Liberty Ship by Trumpeter

Post by Fright » Wed May 24, 2017 9:48 pm

Here are a two pictures of my 3rd model build. This was also my 1st attempt at using PE parts and I can truly say, without a proper bender, I ruined quite a few pieces. I tried to recreate how 'dirty' these hard working ships would get during their use in action. I used Testors Rust wash, graphite, pastels and washes to help 'dirty' her down. Also substituted a Super Slinky E guitar string for thread on lines. I enjoyed working on this ship but I realized that 1:350 scale is too small for my eyes and I will try to keep things 1:130 scale or larger in the future.

Somehow I lost the 2nd picture, so here it is. I'm getting ready to mount her into a foam base with water effects but this will be her background photo. OK - so what's the secret to posting pictures? I was able to post my 1st picture by using 'attachment' and uploading a photo from my computer, but it will not upload any others. They are all the same size files. Any suggestions?

Here is another picture of my Liberty ship which will eventually be 'lowered' into a foam base with water effect for the finished work. 'Thank you' goes out to Zoltan for your help explaining posting of pictures - cheers!

Zoltan, Donnie and Graham - many thanks for your comments and for taking a look at my build. I hope one day to try my hand at building a troop transport ship like the one my dad shipped out on during WWII. Need to improve on my skills before I attempt a 'scratch' build. Someone suggested I use a hospital ship that used the same hull design. My father's ship was the G.O.Squire AP-130. I'm amazed that none of the model companies pay honor to the ships that carried our soldiers overseas to win the wars.
