Bounty by Backer - Revell - plastic scale 1/110 semi scratch and extra detail

Recommended Posts

Thanks for the likes and nice comments.

 

painting.

The last time I painted a plastic ship model was in the early eighties. I only have experience with military models on a 1/72 scale

My painting technique will therefore probably be different from other plastic ship models on this forum.

 

First a base layer of diluted light gray over the entire model.

Here we go (deck first).
The deck gets a few layers of diluted sand yellow (yes sand yellow) Then a dry brushing of light gray and white. And a few wash layers of diluted light gray

IMG_20191202_192124.thumb.jpg.0bb736f708bb890d5cf7c0ec9d8a2308.jpgA layer of reddish-brown for the parts on and around the deck. And a helm for the rudder.

Black color  on the kitchen vent and part of the windlass. And a drybrush with sand yellow.

The dead eyes.

 

I had 3 options :
The one from the kit (bad idea). Buy new ones (cheating). Or, make them myself.

A first prototype is made.

(On this photo (left of the dedeye) is an error. One support of the railing is too short, this has now been restored)

 

IMG_20191211_160420.thumb.jpg.09a24c8666820cad747437de42c0d275.jpg

 

Making discs and glue them together (3 discs for each dedey).

Drilling holes 0.7 mm and attach iron wire to them.

IMG_20191212_134607.thumb.jpg.f68f9912ec446c76a3673e763f6e75ac.jpg
And place them on the channels.

IMG_20191212_135636.thumb.jpg.0ff675117c70a331eb383dbe41f61ecc.jpg
Made some stretched sprue for the extra details.

All dedeyes on the channels are ready :Whew:

Painting and weathering of the hull.

 

Painting the ded eyes and chains matt black 

IMG_20191214_114203.thumb.jpg.750ab8f9a9ad87074e5cf8bbd762cc90.jpgIMG_20191214_114212.thumb.jpg.267d2da555413adbdff6a2cb1bf2b91e.jpg

 

washings with diluted light gray, some rust on the chains and a dry brushing of dark gray on the ded eyes.

 

Given that the entire hull and deck are "weathered", the copper sheeting cannot be look new either.

So, how does weathered red copper look like?
No idea at first, then I remembered some rounds of ammunition that I once found near the house where I grew up.
To make a small river deeper, mud had been dug out, and there lay a clip with 5 rounds
Presumably remains of WW 1 or 2.

IMG_20191219_182407.thumb.jpg.3eb596a6c279c18ec5978fb5c26017de.jpg Felix has no idea what's going on;)


At first sight,
It looks pretty much the same
For now I leave the collor this way

IMG_20191219_183002.thumb.jpg.be3bf369f4e97392b7dc62f82d09c643.jpg

used paints :

White wash

IMG_20191218_195004.thumb.jpg.5b9ec4e78749f49e7b273292c628c68e.jpg

And 3 green collors

IMG_20191218_201149.thumb.jpg.61394804dd4c927112bfc72d61ec21bd.jpg

Cannons are glued on the deck

A plastic plate is glued to the bottom. 

This is so the cannon is glued with the plate and not with the wheels on the deck.
That way you won't see any glue residue on the deck.

Rigging the cannnons, the helm and the anchor cables on the deck .

 

Cannon rigging in a 1/110 scale... Stressful to me (in my opinion) it took me more then 1 hour for each cannon.
IMG_20191221_162243.thumb.jpg.2f23ac071f8878e09306cbde06ffa6dd.jpgIMG_20191221_170832.thumb.jpg.d92dc8d16c7ac7500a3f992911501967.jpgIMG_20191222_151703.thumb.jpg.1caccf7e9c893201a48a4dc57bd8aece.jpg

IMG_20191223_190200.thumb.jpg.80a27454ebe61f0b50b9b243d9eb76ed.jpg

anchor cabels.

To get these flat on the deck they are glued on deck with ca glue. Carefully applied to a toothpick.

Hiding the ugly interior under a "tarpaulin"

Ingredients a piece of paper tissue and lots of CA glue

IMG_20191227_182405.thumb.jpg.0e522fe76819d837a45dfd33b022d840.jpg
The tissue is cut to size, pushed in the right place and completely covered with CA glue.

IMG_20191227_184223.thumb.jpg.36f89217eb016e6ce4492b65c7fc10d1.jpg

If you do this the first time.
Practice first on another piece The first time the tissue sticks everywhere it should not stick.

Making the masts and the bowsprit.

This is more work than expected. Unusable parts are removed and replaced. Holes that are not needed are filled and sanded.

 

Bowsprit before

Finishing and installing the masts

After washing with soap and water and drying, a primer is applied.

Level the hull in cross length.

Check whether the main mast stands straight (90°)
with a "schietlood" (translation English : plumb bob ??) Just a simple piece of rope and a weight.

Masts and bowsprit are in place. And are drying for 24 hours.

Started with the standing rigging. The plastic schrouds, deadeyes and blocks from the kit are useless.

 

My deadeyes are home made.

The blocks are leftovers from an Heller kit (Soleil Royal) I built this model a long time ago and kept the leftovers in my parts box. (Lucky me !!)

 

Rigging is done as good as possible.  Scale 1/110 is rather small for my fingers.

Standing rigging update

Slow progress. Some parts of the rigging has been done 2 times.
The first time bad, and the second time a little better.

You mean you didn't make your own rope as well!!!!! Shame on you.:D 

 

This build became very impressive a long time ago, now it is becoming a little jewel! One would never guess it's humble beginnings.

Incredible!  If it were built right out of the box, we wouldn’t really know what potential there would be with all the intricate modifications you have done.  I could imagine this one in a museum.  With this build log, you give me inspiration for continuing to do modifications with my own plastic ship build!

Pulling up my chair to learn something from you if you don't mind. Amazing work and great use of scrap plastic to "pimp" the old kit . I like your copper hull idea in particular.

 

Looking forward to seeing more of your progress :)

Patrick, I discovered your Bounty log this week and this morning I took the time to read it through from the beginning. Wonderful what you are doing with this plastic kit. I am joining the followers list.

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.
