Queen Anne Barge by Rustyj - Syren Ship Model - 1:24

Recommended Posts

Thank you OrLiN. Welcome aboard. 

 

The inboard planking has been completed. Thankfully Chuck had the forethought to supply extra

planking pieces at the bow. It is a hefty bend and old hammer hands broke the first plank.

You can see the planking is not flush with the cap rail and forms a bit of a rabbet. You also can see pieces

added that do go all the way to the cap rail. These form a wider spot for the thole pins.

Well it's back to painting, painting, painting. :D

Very nice....and yes that is the exact reason I added extras.  Same is true for the decorative panels.....you should be almost ready to add those too.  You are moving along relatively quickly which is good.   I see a Pegasus Cross Section Rusty beta test in the works for you!!!;)

That sounds great! I've had some time off so I was able to spend more time on the barge. Gotta go back to work tomorrow though. :default_wallbash:

I actually waited til I had the flag staff so I could make sure it was straight when gluing it in.  Thank goodness it takes a while for Titebond to cure which allows you to move the flag around while its in the step so you can get it straight.

Here are laser cut boxwood panels that need adding.

Again Chuck added extras because the are VERY DELICATE. Old hammer hands only broke

a couple but it was nice to know there were plenty of spares!

The inboard painting is done unless I make a boo boo. Next I'll be cutting out the printed friezes and inserting them in the panels.

The kit provides the various friezes all sized and ready to be inserted into the panels.

Chuck describes using a glue stick to adhere the friezes. As I didn't have a glue stick I

diluted some white glue, used a paint brush to apply it to the area inside the panels

and then gently press the frieze in place.

Next I will paint and install the bow flag support brace and the step.

Looks beautiful Rusty, those friezes really pop out against the inboard colour.

Incidentally my kit arrived today and altho’ I won’t start it until Cheerful is nearing completion, your log will provide me with a useful reference guide. :)

Hi All,

 

I've been MIA for a bit. Vacation, family and good weather have kept me away from the workshop and MSW.

Well I've made it back to the shop for a bit of an update.

 The forward flag support bracket has been added as well as the step.

Here are the kit supplied laser wood carvings

and the kit supplied resin castings

and the optional resin castings

and the weathering powers to use on the resin castings.

Both the laser cut and resin pieces are great. I did get the additional resin casting just in case I either mess up the carving or get lazy!

They look so good it will be hard to duplicate.

This will not come as any new revelation to anyone but Chuck is a great carver. Me not so much. :D

I've played with the boxwood laser cut carvings and though they are really great I slaughtered them.

Soooooo I am using Chucks optional resin castings. They required very little clean up.

Chucks used weathering powders and I did the same. You can see the results below. 

You also can see there's still a lot of clean up and touching up needed.

Thank you all for your kind words and likes It's very much appreciated.

 

This is how I did it which fairly closely follows Chucks instructions.

After any flash was removed the resin pieces were washed in a mild dish soap and warm water.

The first power applied was "gritty yellow".  Then "highlight white" followed by "dirty brown".

The powders are applied with a clean brush. Small amounts at a time.

If I had too much of one color I'd just alternate powders until I was satisfied with the look.

Once I was happy with the result the pieces were sprayed with two light coats of Krylon clear fixative. 

 

Thanks for stopping by!

While waiting for my barge kit, I ordered two sets of the boxwood carvings to practice on and I certainly needed practice. Of the 4 Queen Anne monograms, I murdered three before I finally got a feel for what I was doing. The fourth turned out rather well.  The carvings for port and starboard where a little tricky but between the two sets I have a set for the barge.  I took photos of my trials and tribulations.  I am also planning on covering all the moldings with real gold leaf and I plan on documenting that process as well.  With a little luck, I hope to put up a “mini” build log for the entire process. It’s been pretty challenging, but I’ve begun to develop a whole new skill set.  Something which drew me to model ship building in the first place.  I’ve posted a photo of the monogram below.

 

Best,

John

Do you mean the Gold Foil Leaf or Gold Leaf Paint?

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.
