Recommended Posts

Hello,

I am very pleased with your positive comments.

Here it continues in the report with a small update

 

Breeching rope for the 18 - pounder
The four 18 - pounders of La Créole have meantime been provided with the latest fittings. The next step is to prepare the breeching rope.
The breeching rope of 18 - pounder had a length of 8.20 m and a diameter of 55 mm.
The attachment of the breeching rope inboard on the bulwark was performed using eyebolts that penetrated the hull in the original and outboard with a screw (yellow arrow) were countered.

Thank you for the nice comment.

Here's another attempt to make the lashings with a brighter yarn. So it seems so that it works better with the brighter yarn.

Sheaves made with a lathe? How do keep from loosing them when you 'slice them off' the rod?

A good way Carl is to use a thin wire in the tailstock and as the parts part off the main bar they slide away from the chuck.

Hello,

thank you very much for your nice comments.

 

The hooks so far prepared are not optimized in shape.

The original hooks were forged from iron. They had thickened and dilutions. The shape is very special, as can be seen in the next picture.

Therefore, I have my previous manufacturing method refined.
On the next screen, the procedure is shown in 7 steps.

That second version does look like you can hang a ship's boat with it. The first one is really fragile ... It is an enormous improvement not to say the least!!!

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
