I never thought that my work generates such enthusiastic response

 

You might be only the one in this planet earth who is actually building a ship out of bones!!

 

Well maybe is just you and How many, five? ten? eleven??

 

Are you going to paint the cannons in black? hahahaha (risas) just kidding...

 

Absolutely amazing work. Best wishes.

Hello Anja, hello all

 

dear friends of ossified construction.
In the last few weeks, I have created the equipment used for carriages .... feel in 1000 eyebolt, ring bolts, hooks and blocks. In the next few days .... weeks, I'll show the mounting of the guns on the ship.
Until then, I ask you all for a little patience

The cannon rigging  part one

The Breech

The breeching tackle serves to prevent the gun after firing,
to fly through over the deck. ( Secular terms )

Scientists would / express something else incomprehensible : mass times the muzzle velocity , including the air temperature and humidity = measured at the shoe size of the gunner .......... etc. etc. results in ::: A breeching takle is required !

The breeching tackle by the guns of the Royal Caroline was probably spliced ​​behind the breech around the trowel .

To install this required a device :

A bracket in the final length of the breeching takle and the cannon was to build.
Simultaneously, a device for positioning of the gun was used .

The gun barrel is inserted into the bore of the holder ; Breeching rope to the standoffs attached and the splice been marked on the dew.

The splice is a rope / thread in the strength of strands (3  or more strands laid together forming a rope)
The splice is then threaded into a needle and pricked with the needle through the rope placed around the trowel and out on the other side through the cable .
On the way back you wrap the splice depending on the length of 3 - 4 times to the existing Part.  At the end back through the rope out it goes back in the same way ( wrapped ) .
Thereby the end is not too thick, splice the stand again to the left or right through the dew, leave a small piece and cut .
Now there is a fixed eye spliced ​​to the existing breechrope .
In this way, all eyes and cringels (on sail)  can be made. This not only looks good, it is by working technically still correct !

Now the work is still dressed and ready is the breechrope on the trowel

The next step is to attach the eyebolt on breechrope .

Therefor the gun is fixed to the mounting board and fastened to the retaining ring bolt in the assembly position .

So it looks when the ring bolt is fastened . The glue ( white glue ) is wrapped with serving .

On the ship the ring bolts will installed for the guntackle and tackle .

here a small update

 

the Blocks are now finished to takle on the Canons

 

post-3335-0-62179300-1395324665_thumb.jpg

 

 

The side takel had to be made once again because the hook and grummet were too long. :angry:
Everything carefully re-open (2 hooks broken) and a new strops. But this time in the correct length
:dancetl6:

I am in awe of your craft. It's a whole other art to building in plastic or wood. Kudos on your work. I have a question about the ringbolts. You seem to have the bolt and eye attached. Without some David Copperfield trickery, how do you get the ring onto the bolt? Is it carved there or do you have to somehow close the eye of the bolt onto the ring after they are connected? I don't see any joint lines in the rings......

Hello Sailor,

 

please look here:http://modelshipworld.com/index.php?/topic/1749-hmy-royal-caroline-1749-by-tarjack-made-from-bone-m-1-50/page-8

 

On this Page i show how i connected ring and eyebolt

 

So that the adhesion point can not be seen, I turn the part down.

 

no trick, no Copperfield, just a rotation ;)

 

Have fun

All hands on deck.............................he i said aaaalllllll haaaaands

 

After I make the many hooks, eyes and blocks (for the guns) have already spots before the eyes, was a small relaxation törn due for the eyes :bird-vi:

 

Therefore, I once make another figure from the bulwark ornament. ;)

The images come in the series of steps.

 

After the figure was transferred to paper and glued to the bone support, it was sawn on the contours.
 

And now have fun with the pictures:
