  1. 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?

  2. Thanks Etsinko, Bob and the likes 🙂

     

    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 glue, a fine tweezer and +4.00 China Glasses 😛

     

    I "harden" the rope then I can do a precise cut and glue the eye like a splice.

     

    841616265167e6f410267d6a1c61166e.jpg

     

    Then I use very fine thread to secure the "splice".

  3. Thanks a lot Bob, Richard, JP & the likes 🙂

     

    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 everything exactly in line and also in quarter or eighth intervals, I tried it with some thread as guide this time 🙂

    With the "barrel" but not the "lobster". I don't want to become Dutch 100%y but I like to show how much influence the Dutch had on the Russian shipbuilding at Peter's time.

    The two spars were also reworked and fitted with cleats according to Werner Jaeger.

    The sails are the Master Korabel sails, and I won't do much on them either. They are fine for kit sails! I dyed it with coffee and black tea 🙂

  4. Thanks Dimitry (I wish I knew about the full pear version ...), Eamonn and the likes 🙂

     

    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 🙂

     

    But I make all my scratch new from pear.

  6. The winch was built. A small miniature model made of umpteen parts. The result is really good.

  7. 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 (ähm 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 🙂


    28312f810ab3cf1d2ce0c8a551ca74e6.jpg


    History:

    St. Gabriel from 1728.


    Vitus Jonassen Bering was a Danish naval officer in Russian services. He led the First Kamchatka Expedition from 1728 to 1730 and from 1733 the Second Kamchatka Expedition, on which he died. Among other things, "Columbus the Tsar" proved that Asia and North America are not connected.

     

    In 1728 Bering had the 18-metre long sloop St. Gabriel built. From July 1728, he used this ship to explore the coast of Siberia in a northerly direction, discovering several islands and penetrating further and further into the Arctic Ocean without finding a land connection between Asia and America. On 26 August 1728, due to bad weather, Bering gave the command to turn around and turned back at 67°18' north latitude. Although he had already crossed the strait later named after him, he did not provide the final proof that there is no land connection between Asia and North America.

    Here you can see that color comes into play. You won't find much information about St.Gabriel in the net, I stumbled over a picture where this typical green color is shown and I want to try

    to add a little more individuality. Master Korabel kits have the ... haha ... "disadvantage" that they all like to look equally damn good. They are really one of the best kit designs I have ever had

    in my hands.
