Queen Anne Barge by JpR62 - Syren Ship Model - 1:24

Recommended Posts

Thanks to all the 'Likes'

The iron strap was glued. It is composed of three parts. The seams between each length was filled with some modelling epoxy.

The support bracket for the flag has also been glued and the seam filled with some colored lightweight wood filler.

The whole is sanded with fine-grit sandpaper and receives some touching up of paint. The bolts have been simulated.

I still have to apply some rust brown weathering powder to the strip.

It's time to begin to place the resin castings... and then to carve...

The Queen Anne cypher was glued on a scrap piece of 1/8" thick cherry. I used some Uhu stick's glue. When everything is dry and strong, I started by removing the residue of laser chart and rounding the edges using a sharp #11 blade.  I referenced the drawing found in the appendix of the instruction manual. The arrows added on the drawing are very useful to know the right direction of cutting.

Finally, I made a light sanding with a small piece of sandpaper. I have to hope that the separation with the backing piece goes well...

The carving of the next 6 pieces will probably be more complex but I will mark beforehand with a pencil the stop cuts on the drawings and on the carving blanks.

Very nice carving. I have a blank set and am going to try to carve mine as well when I get to that point. (The barge is next after I finish the pinnace). It is nice that the kit gives you the opportunity to try this out.

Thank you for your kind words and the Likes.

Chuck, not too difficult with a kit of this quality and more that motivates to work well.  😉 Just to not rush.

Michael,  yes, it's really nice to be able to learn about carving with great starting carving blanks. I did not plan to carve all the seven pieces, but I'm still going to try to do it. It's so pleasant and the carving blanks are so beautiful !

The Queen Anne cypher was separated from his backing piece (one night in the alcohol bath)  and glued.

I worked on the rudder. I followed the instructions strictly. Ah ! this manual ! What a pleasure !

I also added micro bolts of 0.4 mm.

The tiller was simply carved from a 1/16" x 1/16" cherry strip using a sharp #11 xacto blade.

After painting, the two pieces was glued.

Chuck, thank you for your nice comment. As I have been working theses past weeks on my other build (rigging of the canons of the Armed Virginia) and it took a long time..., he did not have a big step forward. I just finished to add the  two flag staffs... But I will start working on the oars quickly 😉

In parallel, I worked on the oars. The problem was to find a solution to repeat the regular shaping of the blades.

I built a little jig for this.

Just turn the blade halfway in order to have a regular angle on both sides.

Then the blades are slightly bent

All the four pieces are finally glued together

Following your build closely and it is such a great example.  I hope to be able to keep up the standards of our little “Queen Anne club” 😄

Time has passed since my last message.

As I have a very specific idea for the base and it requires the use of a table saw (which I have not yet ...), I move quietly on the sculpture of  the decorative carvings.

For construction of the base, the table saw (a Proxxon FET, shipping costs to Europe for a Byrnes table saw is unfortunately too high... 😪) will be delivered by Santa Claus, so I have time to finish the carvings quietly until Christmas.

Having finished the first 2 carvings, it was at the time of the setting up on the barge that I realized my stupidity 😲
The decorations must be symmetrical and should not be carved on the same side.... So I have to start one of her again ...

Sculpt_2.thumb.jpg.58045b4fed11c71c7956731cebcf6e89.jpg

The good news is that each carving had a small piece of broken and I could not find any more broken parts that I had yet set aside....
I was able to repair one of the broken elements by sacrificing the second carving (which anyway was unusable because carved on the wrong side) 😀

The second good news is that I reproduced the same mistake in preparing the second part but as I just started to sculpt one of them, I'll be able to glue the second piece on the right side. 😂

A second set of extra boxwood carving blanks should arrive shortly from Syren...

Hi,

Your carvings look superbe. I admire your patience, I must admit, I used the resin casting  ornaments. Yours look very good! It is definitely worth the efford. It will make a difference to the model.

Carving look great!  So glad someone else is carving the decorations.  I did get 2 extra sets to practice on and may need to buy some more before I get an entire set to use on the model.
