La Jacinthe by Kortes -1:42 scale - French schooner

Recommended Posts

Treenails of the deck.

 

Unfortunately, I didn’t master the make using the syringe needle, after a few failed  tries I gave it up… I haven’t had enough patience. I decided to sharpen on the grinder. After some try-outs I opted for the pear tree instead of the toothpicks. D=0,6 mm.

Looks good. Will you put a long handle on the mini-drill? My first 'serious' model was a 64 gun ship, fully planked at 1:48 scale. All the treenail holes were drilled by hand using a pin vise. I'd never do that again!

My greetings, dear Dave.

Before the beginning of the building I realised the necessity of such instrument.Unfortunately, to my point of view, the PROXXON instruments are unreasonably expensive . That is why I have found in the internet photo of such instrument and asked my brother, who works with metal, to make me one. As a result I have two machines in one and it was a lot cheaper.

I finished my work on the 23 of September 2016. I had a photo report of the work, I decided to post it, maybe it could useful to someone.

My best regards, Alexander.

Michael, quote is from the first post of this build log. The man's work is phenomenal :imNotWorthy: but if he was that quick I would swear he had help from a host of wood fairies!

Thank you very much my dear colleagues.

Dear Michael.
I have a pause in building "SPERWER" - I'm making sails. That's why I decided to show on the forum my last finished work Unfortunately I don't belong to the masters who work quickly. Once, I have apent two weeks of my vacation to make nailing.

Basically I’ve finished nailing.

I finally got around to overhang. It is painted, taffrail is covered with pear tree and black hornbeam. I made it with a small margin, when the enclosures are set I will finish the taffrail.

Kortes, thank you for clarifying, this log for me I am a bit short on grasping things sometimes, and missed the information in the earlier post.

Keith It is good to know that someone was paying attention to the fine print and not just drooling over the pictures 😉

 

Thank you Kortes for taking the time to put this build log together after the fact. There is a certain benefit to being able to follow along at a measured pace.

I would like to present my attempts in making cap rail taffrail.

I waited a long time to approach it, finding the right technology, finally setting for the plank bending  with further refining.

To start, I had to prepare a pattern, and as I had to bend the lath with a big margin(the original size 1,5:22 mm), I had to make reinforced fixators.   

I have made two samples, refining them while adjusting them in place.

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 provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model shipcraft.

The Nautical Research Guild puts on ship modeling seminars, yearly conferences, and juried competitions. We publish books on ship modeling techniques as well as our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, whose pages are full of articles by master ship modelers who show you how they build those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you what details to build.
