HMS Victory by dafi - Heller - PLASTIC - To Victory and beyond ...

Recommended Posts

Funny enough the organisators eliminated all references upon Heller and plastic from the model description.

Honi soit qui mal y pense 😉

Here a shot down the rabbit hole when she was in France, displaying proudly her colors on Trafalgar day!

Despite all this  X-Mess-stress I found a small space for some advent tinkering 🙂

 

Started as usual in the smaller scale ...

... and then scratched the fitting Brodi-Stove for it by some scrap materials.

Then some trials ...

...for the BBQ-skewer holder and some brass nibbling ...

... bent ...

... and the skewer itself by filing a round brass into a pointed square section.

Some trials in soldering but finally it fitted :-).

The exhaust air propelled skewer drive was easy ...

... but fitting a 1 mm hole for the external axle bearing into a 1 mm brass profile needed the magical trick of flattening the material before drilling :-).

Then some handles and the handrail around and soon some paint could be applied.

 

I think I will go for a nice eloquent black 😉

Thank you Sirs, very indulgent 🙂

Others were not. "Too uneven", "roasting spit too thick" and "handles meant for giants"

So out the scalpel and flattening all uneven surfaces and corners, getting the soldering iron out and eliminating the oversized spit.

Filed a new squared and tapered spit onto some 0,5 mm brass wire.

Inserted a new smaller bearing into the spits driving wheel ...

... and mades some more ergonomic handles.

The result looks like this:

Hope that is fine now 😉

Hi Dafi,

 

Good colour match, if you want to go all the way you can have the colours mixed, in the thread ‘HMS Victory 2017 refit new-colours’ on this forum ‘michaelpsutton2’ quoted the Pantone colour references. I ordered the new black/grey and ochre for a test and the colour swatches are below. These are in an enamel low gloss.

 

What you find is that the ochre is very susceptible to light and shading conditions, going from the dark ochre/buff to the pink. The third picture has a coat of satin gloss.

We did not say that it is historically correct. It is just the way she is presented today 😇😇😇

I read that they have stripped back some of the paintwork and found traces of the different color - hence why they have re painted her in that color.

 

OC.
