  1. So it seems, you finally managed to lure me out of my hiding on the lower deck, and get me to start a build log... While I have the CAF Enterprise waiting to be built, I think the Granado, might be a smaller "test case". I started assembling the first frame, and already have a first question, on the lower timbers there are bevelling marks in the joint area. James writes, that the joints should be perpendicular to the frames, so it is safe to ignore these marks? Jan
  2. Hi folks I have just purchased the Santisima Trinidad Section kit from OcCre and have decided to share its build with you. All comments and/or suggestions are greatly appreciated as hopefully they will help make me a better builder. There were only two problems with the kit when it arrived and they were: Poor quality (rough finish and holes drilled in all angles) of the small (4mm) blocks and pulleys and 3 of the 6 half frames were warped. As for the blocks and pulleys, it may be that I am a bit fussy, but there are better quality versions available and I personally expect kits that cost this much to have that higher level of quality. All of the other parts looked to be great so I am not expecting any problems there. In case some of you are wondering what you get, I have enclosed photos of the whole kit so you can get a good idea of what you will be receiving should you purchase the kit. Daryl
  3. Oops! Just realised I had to start the build log to obtain the plans. So here it is. First steps at the cross-section. Cutting the lengths was really easy. The only problem was defining the dimensions as I much prefer to work from CAD and in metric -- and I don't know the original dimensions of the real timbers. So I diligently took the plans into TurboCAD and traced them. The difficulty, of course, is defining which part of the thickness of the lines to take as reference since the drawn lines are 0.38mm wide. This resulted in my having a variance of between 0.1 and 0.2mm between the different views of the keel, keelson and false keel. In the end I just decided on a particular width which seemed closest (e.g. 3.2mm for the false keel) since I reckoned the differences to be so small as not to be worth fussing about. All the same, it might be an idea for beginners like myself to have the original dimensions of the timbers shown on the plans so we can just draw them in CAD. As a result, I also thought I'd wait to see the plans in their entirety before settling on a particular set of measurements for the purposes of 3D modelling in CAD, so I can use the CAD drawings to think about the whole process. As to the rabbet, I toyed with the idea of cutting a scraper, but found that one of my milling pieces fit the profile exactly. So this did not prove a difficulty -- although I am fully aware that longer sections of keel would demand more complex curves and angles. So the following picture shows the progress thus far, and I request access to the plans if that's ok. I'm still working on the last stages of my Sherbourne (anchors and swivel guns) but want to see the Triton plans as soon as possible so that I can work out what I need and how I'll be doing it. Thanks Tony
  4. Hi I am a new member that would like to share some photos of an vintage kit I recently purchased. It is a mid ship cross-section of the Swedish warship Vasa, by the company Igra from the Czech republic. It is 1:60 scale. Time has bleached the paper flags and the decals are probably unusable. The original plywood sheets are warped and are not laser cut, old school here. I plan to use real wood in place of the plywood sheets, which are great to have as a reference. I like this model because of the large scale which should help my inexperienced fingers. By being a cross-section I can avoid planking the bow and stern which I have failed to succeed with on a previous attempt. Unfortunately the original Czech instructions with images are missing, so if anyone has a copy to share I would appreciate to hear from you. Cheers.
  5. Here's the pics for my Triton Build. First up was test build of one of the cannon done in 1:24th
  6. This is a older kit picked up from a estate - someone with a large stash of model ship kits. I bought 2 of the last 3 available - I didn’t need the wood for a scratch build Essex so I only purchased the 2 kits. I gather Aeropiccola has been out of the model ship kit business for many years but I can't be sure of the date of the kit. The plans indicate they were published in 1984. Since this an old kit I'll show the contents. I am quite satisfied with the quality of the parts. The plans consist of 2 sheets of detail images and construction expansions. The instructions are very brief but I think the plans are going to guide the build quite well.
  7. Build underway Hi, you may well have followed the link from my temporarily suspended build http://modelshipworld.com/index.php/topic/11039-hms-bounty-by-bryanc-artesania-latina-scale-148/ and you'll see the Bounty languishing in the background in the photos below. That build will continue shortly, and probably during breaks form this new build of the HMS Victory Bow Cross Section.
  8. I built the model more than 20 years ago, when I was a student. 2 years ago, while I was clean the dust, the model wrecked. So I decided to restart again. At the beginnig I took the old plan and I started the construction. But I decided to modify the plan and extend the model of 2 bulkheads toward aft. I bought AOTS Convay ed. and I studied the plan. So the result is a mix, no more a kit model, but not just a scratch model. here the pictures: http://www.flickr.com/photos/fabiusb/sets/72157632793255640/
  9. Here goes my Victory cross section repost on MSW 2.0!! ---------------------- Hello Everyone, I have been a long time visitor to the MSW forums and I have marveled at the craftsmanship and attention to detail displayed in so many of your projects. Now it’s time to share my first build with you. I’ve started small, with a 1:98 scale HMS Victory cross section kit by Corel. While I find the kit to be excellent, it is a simplified model, so I’ll be modifying it to include more detail. As my guides I’ll be using McKay’s and Longridge’s books, hundreds of internet photographs, as well as all of the great information on MSW. I’ve also found the following website very helpful, as it includes a well-reasoned list of modifications to make the kit more accurate: http://www.mountainhaven.com/VictoryXCP/index.html My goal isn’t to follow this list precisely (for example, I won’t me modifying the deck framing to be more accurate), but I will be adding major details such as the step, chain pumps, shot lockers, elm tree pumps, hold well, pump room, and other details. I’m a few months into the project, so it will take me a little while to catch up here. Like many of you, I’ve also removed and reworked/improved some of my earlier modifications to add more detail, so expect some changes along the way. Until the next post, enjoy the “unboxing” photos. E&T My workspace and the kit: The unboxing: Gluing a photocopied plan to a board to create a jig: The finished jig for aligning the frame: Keel, keelson, deck planking, shot locker and pump well installed. Unfortunately I forgot to take a picture of the step, but you’ll see more of that later. The pump well and locker are made from balsa, with a light oak stain. The hold platforms prior to installation: Parts fabricated for installation, including the chain and elm tree pump shafts and the chain pump casings. The shafts will be fitted inside the hold well and pump room and will extend from the hold to the lower deck (gun deck), where the chain pump casings and starboard elm tree pump will be installed. I’ve decided not to paint the model, but to use natural oiled or stained finishes. Any metal fittings will be made from brass or copper. Here, iron fittings are replaced with copper (including barrel hoops). So far, I like the look. Here you can see the framing for the orlop deck being glued, with the fabricated pump room in the background waiting to be installed.
  10. Hi Folks, after 9 months I´m back at service and I open my Shipyard again........ I had some health problems but everything is good and I want to show you my new project.....! The HMS Victory Cross-Section, it shows you the part from the mainmast. I change some things as in the kit. At first I use pearwood 2x5mm and inside 1,5x4mm stripes and second I build light inside the ship. But look, here are the first pictures:
