Source : wikipedia The model More then 45 years ago, the Airfix Golden Hind on 1/144 scale was the very first scale model I ever built. This model now wil by a plank on frame model. And I can only do my best to make it as realistic as possible. There are no plans, no drawings and no paintings of the real ship. I just find a few etchings of about 1600 - 1620 on the internet and they are both different. On the internet there are plans . They are of Aeropiccola, an Italian company that no longer exists. I think the scale is abouth 1/50 http://www.john-tom.com/SailBoatPlans/GoldenHind/golden_hindSm.pdf They looked great in the beginning.But the more I look at them, the less good they begin look ... It seems as if the hull is too wide and the shape of the frames dont match the shape from those of Matthew Baker (A well-known shipbuilder from this period) But : It looks like nobody knows If this ship was a real "race galleon" or just an armed merchantman (privateer). Before we start Were the guns placed below dek or on the dek? I believe that all the guns were lined up below deck. And not on the deck like with most Golden Hind models. Guns on the deck may cause an unstable ship . And on the models there is not enough room to absorb the recoil of the guns and too reload them. So Mi first step is to try to build a hull with: A shape that has enough space to absorb the recoil of guns. But is not too wide Has place for 14 cannons below deck Has 2 light guns in the forecastle. Has 4 light cannons in the rear castle. Apparently it looks if there is only one ship wreck from this period is found. Called "the Princess Channel wreck” or “the Gresham ship” In this period many newly built ships were so unstable that the hull had to be adjusted immediately. With the aid of Girdling: (making the hull wider at the water line). Or furring ( make the hull below the waterline wider). Actual evidence of this was found in the Gresham ship. http://www.maritimearchaeology.dk/downloads/Furring%20in%20light%20of%2016th%20century%20ship%20design_web.pdf http://www.maritimearchaeology.dk/downloads/Full%20thesis%20bates.pdf Even on the replica of the Golden Hind the hull is widened at the waterline. I use plywood, ramin ( the pieces of ramin wood are old leftovers from construction works in our house 20 years ago) an cherry wood (from a tree that came from the garden) And the keel of the Golden Hind was laid on a sunny day the 10th of september.
  2. Hello, this is my galleon ship construction. It is my second ship build. I will share photos of the build, hope you will like. Friesland The highly ornate Friesland dates from about 1663, when she was launched as part of the fleet of the "Seven Provinces" of the Netherlands. As part of the allied Aglo-French fleet, she took part in the Battle of Solobay in 1672. Mamoli's double plank-on-bulkhead kit, based on reliable Dutch documentation, features 80 turned brass cannon and over 50 gilded metal ornaments. The model is a magnificent replica, complete with authentic deck detail. Cast zinc frames ensure proper squaring and alignment of gun ports, while remaining hidden from view. Silk-screened flags and cotton rigging line reflect the rig plan of the original. Thirteen sheets of plans and step-by-step instructions allow you to build an extraordinary showpiece. Advanced Level Mamoli Kit No. MV24 Length 31"/Height 28"/Scale 1:75 Few photos of the box and inside the box.
  3. My previous construction of a kit.. ..is coming to an end, so it's time to start with a new one... Another construction I'm starting is scratch build, I've decided for a ship from the 16th century, a galleon, which I always liked, specifically 1597 Roter Lowe.. I've had the 1:60 plan at home for many years, it's a copy of a well-known German plan.. The scale is close to fifty, still very detailed and mainly the ship hasn't got much decoration, which I do not dare make yet. I'm leaving 3D aside, I hope paper plans will do.. Right from the first comparison of copies of the two side elevations, I came across different front ligament shapes.. That's also why I decided to create a cardboard half of the hull and check the crossing of the ribs, and then do the plywood frame..
