I finaly managed to get my first thread posted in this "scratch build logs in Progress" and under way.
This is comprising the Swan Class Sloop Pegasus not from the kit, but by Amati / Victory Models plan, recently purchased from an Italian models distributer Internet shop. I also bought the etched brass Panels which carefully soldered in multylayer mode provide splended, satisfying results in 3D optic Appeal.

For this model in 1:64 scale I have the intention to leave about 40 % of the port side Hull and decks unplanked, to scale the correct heights of all the decks and to fit the interior cabins and other operation facilities. Inspired by ways admiralty model displayed sight into the hull, the starboard side shall be completly tidy-planked in 1 layer structural planking. all frames are made from 10 layer ply in complete thickness of 5,5 mm. This allows to cut very filigrane and to keep the hight between decks to scalewise fit the tallness of the 1:64 crew. Appropriate to the stage of building I started to document all details in digitilised Fotos and would like to share these step by step with forum users / model builders showing interest. (more to follow)
 
So here she goes......
(inclusive the first 10 pics)

CIMG8676.JPG

CIMG8680.JPG
 
the Frames are taken from copies Templates out of  the plan and fixed to 5,5 mm thick 10 layer ply10 , the rest is done by good old jigsaw cutting out. Notice appr. 30mm hight space between the 4 decks

CIMG8682.JPG
 
this base-board enables a straight twistfree build of the hull

CIMG8692.JPG
 
the Frames are extreme light, stiff and stong enough to withstand bending of stringers planking

CIMG8699.JPG
 
the 1:64 figures I used for Demonstration have 28mm hight this would be 1,79m in reality, presuming the 18th century seamen  were smaller in those days, one I would recomend to use 25mm figures this in reality would be 1,60m

CIMG8700.JPG

CIMG8702.JPG

CIMG8713.JPG

CIMG8716.JPG

 
forestanding pics should be self explaining, but notice that the bow and the keel beam is only supplementory. In order to avoid the time intensive rabet-cutting, the final bow- and keel wood beams shall be fitted after planking. This will give a clean and tidy look, as if the planking were fitted very precisely into actual rabets.

I am seeking for means to edit the pictures with text explainations but find no "Editor" button, nor a "full Editor" one, allthough the pics seem to be in this post post, who can kindly help ?
 
Reload...., so finally I think it works with the editing and text for zthe pics.
At this stage my sincere thanks to all fellow members and Moderators who gave assistance in pushing out the boat !
 
So here follows the second lot of the build log Pictures and explainations

This is presenting the third lot in my build log.......
 
CIMG8805.JPG
planking of starboard side is well under way. It comprises a single layer of 5, 6, and 8mm planking 1,5mm thick strips pf nutwood. Sanding down the outer roughnesses leaves about at least 1 to1,2 mm remaining thickness.
 
CIMG8816.JPG
cargo base deck is mounted. To answer the question how decks are placed into the hull? Pls note that they shall be slipped in from above. Is is easy because the deck is of 0,8mm ply and preplanked with 1 x 3 mm Planks. The shaping and Fitting is done from cardboard templates. Here the "shipyard baseplate" could allready be removed, as the lightweight hull is very riged and free of windings.
 
CIMG8821.JPG
Sbd side planked except for a few Planks where I Need Access to the interior. for those who are missing the square Little oar outcuts, pls note theat These will be cut in later on when the inner bullwark is being planked. I have bee able to avoid any gram of putty on the entire hull, because that would desturb naturak wooden optic.

the naval inspector has no objections so far. in the foreground the additional beams can be seen that rest on the strigers at appr. 3mm below decklevel, to allow appr. compensation in hight.

the target was at this building stage, not to compete with the fabulous 1:48 scale "swan class Sloops" and their builders introduced in this forum in any way, but just to please myself for transferring own idias into humble modeling results and in scale 1:64

Welcome, Nils.  This is an interesting project you have started.  I will be following along as you go.

 

When you are writing a post, do you see a button labeled "More Reply Options" next to the "Post" button?  Clicking that will open the full editor and allow you to move pictures around in the post and get them next to the text.

 

If you don't see that button, we'll have to wait for someone with more experience than me to come in and explain what is going on :).

Interesting project, Nils.  I'll follow along.    Question for you: won't planking the decks be more difficult after you've planked the outside?  Or are those planks just for support?

i will be following this project with interest, but have noticed that the stringers will possibly hinder any internal work you have planned and they also looks like they have taken quite an acute angle on the bow, thats how it appears to me looking at the photo,

Hi Mark,

no, not in this case, remember the preplanked decks are basicly from 0,8mm ply, flexable and only appr. 3/4 the width, so they can be sliped in from above, (even the Long gundeck !). You shall see later on in the build log. also on the planked starboard side I left away 3 Planks on decklevel until the decks is fitted and permanently fixed. Works very well.

