Papegojan by Mati - 1/48 dutch pinnace 1627

Recommended Posts

Welcome back... after some problems with old MSW my logs and not only mine were lost... so now I'll try restore what I wrote before...
So... I'm building dutch pinnce from XVII century. Vessel was built in Dutch shipyard and then serve few years in Dutch Navy... after all Navy sold ship in 1623 to Swedish Navy. This vessel participate in the battle of Oliwa (coast of Poland) in 1627... battle was part of war between Poland and Sweden. In 1929 vessel came back to the waters of Bay of Gdańsk to took part with other vessels in blockade of the City of Gdańsk. She was sank in 1644.

 

I'm using pear wood for entire model (except deck which was made using birch wood and carvings which is pau marfin)

Rest information you 'll find in following logs...

 

That how model looks after one year...

...and planking ;) of course pear wood. Bow planking calibrate to avoid stealers. I formed planks using only water and 36,6 deree celsius from my hands. Pear lath if was cut properly it'll be very flexible ;) Imitation of taring on the edge of each lath was made using soft pencil.

Hello Mati,

 

Fantastic! This is an awesome build. Beautiful work.

I love the pear wood and the way you planked your decks.

Your carvings are looking great too. Although I had to look up what pau farnim was ..... Now I know, In Dutch it is called ivory wood.

 

What plans are you using for this build?

 

I will follow this build with great interest.

 

Take care,

 

Anja

Playing around with rope making :P I already have plenty ropes... but still not enough...
Rope making are eating so mant time. Then it's necessary to permeate ropes .

These ropes are the most thiner diameter which I'm able to make using cotton threads and three thread (0,35mm and 0,25mm) of course you can lay thiner using two threads but quality and presentation are not gratifying. I have very nice syntetic threads which I'll use...most probably ;) Syntetic threads are more elastic... and give opportunity to lay thin rope... problem is always with permeate and insulation (syntetic ropes like to "grab" dust... so it's necessary to hobble electrostatic force :P ...but about this and how to do it, I'll write in nearby future ;)

Time to wipe a little bit dust from this log :)
I finished my contract... I'm on the vacation and the wether is miserable :P
I sill have a little bit of free time before I'll come back to another contract... so it's good moment to continue building!

So finally I overwhelm myself... set the workshop and I'd like to present what I've done.

Enjoy... I hope ;)

 

Hinges are made from brass. Hinge blade thick. 0,2mm, rest parts brass wire 0,5mm and brass tube 0,68mm
One single door hinge contain 10 elements. Everything was solder using silver. Blackned using selenium acid and protected with microcristal wax.

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.
