Recommended Posts

Hi Paul,

thanks for the positive comment,

and thanks to the others for the LIKES.

 

The size of the blocks depends on the diameter of the rope, as stated by J. Boudriot.

The production of the blocks, I do the following

The ropes for the hammock cranes have to be tensioned. I did that with tiny thimbles Ø 1,1 mm and lashings.

 

The thimbles on the next image have the following diameter from left to right:

Ø 1,1 mm
Ø 2,2 mm

Ø 2,6 mm

The first attempts with seizings are not very nice.
With a "fake splice" it looks better?DSC07531_wett.jpg.e3f503e711caf3297b37b849deabd403.jpg

My work on La Belle have been on the back burner for a few years now, but reading your regular updates on La Créole is convincing me I have to make some time for this hobby again. Put work aside and meditate over ship construction is good for the soul.

 

Love your craftsmanship!!

I have never replied to this thread but have been following along for quite a while.

Your work is just crazy perfection.  A beautiful masterpiece.  I really hope this will be placed somewhere that it will get the attention that it deserves. 

I know this log is a real treat for me....

Thanks for letting us follow along..

Hi Steve and Hans Christian,

thank you for your extremely nice comments.

That does very well and motivates enormously.
And I would like to thank all the others for the many LIKES.


With a small detail it continues here.
The catblock has a very large hook so that the anchor can be fished.

Hello friends,
thanks a lot for the nice comments and the LIKES.

On my rope walk I made the shrouds as hawser laid rope.

DSC07938.thumb.jpg.a7a77c99345e12c08d26b7a785b3a57e.jpg
The dimensions for the shrouds I take from Information from the monograph by J. Bourdriot and made a list.

f358t643p166581n5_tQrKuMkD.jpg.02e312c8572c086419dd3f46105accd7.jpg


The first shrouds on the main mast are set.
It is important that the distance between the dead eyes is usually 2 x distance dead eyes.

Hello,

many thanks to you all for the LIKES.

 

Currently I am still working on the shrouds of the mainmast.

For this I show some pictures serving the shrouds and attaching of the dead eyes.

Furthermore, you can see a comparsion with an original seizing

Hello,

many thanks for the comments and the LIKES !

It Always makes me  happy.


In the meantime I have completed the shrouds of the mainmast so far. They are lashed tight only when the stays are installed.

DSC08094.thumb.jpg.6a837f393ec7bf9013d6e0a15b4b5b6e.jpg

 

The stays were all cable laid and it is wormed, as can be seen.

Around 1830 the stay mouse disappeared. The stays split into two parts which each had an eye for a lashing.

The mainstay and main preventer stay penetrated the foredeck and was fastened under it with strong eye bolts. These had iron counter-plates on the outside of the hull.

Thank you for your interest and the LIKES.

Here I show the continuation of the work for the mainstay and the main preventer stay (Grand ètai et faux ètai grand mât).

First of all historical drawings for the execution of the detial can be seen.

Afterward you will see the realization for the model.

Hello

@druxey

first of all, thanks for your attention and all other

for the LIKES.

 

In between, I always need a change in model building to maintain the motivation.

 

So far I have used a purchased anchor cable that was a bit too thick. Now I've tried to make a better anchor cable with my rope making machine.
The anchor cable is made as a cable laid rope. In the original cable had a diameter of 107 mm, which corresponds to a scale of 1:48 exactly 2.2 mm.
This consists of 3 x 3 standed right handed ropes laid up left handed.
I think that the new anchor cable is much better than the purchased one.

Hello,

 

thank you for your interest and for the benevolent words.

Also thanks at all for die many LIKES.

 

Before I continue with the standing rigging, I have to add different details, because otherwise there is no accessibility.
On the one hand it concerns the ship toilietts, on the other hand it concerns belayin pins and cleats.
I hope you like the pictures.
