NOTE: In this log I used Photo Bucket to add pictures but after problems with PB all my links to my pictures were blocked. I've replaced most of the dead links with new pictures but that was not always possible. (so there are still some deadlinks and sometimes the sequence is not correct)

In this buildinglog I will present you the build of the Dutch beamtrawler KW88, Pelikaan.

42,35 x 8,50 x 5,16 mtr

Build in 1999 as the UK 153, Lun Senior, sold in 2007 and named KW88, Pelikaan.

Motor: 2000HP Deutz

 

The ship has sumwings and uses an electric pulse system The sumwing are like wings and do not touch the bottom. With electric pulse the fish jumps of the bottom and ends in the net.

 

I started collecting information, photo's and drawings a few months ago and now I am at the point that I can actually start with the build.

I have a complete set of original drawings and almost 500 photo's

 

It will take some time before I start building this ship because I want to finish the KW49 first.

 

First some photo's of the ship.

 

As the UK 153

I'm in too! Looking forward to following this build. It's a good looking ship! But, I have a knack for modern workboats and the like. It's a reminder that the marine industry is still alive, and that there's still a lot of variety. They don't have the same type of charm as the old wooden ships and the like, but they have their own charm - and their own challenges in building!

 

Again, really looking forward to it!

Hello everybody,

 

At this moment I have done a lot of work for this model allready. Lots of work will not be vissible when she is ready but is inevitable to get a realistic model. But how good is the feeling when you have (after all the work) a fysical hull in your hands wich look svery good. On the pictures you see the wooden model of the hull. They call this the plug and I will use this in the future to make a polyester mould arround it so I can make multiple hulls out of it. I do this because I want to make two of the same models and maybe I can sell some hull later to other modelbuilders.

The pictures

The templates are ready to trace them on the wood

All templates traces on the triplex

The gluing of the longitudinal cross-sections. I pay attention that they are on the correct line and place according the drawings.

 

And here all the sections together and the top-part glued in places

And then with the help of several powertools and a lot of sanding by hand sanding the shape of the hull. I have to do this very carefull so I wont sand to much. Most of the finishing I do by hand because you have more feeling and it gives a better result.

(Okay I admit. The sander was not even turned on. My wife made an ACTION-picture. But you can see I lost weigt tough B) )

And then after a lot of sanding and filling (lots of times) you see the result. Its nice and smooth and ready for further finishing.

Thank you for watching, like-ing and reply-ing. The build is on and more updates will follow soon!

 

Kind regards, Kees

Hello Paul,

 

Yes it is my plan to make a fiberglass mould around it and when that is finished I hope to make fiberglass hulls. I want to make two models of this ship. One for the client and one for myself.

 

Regards, Kees

I would have expected three parts .. considering the stern and bow shapes, two would still leave you in a difficult postion, as far as I can see ... though, sometimes I'm blind to solutions ;)

Splitting lengthwise?

He is making a negative mould to fabricate the actula hull. Splitting lengthwise would result in a seam that can be masked relatively easy.

I started working on the beamtrawler again. In the summer it's just to hot at the attic so I can't build there. I have done some home improvement instead and build some showcases for a friend.

 

I sanded the hull and painted her with epoxy and the sanded her again. She has a babyskin now, soft and smooth. I also made a start with the halfround and the spraydeck.

Very nice work Kees,

 

as you once mentioned, you are always good for surprises, and I bet you will also have some amazing Solutions for this Project up your sleeve.

Am looking Forward with great interest to the further sequences of the "Pelikaan" build. The split negative mould, and it`s make will be very interesting to see,

I`m curious already....

Hello Kees,

 

Like NIls, I'm very interested in how you go from here: you started detailing the hull, but I understood that this hull is the master, you are going to use to fabricate a negative mould. But how are you going to get all this fine detail in your final hull? Casting, vacuum?

The plan is I am going to make a two-part fibre glass mould wich I will use to make fibreglass hulls in it. Thats the plan. I have never done it before so I don't know if I can do it. Next updates will show the procces I hope.

 

Regards, Kees

Nice work on the plug Kees. Splitting the mould along the keel will let you capture all the nice detail on the hull sides with no problem. But the detail on the transom, particularly the vertical pieces, could give you a problem when separating the mould from the plug. Imagine pulling the cured mould sideways away from the plug - those vertical members on the stern will stop the mould releasing cleanly. You might have to remove those pieces from the plug then add them to the model hull during the build.

 

Or have I missed something? You may well have thought this through more thoroughly than I have!

I am going to use a two part split mould because I saw this in building logs by other modellers. When you split the mouldparts, you start at the bow so you can turn the parts away from aech other. The transom wont give any problems this way.

 

I hope to show you how thing turn out in the next few updates

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.
