Hi Folks

 

I must be the member that visits the forums at most, but to shy to begin to build several kits that I have waiting.

 

It wasn´t till our last earthquake that some models built by my father in Pittsburgh. I begun to buy some of them on eBay.

 

I´m talking about basic kits from Scientific (solid hulls), but belive me, he was an artist. I woud like to share my log of the 1851 America in the near future. But I wanted to share some different first

 

About 6 years ago I bougt the Royale Caroline Kit and the Giorgio Oscoulaty Anatomy of the Ship Book.

The Kit Fogure head is metal casted and it doesn't look to good for me.

 

More ove, looking ad the drowings from Giorgio Osculati and some carvings from the Rope.I begun lookig for an upgrade.

Many years ago I've foubd an artist who got amazing results, He made all the carvingsor arnaments in brass, but he didn't sell anything. 

 

Today with the help of a friend of mine we came up to this results (a 3D printed figurehead in resin) that I wanted to share with you.

 

Please let me know if you like them. I'm looking for a good gold paint to airbruh it.

 

Thanks a lot!

Hi Tony

 

Thanks for your interest!

 

I took the images from the Anatomy of the ship Series from the Royal Caroline to make the starting front and side views (at the negining made using a pencil)  to start. Some of the drawings of the book were out of scale though, so I did further research on the web and begun to make the ·D final scketch doing interpolation and extrapolation.

 

I took a lot of time and corrections when it came to the time to fit it below the bowsprit. If I considered the size of the Crown from Giorgio's Osculati drawing, the Crown didn't fit in the actual space. Then another issue was the smaller Cherub.  I had to use all my "artistic" ability to work the proportions.

 

Then the Kit's Keel seems to be a bit unaccurate, so I had to adapt the dress a bit.

Nice 3D print and a good example of what 3D printing can be used for.  I am currently teaching myself 3D (TurboCAD) to generate some 3D prints of cannon etc for future products.  I think creating figures is a little beyond my capability as I need to copy rather than create :)  What software are you using to draw and then generate the 3D files?

 

cheers

Hello Pat

 

Thanks for your interest. There are two softwares: Free forms plus and Geomagic DesignX. This are proffesional softwares that I had the chance to use in the office of a frind of mine, There are quiet expensive.

 

Kind Regards,

 

Eduardo

 Here is another view from Giorgio Osculate drawing. You can see the difference in scale and proportions as well.
