Very good job Peter. I tried to build Santa Maria last year as well. You can check if you want. May i ask which method you are using for tapering the strips at the bow? Do you cut or sand them? Thanks.

Thanks, I cut them with a knife along a steel ruler. Works very well. I didn’t know others like yourself already build the SM, I go and look into your log for sure. :)

Hi guys,

 

Today a small update on some other things. Planking of the hull continues slowely...

So, I made the base of the main mast.

That certainly is an interesting way to get the hull planked, and it looks decent too. Nicely done.

Hi guys,

 

Today nothing special to show, only my progression of the planking proces.

So, on the picture below you can see the different line the second layer takes in comparison of the first layer.

***Chapter 10 - Hullplanking finished***

 

Hi Guys,

 

Today I have finished the planking proces of the hull. Both sides are the same. 

 Sit back and hopefully enjoy!

Looks fantastic, you have done an excellent job!

Were there any extra difficulties in using pre-cut strips rather than one long plank?

Those pre-cut strips do not deter from the beauty of this hull. You have done a masterful job sir. Perhaps this is a method that could be adopted for my build? (at least for the first layer of planking. It would make things a little easier maybe......) I will have to give that some serious thought. Thanks also then for the inspiration :)

it works much better pre-cutting the strips. Easier to handle and the result is a nice pattern of colors on your hull.

Thanks Wallace. I’m sure your hull of the Victory will be a beauty as well. 

You can apply this method to almost any hull, but sometimes an other method is needed depending on the ships timeperiod and origin and how accurate of the timeperiod you want to represent.

That is what will influence my final decision sir. I obviously want it to look right. But, if I do this on the first skin it will not be noticed :)

When it's all about the rudder...

Hi friends,

 

Today I finished a simple task....constructing the rudder! However, Columbus set sail for the Indies and ended up in current America. So the rudder is part of keeping the right course and is pretty significant for this ship. 

Before I'll show you the steps of constructing the rudder, first some other work I've done this weekend...

 

d9983eb726e65b64992a8473d32e2484.jpg

b9afc3b371c5cc5a82cdf4d191a95c6a.jpg

 

Step by step she turns into a nice ship...


Back towards the rudder then. It comes with the kit pre-made from walnut and all I had to do is some sanding to get rid of the laser burns.

 

fcc5519640a6bdf60510b16a88e651c7.jpg

 

I didn't liked the thickness of the wood, it felt to bulky to me and I was wondering what was wrong. So after a while I decided to taper the end part of the rudder. 

 

43b02f8a1f86ea100a611b5d96cd2c4d.jpg

 

c13cefc0211204d61b1f68621e66f24c.jpg

 

Much better result so to say. Less bulky!

So in the next picture, I'll show some parts. The rudder, the helm(stick) (red arrow) and a metal band which is made from a strip of brass. (green arrow)

 

b9aec0db6d9615cbd3123c5ae80b7352.jpg

 

I decided to use some walnut veneer to cover the reddish wood because I didn't like the color. Also the hole is to large for the rudder to fit so I changed that as wel and made it smaller.

 

9fe370a3d3111a1027396df7c63ee2ce.jpg

 

a600944dde550faf7d3854d9b249f98e.jpg

 

Next step is constructing the hinges. The premade hinges are way to big for this type of ship. So I changed it and made them a bit less bulky.

 

4a7fb871cfd30635f849fad3b509979e.jpg

 

08d92ef61c0c24ad33b78deb5ee2e999.jpg

 

 

The pins are made of some 1,5mm brass roundbar.

440c1f0cf2ba37a92cd998ba5e383058.jpg

 

So, normaly I use Brass Black of Birchwood Casey to blacken my brass. This is packed into a container and stored for the move to another house. So a new bottle costs about 25 USD over here in The Netherlands. I had some black paint on the shelve so I used that in stead.

Continuing the assembly of the rudder...

4ddf27bdc39861bcd5edfe257d42a21c.jpg

 

 

And placed the rudder on the ship...

So far so good, until the next episode / update. I wish you a very nice day and thank you for reading and replying on my log. I highly appreciate it!

 

regards,
Pter
