HMS Sovereign of the Seas by Sjors - DeAgostini - 1:84

269 posts in this topic

Welcome to my log.

 

Sovereign of the Seas was a 17th-century warship of the English Navy.

She was ordered as a 90-gun first-rate ship of the line of the English Royal Navy, but at launch was armed with 102 bronze guns at the insistence of the king.

She was later renamed Sovereign, and then Royal Sovereign.

The ship was launched on 13 October 1637 and served from 1638 until 1697, when a fire burned the ship to the waterline at Chatham.

Enjoy.

I think I will pull up a chair and watch your build. I've caught a couple S.o.t.S. builds midway through or almost complerte but not from the start. I look forward to seeing yours come together.

Welcome EJ.

 

You have a seat on the first row  :D  :D

Beware that it's not going fast at the moment because I also have the Agamemnon.

That one get's my first attention but at the moment I can nothing do on her .

So that's the reason I will start this one.

Hi Sjors,  talking about a challenge, tackling the " Gouden Duivel"  is a challenge for sure.

According to Björn Landström book " Sailing ships" this is how the S.o.S. was nicknamed by the Dutch in the 17th Century

 

I'll follow along

Is there still a spot left for this old Dutchman (cupping an eye, looking around), ah yes, next to Mark.  Oh sorry Mark, I didn't mean to poke in the ribs :P;)

Wow, Sjors, what ambition - - building such a complicated ship.  Looking like you have a great start.

 

Cheers,

Welcome to all and each of you !!!!!!

The popcorn machine will be placed at the end of this post.

 

@ Jason,

 

Welcome.

I've just waiting for you  ;)

 

@ Dave,

 

YW 

And all the credits goes to my own Moderator, Anja  :D  :D

And thank you ( even I almost did do nothing )

 

@ Ken,

 

Take a seat and welcome

 

@ Mark,

 

You are still a nice gentleman.

You are the only one that see my new floor  :D  :D

( and also the only one who new that we have a new floor  ;)  ;) )

 

@ Christian,

 

Thanks for pointing out the name the Dutch sailors give this beauty....Gouden Duivel or Golden Devil......

And I just love challenges !

 

@ Piet,

 

Be careful with Mark please !

It's a ...man !!!!

And you now that the Dutch are people with a lot of ambitions  :P  :P

 

Then something else.

 

On a Dutch forum there is a builder named Pietsan and he has build the HMS Diana in such way that I'm drooling when I see the pictures.

He also just started to build the SoS from De Agostini and I will follow him with what he is doing.

He is explaining it on a very clear way, almost better then the manual.

And of course he is building quicker then me because I have still the Aggy to finish.

Sorry to be late! I went to the wine shop to get something to further enjoy this build.

SotS Is in my wish list, as you can see in my sig. Will follow your build closely as I'm sure it'll be a masterpiece!

Another big girl, Sjors. How will you ever fit in the bathtub with her? No room for rubber duckies.

I like the way your bulkheads go together, that looks way more stable than what I have seen in other kits.

It's not standing, only sitting.

This build can take a long time because I have to finish my Agamemnon and of course work!

90 % of the builders here are retired and I belong to the last 10 % ( joke old people ) :D:D:D:D:D

My real name is Tom. I am just a few steps ahead (planking). I am following the instructions and skipping around. I think I am going to go ahead and get this first planking complete.
