Byzantium by qwerty2008 - RADIO - Scale 1: 20 - based on the Pride of Baltimore

Recommended Posts

I just realized that I interpreted the negative space in the line drawings as positive space and made the wales wrong. should I fix them or just leave them?

Jerry I hope you don't mind me using a picture from your build log the red aria is the wale on your Pride the blue aria is the wale on my Byzantium.

You're not building an accurate model of an actual boat, but a sort of fantasy boat.  I don't think this is much of an issue, especially not structurally.
The bottom line is you.  It's your model, what do you want?  If thine wale offend thee, pluck it off.

I haven't been able to get on MSW for the past few days. Since my last post I made the t'gallant yard and the yoke and parrels for fore course yard and the topsail yard.

I have not done much work on the model lately but yesterday I did manage to make the tubes that the bolts for the drop keel go though. I also made a block to seal between the counter and the deck so water wont get in around the rudder which will be made from aluminium tube and clear polycarbonate that will be slotted and epoxied in place.

I started on the ruder, I still need to fill the tube with resin, make the hinge and make the tiller. I also made a skylight which will be placed just aft the path of the capstan bars. I am going to go with a capstan rather then a windlass, this clears up space in the bow and fills the extra space towards the stern.

I made the capstan, in the images it does not sit flush with the deck because I have not decided on an exact position yet also the capstan bars in the second picture are temporary mockups so I could see how much space the capstan would need.

Capstans don't normally appear on such small vessels but I wanted one and it helped with space management. I made the bars similar in proportion to the capstans on larger ships, if you look at the capstan on dafi's victory you can see that the bars go very close to either side of the ship so I did the same.

I have been working on the removable keel the past couple of days. I made the fin and cut the slots for the bolts I also made a muckup weight from foam board the weight will be cast from approximately 30 pounds lead but first I will do another float test just to make sure that it will need 30 pounds if not I will adjust accordingly.

I finished building up the thickness of the bulwarks all the way down to the deck and made the anchors. The anchors are made mostly from wood, the flukes are card and the rings will be copper.

The diameter is about. 3.5mm, (between 3 and 4 inches in full scale) I made it from four strands of some Nylon string that I got from Wal-Mart a few years back. I might change it later on in the build this one was just so I could see how the anchors would look when finished.

I installed the first bit of radio control gear, the rudder servo and the rudder linkage.

I was also wondering if I should ad another gun port on each side towards the stern where I have drawn the [?] I could then get rid of the planed stern chasers by making the two aft most cannons able to be unshiped and moved to the chaser ports when necessary.

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.
