Model Mariner

Berlin by Model Mariner - 1674 - scale 1:64 Navy Board style

Recommended Posts

I just could not find the time to make an update of my log as intended, whenever I started there was something more urgent to be done and so time went by.
Whatever, I will try now to catch up and to bring the log to the current status by reposting the Pictures with only a few words.

Steering gear: I intend to make a working steeering gear (don't know yet if I will succeed)

 the making the whipstaff rowle and the rowle inserted in it's place in the hull:

PS: for whatever reason the inserting of the pictures did not work as it should, I could not place the pics at selected positions in the text. After clicking on "Add to post" no attachment code was visible at the selected positions and all pics were shown after my post

The ramshead block and lanyard between block and knight for the fore yard tie has to be rigged  already now, because later on it will not be accessible any more. The black thread through the upper part of the block is temporary only to be able to pull the block up through the small opening and will be replaced later by the tie.

 

Grating and opening for the lanyard added:

When I took measurements for making the poop bulkhead I discovered that I've cut the toptimbers in the aft part too low for the required height of the great cabin. To remedy this I glued a square piece of wood over the toptimbers which gave me the required additional heigth

Into this I cut slots for an extension of the toptimbers

Hello Klaus,

Beautiful build, congratulations!

I assume the  cabin door opens to the inside, as otherwise it would interfere  with the steering stick?

Greetings, Rudolf

are you planning to fully rig the model ?  Beautiful work. 

 

Thanks Brian. I have not decided yet.

I have made already the lower masts and the bowsprit and put them in store for later. I will in any case rig my Mayflower http://modelshipworld.com/index.php?/topic/514-mayflower-by-model-mariner-pob-scale-1-64-own-reconstruction/ 

on which I work in parallel, maybe I will rig Berlin also in parallel, maybe not.

 

So even if I decide not to rig the Berlin model immediately after finishing the hull I have the option to do so later.

In the last post I stated that the railings were finished, this was a mistake. there was still another railing to be done at the aft end of the waist, which is shown in the next picture (not yet stained).

I was also not content with the windows in the great cabin, so I cut them out and set in new ones, the railings at the ships side are now all done:

And now the last railing is the one at the front of the forecastle:

The head:

 

I started building of the head with the lower cheeks: these were cut out from a piece of maple (with a little bit extra flesh)

bent to the correct shape and then sanded to the required dimension and shape:

After painting the cheeks with gold paint I glued on a thin black strip:

The head (continued):

 

Making of the upper cheeks is more or less a repetition of the last job:

cutting out the cheeks (a little bit larger than required), bending and sanding to shape:

Thanks for the comments and likes  :)

 

The figure head has been painted and glued on.

I have installed at first the headrails and then fitted the head timbers. Maybe it would have been better to do it in reverse, but this is how I did it:

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.
