HMS Bounty by Auger - Constructo - 1:50

Recommended Posts

Been a looong time since I’ve posted here, but I thought I’d drop in and give an update on my build. I recently dusted her off, found a spot on the work bench and am continuing the build. It’s slow going, just a piece or two a night between diner and bed, but I’m starting to see the slow progress. Excuse the mess, we’ve recently moved and I haven’t arranged everything yet:

Yes, I’ve taken good care of it during these idle years. I’ve always kept it wrapped in foam sheets on a formed styrofoam base and strategically placed in the garage to avoid any damage. I’m happy to be continuing and look forward to finally finishing it.

Just some quick photos of where I’m at with my Bounty build. I’ve oiled the hull and started on some of the ground tackle. I apologize for the cluttered workspace. I’m confined to a 4’x2’ bench in a jail cell sized room in the corner of the basement. Wish I had something like the workrooms I’ve seen in some of the other build logs here.

Been working on the masts. I went ahead and built my own mastheads to make it look a little better than just a dowel; not totally done yet, still have a few parts to add. The “iron bands” on the masthead are thick cardstock paper which I also used to back the wood battens. Had to do that because the battens kept snapping when I was trying to file-in the slots for the bands. It was easier to cut the slots out of the paper backing.
