Recommended Posts

good evening everyone

what the hell are you doing here i ask you say

well i fancied a break from ship building, and wanted to try something different, i not expecting it to take years to do either, so i could be back to the sawdust within weeks

well this is a kit by Aedes ars and they have a range of historical buildings in their catalogue, i picked this one, as the castle i fancy are now wrapped up for Christmas to me

this is the link to the subject

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stari_Most
i ordered it last night and it arrived 18 hours later

apart from tools everything is in the box

day 2

well i made a start yesterday, 

the card templates are of good quality, instructions are a bit like the CAF, just illustrations of the basics, i will learn more from watching the build logs on here and of course there is you tube

the tiles are set diameter, but the lengths vary, like the 5mmx5mm of which there are 000's vary from 2mm to about 15mm you you have plenty of choice to pick the size required

lots of sanding, some decent file sticks and sandpaper are the main things used so far,

the supplied glue, is very much like a decent paper/wood glue,

the 1/2 round building was hard to get the shape right so i made up a couple of 1mm bulkheads, which worked very well

i am learning as i go along, like all of my builds you can tell where i started, i am sure there will be help and advice as i plod along, im happy to listen

I like the look of that!

perhaps not the perfect starter kit, as skills get better the more you do it, and not my fav scale, (to small) at 1/350 but no regrets for giving it a go
i also purchased two castles as santa arrives next month
 
i saw something like this  in another forum (NRG Model Ship World) they have a non ship section to keep boat builders happy when not making boats 
the photos therefore  ARE NOT MINE they came as a part works set from 20 years  ago and the builder started them about 24 months ago and show what can be done, by improving skills and some imagination

good evening eveyone

Day 4 and 5 Bridge

 

the reason starting this, was so that the admiral could have something on the shelf, started and completed, by me, very quickly we both realised this was not going to be a weekend job, so i put it to one side and built up a cheap lego kit, and thoroughly enjoyed it,  with a couple 1000 pieces, took sat evening and Sunday to build up (about 8 hours), yep looks like a toy

IMG_8324.thumb.JPG.64321f0035667271cf49ad88eff88d9f.JPG

anyway having gained a bit of confidence over the last couple days, i started the bridge, and tonight have most of it done, i might be cleaning the pieces up to much, as they are quite smooth

You know this looks strangely tempting and therapeutic 

just look, select,, file, glue, apply, sand and repeat 7360 times

The Bridge has turned out really well. You need to be careful, your wife will have you building an extension soon with your newly found brick laying skills.

good evening everyone

well it had to happen, not happy with just the kit, i had to expand my project a little

 i have been following a few logs on Model Ship World and they have inspired me to do something different for a change,  i have always been happy with building ships and thoroughly enjoy it, but in the last few months i have realised that there are other things i would love to try,

this was brought to a head a few weeks ago when the wife suggested trying something different and the Stari Most Bridge was started

 so here i am with a 48x 30 inch base board and a town to build, i have no time frame to work to, but would like to get the Dorade build completed within the next six months, 

 inspire by Game of Thrones i did try basing the idea on the city Of Dubronik, but the harbour was taking to much room, so i have scaled it at present to the fortification of a river valley with high walls on two sides 

 still very much in the planning stage, and would love any ideas and take any criticism

good evening everyone

thank you for comments and likes

day 2 after reset

well i made a start , i wanted to incorporate the bridge, as it was 99% complete, the base from the kit was stored away for another day, and another one built in its place

i am working in scale 1/160 to 1/180 

1/160= N scale and 1 foot=1.9mm if im correct the new wall is 41 feet high

once this corner is sorted (not necessary complete) i will have a good idea on a how things are going to work

3000 bricks from Spain costs £38 plus £17 postage, a kit here in the uk with 8000 bricks is £64 and free delivery, so the bricks are from kits
