through but it takes time.
Others have said it here, your work inspires almost every reader to try and emulate similar works they see on your thread, I for one am astounded at the speed and quality of detail you put into every project, you certainly give rise to the green eyed monster on more than one occasion!!!
If your ever down the midlands way get in touch, would certainly love to meet the legend that inspires me to give something new a go,,

Love the Necromunda-type terrain pieces. I've had a stab at ferrous rust, and gotten some good feedback from all y'all on how to do it more betterer. Now, I'm wondering how you get that bluey-greeney oxidized bronze look? And are the smears on the more aluminum looking pieces dilute black ink, or thinned out shoe polish, or what?

Great stuff- and thanks for the lessons!

Twinners terrain is looking great!
Different designs of train for different reasons man - the large driven wheel thing is a product of early steam engines that had vast amounts of torque - you could have a dual gauge goods yard or it could possibly represent a peice of left over tech from an imperial colony before making contact woth the imperium again, or worse - a colony which succumbed to one of the myriad of perils the galaxy can conjure..

So still struggling, but saw something that really got me going, off to the bench, need to work on this.....
Question is where do I get feet with Thongs on. (flipflops)



Camkierhi's other stuff blog.....Currently, a fire engine finished!. @ 2018/06/03 11:08:00


Post by: Syro_


That is hilarious. I just went poking through some pictures of zombicide miniatures. I saw some with sandals and open toed shoes, but no true thong flip-flops. I figured that miniature line would be a good start being that they have characters on roller skates and other silliness. I wonder how easy it is to find minis of the right scale with bare feet to steal?

The tank factory is pure genius mate, the inside shots are truely awesome, beautifully detailed!

And what a find with the train ! I’ve been looking for years for a descent train to 40 kayify ! Mash it all together with lots of bits and put loads of rivets on it jobs a good’un !

It might prove wasteful, but the figures that AW Miniatures and other producers of Japanese Shogunate warriors and peasants make have sandalled or bare feet. I'll try to check, but I think the old Wargames Factory naginata warriors had sandals, or at least tabi shoes on.


Love the concept of 'The Emperor's Aussies' though- too good to pass up! Fair dinkum and a pukka idea.

Kinda works.

Thanks again you guys and dolls.

That's a clever idea. Seems like there could be potential there.

Any ideas for your next project? If not, there is a new piece of terrain for the Knights, but GW really just phoned it in with some new bits on an existing kit. Would love to see your take on it.

Post by: Viktor von Domm


the tripod idea is neat...but i think it would work better with a screw as intended...for me hot glue is not in the same league as sturdy^^

also...i think your best bet could be with zulu warriors from wargames factory...they have to be bare feeted?
but honestly...you can sculpt them flatfeed yourself with ease...i cant remember how many fists and hands you already did...feets are by comparison probably way easier...

I like the idea of holding 3 models at the same time with the tripod, is it pretty steady? If it does not work out pretty sure you can make it into something interesting.

I have one of those tripod thingies mouldering in a corner- I can use it to hold the verdammten resin parts together whilst I'm GREENSTUFFING them to get them to stick together! Brilliant idea. Although I might screw it to the base as well, like Viktor. I have a tendency to hot glue gun my thumbs together if I'm not careful.....

Rock on!

Thank you all.

Sat down yesterday evening with a blank piece of MDF flooring, and ended up with this, fair bit still to go but chuffed the muse is returning....

Advice please I am trying for an Imperial thingy, that has been influenced by Tzeentch....



Thanks for looking, and C & C encouraged.

Post by: Syro_


You seriously did that whole thing in one sitting? Wow! It looks great so far. Are you planning on putting railings on the raised platform? As for Tzeentch influence, I have trouble with what's good for Tzeentch and what's good to represent Slaanesh. I feel like the over lap a lot, so I could be way off with this suggestion. The color changes are already great, as an addition for Tzeentch influence I'd sculpt in a small area of one of those tanks to have a different texture with an eye looking out, or a small tentacle reaching out. If you want to have a little fun with it, maybe even have both in the same spot, with the tentacle poking at the controls for this machinery.

Keep up the great work! I'm glad the muse is returning

You've certainly got the tzeench colors down pat, and the structure is clearly Imperial in origin... so I think you've nailed your two main themes.

Love the interior work. I got to experience this a little doing the Athena C2V- the insides shape what the outsides look like (even with a square plinth of a building). If the inside doesn't relate to the outside, the observer can't suspend disbelief long enough to enjoy the magic.

These insides relate to those outsides: disbelief suspended.

Work at your pace, bro. We're delighted to see whatever you do. Everything looks very cool.

The thing I've found with interiors is that it is always nice if a human hand can fit far enough in, or down to move miniatures around. That one space looks a wee bit narrow.

