excellent milling job

Christian,

 

Only the bottom part was actually milled. The sides, as they were bevelled, the notches were manually cut and filed to size.

This may be a stupid question, but... :)

How do you make a brass nails flush with the wood? The only way I know is sanding, and it is hard to do on convex surfaces or in any confined place. But on your photos I see brass nails perfectly flush, and in places where I can't imagine getting with a sanding block. What is the trick?

Mike,

 

No question is stupid. 

I use files to make the nails flush with the wood.  For convex surfaces I have curved files as you can see in the first picture, the second and the third file. Both have a flat surface in section but the third one is pointed so if I use it closer to the point it will file a smaller surface. For even trickier places I have a curved file with a half round section - the third in the second picture.

Hope this answer your question.

Thank you Greg, Druxey, Christian and Albert.

 

I made some progress in the couple last weeks and now the barge is completed. The inside was already oiled as once the deck is in place I will have limited access to do it later - even if the deck planking is only partial.

Here are the pictures.

Beautiful joinery Alexandru, What diameter are the brass pins that you are using for the treenails? 

 

Michael

Michael,

 

The brass wire is 0.5mm in diameter.

Hello,

 

More progress pictures.

 

You will probably notice the knee under the last beam placed on the inside in first 2 pictures - that was a mistake and I took them out since then. In picture number 8 they are on the outside as they should have been in the first place.

 

I started the small wheel this morning and it is more complicated to build than I expected. I thought that the small one will be easier to do than the big one first but because is small all pieces are thin and break very easily. The two wheels are made from 6 arched pieces each - think I had to cut at least 4 more to replace the broken ones. Plus the horizontal/vertical spokes are square 2mm thick in section and they join at half wood. Those broke a lot too. But in the end I managed to do them and they look quite sturdy now after the full assembly. Quite happy with them.

Hello,

 

Here are some more progress pictures. Slower progress over the summer with vacations and nice weather to stay in the basement workshop. 

 

The small wheel was completed beginning of May. The big one mid June. Then a long break and after that started working on the "scoop" - metalworking is not my forte so is taking a lot of time. Plus I break a lot of 0.6mm drill bits. Worst part is that when they break they rest into the piece and there is no way to take the small bit out. 

 

Now I am blocked again as I break the last bit this morning and I still have to drill both sides. I ordered 100 more bits on eBay but it will take a while till I get them. They are very cheap (0.99CAD for 10, free shipping from China) but the quality is proportional with the price - I would say one in three actually cuts into the brass, the others I will end up using them in wood.

 

Another first today - riveting - went better then I expected once I got the feel for it and learned how long the piece of wire to make a nice rivet.

Oh darn, the pictures ended up in reverse order.

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.