Hi Kevin,

you`ll see later on in the build log, that the Position of the stringers follow the deck line Levels ( appr 3mm lower), next to giving the hull rigid stiffness they provide laying on of additional Support beams under the decks. The angles at bow create no Problems at all.

Hello Nils,

 

This is a very interesting project you're working on, I will follow with great interest :)

 

Hi Aldo,

so you´re´also working on the "Pegasus" but from the Amati kit. I found this quite expensive and therefor started with the plan the etched parts, the nice Little resin namegiving gallion figure. Purchasing wood, paints, glues, tools, etc, there also sums up quite a lot for me as well. Usually I do not build from kits, but since I came across this wonderfull Forum and having a good built model in mind that bares all my intended specialities, I found so many insperations from the fellow modelers build-logs in the Forum, so I got started in April this year. Builders that prefer to stick to the kit may find some Features strange, but that is the spice in the soup isnt it ? My building -log is nearly being edited and updated daily.

How far did you get to date

 

Nils

Nils,

 

I'd like to suggest that rather then "edit" the first post, just drop to the bottom of the page click in the "Reply to this topic" box.  The comments from us will then be interspersed with your steps in building.  It will give the buildlog a better flow.

 

Anyway, you've done an excellent job on building this ship so far.

many thanks for this good advice, I shall follow your suggest straight away when posting the 6th + 7th lot of my build-log. It is also nice to know there is

an extra helping Moderator`s eye open ready to give assistance when necessary and to keep the log at smooth run. I had to look up the word "interspersed" and now learnt something to my vocabluary. Pls. excuse my english and perhaps the spelling, if it does not allways hit the nail in the Center, but I hope that to date my build-log was understandable for all that are following it.

following Mark`s advice here are the continuing sections 6 and 7 of my Pegasus build-log

CIMG8968.JPG

here at the sternplate there are horizontal openings, this is where I find Counter Position for placing the clamps during planking. Also when the decks are slipped in through the Frames from above, the deck can be pushed out rear to appr. 1/3 of ist length til the front part flushes into the correct Level. Then push back the deck bowwards

CIMG8975.JPG

CIMG8979.JPG

The naval inspector angerly does not approve cardboard interior.....


CIMG8985.JPG
several bukheads have to be planked from both sides and equiped with vent openings in the 18 century type doors

CIMG8987.JPG

the gratings are prefixed with Framework and then fitted into the appr. deck positions. Tight fit, so they need not permanently be glued in

CIMG8989.JPG

I Chose for interior the natural Woods pine for decks and walls, mahagony for frames, buche(german Name)for pillars, boxwood for stairs

CIMG8991.JPG
around the upper well area have to be carefull not to dammage the venetian Lamellen of the Containment

CIMG9009.JPG
it must have been about 25 doors fixed in the total of the visual walls in corridors and side cabin rooms. Note that the portside interior has been left away to enable sight from above and exterior

CIMG9010.JPG
one of the front bulkheads ( from the cargo deck floor to the intermediate deck above

CIMG9012.JPG
I know this Looks a Little bit like norwegen Sauna, but it`s not too fancy, so the 18th century in Crew quarters sends greetings, and the Budget of the admiralty is running low, because most of it has been spent on the five swan class vessels Prior to this build

Hi Nils,

 

a very interest build do you show us. The internal fitting is looking great.

It seems you have much experience in model building

here it can be seen that the Access when working from above is still reatively easy, even in scale 1:64

CIMG9040.JPG

CIMG9045.JPG

this is the first sample 6 pounder I put roughly together to check dimentions, positions. The best suitable gunbarrels and carriages I found at RB-Models Webshop. They provide even Little kits, every modellist shall modify anyhow..... here I fitted splints into the axises and brass hoops around the wheels, further improvement pending

CIMG9049.JPG

CIMG9055.JPG
 
the hight of gunbarrel passing through gunport hatch is OK straight away, the Barrels are 32 mm long (6 pounders)
at this stage ´m not quite sure if I should apply chemical blackening to the brass parts
 
CIMG9062.JPG

from abone sight is given (portside) right down to keel and cargodeck floor
The portside gun supportbeam-rails have not been fitted Jet
 
CIMG9086.JPG
looking aftwards we find the pantry established rear of the upper well Containment, in the foreground is a removable grating over the hold hatch in the intermediate deck. The opening shall be secured by a brass railing and left open later on

Hi Aldo,

so you´re´also working on the "Pegasus" but from the Amati kit. I found this quite expensive and therefor started with the plan the etched parts, the nice Little resin namegiving gallion figure. Purchasing wood, paints, glues, tools, etc, there also sums up quite a lot for me as well. Usually I do not build from kits, but since I came across this wonderfull Forum and having a good built model in mind that bares all my intended specialities, I found so many insperations from the fellow modelers build-logs in the Forum, so I got started in April this year. Builders that prefer to stick to the kit may find some Features strange, but that is the spice in the soup isnt it ? My building -log is nearly being edited and updated daily.

How far did you get to date

 

Nils

 

 

Wow! you build fast, Nils, I really envy you, I started my work almost a year ago and I've only gotten as far as planking the outside of the hull.

Very nice details there, she's looking great.

Aldo
the keellaying was in April this year, we now are nearly 4 months later I asume that would adequate for the build Status provided one has the time to do so. But I am retired from work and took up ship modeling again. The reason it Looks like speedy session Basis on the fact that I started issuing buildlog Posts out of my photo documentation just a few days ago.

8th lot of my Pegasus buildlog......
 
CIMG8963.JPG
note, the sternpost has been sanded down to half its width Prior to planking, so final width after planking and sanding is at average 4,5mm`, trust that the rudder shall later on be of this thicknness at it`s widest thickness
 
CIMG9013.JPG
the 3 mm width planking of deck and walls are identical (3mm x 64=192mm in reality, seems realistic, being about 1,5 width of the sailors shoes). By the way, all Deck and wall planking edges are charcoaled by means of a soft pencil. This gives the tarline effect regarless to thickness even after sanding
 
CIMG9059.JPG
allthough many wooden structural parts, the hull is of remarkable low weight and still stiff and rigid
 
CIMG9076.JPG
selfexplaining view
 
CIMG9093.JPG
view aftwards, now in foreground the sailroom has been added, behind are grating on hold hatch, Upper well housing and pantry. On starboard side traffic corridors, sailorcrew and marinesoldiers accomodations. Between upper well and pantry (here not visable) a staircase goes down to the cargo floor. This may be the main trafficway for fast Access from the filling room (under the waterline) via aft staircase in the intermediate deck up to the gundeck
 
CIMG9094.JPG
same Features with view from top, aft
 
CIMG9097.JPG
birds view intermediate deck nearly complete.......
 
CIMG9111.JPG
the sailroom space seems to be limited, but could not be increased due to spaces between surrounding facilities
 
CIMG9115.JPG
interior staircases fitted with railings to increase safety in battle and when ship is rolling
 
CIMG9117.JPG
again intermediate naval inspection..., the officer means that in a far future a day will come, where even the stairs will have to equiped with handrails
 
 
at this Moment I have`nt made up my mind yet if I should apply coppering, White "Antifouling Appeal" that allows the plank and grain structure to be recognised, or nothing of both.
Would appreciate any fellow builders coments on this....

lot 10 of my Pegasus buildlog.....
 
 
CIMG9169.JPG
doing positioning check on gundeck
 
CIMG9173.JPG
hatch entry of front downward staircase. Belaying pin rack from RB- Models modified with brass rollers in both Posts
 
CIMG9187.JPG
self explaining....
 
CIMG9190.JPG
looking at both cargo and intermediate deck view through portside outcut
 
CIMG9194.JPG
because of no later possible Access to the eyelets above deck all such Points have to be safely countered. the brass pins I use have large enbossed flathead, are very priceworthy at Ebay, are available in different lengths and differ from 0,5mm to 0,8mm in wire Diameter, depending on where they shall be fitted. gun-carriage eylets have 0,5mm diam. whereby the gun deck and bulwark-tackles shall be of 0,8mm. Fitting goes together with inner bulwark planking later on
 
CIMG9196.JPG
self explaining
 
CIMG9215.JPG
this Status of the gundeck does not hinder the slipping in from above, due to it`s flexibility
 
CIMG9221.JPG
These wonderfull milled capstans (in propper scale !) are also RB models Inetnet shop product. under the grating aft of the chainpump boxes the rear staircase runs down from gundeck to intermediate deck
 
CIMG9227.JPG
how to Position the portside guns and their tackle when there is no deck........
 
CIMG9230.JPG
port of the main hatch grating I needed an extra Little deckextention to place the appr. eyelet tacklepoints. The gun is not permanently fitted yet, only for Position check
 
 
 
At this stage I am thinking of how doing best the Aft quarter badges in order not to ruin the beautifull etched brass parts, shall probably provide solution in the next lot
