Valeriy V

Cruiser Varyag 1901 by Valeriy V - scale 1:75

Recommended Posts

One can occasionally find wheel chucks on eBay under 'watchmakers lathe'. I was able to get two sets, large and small, at different times. However, often the ones you see are either rusted or beaten up.

Wow!

 

Valeriy, you have made great progress since I last looked in on this build.

 

Thank you Phil!

I tried to the best of my ability during all your absence. :) 

 

The photo shows a trash sleeve for ash and a pole of anti-torpedo protection.

Very nice work Valeriy, as usual. The thing about torpedo nets is how many ships carried them for... maybe 25 years? And as far as I know, they only did what they were designed to do once, at the Japanese attack on Port Darwin in 1904.

On the Varyag with networks it turned out even sadder. From the United States, the Varyag came only with poles. And the networks themselves appeared in Russia later, when Varyag was already flooded in Chemulpo.

Unfortunately talk of mutiny makes me think of the film Battleship Potemkin by Eisenstein.

By the way, in this film, in the role of the battleship Potemkin, completely different ships were taken. :)

Lovely work - Like Eberhard I would like to know how you did it?

Yes, Eberhard is right, the problem is solved with the help of a template.

First cut out of paper pattern of the inner contour. Then I scanned this template and put it on a computer in a vector program. Now it remains only to draw the part and solder it from brass.

Was rhere some kind of decking on this balcony? The holes look rather large to me. 

And like the others I am enjoying your metal skills.

Jan - see earlier discussion - I think it is another walkway for mutineers.

Jean, as long as I did not put the wooden rusternye lattice version from Keith may well exist. But if Kate insists on the execution version, then hanging on sailyard is still preferable. :)

Er vossiewulf I do not think the Japanese attacked Darwin in 1904 maybe 1942. The port you should refer to is Port Arthur, i think that was the name of the Russian base on the peninsula.

Yep you're right, I meant Port Arthur, the night time destroyer attack on the Russian fleet.
