Fécamp herring lugger by Javier Baron - FINISHED - Scale 1:200 - “Lougre harenguier”

Recommended Posts

I start a new model for my collection. It is a "Lougre harenguier" by Fécamp, based on the plans in the collection "Souvenirs de Marine Conservés" by Admiral Paris and the monograph of the "Bois-Rosé" of the Association of Friends of the Navy Museum from Paris. The system that I follow for the construction of the hull is that of disposable frames. This system of disposable frames I already showed it in my previous Build  Log of the Tartana de Liguria.

I believe that the photographs clearly show what the process that I carry out. I started this model about ten days ago, and the last pictures show the current status of the work in progress.

The equipment for the deck is practically finished. The aft structure is a support for the main mast when it was shot down at the time when the fishing was done, leaving only armed the mizzen mast and, sometimes, the foremast. Now touch the painting session before starting with the placement of masts and sails.

The masts are ready with all their equipment. I want to emphasize that the foremast incorporates a wind vane in its crowning. Another aspect on which I draw your attention is the network which appears in one of the two coves situated for this purpose behind the mainmast. In this case, I took the license to dye the net greenish, to accentuate the contrast. Although the model goes up the masts upright, on one of the photos that I present, the mainmast is shot, to see how the boat would be able to fish.

I have come to build miniatures after making larger scale models. Initially I did it for the problem of lack of space at home, but then I have become fond of small sizes because making a miniature takes me from a month and a half to two months, compared to the much longer time required by larger models. I do not know if there is a book or manual to make miniatures; I have been quite self-taught and have developed my own techniques. In the forum I have published other build logs of other miniatures: "tartana-ligure-by-javier-baron-finished-scale-1: 200", "brighton-hog-boat-or-hoggie-by-javier-baron-scale -1: 130 "and" two-miniature-moliceiros-by-javier-baron-scale-1: 110 "

About the NRG

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.
