I once set out to paint every wild natural wild lovebird species and there natural mutations. Fot example the white bengal tiger is a natural mutation of the common bengal tiger. Each of my paintings contained to every detail 2 or 3 views of the normal natural coloured lovebird and up to 3 natural mutation colours types..depending on the species of the Lovebird onto each of the paitings. Each and every lovebird on all of the 7 paintings were painted to there correct sizes....the species are different in size.... I did not paint man made lovebird mutations or birds ando nly wild bird and types
I then went on to paint 3 lears Macaws to there actual size...huge sizes on canvas.... i visited and photograpthed every bird that i have ever painted. At 11 years old I build my first book shelf... 5 shelves tall it was taller than me.. aged 11
Suddenly about 3 months ago through a few different happenings i have decided I would like to build model sailing ships..
I borrowed two of the Harold Underhill books from the library... Planks on Frames vol 1 and vol 2
I have been reading them for 4 weeks now and i understand them very well. I understand inches very well. So I already have sesoned wood castilo beeach pear... 18 months old timber
My new book arrived Brig of War Irene... it has 2 separate sheets..the Irene Plans ..they are the same ship plans as the irene ship plans that are in the book.
I have realised. it took me quite some hours of reading...like most of yesterday.. that i understand E W Petrejus's Book
On page 41 ..showing Irene/ship drawing where in the open hull where the masts go through the decks too the bottom of the ship..
I have not found anywehere in the book what the angles of those masts would be... the foremast can not be 90 degrees ... there must be a slight angle on this foremast and the mainmast is clearly at an angle..
So i would like to know what would those angles be ??? Does anyone know ?
Also on page 171 the full sizes of the masts are given and shown in drawings.. I can only guess that some of the bottom of these masts must go into the hull to the hulls bottom of the ship.. making the visable length part of these masts shorter...
The writer of this book has the Hull / plans in inches and the other built parts areas..masts so forth in cm
The more i am reading this book the more i see the parts /sections of this book fitting togeather..
Even i can understand the data given...on the data pages at the back of the book / pages
But i have not found those mast angles ???
Can anyone advise me on these mast angles?
