EJ,

You are always so kind thanks indeed.

BUT - I can only claim very little with these sails

Yes: I bought the material, steeped the cloth in black tea, cut the paper patterns from kit provided sails, had an "idea" on how they should look  -- that's about it

 

Then went to the same sewing sewing school that I used for the Vasa sails. There I was totally immersed in my teachers step-by-step instructions

An YES without her complete assistance and that brilliant computer machine - well you know the rest haha 

 

Here are the step-by-steps that I used.

 

Cheers,

Michael,

Nice sewing instructions!

Not too late to stitch the top around the edges by hand :) 

I did this on my Vasa build, but yes, very time consuming Lol!

 

Is that your sewing machine? or is it from the sewing school you mentioned above?

It looks very complicated and expensive!!

 

Happy Thanksgiving!

Frank

Frank, Yes, I did go to the sewing class to use the machine - And yes - not cheap think about $1,400.00 USD

 

Lazy Saint - thanks again - for your very nice thoughts.

 

Been away for a week or so - need to get back to the shipyard......

Michael, just been through your build, lovely work.  I can see that you go that extra mile to bring out that detail which makes a model stand out. In my opinion that extra effort you make to perfect the details as much as possible, which is not easy when working on such scale, makes all the difference on the finished model. My next project after I finish my current one, which is still quite a long way, might be a cross section model.  I love the detail that can go into it.

Robert,

Thanks so much for your super kind thoughts - much appreciated. A cross section was/is, for me, a great exercise in new learning. How these ships looked, and how they were built from within 

has been lots of fun putting it together.  My intent was to only build a representative example - I now see many areas that are not actually correct - As we all know, we are our own worst critics. 

 

Your skill set would be great for a cross section, especially for adding details  - In fact, as you know there are several Victory cross-sections available. The DeAgostini Victory - seems to be the most accurate example. It would look great alongside  your superb current Victory build.

Hi Mates,

 

Minor updates – been away, and decided to also give the shipyard a rest, but did manage to do a bit more recently.

 

1) Attached the top sail to its yard along with adding needed blocks.

2) Attached the shrouds and deadeyes to the  lower platform

3) Now fixing into place the lantern wires.

note the backside is NOT “finished”. The ship will be fitted into a clear three sided case, hung on a wall and only be seen from the front and to some extent the sides; so not an issue.

Will, later, do some lateral detailing to even the side edges a bit more uniformly 

 

Adding needed extra lengths of electrical wires and then hiding them along the sides.  

Goop is perfect – it also serves as a sealant for the otherwise exposed connected wire twists. I thought of soldering the connections, but thought that it might create too much

resistance especially when all the wires will then attach to a single battery. AND did not want ro risk melting these super tiny wires. gggrrrrr. 

 

FYI: purchased all of the lights and wires from Evan Designs (one of our retail sponsors)

 

Here are a few images -- as always thanks for dropping by….

The Lazy Saint, thank so much for your very kind thoughts – so appreciated.

 

Continuing with the lantern wiring, all secured into place, and the nine lanterns still light – big relief.  Finished the back part of the base. The wires will be well hidden that way.

 

To do; need to unspool the red and green wires then segregate them within those two heat-shrink tubing bits. I may solder them together along with the on/off switch.

I will have a better sense of that after the case has been made.

 Next – Back to lower yard to attach all the needed clew, bunt, leech lines, and securing yard to mast before working on lower shrouds and ratlines.

That is indeed a tangle of wires, a situation I fully understand as the aft cabins of my S.R. build hide a jumble of them as well. Well done routing them in such a small space. I'm still trying to figure out how I am going to run the wires through the display case to the switch also. I am thinking about creating a tube through the cradle itself to get it below the case's base. Once there, I can turn them and run to the switch with relative ease.... :rolleyes:

Denis: thanks, as always for dropping by and your kind posts. The plan, as it seems “today”, will be the following; see pics (case will hang flush against a wall and have a wood top cover as well.) – Location HAS been determined – but Admiral has not yet been notified - Might become a diplomatic mess haha

 

E.J.: Yes, this is a new area for both of us. Mine will be simpler than yours. Your idea seems promising. BTW you were the one who made me think about adding lights, and, I think that you were following my Vasa you decided to try adding  sails as well (;-))) PS: they look great!

 

Patrick: Yes, initially making the lantern housings, adding the LED’s and so on were the easy parts. This current bit is what got me a bit nervous. If some lights did not work – it would have been too late to go back within the decks to do fixes. Got lucky – so far.

 

Cheers,

Masa, so nice - happy that you found the build to your interest - thanks indeed

 

Finished up this work for now - will determine proper length after base of case has been finished. Returning to the Vasa for some fixes.

 

As always thanks so much for dropping by, Likes and comments

 

Regards,

The Lazy Saint: Thanks yes the Rum was just perfect

Frank: The case will hopefully turn out more subdued on a wall - I intend to hang it in a corner area of our small bar area.

Richard: Thanks so much as well - Your work is beyond excellent so much appreciated - thanks so much for all the likes - yikes :imNotWorthy:

OC: My current skills and eyes for details were learned here following builders that are amazing, and in so doing

        trying to copy their skills, also trying to improve my work. Still learning - that never ends from what I'm told - haha

 

Taking a small break -re-installing the needed new stern lantern from my last build (Vasa) - almost done 

 

Cheers

Hi Mates,

The results (for this part of the build) are less than what I wanted to achieve; with the deadeyes attached to the shrouds do I really see my errors. The laniards are not tight enough “looking” – as they come through the deadeyes, and the ropes also angle out incorrectly. 

 

Yes, I could have used thinner ropes, but the next available size down looked too thin. After looking at many museum examples, I felt that the ropes that I used look just about right. So- first two images are what I should have done.

 

The other images reflect the work up-to-date: I’m very ok with the shrouds, middle and end seizings along with how the laniards are secured to their shrouds. PS: Some of the lower deadeyes are angled badly – when I attach the ratlines I’ll do slight shroud twists here and there.

Also mainsail clew, leech and bunt lines have been attached. Sheet lines to follow after topmast yard is finished up.

 

Thanks for dropping - as always – Stay well everyone.

Denis & Martyn -

 

Thanks for encouraging words. Now working on ratlines - bit slow but you know that these bits are time consuming, and need to be properly spaced along with so many Clover hitches,  - well not so stimulating either.  😐

Minor update;

 

Attached topmast and top gallant to lower main. All came out ok.

Finished topmast shrouds and ratlines.

Added Futtock staves, kit instructions precluded those, even for lower mainmast. Staves are simply tied to and glued to shrouds.

Installed Futtock shrouds as well to lower platform.

Next step is to attach all ropes, jeers, and parrel to lower main yard.

Topmast yard is almost done as well – will install it next.

 

Stay well everyone –
