NORDEN by sandorm - Billing Boats - Scale 1:30 - first build


Recommended Posts

Now Trying to remember:

 

After many holidays in Denmark - It was my wish to build one of these  little nice fishing boats

which one can see in all harbours of the West coast of Denmark

 

Cheers Steffen

 

I hope my work looks like  this afterwards  :

Cabin !

 

To avoid the problem  finding  the correct angle of the cabin front

I  used an easy  "helping construction "  - not included in the kit B)

 

@Alex -- thank you for the hint in your log

Detail view - Working on window frames ....

 

The painting of the cabin didn't work quite adequate for me

 

and I had to put some glue to the   left cabin edge  at a certain point after painting as well

 

I should have been waiting longer until the drying process has completely finished ,  because  this  made the paint to scrape off

 

Now  I take the the best of it --   looks like corrosion --  Vintage, eldered   :D

 

Cheers       :dancetl6:

your Norden looks great Steffen!   the  "Mary Ann"  pilot house was built the same way.  I wasn't happy though,  because the windows were too small......so I made another one with larger ones.   I 've built a few of these Billing Boats....instructions are not the greatest,  but the kit is pretty good.  I used to have the Mary Ann and the Cux 87 build here,  but they were lost in the crash.  these two were based on a full hull construction,  unlike your build which is a half hull design.......but the hulls are quite simular.   your build looks familiar.......did you start this one before the crash?  I never forget a build  :)

Today , started planking the deck

I want to use some black twine to put between the  planks -  for gaining some "calk" effect

 

hope it works ....

 

The best way to get a nice curve on the edges of the planks near bow and stern   is to  cut and taper before glueing !

 

Cheers Steffen

well.....hello there!   good to see your making progress  ;)   I got this same boat kit for Christmas...guess I'd better be taking notes :)

 

structures and layout looks super.   very nice choice of colors.   I use an archive pen for the simulated calking........a bit less labor intensive.   planking looks good so far  :)
