Scratchbuilt 1:144 scale Oceanic model build
« on: November 30, 2020, 03:20:07 AM »
Hey all, I recently completed this scratchbuilt 1:144 scale cruise ship model of the Oceanic (1963). I do***ented the build and have edited it into several videos on the design and construction and figured some here may be interested in seeing how it is done. Hope you like the pictures and videos!

Nope, the deck furniture is photo-etched brass. I haven't uploaded that video yet.

Not quite aaaaallll that! I did all of the artwork in a CAD program, but sent the files away to have the brass etched. It is worthwhile because you can get LOTS of detail parts on a sheet of brass. All of the radars, deck furniture, railings, doors, louvers, vents, crane cabins, etc... could be on one sheet of brass. These images aren't mine, they are off the internet but it illustrates the point.

I needed to have a thin shell for all of those cut-outs at the stern and the bulwarks at the bow, and I wanted them to flow smoothly with the rest of the hull. I figured glassing over the entire hull as shown in the third video would be the best way to ensure a smooth flow including these thin sections. Also, this is a very big model and I am clumsy so I'm sure the strength of the fibreglass saved me from repairing dents in a wood hull later on in the build :)
