Hi Janos .

The tool I have the most common . I use like this . The smallest self-made cutters . They resharpen of sewing needles . They became good shape and very fit. They are very easy to alter.

Electric carving tool when not use.  I tried it with carving figurines lady for " Druid ". Even good at. But it is very dangerous. You can spoil , so then they stopped working. I do not know how to properly called in English , in Russian it is called BOR . like this will be clearer :

They tried. Now sometimes use them too , but manually. Here it is:

The smallest veins and lines are very easy to do .

 

Leo does not polished . There's only work with knives and chisels . And the first job with the " Druid " polished , but not paper, and this . This conventional sawing and bafiki polish. They loved me . There are solid , there are soft . My wife works in a nail service . Once asked her to try and loved it. Use them not only in the thread , but also in other work with the model.

Hi Nigel .

Happy if it is useful . In Russia we have a cartoon of Baron Munchausen . This character is always saying, " Desperate situations do not happen! "

If this case does not help anyone to despair , I will be very happy

Good afternoon, everybody. 

I finished another small order. This is the most difficult job, that I had. But very interesting. I very much enjoyed the thread. 

This figure rooster for the French frigate «Le Francois». 

That's how this figure looks in the drawings.

yeah, it was hard work. Everything is very subtle. And legs and wings. At this time, there were no accidents, nothing had to be restored as a lion. I tried. Well, it all worked out.

I would advise the client not to fit it until the end of the build!! :D All that work and it gets caught whilst doing the rigging would be devastating.

These pieces are exquisite. The detail is amazing. You do beautiful work. You can start doing custom work for people who model but don't know how to carve.

Я не советовал бы клиент не вписать его до конца, чтобы строить! :DВсе, что работа, и она попадает в то время как делать фальсификации будет иметь разрушительные последствия.

 

С наилучшими пожеланиями Найджел

 

I do not know if I've translated and understood your words. If I wrote an answer wrong, I apologize. 
Master, for which I made ​​this thread young. He is 21 year. But he was already an experienced master and I'm sure he knows how to do the installation. Thanks for your advice, I will tell him. 
I do not know whether his model masts and rigging. Later try to show a photo with his model. I really like his ship model.

Congratulations, Alexander, beautiful work!

What material did you use. Is the finish the usual tung oil? And what is the size of the rooster?

Janos

Thank you, Janos. 
Praise from a master like you means a lot to me. 
Tree for this work is an apple tree, but it was blank much darker than the one from which I used to do a lion. 
Oil covered. Here, too, tung. 
Dimensions I will show later. I want to show the photos while working, there will be and the views from the ruler.

Hello, Mark. 
Thank you for your kind words. 
I really like to do carving. . Now I do a thread on order. This rooster and a lion made ​​for other artists. To order. Leo ordered the master of Russia, and this figure for the master  in Ukraine. 
If you need something to cut, I'll be glad to help. However, never send parcels to Europe or even further and do not know how it is done correctly. But if the need arises, then all I can learn.

Fabulous to see the work in progress pictures B) I was aware that you produce carvings to order for various master modelers,but it was not my place to say anything ;) I can see a lot of sense in that specialist tasks are given to certain individuals.With following the shipmodels forum I realise that several modelers have certain specialties and offer their services to other modelers.

Once again, I apologize in advance if poorly understood the meaning of your words. I do not try to do some secrets contrary openly show and what happened and how it was done . I also learned a lot through different forums on ship modeling . And I very grateful masters who opened their secrets and technology. I, too, try to do the same.
From the photos immovably that thread have something complex or not secret . Simple tools . Yes , I use the machines in the first stage , which I have. But even without them , too, can do . They are not the main thing in the thread ! And any questions I will answer honestly and also show all the techniques that I use. Already talked about some of the tricks that help me in the work , how you can fix your mistakes . I will reveal a little secret: in this order rooster figure was not the only thing I did . There was another thread . On it I will talk about later . There also were problems , and small openings . Oh , I also tell them . Therefore , if anyone have a desire to try it for yourself , I 'm just glad this . This is very interesting !
When I'm doing with my model , I try to learn to different technologies . I can not everything. I still have to learn how to weave ropes for rigging. I have not tried to do a good casting. Always want to learn to do yourself.
But if someone I can be useful , I am ready to make a thread for others. I enjoy watching and thread

Great work.  I Like the way you remove the excess wood before you start the shaping process.  You have a more delicate touch than I.

I think you may have miss understood my post Alexander.The Russian English translator is not the best.I really don't know what it must have said at the other end :huh: I meant it was your choice to say who you produce these carvings for.I know you are posting on here to show how you do it and I am sure I speak for everyone when I say we are very grateful for you doing this.

Kind Regards

Here was the difficulty. Part thickness only 2.8 mm, and the thread must be on both sides. Therefore, in areas of thinning turned very small thickness. And item several times I broke during operation.

I had to find a way out of the problem. Did so: the item consists of two halves. They became even thinner, but now they can be glued drops of glue on the bar and do as a bas-relief carving. And then glue it all together.
Easy! Maybe someone is handy.

Alex

This is the problem when a material is cherry or similar - it breaks easily in small cross sectional areas. European Boxwood would cope with this with no problem, although the South American Boxwood (Costello) would probably brake the same way. Of course you can't go for the same material every time because of the necessary colour contrast, so you have to deal with the consequences. 

I sometimes manage to repair the breakage with a small wooden dowel and carpenter glue, but even with the most careful repair would leave a small break line visible (as I have now on the forearm of my top-left-man's hand on the Britannia carving :angry: ). If this is not acceptable, there is no other way just to start again. I went too far with the figure, so I just left it - and it is visible  :o

Your scroll carving is as excellent as the in-the-round rooster!

Janos

Thank you very much for your advice , Janos .
With boxwood I never worked . I even did not keep his hands before. We have this tree is not often seen . Belgorod city and a small wood for carving here is not for sale . Yesterday I received a parcel from a friend in Moscow. He gave me a gift . Little wood for carving . And there were two bars of boxwood . They are not large, only for small figurines . But I am very happy that I met with this tree . One day I 'll cut something out of it .
 
Thanks for the advice about repairs. I, too, there are moments when I decide what can be repaired . For example with a lion and was sent when a mistake on the board .At this time, not repair for several reasons.
1  very thin dimensions , and still had to cut a lot ahead. Therefore, the place of breakage is likely again be broken. I also realized that can easily go wrong , and in other places.
2 -  You have probably noticed that the first attempt I made with butter. As I have already used . Oil helps with thread , I have already written . But now it spoils the contrary , because the details are not oiled glue well . If you look at the pictures with thread on one half , you'll notice that this time I did not use oil. Covered only at the end where the two halves are glued together, and processed.
Now for me to have the experience and that different situations need different approach to work .

Excellent work Alexander B) Producing the carving in two halves makes an awful lot of sense when the relief work is double sided.

Last entry for the cockerel. Customer sent photos, which already figure on the model. So I decided to show them to you. This model is not finished yet and its final form has changed. Somewhere added trim. But much can be estimated now.
