  1. B.E. have a look at Shapeways maybe you find there some 3D printing parts. Eleanor looks great! Dirk
  2. Looking very good so I am very sorry to say the hinges were NOT copper (way to weak) but bronze. cheers Dirk
  3. Thanks Bob, JP and the likes. It is really a fun to build. Master Korabel did a great kit. If you get the full pear kit (so a pear deck...) then the only cons are the rigging thread and the flags. The rest is 100% fine to use. Bowlines and anchor done. Buliens a bit simplified (without these wood block like parts) Reefing thread on the mainsail still missing (I avoid that ... haha) and securing all knots with glue. Are there any comments on the alignment of the rigging? Do I have a showstopper in there?
  4. Copper looks great, I btw loved to do it ๐Ÿ™‚ Have in mind you need a third pattern for the last belt. cheers Dirk
  5. Thanks Rusty & the likes. very much appreciated ๐Ÿ™‚ Finish line is close ... ๐Ÿ™‚ cheers Dirk
  6. Hehe @Kurt Johnson but you are right it looks pretty cool with the sail laying. I might adopt it somehow ๐Ÿ™‚ cheers Dirk
  7. Working on the running rigging. I will show the mainsail reefed (even if the sail is a bit rough and a bit out of scale .. the usual problem). cheers Dirk
  8. Finished the shrouds. The result ๐Ÿ™‚ And some impressions with nice warm sunlight. Cheers Dirk
  9. Thanks Etsinko, Bob and the likes ๐Ÿ™‚ Yeah rigging is an important and imo major fun part for bringing the boat alive. I personally like the challenge to explore what is doneable in what scale and how to do it "macro proof" The rope I use is different as at the moment I use all my spares, some Morope, some from Chuck, some from my colleque Alexander. I will starting to do my own rope very soon. Motorized Serving Machine by Domanoff. Chucks is perfectly useable too! Very important for my style to do rigging is CA glu
  10. Thanks Eamonn, Bob, Jeff & the likes ๐Ÿ™‚ Glad you like it! Safteyline for the swords. Deadeyes for the Stay. Then I did the stays for the bowsprit. Macros Impressions Cheers Dirk
  11. Noooo, your little Ballahoo is great! I really like what you are doing with here! ๐Ÿ™‚ cheers Dirk
  12. Thanks Yves, Bob and the likes. Really appreciated ๐Ÿ™‚ More standing rigging. In between the I built the Case. Deadeyes and shrouds. Images Macros More Images Cheers Dirk
  13. Thanks a lot Bob, Richard, JP & the likes ๐Ÿ™‚ I continued with details and the oars. I spent a long time studying the plans for the rig and it seems that Master Korabel had used a dutch Jacht rig (with small changes like the boom etc.). Then I grabbed the book by Werner Jaeger (The Dutch yacht in the 17th century) and read it. Yepp the Rig is a Jacht Rig, so a few small adjustments and nice little details can be added. Then I rebuilt the mast again as things were not in line .. hmpf .... I always find it difficult to get e
  14. Thanks Dimitry (I wish I knew about the full pear version ...), Eamonn and the likes ๐Ÿ™‚ The kit includes all round timbers as dowels or as lasered (pear) square timbers to make them round in very good quality. Wish to Master Korabel: Make the lasered spars and oars longer so the could turned in a lathe ๐Ÿ™‚ But I make all my scratch new from pear. Cheers Dirk
  15. More progress. Mast made of pear. Redid the Windows (wanted to be consistent OOB ... but well the rig will be scratched again anyway ...), small stuff. And it gets ... dirty ๐Ÿ˜‰ The Russians like to work with bitumen, I wanted to try it, the deck was too light for me anyway ๐Ÿ˜› Cheers Dirk
  16. Thanks a lot for the nice comments and likes. I continued with the rudder. And some deck stuff. With this almost all work on the hull is done and it goes already again to the rig .... Cheers Dirk
  17. @JToma: The filler is simple wood filler, easy to sand @BobG: The planks are pre-spilled ๐Ÿ™‚ I use Danish Oil. Small things done ๐Ÿ™‚ Cheers Dirk
  18. The winch was built. A small miniature model made of umpteen parts. The result is really good. And it continued with various small parts. Now it was the turn of the side-swords. Beautiful pear wood, all laser cut and etched parts fitting exactly. That was fun ๐Ÿ™‚ This ship has an incredible amount of a Dutch poon. It
  19. Russian Deck Boat (imo a Poon with Jacht Rigging) St.Gabriel 1728 1:72 I needed something small and fast and the Master Korabel kits made me want to build them since a while. Just building, little thinking, little pimping (รคhm no, that does not work as we will see ....). Because not another cutter (the AVOS) for the time being, I just finished one and the St.Gabriel came into my mind. A small nice little boat ๐Ÿ™‚ History: St. Gabriel from 1728. Vitus Jonassen Bering was a Danish naval officer in Russian services. He led the First Kamchatka Expedition fr
