  1. Now i have finish the planking of the gunports of the other side of the ship and stick together the two sides in the bow in the front. I paint it yellow also and i will paint it again after,if needed. Above the yellow area will fit black wooden strips,so the rest yellow area will be finished better .Now...is time for the hull planking (one layer...) In the center will fit 30-34 planks 5mm width and at bow and stern i must reduce the width to fit properly...isn't the easier job...Lets see about....I will keep you posted....
  2. Now i have finished the planking of the right side of the hull arount the gunports. I make the openings for the gunports and sanded when needed. All this is painted yellow accorting to the plans. Continue now to the left side of the hull....
  3. Thank you my friend Clare.Yes,San Ildefonso is a very beautiful ship and thats i have choose that. And also because the model is big....above one meter long....so all details are visible....and a lot of work for the builder...that's we like...right? The delay for the planks was from the coronavirus pandemia,so i hope that was once and i don't need to face that again...
  4. The first upper part of the hull is planked now with sapelli planks. Now i will sand it and paint this upper part of the hull, black. Continue after second sector of the hull,gunports...
  5. Now i finish the planking of the third deck. I put a plank inside the bulkheads along the deck and paint it red as you see in the photos. Why red? There is an historical explanation: Not to be seen the blood from wounded or killed salors in the fight,because they fight side by side with the enemy's ship... Now is time for the external planking...the most important job...
  6. I finish now the cabin. Three parts in a shape of Π ... from wood,metal and cooper parts like the rear part of cabin. A ladder with 7 steps made in front,lead to lower deck,as you see in the picture from beh ind. After i glue the third deck and i start now to plank it and also the remain bulkheads left and right.
  7. Now i have put the final bulkheads,so the shape of the ship is now visible. I cover the inside of the bulkheads with planks,opening the gun ports. I start the rear entrance of the cabin. As you see in the photo is a difficult part,to make all of this must glue wooden,brass,metal pieces together as seen in plans. Now i glue all this in the rear of the cabin... Now must make the rest part of the cabin...
  8. Now i have put the gun ports. Little attention to curve them at bow and stern. All this will be sanded so the second planking will be smooth and paint it in colors black and yellow. Back of every gun port there is a piece of wood paint with black color where the guns will be glued...
  9. I have finished the planking of the second deck and i put black dots i every plank change,like the nails. The absorblable wood sometimes make the dots not like circls,but like a line,so i scratch the excess ink..maybe there was a easier way for black dots...Anyway is done...also i put the beams and rods in the center of the deck,as described in the manual. So contune now futher...
  10. Finally,the planks are in my hands...so i will continue and finish the deck...soon new fotos...
  11. June is here but still OCCRE can't send me the planks. Quarantine is valid in Spain....so waiting....
  12. After one month still waiting for planks from OCCRE. The COVIT-19 stop my hobby...they wrote to me that when they can, they send me the planks...So waiting..
  13. Now i have place the 4 parts of the second deck,i glue them and start the planking in the ship,because i think i can cover better the gaps and the deck will be placed correctly. But as you see in the pictures,i stopped in the half of the deck...because the planks 1X3 mm are finished...!!! I havn't damage any of them,i use every sinlge of them,but...isn't enough. I wrote to OCCRE and they answer that they will send me 60 planks more....Good service from OCCRE but why? The two members here SJORS and IOANNIZ who make the same ship they don't wrote something. Anyway,i must wait now the new planks
  14. Hello,i build now this kit of OCCRE San Ildefonso.I make now the deck planking. I am in the second deck,but the planks 1mmX3mmX700mm isn't enough for all decks...i need more planks...is that happent in your ship IoannisZ ?

  15. yes you are right,but the journey is important not the destination,so to make that, is my hobby even will cover from the second deck...i will know that i make it all...
