La Créole 1827 by archjofo - Scale 1/48 - French corvette

Recommended Posts

Before it goes on in the report I would not Forget to thank you for your nice comments an the many LIKES.


After the little excursion to the bulwark I continued with the shrouds for the foremast.
The foremast has 5 shrouds per side. Therefore, the last shrouds require a special design. These are placed together with a so-called horse-shoe-splice.

The shrouds of the La Creole for the mizzenmast had a diameter of 58 mm, which corresponds to a diameter of 1.2 mm on a scale of 1:48. The foremost shrouds were not served in this case.
Thus I have set all shrouds so far.
Here are a few pictures.




Finally, a picture of the current state of construction.

I would like to thank you very much for liking my work. Also many thanks for the many LIKES.

The report continues with the fore stay and preventer fore stay.
A special feature is the attachment to the bowsprit with leather collars.

@jose_b and @Wishmaster
thank you very much for your motivating comments. Thanks also to the others for the lot LIKES.

Some time ago, I already reported on the production of the burton pendants. These had to be placed before attaching the shrouds.
Meanwhile I made the fore tackles. These consist of heavy double blocks, for example, to lift heavy loads or to support the rigging, and other.


The las Picture Shows how the fore tackle is hooked to the channel.

@John Allen
Thank you for your appreciation, and all the others for the many LIKES.

Here is an update on how to make the main and fore takle.
The fixing of the eye bolts on the channels was done with an iron wedge that goes through the bolt. Here is the implementation in model making.

I continue with my report as follows.
For the Ratlines, I bought japanese silk, which is very thin.

On the next picture are thin ropes of this silk 2 x 3 with a diameter of approx. 0.35 mm can be seen. The thick rope is 1.15 mm thick, which corresponds to the thickness of the shrouds.
Before I do the ratlines on the model, I test on a device.
