Oliver Cromwell by canoe21 - 1:48 scale

Recommended Posts

                                                                        Hello ShipMates

Just a little rebuild today. We have looked at our last 3 pictures posted a couple of days ago and all though they are rather large they do show that the door window Muttons are just to big and rather poorly installed. Well today we could not take it any longer so the little fellows and I remover the doors and replaced the door window Muttons, not perfect as yet but we feel that they are much better and closer to scale, now we can continue with the construction of the forward Bulkhead,                                                                 ENJOY.

Regards   Lawrence

Good evening Lawrence

 

she is coming along a treat, nice rework on the doors

 

are you going to add any any paint to  highlight the details or leave natural wood colour?

Thank you Kevin, Yes the more I looked at them the more I disliked them, so it had to be done. No paint in this area so it will be just oils and varnishes,                                                                                 ENJOY.

Work continues in the Old Ship Yard as the little fellows and I have completed and installed the forward bulkhead. We found this one much easier to build. Now we have the dividing bulkhead between the Masters sleeping area and Steerage. To make installing this easier we have only friction fitted the two doors on the starboard side,                                                     ENJOY.

The little fellows and I have completed all of the bulkheads in the aft section of our Oliver Cromwell build. We had to remove one of the doors from the Great Room to the Masters sleeping area. We have also notched out this bulkhead for the 3 over head beams. These are only dry fitted and tomorrow we will install this divider bulkhead leaving the beams loose for now to give us access to install the canons and a bed place in this very tiny area.

On a different note our order of the Natural Pear Wood arrived here today, this wood looks very good to me and hope it will bend as easily as our test strips did a few weeks ago. It will be nice to work again on the bigger parts of our ship,                                                ENJOY.

                                           Hello Ship Mates

Work continues in the Old Ship Yard but at a very slow pace as there is so many other things to life to keep the little fellows and I away from the Old Ship Yard. However, this week the little fellows and I have planked the Lower Counter in Boxwood. We also started the outer hull planking above the Whales also in Boxwood. We had planed on planking the outer hull below the Whales also in Boxwood, however we could not get these planks to bend into the Lower Counter, at the Bow area we had no trouble at all. So we decided to use Natural Pear Wood below the Whales, as it is fairly easy to bend,                                      ENJOY

Regards   Lawrence

Lawrence, sorry the boxwood below did not work out but I think the contrast of the boxwood and the pear looks real good,

excellent work as always.

 

Ed

Hello Ed, I thank you very much for your visit and also for your very kind words. Yes we did break up quite a few planks trying to get that very sharp bend at the Lower Counter in Boxwood, The Pear wood bent much easier and I do like the contrast between the Boxwood, the Walnut Wales and the Pear wood below the Wales,                                                          ENJOY.

Regards   Lawrence

Lawrence:  I think pear below the wales looks good. I did that on my 1:93 scale cross section and I like the effect

 

 

Hello Dave, I thank you very much for your visit and for your very kind words. Yes the Natural Pearwood seams to be working out quite well for us, and like you say I do like the contrast between the different types of wood. 

Very nice job you have did on your Cross Section, I must give you a WELL DONE on your completion. You have given me a lot of ideas for my Oliver Cromwell build, Thanks.                                                                                         ENJOY.

                                                                                        Hello Ship Mates

 

These last two weeks have been very difficult for my Admiral and myself as our son Dennis lost his fight with cancer on 02 December. I have not felt like working very much in the Old Ship Yard very much. But one dose get bored with twilling one’s thumbs for hours at a time.  So, I would try to forget just a little by doing a little work on my Oliver Cromwell and it did help a little.

The little fellows are just as involved in thought as I am, but we did complete the lower hull planking on the Starboard side and add a couple of natural pear planks on the Port side to just below the first set of cut outs. A second set well continue just below these.

I wish to thank all of my Ship Mates for all of your support in these very difficult times for my Family and my self, Thank you all very much.

Regards   Lawrence

I am so very sorry to read of your loss.

 

I hope you don't mind my saying that it may take some time before you feel like working on your build... take as long as you need... we will wait.

 

I lost almost a year as every time I tried to distract my thoughts from something that happened to me I felt like smashing everything I touched.  So I stayed away until it was safe.  I have wrtten too much.

 

Hello Allan, My Admiral and I appreciate very much your very kind words that help so much in these days of kiose. I have found it very hard to just sit around and think. But when I tryed the Old Ship Yard every thing that I did never seamed good enough, but passible I think. I still need more clean up on the outer lower hull, Thanks.

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.
