Recommended Posts

2019-03-19%2017.21.41.jpghello all,

 

In march I started on a Landing ship medium in scale 1/35. dimensions of a LSM lenght 203'6'' or 62,027 metres, the beam is 24'6'' or 10,515 metres. In scale 1/35 this will be 1m 772 x 30cm.

These photo's are of the vehicle deck.

hello all,

 

work started on the frames under vehicle deck, most of them are recktangle of shape, with curved frames towards stem and stern.

That is looking very cool. I have a set of plans for the German MarineFahrePram (MFP) which was the German version of a tank landing craft. One day (after I kiss this job goodbye) I want to scale them up to 1/35th and build one. It's basically a big box with a ramp on one end, it doesn't even have any curves to speak of.

Looks brilliant, although it must be tedious cutting all those parts.  Very clean too - no evident filler applications!

 

Hopefully not material but those imperial/metric conversions look a bit off to me - 24’6” is surely more like 7-8m than 10m, given that a metre is roughly 39” (3ft 3in)?

That's looking great. You're gonna need a lot of plastic for this:D. I'm just gonna sit back and follow this interesting build.

hello all

 

at first I placed some ovals on vehicle deck, had no idea what they where, after seeing some photo reference, I made these manholes.

2019-04-19%2012.35.24.jpg

2019-04-19%2012.35.30.jpg

at first I had to drill 10 oval holes all over vehicle deck, 3 in front, 4 at the middle and 3 at the end of vehicle deck

2019-04-22%2010.40.13.jpg

2019-04-22%2010.40.18.jpg

I only made one manhole, casted all the others

then it was time to do some more work on the bow, the under side of the structure
