Golden Hind ex Pelican by Angarfather - 1:36

Recommended Posts

 

I have started the next project, an elizabethanian galleon.

I use some plans I did find in two old german modeling books, Mondfeld, Historische Schiffsmodelle, a german classic from the early 70., and Stoeckel,Risse von Schiffen des 16. und 17. Jahrhunderts. Both authors showed very similar plans of an elizabethanian galleon, named Golden Hind or ex Pelican. It may be a model of Drakes Golden Hind. How Golden Hind looked exactly is unclear. But I like the plans, and they also seems quite right for the type Galeone of the english sailors in the time of queen Elizabeth Tudor.

 

Fist step was to modify the slipway. For the aligning of the frames on the keel plate I use a cross line laser

Great start Hartmut,

 

I'm happy to see another scratch build Golden Hind on this forum. The book "Risse von Schiffen des 16. und 17. Jahrhunderts" is indeed very helpful to build this ship.

I will follow your build

 

Michel looks like a friendly guard ;)

Hello Hartmut

 

I have just found your new build log on the Golden Hind. I see that you are building at 1:36 scale, wow this will be a rather large scale of the Golden Hind. I am building mine at the 1:60 scale and this gives me a very little ship. I did think of building at a larger scale but we live in a small home so that dictates just how big that I can display my ships. Your scale will give you lots of room to add a great deal of detail that I love to add to a model ship.

 

I see that you are off to a fine start with lots of very fine equipment to ensure that you do a good job. It never hurts to check and double check as it can eliminate a lot of rebuilds. Good luck with your new build and above all; else,                                                                                                                         ENJOY.

 

Regards   Lawrence

Hi Hartmut

 

I’ve just found your build log.  I hope that I can still get a front row seat, for what looks like another one of your masterpieces.  

 

I’ll definitely be following along.  

 

Cheers.

Aye, Mates,

 

many thanks for your kind interest in my new project.

 

I am building the hull in an unusual way. Instead of a first planking I glue in plywood between the bulkheads. Than I had to sand it into its shape. Here are some pics from this way.

IMG_6167.thumb.jpg.c0346a9dd17b2abbc45fbdbac06e26d6.jpg

This construction results in a very stable hull. Next. I'll plan the material for the wales, the keel and the deck beams. I still have a few pieces of mahagony that will work well for that. The planks I will make from pear.That can look pretty good together.

Great start Hartmut. Nice large scale for all the detail you'll be putting on the ship, as I suspect you will.

Yes, a rather unorthodox way prepping the hull for planking but you are right in that it will make a very stable and strong model.

Safe me a seat up front, okay.

 

Cheers,

Thanks, guys for your  kind compliments!

 

Next steps was to make the keel, the stemson and the bob stay piece of the head. I have made the pieces from mahogany, planed with the thickness planer.

Hello Hartmut

 

Great progress on your ship, you sure have chosen a very different approach to build her, but she sure does look very strong, I like your Keel and Cut Water extension. It sure will be very interesting to see just what you are up to in finishing the hull. Keep up the great work and keep the pictures coming.

Aye, Mates!

 

Many thanks for your kind words and all the likes.

 

The  last weeks was not so much time for modelling the Golden Hind. There had been many interesting job. Thats ok. Here are some pics from the last days.

To finsh the wales in the bow I first did mount the upper and the lower wale. After this I use spacer blocks to mount the bow part of the wale in the middle

IMG_6224.thumb.jpg.c9bfc5d58478c9a1573cf72898294451.jpg

Next step was planking the space between the two lower wales and the stern.

Hello guys!

 

The summer 2018 was to warm to stay in the dockyard for modeling. It was a good time for barbecue, swimming and lazing around with old friends sitting in the garden enjoying an ice-cold beer. And last but not least there were to wunderfull journeys together with my admiral to the Lofoten islands in Norway and the Møn Island in Danmark.

 

In the last two weeks the planking was done. Here are some pics of the Golden Hind today.

After finishing the out side planking I have made the planking of the main deck. The question was how wide the planks must be. The only binding information I found in the report of the wreck of the Mary Rose. Here is the  plank width 50cm. This corresponds to 15mm in scale 1:33.

IMG_7021.thumb.jpg.2fa6281432f87c138206b11df37cdb5f.jpg

After this I planked the inside of the main deck and cut in the gun ports.

 

IMG_7034.thumb.jpg.ae6512b6adfd3fde32392789254abc23.jpg

Next job was to make the fore castle. There were quite a few parts to do. There are deck beams, mast tracks, anchor and foremast bitt and another hatch. An other question was how to paint the walls inside. Because I didn't find a research result I did paint teh walls with English Red.

But see yourself here are a few pics.

Hello guys,

 

the last two weeks I have made the Gallion. Here are some pics. First the gallions construction. It is made in the same way as I know it from the mediteranien ships like my Pinco Genovese.

Next job on the Golden Hind was to make the channels.

 

IMG_7639.thumb.jpeg.4ac10a1cde75ebeed65a685f3b1d131f.jpeg

I have made it from 2,5 x 2,5 mm bras,

IMG_7679.thumb.jpeg.cee20d802c3988e1dd4758ae6d4c3e99.jpeg

The gun port lids

For this parts I had to make a lot of parts

The parts of the hinges are from bras, burnished with Nerofor from Ballistol, a german Company

Next steps was to make the guns

At first I changed the brass into bronze by painting it with acrylic (old gold mixed with black)

IMG_7721.thumb.jpeg.3508806f238ff2979285c673759785a2.jpeg

 

And than the wooden parts.

Milling the side panels of the gun carriadges.

AtIMG_7753.thumb.jpeg.024b2052dce717dc471ee7b9248440a6.jpeg

At last for today I had to  modell 4 swivel guns for the stern. There were 4 guns from an older project. So it was easy to me to modify they into swivels.

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.
