  1. Hello guys, the last two weeks I have made the Gallion. Here are some pics. First the gallions construction. It is made in the same way as I know it from the mediteranien ships like my Pinco Genovese. The grating of the gallion The door of the front Cheers! Angarfather
  2. Hey, Omega! Me and my family are very well. But the summer this year had been so warm that I was more interested in swimming, barbecue with friends and family as to sit in my dockyard. And there had been two wonderful journeys with my admiral to the Lofoten (north Norway) and to Denmark. Best regards Angarfather
  3. Aye, Omega 1234 very amazing pics from your model. When I was an boy I dreamed of sailing on such ships. Best regards Angarfather
  4. After finishing the out side planking I have made the planking of the main deck. The question was how wide the planks must be. The only binding information I found in the report of the wreck of the Mary Rose. Here is the plank width 50cm. This corresponds to 15mm in scale 1:33. After this I planked the inside of the main deck and cut in the gun ports. Next job was to make the fore castle. There were quite a few parts to do. There are deck beams, mast tracks, anchor and foremast bitt and another hatch. An other question was how to paint the walls inside. Because I didn't find a research result I did paint teh walls with English Red. But see yourself here are a few pics. Cheers!!! Hartmut
  5. Hello guys! The summer 2018 was to warm to stay in the dockyard for modeling. It was a good time for barbecue, swimming and lazing around with old friends sitting in the garden enjoying an ice-cold beer. And last but not least there were to wunderfull journeys together with my admiral to the Lofoten islands in Norway and the Møn Island in Danmark. In the last two weeks the planking was done. Here are some pics of the Golden Hind today. Best regards Angarfather
  6. Aye, Mates! Many thanks for your kind words and all the likes. The last weeks was not so much time for modelling the Golden Hind. There had been many interesting job. Thats ok. Here are some pics from the last days. To finsh the wales in the bow I first did mount the upper and the lower wale. After this I use spacer blocks to mount the bow part of the wale in the middle The last wale piece Next step was planking the space between the two lower wales and the stern. Cheers! Hartmut
  7. Yes, Canute is right. To say it with the words of an old song: Long we tost on the roaring main, now she's save ashore, Jack... Cheers Hartmut
  8. Thanks, guys for your kind compliments! Next steps was to make the keel, the stemson and the bob stay piece of the head. I have made the pieces from mahogany, planed with the thickness planer. Next I make and bring in the walls. Cheers Hartmut
  9. Hello Nils. fantastic work, I think the last picture of the main deck is particulary impressive. It makes it clear to me what dangerous weapon systems These ship had been. Cheers Hartmut
  10. Hello Nils, thanks for the wunderfull pics. from you amazing modell. Cheers Hartmut
  11. Hello Lawrence, she looks quite fine. I like the LED Lighting. Cheers Hartmut
  12. Hello Marcus, she looks quite fine. Congrats for finishing this nice dutch lady. best regards Hartmut
  13. Congratulation! An absolute wundervoll build and an awesome workmanship, Cheers! Hartmut
  14. Aye, Mates, many thanks for your kind interest in my new project. I am building the hull in an unusual way. Instead of a first planking I glue in plywood between the bulkheads. Than I had to sand it into its shape. Here are some pics from this way. This construction results in a very stable hull. Next. I'll plan the material for the wales, the keel and the deck beams. I still have a few pieces of mahagony that will work well for that. The planks I will make from pear.That can look pretty good together. Cheers Angarvater
  15. I have started the next project, an elizabethanian galleon. I use some plans I did find in two old german modeling books, Mondfeld, Historische Schiffsmodelle, a german classic from the early 70., and Stoeckel,Risse von Schiffen des 16. und 17. Jahrhunderts. Both authors showed very similar plans of an elizabethanian galleon, named Golden Hind or ex Pelican. It may be a model of Drakes Golden Hind. How Golden Hind looked exactly is unclear. But I like the plans, and they also seems quite right for the type Galeone of the english sailors in the time of queen Elizabeth Tudor. Fist step was to modify the slipway. For the aligning of the frames on the keel plate I use a cross line laser The plans The bulkheads Mounting of the bulkheads on the keel plate The shipyard guard (named Michel ) after work cheers!
