Good afternoon, colleagues! I bring to your attention the test assembly of the new woodenkit from "MasterKorabel" Scale 1/72 The tender "AVOS" (in russian тендер "Авось") is the first ship of the Russian-American Company that was built in Alaska in Novo-Arkhangelsk in 1806 (now is Sitka, USA) The total length of the model is 42 centimeters 8 guns - 3 pound. Archival drawings of the tender "Avos" not preserved, unfortunately. But the Russian tenders are very similar to the English tenders. Russian shipbuilders used the English school. Therefore, designers "MasterKorabel" took as a basis one of the drawings from National Maritime Museum (Greenwich). In the basis - is Arrow (1823), a 10-gun single-masted Cutter, as designed and built by Captain Hayes. Tender "AVOS" was smaller in size than the "prototype". This drawing has undergone a change in length and width to match the basic dimensions of the tender "AVOS". As a result, the basis for a new theory and new circuits of hull. In short, this is a complete reconstruction of designers "MasterKorabel". So, here are the first photos
Hello everybody, This is an express build log for a 8-oared lifeboat made by Master Korabel. This is my second one, I have already built one of these for my St. Gabriel Model. The laser cut parts for these tiny boats are very delicate and fragile and I managed to break a couple of them. Fortunately these little mishaps didn't affect the result. Also, I deviated from the instructions a little bit and I think it made the assembly slightly easier. This tiny kit consists of a few veneer and plywood billets: First few steps, were straightforward and I simply followed the instructions: 1. I beveled and assembled the center keel. 2. Next, the instructions tell you to attach some stern pieces to the keel frame at this point. I decided not to do it right now and wait until a later stage. The reason is that it is really hard to align these stern pieces with the keel frame and make them perfectly perpendicular. Instead I skipped ahead and assembled the jig and inserted (but not glued!) all the bulkheads into it. The bulkheads are very fragile and I managed to break a couple of the rotating bulkheads in the bow section of the boat while dryfitting them. Simply gluing them back together with CA glue solved the problem:
