ORP "Judgement Day" based on Doyusha kit 1:250
« on: March 06, 2012, 10:01:59 PM »
Hello!

Time for my first WIP here. This project began few years ago , I think in 2007. Then a sudden lack of will to finish it and my battleship was takin’ dust for over 5 years. Two weeks ago , along with award on the contest for Anakin’s Pod Racer , the will and force had return :D  Now I’ll finish it, I’m sure of in 99% :)

Anyway…let me introduce you…ORP (SRP in English –Ship of Republic of Poland) “Judgement Day” – polish battleship of XXI century , armed with conventional guns and cannons, two cannons stabilized with gyroscopes and one gauss cannon, AA missiles, torpedoes and four nuclear missile launchers. Battleship also carries one UCAV,4 Marlin interceptors and 36 W-66 “Werewolf” attack helicopters.

 I’ll  translate whiff story from polish to English but now I’ll concentrate on building my little ship :)

Here is the topic I began on ARC:     
http://s362974870.onlinehome.us/forums/air/index.php?showtopic=205880&st=0&p=1951612&hl=judgement%20day&fromsearch=1&#entry1951612

I'll post new photos here when I'll get back home :)

In my stash I found  parts from toy set called "ROBOMAC". There were nice mech legs , radar's antennas and guns. One of guns became gauss cannon and two others serve as gyroscope stabilized guns.

A little progress today...because glue has ended too fast...

First of all, deck looks now more like one part. Scotch self-adhesive foil is awesome :) I don't have place now to make a better photo:


...and with use of flash (the scotch is reflective :D )


I also worked on main mast:


...and WoMM launcher/silo :D

Hello everyone :)

Today I ordered 1:700 Admiral Vinogradov by Kitech = a lot of spare parts for my ship:) Now I'm waiting for it ...a little progress:









Movable silo doors and anchor chains ("Battleship chains" by Georgia Satellites <---great song :) ) were the worst part of today's work.

Any help will be appreciated :)

Well , I need to buy simple RC aparature because I realised that this "wonder of modern electronic" from RC toy car is completely useless in my battleship  I hope I'll buy it today or next week.

I' pretty sure that I just don't see bad points of my model cause I see it every day... so can you tell me something about these "couple of things" ? :) Any suggestion will be appreciated :)

I finished work with airplanes (converted Su-33 by Trumpeter 1:350) and added more guns. I'll add photos today or tommorow :)

Thanks :) But there is a long way to action. First of all I have to make rudder and cooling work. I hope I'll finish working on it this week. Then railings and other small parts and finally painting and weathering.

I think about that camo...probably tribute to survived polish destroyer - ORP Lighting

 Really, its one thing-the rail gun. to my eye, it looks...out of place. When I look at it, I see a much smaller gun ( like a submarine deck gun, or the bow gun on something like a corvette ) greatly enlarged. Its a look that seems out of synch with the look of the rest
of the ship's ordnance.  Something like a hood, or turret, over the assembly, might add to the sense of mass and presence. 

 I really like the Marlins, and the muzzle-loader is great! ( A muzzle-loading Wave motion gun, perhaps? )  Looking forward to the rest of the build!

Maybe you're right , I'll try to do something with gauss gun. Muzzle loader is a kind of "celebration" cannon, you know , shoot on beginning and ending of mission etc :)

Last photos before painting. I've added funnels for shafts because of strong vibrations coming from transmission. Also added railings and removed gaps beetween superstructure and deck:

So...again I have to built a model as fast as possible. It should be ready for 26 febuary. I hope I'm able to do it. I'll try to continue with my DESERT WARFARE GB project but finishing JUDGEMENT DAY is my primary target. OK , stern deck:


Anyway, I don't know why this topic is in SF category...This is still ship ,  I think :) If not , then OK :)

You're going to add a few more guns, right?

Hate to have it go out under-armed like that. ;)

No. No more guns :)

:-* Tell me about that fighter looking aircraft  aft of the big structure

Well , this is scratchbuilt UCAV. It was build by my friend without conotations with any real or sf subject.

Only float :)

Tommorow model contest in Bytom, Silesia starts. "Judgement Day" will be there. Now it's packed and ready to travel there. Maybe in the evening it'll be "fully operational" and I'll make some photos just before the contest :) Wish her luck (and me maybe too :) ). I also take my Polish Do-335 only to make JMN's mad :D

That's disappointing news, artoor. And if you took the time to convert it to an ice-breaker, by then the lake would thaw.