Maybe some drops of ooze dripping from the ledge by the ruptured tank?

My sister-in-law took ill and was in hospital for the week. Just home. I had to rush over to babysit my brother. He's the one with kidney failure and a recent amputation of the leg. So not really in a place to do for himself. Been kinda nice catching up. But stress and quite a physical challenge for me. All is ok at mo. Not back home yet but sister-in-law is home.
Bit of a shame it was all blue lights and a drop everything and run for me. Could have been doing some models some of the time!

Bit more on him...
Just wanted to give a shout out on this paint again, I am so impressed. Pebeo Acrylic, just excellent coverage, I have a few different colours now and blown away by the results I am getting, and here it is dirt cheap.

Thats a white undercoat, and then a single coat of the copper.

Made him a plynth.






Next up while waiting on paint drying, made a small piece of scatter....possible 40k transport.







And still plodding away...



Thanks for looking folks.

Wow, what a lot of progress! The statue is still looking great, I can't believe how much it has changed in so short a time. I really like the vehicle, it looks like a heavily armored scouting vehicle to me. Rather than just scatter, I hope you write up some rules for using that in game. Keep up the good work on your Tzeetch terrain, I don't know how you can constantly think of additions and improvements on your pieces, it's looked finished to me for a long time, but you keep improving it

How did you do the green patina on the statue- that came out terrific! The vehicle, as has been suggested, could easily be a flash gitz kind of thing- but I think you could use it as prime mover on a towed configuration Earthshaker Cannon too. Love the building- it would mate up nicely with the factory you recently finished and the Necromunda tower structure (with all our names on).


You'll have a whole under-warren completed, shortly!

Couple things to get sorted in RL but once they are done, I have had it with RL, going to immerse myself in my modelling and will be back to commenting, and catching up on you guys.

Had a long night at it so did a few bits, calling some of these done I think.

SAPT (Small Armoured Personal Transport) Used by officials of the Imperium to move about the surface of the forgeworld giving protection from the enviroment and the various dangerous machinery.










Statue.








Not fully finished but for now done, storage tanks...

Great stuff all round Cam!

Love that SAPT, very cool.


Excellent work on the statue, both in sculpting and on the verdigris final version.


Storage tanks look suitably corrupted now, good job.

And that's a great little scrap hidey-hole.

Always fun to see what you are working on Cam, that statue is so good. Would make for some great terrain in a necromunda game.

It always amazes me how well you channel your inner Ork on pieces like the scrap pile. Then knock out other great pieces like the statue and factory (which are just the Imperial side of Orky ). Well done Sir.

Loving the little personal transport tankette as well. Always the little details that build a theme.

Tile spacers? Well, You win this round for cleverness, Mr. Cam. And I'll just save some time and concede the next round too.

Whatever it is , I like it. Very playable.

Good job on the "tidy-up" terrain piece. That doesn't happen when I tidy...

Good start and ideas on the latest.

Thanks folks.

So the lower pieces, made the block a usable piece of it's own.





Then the top...also made so it can be used seperately.





And together..



Notice the sliding door.

And finally in situ with a scale shot as well.





That's that one done for now, next up soon. Thanks for looking folks, really appreciate the feedback.

WOW HANG ON....Hi Arakasi. how the devil are you?

So today did a center piece for this table, started out with a 12" round of 5mm epvc....sketched out an idea...


Started laying down some base colours...


And added a bit more paint....


Trouble is I think it is a bit gawdy.

"added a bit of paint" he says as he shows us something amazing
It looks awesome Cam, and don't worry about gawdy, this is chaos we're talking about, the faction that needs to decorate everything with colours, symbols, chains, spikes, skulls, etc. I'm curious how that's not considered done yet, what are you planning on doing next?

Thanks folks.

Sorry I am a bit quiet, i.e. not chatting much, just working through stuff, and concentrating on the builds.

To give Twinner a few options, I am making a raised "dias" for the center. It will have a more imperial feel. He has shown me a battle mat he wants all this for so hope this lot will key in ok.

Anyways here are some pics of the build today.



These are four quadrants not going to be this tall.




Find this useful for quick mass production.





Do not think I am going to secure the "lids"


More soon.

For the detail oddments, I vote color, albeit faded- to contrast with the metal and marble.

The marble finish is glorious. I’m not sure about finishing the sides with color. Maybe verdigris to show age, but since it looks like a piece of art, I almost think keeping it all metal would be fine.

Had missed it was a multi-top piece. Bit of verdigris and maybe a couple of tiny touches of colour on some of the details is probably the best course to fit with both

Good work on the corrupted tank wreck and on the plinth/box. both looking good.

Only thing I may have done different with the chaos top of your box, would be to have the individual sections orientated outwards, rather than from one angle as you have it, then there's no right way up for it. Doesn't mean your way is wrong though, just different.

Beautiful work as always. You continue to amaze me (probably all of us) with your ability to see the possibilities in everything you find.

Thank you all so much, really appreciate your feedback.

Finally got to sit down and do a little, started a few days ago, but had to take a break for RL, back at it today and think this one is done....

Started out like this from twinner...


Decided I wanted that interior visible so cracked her open...

You will notice the doors replaced on the top.

And after a few details and a little paint slapped on...




Oh and that interior...






And that's the tanks I think done, unless twinner has any request to add to this...


Thank you so much for looking, all C&C welcome, feeling an orky urge to clear the mind coming on. Nerdy has a comp uup so might be daft and have a silly..

Thanks folks

OK Nerdy comp....'More than meets the eye'...so something that looks like something else....well the obvious one for me is a silly ork or grot pretending to be a marine, been done a thousand times.......MMMmmmm. Bit of role reversal maybe, so maybe an commando/ assassin type Guardsman sneaking about dressed as an ork????????

Started with this poor sod..


Added some bits.....





So that's it, off to paint now.....

Thanks all.

And now for something completely different......

Got some bits of woody stuff....


And stuck them together...








Still very WIP lots to do yet, there will be a removable deck, a poop deck and mast and sail, which I hope to have working. The idea is a Japanese Junk but I am not sure how true to form I am and also if it actually would fit into a playable game of Bushido. He doesn't know it yet but I will send it to Git's once done.

The only real question is .....Git's do you want me to paint it or do you want that job?

Thanks for looking. C&C welcome as always.

I was going to write, "Yar, thar be a pirate ship!" But then I read Japanese Junk, and got a completely different mental image. Not a nice one either. ( Given that junk is slang for something...) Pass the mind bleach please

I've always though junks were Chinese.

I like it. I'm glad to see you make something that is not from the 40K or GW settings. You should not confine your talents to just that sort of thing. Okay, I'll step down.

I'd say you are spot on!

He's done it before y'know.

Post by: Camkierhi


Thank you guys and dolls, much appreciated, really gives me a buzz reading the feedback.

Started today...


Got to make a mast...

Brown tape is temporary...All being superglued together at ends of each piece.

Then some binding, strong thread, wound around and then superglue applied sets it very strong, same technique used to put the eyes on a fishing rod.



In place temporary...


Next bit start on the rigging..laminating tongue depressers...

To make bulkier parts..




And after a bit of fiddling...



End of a skewer for a belay pin..


And the rigging is up..


So this is where we are..




Thank you all again for looking and your comments are amazing....

Cam, I'm so sorry I haven't commented before, been a bit behind on my dakka reading over the past few days. That is unbelievable. My wife is looking over my shoulder and just keeps repeating "Oh my God!".

You are... a master. The entire sail apparatus is a wonder and the ship in total could be sitting on display in a museum. Beautiful work.

I now know for a fact that Cam is a time pirate . He jumps around and kidnaps the worlds greatest designers and keeps them locked in his basement until they fashion great crafts for him. When/if they do a good job he posts their work here and returns them to their time. That is why so many of the great thinkers of the past have been crazy/disappeared. They cannot fathom all the wonders of our time or cam dumps them off in the distant past if they do not appease him.

Awesome work Cam. I know it’s really all you. Your insight and follow through are just amazing.

Thank you very much all. you are far to kind.

I am afraid I will be on a small break, family issues mean I am away. Sorry.

I would ask the collective, interior design for feudal Japan? As you have seen I made a desk, captains bed etc. But would it have a chair, and half fancied a globe spinning of course, not sure I would go as drinks cabinet in side.

Wow, that boat is amazing! I would like to try something similar and build two triremes or two biremes.

Are you going to stain it or paint it? Any plans for how you will get up under the overhang?

That last one is part of what's kept me from giving it a go. I can work out how to build it, but not how to build it in such a way that I can easy get in and at everything to paint/stain.

My penny's worth is probably give chairs a miss, unless it's a very low stool, barely off the ground, maybe a similar sized bench. Low table, possibly a cabinet or two - maybe scroll cabinets? Globe makes sense to me.

Post by: Meer_Cat


Gret work here Cam- simply amazing!

I agree in all particulars with monkeytroll and especially for the scroll cabinets. For all that this is a Japanese vessel, I would think the look of the scrolls and their storage that you see in the Jet Li movie Hero would be a great look- for all that the film is about China. The wooden folding/rolling up scrolls and the slots that they fit into in the library would work well with your highly detailed and well-scaled interior, sez I!
