One day I tecided that I would makeower one bad model of mine and make Superstar around it. Year was 2012 while I went in Helsinki by the Superstar again. Idea cam suddenly, the Superstar is too dear me and I would have one such in my collection.
Why I built one Tallink Superstar again?
Look back in past, 11.-13 January I was on Silja Serenade Helsinki-Stockholm cruise. The cruise begin from Helsinki but I live in Tallinn. Then was need to get in Helsinki. I took Superstar for crossing the Finland pay. Tallink Star was in dock and Superstar was on route. Leave of Baltic Princess didn't suitable for us and I had to take early ferry.
In my cruise pag was cardoard model of the ferry. It is along with me on almost every trip as talisman. Travel to Helsinki was stormy and the Superstar roughed hardly by waves. During it remind me that I have Superstar along and in head cam idea show this model in the info. Info manager sayd that captain is wery busy and I may not go on bridge for showing model. So they suggested me return and show it again at another trip. So I did at going home, I went in Superstar info and I shown the model again. During it happened somethiong what I couldn't wait and believe. I hoped to get on bridge and meet the captain and show my model myself but no. Supertar restaurants manager cam in ship info and watched my model. It liked him wery much and asked that would I leave the model them. I replied that I no leave the model and I sayd that I build one such for them too. After this he asked, would I and my cruise mate wisit buffee restaurant. It was unbelievable situtuation and we went in buffee restaurant. I was as special quest on the ship and hard to believe was it dream or reality. It shows how friendly the Superstar crew is. I never forget that emotions and friendliness.
The model showing wasn't planned, idea cam suddenly during the cruise.
Crew of the superstar was wery nice with me and I have built one model for them. I am fan of the Superstar and it is big glad to build a model.
School took lots of time and building progress took 5 months. The model is done in special care and love because it is for a good ship crew. It is my keen present for saying thanks to Tallink Superstar crew for kindness and friendlyness.
Cardboard Superstar material is easy cardboard and paper generally. For first I calculated scale and drew easy plan. Details have placked with eye sights. Sorry for colors because I hadn't correct tones of green. The original of Superstar is as spring grass and every complect of acrilic colors don't include that tone. I mixed together usual green with yellow and so tone becam something similar. Deck detailes are simplified. Sides of hull have cut out in one piece and one deck is between them for adding strencth. Ship itself is covered with tape for do the model stronger.
looking back to january 2013. Little Superstar got to ride by big Superstar as little star:
