Well, well. Seems I started it all wrong, but I´m trying to right the wrongs. Here are my modelling to the present day.

Don, that´s what I see ^^. Really have this attraction to medieval ships, which aren´t much explored. Found this one and had to build it.

Hello Vivian, 

 

I am glad to greet another lover of medioeval ships, and a lady too! While it is true that you ladies are not so numerous to represent this wonderful hobby of ship model building, it is certainly true with respect of quality of the job. Some of the best models I ever saw were made by female modellers. So, good luck with your build and show us how a Portuguese caravel looked five hundred years ago!

 

There are some wonderful portuguese sources to help you. In fact, the best books on shipbuilding of the period which we have today are portuguese. As an example, just take a quick net search for "Fabrica de naus" written by father Fernando de Oliveira back in 1580.

Also, you may do a search for a ship called "Nostra senhora dos martires" also known as "The Pepper wreck" for inspiration.  

 

And as a welcome gift for you, if you like medioeval ships, take a few moments to look at this wonderful movie:

Best wishes!

Hey, Riverboat - I got some time to learn how to really do that planking, but was in overall glad with the results. Have to sand a bit and take out some barbs before the varnishing. There I´ve got some doubts for my kit says it would go really black on the hull, which I find not so beautifull as a more wooden varnish. Any tips or information on that would be very apreciated ^^

 

Doretolmin, tyvm for your welcoming. I wanted to put to work the Nau São Gabriel, flagship for Vasco da Gama´s expedition through Cape Hope but found no kits, so, it´s already on my wish list for scratch building in the future, hope not too distant. I found a thesis on the importance and evolution of portuguese caravels, some 241 pages of pure knowledge, goes by THE HISTORY AND DEVELOPMENT OF CARAVELS A Thesis by GEORGE ROBERT SCHWARZ. Loved your hints too, all info on the subject is hard to come by. Looking through some barcha and borinel models (pre-caravel trading ships), now, for study. Ty for the present ^^

 

Anja - Yey! I found it! =D

Had some problems with my deck, since I ignored the step in which I should cut off the initial frame before planking it. Now I got this ugly unmathcing woods all over. Modified a bit of the original plan, since it can´t be followed due to an error, still don´t know if a print error or cutting, or even a plan error regarding the manufacturer. Some minor problems on the sterncastle too, as the piece in the kit weren´t fitted to fill all the gap, so, had to improvise.

Vivian,

Looks good! Where are the mismatched pieces of wood you are talking about?

Frank, ty!

 

Sam, on the deck planking. I should have ripped off the framing, which where there only for the hull planking - I left it there and took it out after I had finished the deck. U can see it on the 6th picture, next to the rail. Since I don´t want to make a second layer, I´m still thinking how to fix it. I´m learning though, and the forum is helping a lot. Ppls´ logs are very helpful, almost a tutorial. ^^

Vivian,

Thats frustrating, but its how we learn - well at least it how I learn... sort of, I usually have to make the same mistake 2 or 3 times first  :huh: 

.

 

I have a similar problem with my build IE; holes in the decking, perhaps you can employ some of the same fixes I am planing - ropes, buckets mops?

 

There is a thread here in the decking forum that may help.

http://modelshipworl...-brick-a-brack/

Shes looking good though, you will work through it

 

And yes there are some great build/tutorials here.

Sam, many thanks. I thought to put some barrels, but now I have far more things to cover them mistakes. Sometimes we think about the crude view of the boat and forget about it´s life! Ropes, barrels, cannon balls, people - all of them give life to our models. Rlly happy I found the forum.

Vivian,

Glad I could help out. I have received so much help from people I have never met and most likely never will, its amazing. My humble little build is so much more than it would be with out the input from people at MSW yours will too I bet. MSW is really a great place, it was initially a resource for me, but its become much much more.

As of today. I´ve got some minor work to do before putting it to varnish, but hope to get there till next weekend.

 

Noob error - did not put much thought about the deck and when was planking, let it go the full lenght. Now I see I should have cutted them so my planking would not look like a fake one. Thinking on put some lines and dots on that, before varnishing - don´t know how it will look like after that, but...

Think I´ll be more careful next time with bringing the planks together. Got this minor gap to fill, now.

Well. That´s it. Would love to have some critics on what I´ve done so far. When I look to this hull I get very proud of it, but I´m not so naive that I can´t get some directions from more experienced builders. ^^
