La Santisima Trinidad 1769 by Liberto - 1805

Recommended Posts

                              LA SANTISIMA TRINIDAD   1769 / 1805

Hola amigos:

 Para la realización de este proyecto se ha partido de copias o de planos de época de autenticidad indudable, y correspondientes a su estado en 1797 justo antes de la batalla de San Vicente. En esa batalla la Santísima Trinidad resulto muy dañado y no se conoce con certeza las obras que hicieron de reparación en la popa y en la proa.

Los planos necesarios para el modelo que se esta realizando  (escala 1 / 72) son obra de nuestro compañero Chimista, partiendo de los planos originales de 1797, y completados por dibujos de los alzados de proa y de popa hechos según su criterio a partir de la vista lateral del casco, así como de otros planos de navíos de 112 cañones de la época correspondiente, planos del Museo Naval  de Madrid

El dibujo de la peineta o coronamiento de popa es una conjetura del autor del proyecto basado en las formas que aparecen en la vista lateral.

Como  podéis imaginar este proyecto es el resultado de varios meses de arduo trabajo de investigación, los planos han sido revisados, corregidos, y dibujados, tratando en todo momento de aproximarse al máximo a la imagen que pudo ofrecer este emblemático navío en el periodo de tiempo comprendido entre la ultima reforma a la que fue sometido en la Carraca 1797 y su triste final en la Batalla de Trafalgar 1805.

Doy las gracias mas sinceras a nuestro compañero Chimista   por la confianza que pone en mí para llevar a cabo este novedoso proyecto… tratare de estar a la altura.

Saludos  Liberto

Hello friends:
 For the realization of this project it has been party copies or drawings of undoubted authenticity period, and corresponding to their status in 1797 just before the Battle of San Vicente. In that battle the Holy Trinity was badly damaged and is not known with certainty the repair works made in the stern and the bow.
The plans necessary for the model that is being made (scale 1/72) are the work of our colleague Chimista, based on the original plans of 1797, supplemented by drawings of the raised bow and stern facts at their discretion from the side view of the helmet, as well as other planes of ships of 112 guns of the corresponding period, plans of the Naval Museum of Madrid
The drawing of the comb or taffrail is a conjecture of the author of the project based on forms that appear in the side view.
As you can imagine this project is the result of several months of hard research work, the plans have been revised, corrected, and drawn, trying at all times as close as possible to the image that could offer this iconic ship in time between the last reform which was submitted in the Carrack 1797 and its sad end at the Battle of Trafalgar 1805.
I give sincere thanks to our partner Chimista for the trust placed in me to carry out this new project ... I try to keep up.
greetings Liberto

Hello Louis and Matle, thank you for your generous comments.
Indeed these carriages are unusual, design is our partner Chimista, and is simply a support for stable and aligned fixing of the guns, shape facilitates placement of the canyon from the outside at the right time.
Step new images, Greetings Liberto

I thought that might be the reason. A clever idea. The build is looking very good.

Hello friends, thank you again and I'm glad you like my work.
Wacko Indeed these are the tools I use, have a slightly higher price but good quality.
Friends I send you some pictures:
 As I folded these ebony strips have 5,5x2,5 m / m, and use a martyr bar with the same measure in the Pyrenees boxwood.
 Ebony immerse in boiling water for a few minutes, then fold it, following the images that accompany.
The strakes for closing the hull are pear 5.5x 2.5m / m.
And we continue greetings Liberto

Incredible accuracy and precision! Everything is so clearly marked up... Will use it is a reference, a good reminder that precise model requires careful measurements, markups and reference lines.

Planking lines are soo smooth! I can go on and on and on :) please keep the pictures coming!

Mil Felicidades Liberto.


Your work is so fine and clean. And your workshop is my dream workshop. Keep going. I will follow with interest. El Santísima Trinidad is in my stash of future builds. I will try to steal some of your ideas.


Felicidades desde México.

Love what your doing so far. By the way the way what are those stands you use. Are they Home made or a commercial product? It looks like you can place your hull in any position to be able to work on it.

Hi friends, thank you all cometarios you do, this encourages me and even more coming from such experienced modelers, thank you comrades.
Of course I will continue to pass images of the advances I am making.
The supports are made by me, the design is our companion Chimista, and can effectively adapt very well to our need.
Os paso pictures, saludos Liberto

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.
