Pictures of my ship models build by others!

As there are quite a few ship models I made, distributed round the world now ,I thought it might be nice to show a few pictures of models build by you.

Lets start with a Hunt Typ II class model made by Karl Forder. What I especially like is that he put a barrage balloon up at the back of the ship!

Next up is a S.S. Green Island steamer build as a CAM ship another nice touch I like a lot

MS Louisa as an auxiliary gunboat

Auxiliary gunboats were used by the germans during WWII in a great variety . This is the MS Louisa converted into such a vessel . These vessels were used for security and convoy support.

I haven’t thought about the armament jet, but you could definitely mount a 88 mm gun in the central position and 37mm or double 20mm guns fore and aft and an additional 20mm on top of the wheelhouse . I will put some Warlord weapons on it when i did the mould.

MS Louisa ready for painting

I did the mould and cast the first examples of the MS Louisa coastal freighter / collier.

I did three different ones.

And a version loaded with wood:

Here is a size comparison with an E boat by warlord:

More pictures when I finished painting them up. Next version will be a gun carrier.

 

S.S. König

This is the start of a steam ship liner. It is a generic ship and based on a lot of contemporary pictures.

I wanted to reuse the hull of the S.S. Bellota to safe me from doing a new hull and mould. should be more cost-effective this way. As you can see I work with o core of extruded polystyrene clad with paper for detailing. When you paint that later on with a diluted PVA it gets rock solid.

Here are a few more pictures:
