Casting the steamer

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!
