The 7-Provinciën 1665 by YankeeD - Scale 1:50 - according to drawings by Mr. O. Blom (First wooden scratch ship build)

Recommended Posts

Well about time for another uupdate although not very much has happened. The weather has been very good for weeks in a row now so little progress.

 

But Starboard side I finished up to the 3rd whale. I had to do some correction on 2 gunports. Which is the second time but it was still not ok, I simply dont understand why as I checked tripple times before.

 

here the wrong situation: With the 5th port already a part of an insert for the correction. 5b45d3d599ebb_20180706_152932(Custom).thumb.jpg.3a19132118482fb6bbe81c6751bcf7be.jpg

 

And here after correction. After sanding it is hard to even see the inserts. I used insert pieces to lower the ports instead of replacing a full plank. I was afraid that removing a whole plank would damage too much.5b45d3d3e10ef_20180710_162529(Custom).thumb.jpg.ed682a8b3a05535475fe855bccdbe634.jpg

 

Nest steps are the portside planking and the 3rd whale.

Well i am finshed with plancking up to the third whale on both sides now. Both sides had the same flaw with wrongly placed gunports which have been corrected now.

Below picture does not show the correction yet but the camera (GSM) also has some distortion and the angel differs from the picture below of the starboard side, so it is not as bad as it seems. In the mean time this side has been corrected as well.

Now I started working on the gunports and the rabbets. To make the gunports I made a sanding tool, 2 sides sandpaper only. It works great although slow but accurate. It makes it easy for me to make sure the ports are perpendicular (thanks google).

All the rabbets are oversized in lenght, so I will make them fit and than protrude them and sand them to follow the hull. Then I will have them fall back about 1.5mm and sand the inside equal to the inside planks. I will not fasten them until I am ready to move up and start on the upper deck.

But before starting the upper deck I have to decide how far I will go. Do I install canons or not, only a wooden model or closed gunports???? havn't made my mind up about that yet.

Secondly I still have to come up with a good working method to make the gunport hatches. including the dilution to fall into the rabbet.

So all in all a lot to do still.

Well its been more then a month, time for an update. I finished both sides with the gunport inserts/rabbits It took me the majority of the past months.

Still also some small corrections but I am happy withe results.

 

In between sides I stopped for some diversion to work on the gunport lids and hinges, just as a test. But I am not satisfied. I have to find an easier method to make them in qty.

 

For now the work will stop a couple of weeks for holiday. The next step I decided to do the rudder anew. I made that in an too early stage and I want to improve it and more realistic. I just became more and more unhappy with it.

Just a short update. Its been very quiet and I haven't done much.

I have had surgery on my hand and that takes more time as expected. I also neglected to take it easy and that put me back again a couple of weeks.

 

Also the motivation is low. The weather is cold and bad and I need to go outside to the shed.So I guess it will be untill next year before I will continue. Don't worry I'll be back :)!

Hans, I just spent my lunch break reading through your build log and wow!! A very educational build indeed. Sorry to hear about your surgery and setbacks on recovery. Hopefully, that will turn around for you and your hand will heal up correctly. I look forward to watching you continue your work once you are healed and the weather is nicer.

Hi all, (do not want to be gender specific....;))

I have returned to the hobby again after a full recovery of my hand. Thanks for all the good whishes.

Just waiting to get the right hand done, but that will be spring somewhere. not just yet...

 

I have started redoing the rudder as said. I am using mainly the method used by Drazen (Thanks for that!) I think the photo's are mostly self explanatory. Its a slow learning curve but I like it very much although progress is slow.

I made the rudded out of seperate parts of wood, taking care of the grain direction as to prevent as much as possible deformation. And I decided to do the hinges also from scratch. Previously I used Amati hinges.

I had a big problem blackening the parts. I left them much too long in the solution and 2 were totally 'eaten' away. I did 4 pieces again.

I on purpose made the bolting a little out of line. I like the looking of this.

And now up to the counter part. I hope to finish today.

In the meantime we have advanced. I build a new clamping/workboard. As there is no longer need to hang the ship upside down and I want free space to work all around the ship.

The next steps are working gradually upwards now. I have to finish everything around the main gundeck before I can close the next deck.

Then the gunport rabbits and hatches

More than a month ago so maybe time to give an update. Steadily working through the gunport hatches, a tedious and boring job.

Fitting all in place..519701535_20190409_145010(Custom).thumb.jpg.55eba5d287885b9ea89ec3c91ee2d060.jpg

But I am happy with the looks. Not too tight and perfect. I like it that way, as I am sure ships in those days weren't neither.1928273355_20190424_152117(Custom).thumb.jpg.4fd4fdf635567555ec9078b185141fe9.jpg

Then the insides grounding.

And I still like how it came about.. The next steps will be finishing the maingun deck so I added some loose parts that I build earlier for the looks. I guess any builder wants to see how it will look and cant wait to see the whole....??

Also I will be doing the final masts at least first parts, as I have been using too short counterfits. Below the right lenght cuttings ready for working on them. This I will do first as I will be happy to turn from the monotonous work of the gunports.

Another month passed by so time for another update. Not much has happened as we were out to the sun for a couple of weeks.

As said I continued with the masts, below the 3 masts are the final masts outlined and all..

This was quite some ado to get them in the right angels in both directions... langscheeps and dwarsscheep... (Longship and sideships???)

Next step the ezelshoofd and hommer, the pictures speak for itself but there was some mindbraking involved to get what I liked.

As the mast were too long form mu turning device  I had to invent a workabout...
