  1. My rigging is slow and time consuming, but it's almost over. I didn't like rigging, so I thought the cutter ship would end easily, but it's difficult.
  2. Thanks ErnieL and KingDavid and also thanks for the likes everyone. This is the first time the rigging a cutter ship. I attached it to the bottom of the mast by increasing the size of the small cleat in the kit. The cleat is an etched piece that is too thin to attach to the shroud rope. I dug and stuck a 1x1 tree into the kit's cleat to tie it securely to the rope. My rigging work is not completed one by one, but by adjusting the whole. The foot rope is not included in the drawing to prevent the sailors from fa
  3. Hello to all !! Thank you all for your likes and for visiting my build log. I attached a rope to the anchor. I want to express the weight of the rope... Belaying pin is coated with a highly viscous adhesive to give it roundness. Each block was dyed with a piece of paper with its corners rounded. I was not good at rigging and the production speed decreased. The main sail ring was made by immersing 1x1mm pear wood in water and forming a ring with heat.
  4. I added wale because it is flat and the tumble foam is loose. The metal parts of Lower Teakney and Lower Gallery no longer fit. In the assembly manual, the upper hull will be added after trimming. It is easier to make it all at once. The bottom of the ship was painted by mixing white and sail color at a ratio of 50%. Since attaching the upper deck makes it difficult to manufacture, complete all outfitting before attaching. The French ship noticed that the deck was curved according to the hull, but the plate attached to the kit co
  5. I painted it with a brush. In my case, paints with low hiding power, such as white and yellow, are painted with an airbrush, but since the range of painting is small, it is best to paint with a brush.
  6. This kit took 9 months to complete. I think the production time for one day was 3-4 hours. The hull was built in 3 months, and the mast and rigging took 9 months. Box wood is used for the upper part of the hull. The lower part of the hull uses wood from the kit. The thickness of the bulkhead was as thin as 3mm, so I couldn't continue to make the bottom from here. I cut and glued the remaining veneer board of the kit to the bulkhead . At this time, I knew only balsa wood as the filler. I didn't like balsa because the thumbtack doesn't wo
  7. Hello all, This kit was made two years ago. First, the image I love French freegate ships such as La Flore and La Renome beautifully. This kit is modified according to my taste. I think there are some mistakes. I will also write a record of the production.
  8. Hello to everybody! I don't have anything other than the instruction manual for the alert material, so I will refer to the works of Blue Ensign and Dubz. Thanks! After all, I remade iron hoop to secure bow sprit. The brass material was used by removing the etching parts of the kit and cutting the remaining frame part. It is a silver brazing using the easiest brazing wax. Bowsprit alignment is also my loose tolerance. 😉 And I dyed it lightly with cherry blossom dye. The stock of the anchor was remade. The bottom part of st
  9. Thanks Steven. ・Planking 0.5x3mm walnut is lined on the hull. Since the hull is small, I could attach it immediately. The walnut board is so thin that it can't be sanded much. I made a boat stand.
  10. I make a reduced version of 1/150 size the Golden Hind from Aeropicola, which I bought 40 years ago. I have reduced the size of the drawing to 1/3 size. Since it is a small size, it will be a solid model base. I made cross-sections at intervals of 13 mm from the drawing of the bulkhead. ( I only have 13mm of material ) It was cut out with a saw and adhered according to the cross section. The pattern was made from cardboard from the bulkhead drawing, and the sides of the hull were trimmed accordingly. The keel was made of 2mm thic
  11. Thank you captain hook. Finished the pump The metal fittings that fix the bowsprit to the keel are thin, but I'm planning on just winding the ring due to the mounting position and alignment. It is the alignment of the bow split, but it is swinging to the starboard direction, maybe because the bit was remade. Kit part of the bit was a soft white wood with a thickness of 3 mm, it is remade to a thickness of 4 mm I am going to adjust the position of the bit by moving it by 1-2 mm. Fix the cannon to the
  12. I will introduce the current production status image. Outfitting parts have not yet been glued to the hull. This is because the grating has not been made accurately. Some of the outfitting parts are remade. Windlass was painted well and remade from wood.It was quite difficult to sharpen an octagon with a slope. I used the barreled barrel as it was. I changed the handle of the rudder. The nail hole is stamped by cutting a 23G injection needle. The channel chain was a little long, so I cut it short. I also tried re
  13. Thanks all, It is a continuous image to the present I tried to glue the transom and give it a little curve, but it is almost straight.It seems to break easily with 1mm limewood and needs some reinforcement. I painted the side frieze decoration with gradation and pasted it. The deck is changed to Tanganyika wood without using the Boxwood of the kit, and Boxwood is used for other ships. I cut out the margin plank. Linseed oil was applied instead of painting. Clinker pasted, pear wood finished with linseed oil is the main reason I wante
  14. It is an image of 2 weeks from the start of production. I will paste it and I will adjust it in the wale part at the end. For the vertical adjustment of plankinng, refer to the line that divides the vertical distance into four and adjust the amount of overlapping trees. Adjusting the vertical direction gradually adjusts the overlapping amount and the clinker paste will be neatly arranged. I don't know if pear wood is a material that is easy to stick to or thanks to a triangular strip, but clinker sticking is easier and easier to stick than underlay. T
  15. Fast planking is completed within a week from the start of production. I think that it was possible to make it a little easier by cutting the convex part of the ladder post and attaching the ladder post after finishing the planking like the 2nd edition. I've made a small cutter for shipboard with clinker pasting, but the "ALERT" size thing is the first clinker pasting. So I cut out a triangular strip It is a pear material with a maximum thickness of 1 mm x 5. Adhesive area is larger than square strip, and the tolerance of overlapp