  4. Hi all. Here are some pics of my first model ship build and middle section. I finished this model in 2013 I think the scale is about 1:50
  5. Hi everyone! This is my next build after finishing The Mayflower, which you can see in the Gallery here. I started this build already a while ago, back in 2012. Life circumstances caused me to give it a break in an early stage. However, with my life in order (more or less) and no other project going on (I put my Renommee idea on hold for now and next in line is then anyway the Hollandsee Zweedekker). The ship is the replica of a Spanish treasure galleon, ´The Neptune´ for the 1984 movie "Pirates" by Roman Polanski. This built is an excursion into LED lights and model clay sculpturing. Ever since I saw this replica on the internet, I always wanted to build it, mainly due to the rich decoration of the stern. I have never really tried to sculpture such details from the clay, my only experience with it being the deadeyes, catheads and a small shipwright when I made the Mayflower. But you'll never know if you are good at something (or not) if you do not try! So here I go... Another experiment in this built is the LED lights, that flicker like candles. If I am not mistaken, dantist905's Soleil Royale was the first model I've seen with LEDs like that. So here I try to make my own version of it, partly successful so far. Since this is a fictive ship, a prop (theatrical property), it is not historically accurate and gives me a bit of creative space... But the drawback of it is that I have no plans and background on this ship so I have to make it up, including the history of the ship. I created a story around this ship over at papermodelers.com but it develops based on the comments there and what happens during the build. Without previous knowledge I set the construction of my version into 1670 and later I saw a plate from the interior of the replica that has the fictive date of 1672 on it, so I was not that far away with my interpretation of the stem and stern... The only other model of this replica I know of was beautifully made by a Russian modeler named Vitaly Maslov. My version is not an exact 1:1 copy of the replica that is now in the port of Genoa in Italy, but I try to make some research on Spanish galleons of that era and whatever does not fit into the historical facts, becomes part of my fictive story. Also, my version is made again from card and paper mainly. Now I do not know if you guys here would be interested in the fictive story. I could only copy it here from the papermodelers-forum as it kind of develops there. So far I managed to set up all the LEDs in the structure, the main deck, and the underwater hull card-layer. Work is progressing slowly but steady and here are some pictures from the progress so far. Please let me know if you'd be interested in the story "...anno dei 1669...The shipwright Radék de la Sol de la Santa Cruz de Brazíl" and I can update it here. If not, I'll just post here my research results and the progress of the build. So much for now. Rgds, Radek
  6. *** EDIT *** Shouts of joy as I reveal that I've found the pics from this build. Reconstruction is now possible. *** /EDIT *** Hello and welcome to my first build log. It will be a somewhat unusual one. I started this project during the rainy summer of last year, to have something to do while the rain was turning the lawn into something resembling a WW1 trench system. It's a toy ship with a 17th century-ish feel to it. I'm calling it a toy ship due to the fact that it's meant to actually set sail - it will patrol a nearby pond. I like my ships being able to float. Somehow it just feels a bit perverse to build a ship that can't actually survive contact with water ... What lucky kid will get to sail her, I hear you ask? Why, me, of course. The main thing that will make this log a bit unusual is the fact that I'm buliding her at our summer place, and I'm only there for a few weeks during the summer. Therefore, anyone following this will have a long wait ahead for the next update. Aplogies for that. Well, here goes.
  7. I have been working on the model for quite some time, but before there was no certainty that it would be possible to finish the job. The project is not tied to a specific historical ship and is a collective image of a transitional vessel between the beginning and the galleon of the late 16th century, which was widely used at that time in the Mediterranean basin.
  8. all, My Halve Maen build was already on hold, but during our move to a new house in November 2015, she got lost because one of our friends put her box on the pavement instead of in our car. After that the enthusiasm to build was completely gone. I spent last year enjoying my other hobbies. But, as a Dutch saying goes: 'Blood is thicker than water' and the urge to build another ship came back. So, May I present to you the Spanish Galleon Nuestra Señora del Pilar De Zaragoza (Our lady of the pillar of Zaragoza), a Spanish Treasure Galleon. Measurements Length: 1110 mm Height: 970 mm Width: 520 mm History During the 17th and 18th centuries Spanish galleons served the Spanish crown as merchantmen and warships. Many of them sailed between Acapulco and Manila, transporting South American silver to the Philippines and exotic goods from Asia to Mexico, from where the treasures were sent back to Spain. Commisioned in 1731 and launched in 1733, Nuestra Señora del Pilar de Zaragoza (Our Lady of the Pillar of Zaragoza) was one of these Manila Galleons built of the finest Philippine wood, she was 112 feet on deck and displaced 1,000 tons. A 4th rate of the Cavogonda class, she was fitted with 50 cannon, two stern chasers and six swivel guns. She carried a crew of 385 men. For twenty years she sailed the route from Mexico to Manila and in 1750 underwent a complete refit in the Port of Cavite. In 1750, on her last voyage, she set sail from Manila bound for Acapulco. Despite being overloaded, and contrary to the opinion of both pilots and Master, her Captain insisted on weighing anchor at the beginning of September. En route for the Mariana Islands, in the Pacific, they began to have difficulties after sailing into a heavy storm, and she sank taking all of her crew down with her. Frames dry fit. Frames glued in place. Reinforcing pieces not glued yet. Frames glued in place. Last three frames fitted and glued. Reinforcing pieces glued.

  9. Hi @ all! I would like to present here my ongoing project. It is the Mayflower from 1620 after the plans of Waldemar Nowy (Danzig, Poland) 1975: "Historic Sailship MAYFLOWER" (based on the Mayflower II) I started this build about in November 2010. I had several breaks during the build due to my private situation. At the moment I work on the cannons and the masts. Here are some pictures of my progress so far. I would also like to post some of my techniques I used as soon as time allows me to. Rgds, Radek
