  1. Busy week, not much progress, but managed to work on the bulwarks: This time, I managed to actually bend them correctly on the first try ๐Ÿ™‚ . Made a sketch of the bow to ensure the curvature would match. Still looking for a better way, as this is not 100% accurate. Nevertheless, after 36 hours of drying (busy days), they were ready to be installed: Preparation really paid off here, after about 2 hours, both them were fixed: Letting the glue dry out now, then it's on to fairing the hull and planking. Longest bulkhead is 108
  2. Hi, thnx for looking in! Well, the object of the second model was to try things I didn't get to do with Terror, and the cannons are a part of that, so gunports will be open. Still trying to figure out how to template the opening angle so they all align, but that's still far away. I sanded down the main deck, a lot of elbow grease, but this is where we are now: There's improvement, but the difference is still visible in some areas. I have no experience with other brands, is this an issue they tackle better than Occre?
  3. Hi all, back from relaxing holidays, opened up the shipyard to finalise the deck planking. Glued the gud deck halves in place first: And then proceeded with the crossbeams to support the main deck: Then installed the sidewalls that will hold the gun mounts for the hidden cannons. Instructions called for secure fit as to allow for drilling, so I added some nails to ensure the strips do not move: Then started on second planking, and I made my first blunder: after drawing the heartline correctly, proceeded with plank
  4. Hi there, mind this is not an instruction to cut, but to drill a 1,5mm hole in order to fit the rudder beam. Just so you know...
  5. Looking good Geowolf, I had the same issue with one of my planks on the bow, followed Keith's advice, and after painting the hull nothing was visible, so don't worry, it can be corrected ๐Ÿ™‚
  6. Looking great Broden ๐Ÿ™‚ I staggered as much as possible, but more for sturdiness than aesthetics, as the first planking wil lbe covered anyway. I worked first top down for the top planks, as they're all pretty straightforward. Then I moved to the garboard and worked my way up, meeting in the middle. If you ant, there's more info on my build log (link in the sig below), but as this was my first build, I recommend you check other logs as well. Good luck!
  7. I'm in awe as to how your deadeyes look, puts my brass bending efforts to shame ๐Ÿ™‚ . Looking forward to how you're going to solve the channels!
  8. Hi all, thx for checking in. Some progress during heatwave days, all the bulkheads are glued, and I proceeded to the planking of the lower deck (gun deck?) The plans called for a planking scheme half way, and pencil the edges in, but from experience with my previous build I decided to plank with individual planks. Patience is a virtue ๐Ÿ™‚ didn't really like the scheme, saw some examples in here of other schemes and got inspired. As the plans did not give a length for the individual planks, I extrapolated from my Terror plans, where the planks were 60mm (1/75th scale). So on 1/8
  9. Shameless self-promotion: I started on a new project, Frigate Diana by Occre. If you're interested, here's the link to the Diana Build Log.
  10. To quote one of my favourite movies:"Here we go again.." After building HMS Terror, I was completely hooked, and as Corona is still roaming the streets, I managed to get my hands on Frigate Diana, also by Occre. Here's some history I picked from the Occre site: "The frigate Diana was launched on the 10th of March 1792. It formed part of the series of frigates known as "Mahonesas", as they had been built in the city of Mahรณn.Thanks to its design, it could sail faster than its predecessors. It took part in the war against France along the Catalan coast although, during the war of Ind
  11. Hi all, probably more of an admin question but: how do I add the word "FINISHED" to the title of this build log? Or can I only claim this after the stand has been painted? ๐Ÿ˜‰
