De Eendracht by kay - 1:50 - a dutch flagship


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

 

 

 

 

At the beginning of the year, I began to build the Dutch flagship De Eendracht for a good friend. My friend Werner has been reconstructing the ship for about 16 years, and has been traveling a lot in the Netherlands in the archives. He gave me the manuscript of his book and the plans of the ship.

 

 

The Eendracht was built in Rotterdam in 1654 by the shipbuilders Goossen Schalck van der Arent and Jan Salomonszon van der Tempel. The ship had a length of 152 feet and a width of 38 feet. The ship was armed in 1654 with 58 guns.

 

 

The Eendracht was the flagship of Jacob van Wassenaer Obdam in the naval battle of Lowesoft, where she exploded.

 

 

Since there are many drawings by van de Velde from the Eendracht, I have laid down the basis for the Brielle van de Velde.

 

 

And off we go, we're going to build.

 

 

 

 

 

Here the van de Velde drawings of Brielle

 

 

 

 

 

Regards Kay

hi Guys,

 

The construction started with the marking of the keel from the plan. The plan is a construction drawing, it is not made for model building. All dimensions are in 1:1. As always, everything is then sawn out and put together.

 

Pictures say more than 1000 words, so see!

 

Regards kay

Hello Kay,

 

Anja dragged me by my ear to this ship yard.....

We are both from Rotterdam and we seen the Eendracht many times.

Only not the one that you are building but the newest version :-)

So I will take a seat in the next row and will enjoy.

Not only your work but also the environment. Das Schwarzwald!

And it goes on. The outer edge of the frames has been blackened to have a reference point when grinding. Now the hull was filled with plywood, according to the method of Robert Volk / germany. The method yields a very solid hull.

 

@Elijah:  With the jigsaw, handwork !

@sjors : Yes, the Black Forest is a very nice area, I like to live here!

 

@all: Thanks for your comments !

This is roughly the state of the building. I then made the windows at the stern, where a friend said they looked horrible. So I again made it new. And further I have built a 18 pound cannon, which is to serve as a model for pouring.

 

@zoly, yes, Robert Volk write a book, only in german

The cannon is designed as a pattern and was turned free hand. The wood is only clamped in a drill. The wood at the stern is pear. I had forgotten to show that I had already cut the gunports. Work was also done at the stern. The "Hennegat" was again made and the gunports were moved still somewhat direction sternpost.

Some of the gunports on the cow bridge are still missing, as the position is not yet clear.

Hello,

long, long ago, but to my excuse I must say, it does not go faster. I make every plank one by one, it must bend, let dry and then glue. This takes a while. Here are some pictures. The underwater hull is almost finished. The windows at the rear are also in it. The next images are then, if that's underwater hull finished.

 

Regards kay
