  1. Druxey, you're right. But no one would say how much time these details will take. I continue with the roof of the galley. Due to the small space, I simplified the attachment of the roof a bit (this detail will not be very visible in the final).
  2. Thank you guys for all nice comments and likes. A few details added to the galley.
  3. To Jorge Diaz O - I used the colored linseed oil with wax. To allanyed - For me, saving time won over saving money . Galley.
  4. Completing the blocks, "special" blocks will be made later.
  5. I started making blocks. Unlike Pandora, where the blocks were made using home-made milling bits, the blocks are now completely made using a CNC milling machine. The remaining photos will be in a few days.
  6. Just a few details today - staghorns, ringbolts, breeching ropes.
  7. Completion of gun-carriages, now all that remains is to attach the cannon barrel.
  8. To Dowmer - all cannons are made by hands (it means with no CNC feature or replicator) Preparation of parts for the production of gun-carriages.
  9. Making of guns, it remains to complete the rear of the guns.
  10. To claybaker and garyshipwright - These milling cutters are manufactured by a number of manufacturers in the world, so it does not matter which manufacturer you choose. There are several of these manufacturers on aliexpress. I myself chose the "Chinese variant" because it is significantly cheaper and will do the same service as more expensive milling cutters. Installation of quarterdeck deck beams.
  11. To G. Delacroix - thanks for the info, I made the new one items with no wedges To garyshipwright - I am using "10 Degree 0.1mm Tip Carbide CNC Bits Flat Bottom Milling Cutter V Shape" (https://www.aliexpress.com/item/852725456.html) for most of CNC 3D carvings. Question about tutorial - I am so sorry, making a video tutorial would be too time consuming and my knowledge of English is minimal. I continue with the assembly of the capstans.
  12. Thank you guys for all likes and comments. I understand that for some people, the use of CNC machines is a somewhat controversial topic. On the other hand, I remember how I started modeling about 40 years ago with a hand saw and a set of files. Today, no one dares to use various electrical devices that make it easier for us modelers to work. From this point of view, the CNC machine is just another evolutionary step. To garyshipwright: I am using VCarve Desktop. I am starting work on main capstan parts - some pictures from production.
  13. To PeteB: I used the black translucent paper for the caulking. The last stem decorations are added. All carvings are made with CNC milling maschine with small manual corrections.
  14. To Hubac´s Historian - Thanks for compliment. I still have some rest at the stern - decorations.
  15. Thank you Alex M, I have to say I learned many things from you. Forecastle and quarter deck beams preparation - hatchway openings, capstan steps and mast wedges.
  16. Thank you guys for all likes and nice comments. The next task on the gundeck were trunks (or chests?).
  17. Thank you guys🙂. Completion of the interior of the cabins.
  18. To the learner - The basis is a wooden plate into which depressions are milled and holes for nails are drilled. A cotton pad (a make-up cotton pad that I borrowed from my wife) is glued to the plate prepared in this way. Push the cotton into the recess with the end of the brush nozzle. Glue any suitable cloth and push the material into the recess again. Finally, thread the nails with small heads through the cloth and cotton into the holes in the wooden board, glue and cut. Glue the ends of the fabric over the edges of the wooden board and you're done. Inner bulkheads - continuation part t
