Hi Kortes,

 

I guess you have seen the original bars on Sperwer?

that pattern is very distinctive, more than the rather basic pattern you have used.

Did you simplify on purpose?

Unfortunately, I couldn't think of any technology and make a 

door bars at my scale indetical to the original. Due to this i decided to play some tricks. I have to confess it's a deliberate deviation.

I didn't have enough skill.

magnificent ...

 

How did you attach the hinges, Kortes?

In order to install hinges, I had to use a non typical method. I hope the photos will explain everything.

I didn‘t like the original, too much Art Noveau, which is kind of out of place in this context. Kortes‘ solution is much more appropriate, I think.

but then you are no "Fries"

Might be, one never knows how the wheel turns ... Eastern Frysian is German right. I would expect them to be Baroque lovers, so Art Nouveau ... could not be part of your preferences ... but that's the German ancestry from my grandfather

Yikes, thats a detail that was made for photoetching!

Yes, You are right, this is a good photoetching, this is the only way to make this decor element. I understand this. But having judged my skills, and the lack of necessary equipment and materials, I came to the conclusion that I wouldn't be able to make this element properly. That is why I opted for abberation from the original. Probably I shouldn't have done it and leave the door without stained-glass window. Probably I should have done it that way.

Hi Kortes,

 

nicely done.

 

your decision to make a stained glass appearance is good: these ships showed the standing of its owner. Just plain glass would not do 

 

The other part is called mastkoker. (Not mast in mastkoker). A heavy piece. Attached to the ships bottom, as it       is the connection between hull and mast.

Hello Paul.

 

I used plastic film for calking. I used this method when i was building "Carolina". All that one needs for this can be found in any stationary shop.

Plastic bag for paper (they can be found in different colors and thickness) and two sides adhesive duct tape. I 

use the balck side of the plastic bag. I put the duct tape on plastic fim and cut  it in stripes according to the thickness of the batten, 

it can be made with a small margin, then I separate

protective paper from the strip and stick on the end of the batten, the allowances are cut off with the knife, - it's cutting off nicely. 

Here are several photos, maybe they can be of use to somebody. If you have any questions - it would be my pleasure to help.

My best regards, Alexander.
