Santisima Trinidad by md1400cs – OcCre - 1/90 cross section (bashed) FINISHED


Recommended Posts

Hi mates,

 Finished up the tackles for the gun doors, added lights, a stair, and installed mid-gun deck; need to add knees, a couple of buckets as well as one more sponge pole to lower gun deck. Then, onto the outer hull timbers, and the mid-deck gun openings.

 

Regards,

federicoaa,

 

It's actually very easy. 

 

Using painter’s trim tape coil the rope.

Add a film of CA Gel

This will “lock” the spooled coil. And the gel will not bleed through to what will serve as the topside of the coil.

 

I then used small beads of Gorilla wood glue to secure the coil in place on the deck. Here are so photos from my previous build log (just added the comments)

Hi Michael

 

Just found your build log for the first time (had a long break due to work in our new house)

I noticed the same high quality like with your Vasa.

 

You got me very good idea's which I also might use, I am planning to make an Cross Section of an Dutch 17Century ship from scratch.

Log to follow during 2019.

Hi mates,

 

Just catching up - have been away for a month + Back to a routine now - so will have more time in the evenings to stay current as well  -- Sorry about the late like thank you's - always so appreciated. 

Hope to get back to this build soon. Again thanks for still being interested in following, looking in - etc....

 

Cheers,

Hi Mates,

 

Shipyard has been closed for a bit longer than expected. Minor update but a big one for me -- the yard is actually open again.

 

Beyond getting involved in some other outside work, turned out that it had also finally come time to no longer avoid fixing my right wrist. So four weeks after of a carpal tunnel procedure, fingers can now feel as though I never had that issue in the first place. Enjoying full use of right hand.

=================

So what to do with mid-gun deck? Decided not to completely rig four more guns and carriages, but instead do a minimalist look at how some sleeping and eating was achieved on gun decks. Mid gun deck seemed the right place. This would also keep a continued open look to this cross section.

I had some leftover material from sails - I have already finished them for this build; Incorporated a scrap to fashion a hammock. Pics are self explanatory so minimal “how to” – also added a table – many of which were placed between gun carriages - as you all know during meals.

Will add lanterns as well as several other details.

Also considering adding one rigged carriage, but one that is in a “stored” sideways position inside the deck – have not located any drawings on how that should look. (Not even sure that this is correct?)  Hmmm –here are a few updated photos

 

As always thanks for your continued interest in this semi-part time log.

 

Cheers,

Hi Mates,

 

Thanks so much for the nice comments/likes much appreciated.

Sort of in a quandary – Don’t quite know what I want to do with the upper gun deck?? As it is, the mid gun deck is sort of empty.

So in the interim I started the main (weather deck) will continue with outer and inner hull side planking, add the gun openings and so on.

Will leave the upper gun deck unglued for now. This will give my eye a better perspective on how to add inside details - tempted to add two smaller fully rigged guns to one side of the upper gun deck

Main deck will be probably fully planked along with four rigged guns.

Want to leave out some of the inner and outer side hull planks in order to see the upper futtock frames (as I did in the hold) just thinking….

 

PS: kIt provided deck was perfect as a template.

 

As always,

 

Cheers

Continuing work on upper and main decks, but decided to revisit the hold. I always thought that it was too empty. It at least needed a few barrels. Did not like the look of straight out-of-the-box barrels so played with them for slight visual improvements, oak stain, then built a small framing. Holds were certainly filled with such barrels but this gives a bit more to the hold’s visual emptiness.

 

As always thanks for looking in.

Hi Michael,

I had seen how to make a barrel in a Log. But I don't remember where it is.

10 pieces of wood are cut as a longitudinal triangle profile. They are assembled radially. Then they are shaped on a lathe as a barrel. The lower and upper sections of each piece of the ten are narrow and the middle abdomen is wider. Then a circular cap is fixed.

Ferit - yes I have also seen how to make barrels visiting a log over at Scratch Ship Model - I may play around with building one barrel

for the main deck attaching it much as you did on your Berlin. Not sure that I can add the spicket as you did on yours - brilliant work.

 

Patrick - thanks indeed, Though I did intend on "opening it up" as I had seen so well done with other cross sections.

Hi Mates,

 

Update; decided to leave mid-gun deck as it was - just a hammock and a table, added lanterns and gun door tackle rigging.

The upper gun deck will have fully rigged carriages - towards the stern - as I did for the lower gun deck, but only two. Glad to see that all of the installed lanterns are still working.

 

Need to still do lots of detailing on outer hull planks along with trimming back bits of wood here and there (on my list)…

 

Seeing mistakes that I’m not too happy about. Big one, for me, is adding wales without first installing outer hull planks under the wales. I knew better but just did not think it through. Also still learning how to correctly place and pace tree nails at intended (correct) locations on floor planks. Will probably remove and redo the upper deck. It will be fully planked. What I did is not right. Grrrr – fun fun fun

She is looking very nice to me as well!

 

I also think that you have installed the wales correctly. In all of the cross section drawings I have seen of planking layouts, the wales are the planks for that area and do not sit upon other planks. I am far from an expert on this and would be greatly interested to know if this ship was possibly built different.

Frank, and L.J.,

 

Thanks for your thoughts - much appreciated. Turns out the wales were correctly attached. Got confused looking at the OcCre instructions (it appears as if the wales were glued above hull planks). See first photo. Then looked for correct info and, yes E.J. you are indeed correct - thanks for posting - Second photo is a good one. Also to improve my vocabulary :D Frank, yes the lights are a nice addition - came out nicer than I expected. thanks for the nice compliment.

 

============================

 

Last three photos ARE where I made mistakes. Hard to believe that I did not measure correctly having the OcCre  deck template as a guide. Easy fix. And in any case I was going to remove all the deck planks in order to recut and treenial them more accurately.

All good. Thanks as always for your kind advice.

 

Cheers,
