Chebec Eagle of Algier 1753 (short EOA) by Mirabell61 - 1:48 - Nils Langemann - Finished

Recommended Posts

further on with the Chebec`s glass case making....

 

the slotted rods unfortunately come only in 900mm lengths, due to the required length of the base and the glass panes, the rods will have to be shafted. I chose a brass reinforcement profile in order to strengthen the shafted joints. The complete glass bonnet and its frame will be guided and centered in 6 places for removal..... (at four corners and one on each length side)

this is my little model, which I take to the glasser, when ordering the panes, together with a scetch comprising the dimensions, pointing out why the dimensions and tolerances are important to hold

corner / side guide sleeves and pins to centre the removeable bonnet later on

shafting the bottom length sides at 25° angle, with brass reinforcement profiles (assemly with CA)

the reinforcement will hardly be visible afterwards

Good morning Nils, I just finished catching up with your model. Again you have shown a wonderful rendition of your subject that is alive with character and demonstrated skills. I shall have to try your sailmaking methods, I thought the bolt rope method was very clever. Congratulations on the completion. You mentioned some time ago that one of your favourite boats was the cutter Genesta, it would be nice to follow you build it, but you probably already have the next one sorted.

Hi Michael,

 

many thanks for looking in again.....

I`m pleased you like the method for bringing on the bolt ropes. When I did it first I was searching for a way to sew the bolt rope to the sail edge per sewing machine because I just could`nt do it with a steady and evan hand stitch.

And yes, the British cutter "Genesta" and its build is still one of my favorites as I fell in love with those beautiful lines, and she`s a "must" to start a build with one day.....

 

Best regards

Nils

Nils I looked up your picture and have some questions about the model in one of the pictures there appears to be a large spar hung on the mast in front of the spreaders is this a spinnaker pole?

 

Michael

Michael,

yes, it is a "spinnaker pole" (may have had a different nomination in those days)  for a mighty size triangle sail, that is rigged, and standing out about 90° to the ships axis

Thanks Bill,

for looking in, pleased you like it.....

 

For that air machine in the coming action film, I checked the official trailer (U-tube), it takes much imagination to see a Chebec in it, but quite interesting.... I`m sure my son will be looking out for that movie

Best regards,

Nils

Many thanks for your kind compliment Dan,

much appreciated, yes I trust the Chebec worked out quite well, and I`m satisfied with the result. The display place in my hobby room had been swapped with that of the the Gorch Fock model, which will find its new mooring place upstairs...

Thank you very much Michael,

 

The model is now standing under the window on a side board, in good view from my desk working place...

I was so happy to get all the glas panes without any damage or breakage. Together with my wife we got the glasbonnet gently and slowly down from above and on to the guide pins

Hi Michael,

Thanks for looking in,....

Since my hobby room is in the cellar, a window opens into a brick shaft. (emergancy escape) During the day, some light falls from above, but not so much to cause sunlight fading...

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.
