Pride of Baltimore II by Karleop - FINISHED - Model Shipways - 1:64

Recommended Posts

Hola a todos:

After almost a month I have new updates.  One important decision was to put or not to put the sails, and finally I decided that this will be my first model ship with no sails and present the ship as if it were on a dry dock or cradle.  However I decided to place most of the rigging except those that hold the sails. Here you can see the rigging of the main mast finished.

 

Next step, the Foremast rigging.

 

Saludos, Karl

Hola Frankie:

The kit lacked blocks, some pieces of metal and many more details, besides the threads for rigging are quite bad, however fake "diamond" skylights were included.

Hola Don:

Now I am working slower due to the weather (here we have some days over 110 F outdoors) and we will also leave on vacation for a few weeks so the launch of the POB will take some time.
What will be the next project? I have to think about it because the commander tells me that there is no space in the house for more boats. I think I'll have to change my hobby, hahaha.

 

Saludos, Karl

Hola Bob:

The shield and lettering was a great challenge but as you can see in my post #23 (Oct 21, 2016) I resolved it making the lettering with the computer and with a little try and error obtained the correct size. For the shield I got a drawing from google, print it to the correct size and glue it over a previously made wood piece: I attached you this drawing:

After some vacations I continued with my boat work. Now with the foremast rigging. It was actually slower than I thought at first because of the large amount of rigging to place (and I did not put the sails on!!).

 

To give a different and more interesting touch tilt the yards a bit. This also allows me to make the case a bit narrower.  Here some pic´s:

Hola:

Almost reaching the end. Now I've put the running and stern lights, the lifeline stanchions and railing as well as the small swivel guns and a pair of life rings.

 

What remains to finish is the construction of the cradle or building-ways, and finally a case to protect the model.

 

Saludos, Karl

Hey Karl. Yeah. Moving is a chore, and to top it off, I had to have surgery in my right palm. My middle finger was getting stuck when I bend it and straightening it out was a very painful experience. They are supposed to remove stitches this Tuesday the fifth and I hope things will improve from then on! I have not touched my ship maybe in a month!!!

 

Edit: Did you see I got Sergal's Sovereign of the Seas? :)

Hola Ulises:

Como decimos: cuando no te llueve te llovizna. (something like:  when it does not rain you drizzle)

It is very sad to hear about your new inconvenience  but I hope in a few more days you will be as new and ready to finish your Royal and begin with the Sovereign of the seas.

Saludos, Karl

I have Pride of Baltimore II that I received for Christmas 2 years and have started. It will be my first wooden ship. I am learning a lot from the posts. Thanks for all the good information.

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.
