HMS Winchelsea 1764 by Stuntflyer (Mike) - 1/4" scale


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Over the weekend I worked on the rudder trunk and benches. Of course, Chuck's laser cut parts made things relatively easy. The tricky part was getting a tight fit between all the parts. The top of the rudder trunk needs to be angled where it sits up against the transom. I had to sand the bevel almost to a point in order to get a clean joint. When it came time to add the benches, I found that I needed to sand the bottoms slightly curved in order to match the camber in the margin plank. Further adjustments were made to insure that the benches did not sit on the deck.

I thought it might be a good time to get this post in as it covers a number of tasks that I've been working on.

 

Starting with the gun port lids.

The first step was to get these two planks fitting correctly

The last plank is placed underneath so that the bottom edge can be traced

The final result with all three planks in place

When adding the frieze, the top section is cut away so it can be registered with the frieze below.

Final result with lid lining attached, painted and ready for hinge

 

Pinned cleats to the bulwarks.
