Welcome to the Confederacy Clan. You are doing very well. Started mine 8/9/16.

Getting ready to paint the inside of the bulwarks.

Hi,

The "Checkerboard" floor in Great Cabin is noticed as optional (page 78 into instruction manual) : what's about historic reality of that ? Was it really present as a wooden floor, or only as less expensive painted overground coat ?

 

How could be installed the last cannon at war ?

 

Thanks

 

Regards

 

Christian

Hi Christian,

 

Looking good.

 

The chequered floor was usually a painted canvas, however the ‘Great Cabin’ was often decorated according to the Captains own taste.

Greetings CRI, have been admiring your work on the Confederacy. I'm just a few steps ahead of you on mine.

It may be camera angle or my old eyes but it appears that your sheer line sweeps up to the top of the

stern frames. 

You may want to check that alignment against the plans to see if further construction of the stern and galleries will

line up.

Regards, Harley

Salut,

 

J'ai terminé les corrections de hauteur des pavois, préceintes et sabords de la batterie haute de l'arrière, 
et je lui trouve ainsi un aspect plus élancé malgré la faible diminution de hauteur

 

J'en ai profité pour affiner au reste le haut des allonges, opération difficile avant le démontage

 

Conjointement, continuation du lattage de la batterie principale, où j'arrive symétriquement au contact
des bordures (quelle chance !)

 

Amitiés,

 

Christian

Hi,

 

Corrections height of bulwarks, gunports and upper wales back side of Confederacy finished, it gives her a best look

 

At the same time, planking first gun desk has progressed, symetricaly with each merge (I'am a lucky fellow... !) 

 

Regards

Hi,

 

Basswood or wood of lime tree does'nt like stormy weather with relative humidity from 40% to 60 % in a few hours every day...

 

It's perhaps best for barbecue... :D

 

Regards,

 

Christian

Hi,

 

What do you think about this floor project fot great cabin ? 

 

No circular saw, my project can be realised with cutter, even with laser print photo paper, like an ancient painted canvas 

 

The checkerred template of the kit don't agree to me : it makes some low cost kitchen effect at my taste...  :D 

 

Others ideas ?

 

Regards

 

Christian

Hi,

 

Final choice is between three versions (look at the joined pics)

 

I have actually any preference...

 

3rd version is seems "english fashion" else the two others, but probably less visible under numerous desk accessories

 

Regards,

 

Christian

Hello Christian. I very much enjoy following your build. You do excellent work! 

 

My choice would be the second photo in the post above. It is an interesting design, and the more muted colors seem to work well. 

 

Regards, 

Archie

Hi,

 

My latest : a ground floor all like desk, except length of pieces

 

Such a great cabin floor would be the less expensive project, and most easy of all... 

 

Regards

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.
