Victorian Steam Launch My "WINDERMERE" by teleman

Post by teleman » Sun Jan 08, 2012 11:05 pm

I present my humble little build of the Steam Launches that cruised the river Thames.
I bashed the Constructo 1:26 kit to have a lot of fun, plus to assist myself in learning to become a better model shipwright. I still consider myself a novice to this hobby, and will do so for quite sometime yet...

Mario :) :oops:

The 1st pic is by me the rest are by my wife who's hobby is photography. I hope you enjoy the pic's as much as I enjoyed building her...

Hi Mario,

This is certainly not a humble build, it's a great build. With all the small details, pfffff.
And you, a novice! I think you are already an expert on shipbuilding.
I hope to see more of your work. To enjoy and to learn from.

And compliments to your wife. She has made some great pictures :text-coolphotos:

Anja :happy-sunshine: and
Sjors :auto-driving:

PS When Sjors is done building, we will ask your wife to make some pictures of the Corsair :oops:
