The Zeehaen by hjx - 1:48 - a 17th century dutch merchant ship, admiralty model by CNC


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!

This is my first build log for ship-model building, The Zeehaen, a 17th century dutch merchant ship.

The primary references is 17th CENTURY DUTCH MERCHANT SHIPS(by Ab Hoving) and Shipbuilding in the Dutch Golden Age. The reason for choosing zeehaen is it seems simple but a bit special, and the carving patterns are relatively simple for me to practice. Cor Emke's plans are not suitable for a full frame ship model, but I like some challenging making, although I find I think too simple at first- my 3D building process seemed to hit a brick wall, I can't get any reliable reference of internal structure on the stem and stern. so I finally changed my mind and took Mike Y's advice- start my log while the project is not yet completed. Perhaps someone can provide more accurate internal structural drawings to correct my mistakes, in addition, I also make a presentation of my making methods- Almost all parts were designed by 2D/3D and output to CNC processing.

 

This is current progress

Keel and some special-shaped parts using CNC double-sided milling processing

The "V slot" was  processed directly by CNC.

The Building jig

This kind of jig is recommended by my friend, wangshuoliurui,as a senior shipmodel builder in china. I think this kind of jig is more suitable for those hull in 17th Century.

Some experiments of figurehead or figurine carving patterns were designed by 3d and processed by multi-axial CNC .

3Dmodel was build by rhino, This requires accurate size.
