As I said in the last post I wanted to make moulds of the steamer Bellota. Here they are:
Here are the first casts of the parts:
And the build steamer. The life boats and davids are still missing as are the air vents. I have to do two part molds for these. Will be done next week. Furthermore the masts are missing these will be done with brass rod.
Here is a picture of the cast steamer:
Some more pictures from different angles:
And pictures with the Warlord tanker alongside for size comparison:
The model as shown above is supposed to show the ship in ballast so riding very high in the water. I have done a loaded version ,too, have still to put it together, will show later.
Now I will do the tanker and liner version next!

That is great- must be really rewarding to see your own model come out of the mold like that.
Indeed it is ! Hope that there are a lot of other models following as the feeling gets addictive 😄
