Hiya Bob, as a matter-of-fact...
I usually take shots of my build as I move along, then after about a week I get what I have and put them together in a partial video. Though there are times where I might take my time in the build, posting on the 'other side', making the video, taking the pics, sometimes showing them on here...finding the "proper" soundtrack (that usually takes the most time), then editing...I can do most of the video/sound editing within one (1) night.
I am pretty use to the programs ( and I'm sure there are better ones out there ) that I use in developing these YT vids, but I am comfortable with what I got so far! As for the actual Camera work, I leave that to my daughter who allows me to use her phone!!!! ( Imagine that "fight" we have when I ask her!!!!
esp. her being a teen-ager!!! ).
Great job! The video's nicely done also! I think you spent more time doing the video than I do building a ship!
James...Thanks for the comment, and YES ( as a former 'scope-dope' ) I Can NOT Imagine the work load of those OS's on those cruisers keeping an "eye on the sky"!!!
As I was researching GALVESTON, I come across that she was Too Top-heavy due to all those radar sets!!! ( read one article that her hull was under severe stress (= cracked??). Just Understanding the Talos system, storage, bringing in onboard, and assembly was QUITE the read!!! Very Interesting!!!
I did leave a couple of links in My video about that ... hope you might have peruse them, Great knowledge!!
In Fact.... It has gotten me So Interested in building other 50-60s era cruisers!! ( pipe dream ) .... don't want to upset the wife!!
Thank you for the slick-production video; really enjoyed it.
Those early CGs / CLGs were really complex, engineering-wise, trips into the deep unknown.
Especially since Clevelands and Baltimores were certainly not designed with guided missiles, massive sensor arrays, gobs of electronics, "in mind."
Hi Mario, firstly, well done there mate!
I trust/hope that you had fun with that one - much time have you spent. I've just watched the video twice to take it all in and had a lightbulb moment for you. Please bear with me, how good would it be if the kit manufacturers presented their instructions in the same graphics format and caption style that you have done here? From go to woa like this.. Instead of paper instructions they could include a CD or just a hyperlink printed on the kit box. Would that be cool or what!
I noticed that you used Primer coat on the model, so what are the advantages of using this product before you add your final colours? I've always just used my paints straight over the styrene or resin. Not cool what I do, please be honest.
I'm interested in your ECM Outriggers shown, I see a lot of ships from the 1960s/70's had that style of ECM. Please provide any details you can on these as I'd like to model similar on my CONSTELLATION CV.
Also, I'm still amazed at the work you've done on that SPS-43 array. I've never seen such a job well done on those at any scale - let alone 700 scale.
I much appreciate the time and effort that you go to to show me/us your outstanding modelling and film work.
So what's next on your slipway?
Keep 'em coming!
