IL Leudo by SHIPSCAT (Jolene) - Mamoli - scale 1:34

Recommended Posts

No idea for the name but can see you did a proper job! Respect my lady and I mean it!

I cannot tell you the names for them as actually never sailed on a SAIL boat and those matters never interested me to know this name.

Could be that somebody here will tell you, sorry about that.

Hello Peter

 

Thank you my friend but I have to admit I had to do them twice, the first two I sanded the taper down too much, still not happy with the small one.

 

The large one is 20mm x 7mm, the small one is 10mm x 6mm.

Today I will glue some 8mm x 3mm dowel in the holes then drill some 3mm holes in the block things, then glue the tops into the blocks, shape the blocks then glue the large one on the mast and the small one on the bowsprit.

 

Thank you all for your comments and likes.

 

Jo.

Alright Jo!

You're partly to blame, you are doing such a good job on your wooden kit, I had to start a wooden ship myself!  Or at least part of one.  You will have to check it out.  HMS Blandford cross-section POF by SigEp Ziggy, 1/48 scale, in the 'from scratch or plans' section.

Hello Popeye

 

Thank you for your comments.

 

Bob was mainly talking about distance and weathering, but he made a comment about the deck, it was plain to me that he never read what I wrote, I said I finished the deck in DANISH OIL but he said I finished it in gloss varnish and it would be like a skating rink (ring), yes I know that the hatch lid straps should be an iron colour but I think the polished brass looks nice 👍.

 

I know you cannot see it in the video clips but in the video you can see the water reflecting on the white gloss paint and gloss varnish, if the Associazione Amici Del Leudo (Amici Del Leudo Association) painted and varnished her that way then that is Ok with me as they should know.

 

Anyway as everyone keeps saying it is my Ship.

 

Yippppppppeeeeeeeeeeee I have ordered my new ship kit it is about 500mm long x 700mm high x 110mm wide, should receive it on Monday or Tuesday.

 

Giorni felici

 

Jo.

Sorry, I read what you wrote, but I misunderstood it.  You wrote that you were "...just wondering what I should finish the masts with, gloss varnish or Oil like I have done with the deck." I thought you'd finished the deck in "gloss varnish or oil." My mistake.

 

You asked and I answered. I am not a fan of glossy anything on small scale models. That's just a matter of taste. "Your mileage may vary." as they say. :D

Jo,

Have you posted anything on your new purchase?

Your shipmate, Shane

Hello shipmate Shane

No I have not started it yet, I had to go to the hospital to have an x-ray on my back, it is hurting like hell.

 

Will try and do something on my IL Leudo today.

Dear Jo, sorry to read you went for X-ray too.

Hope for you it is not something serious as could be anything from infection to kidney stones that are walking around as that also feels like pain in your back.

Anyway, wish you a quick recovery and take care about yourself there,

Peter xxxxxxxxxxx

Hello Popeye, Peter and Shane

 

Thank you all for your concern about my back pain.

I have to go and see my GP on Monday to see what he will say about the x-rays I had taken at the hospital; I do hope it is a pulled muscle, you all know cats have 9 lives well 1 down 8 to go ha-ha.

Hello all.

 

I have made the mast and bowsprits, I still have to finish sanding them down, I have also tapered the spars (if that is what you call them).

 

I will coat them up with varnish when I have finished sanding them down.

 

On the bowsprit I have a brass ring that goes on but it is not in the kit.

 

My Yawl build someone said replace the white rope, so I will order some for the IL Leudo also, I may order some more wood.

Jo,

I hope you can look at your work and say 'Damn I'm good!', because you are!

 

Your other build is the Yawl? Posted any photo of the box or kit?

 

Try to find the right size brass tube, I haven't seen anyone do a good job wrapping and soldering yet.

 

Proud to be your friend, Shane

Hello Shane

 

Wow thank you my friend for them very kind and nice words.

But I consider myself to be just below average builder, I have made lots of mistakes that I don't show people ha-ha, but I have to say that I am not that bad at building plastic models.

 

My other build is a POF and going what I have read POF's are very hard to achieve a good finish, so I will have to get the Kitty Litter tray out as when I get worried I tend to go to the toilet lots of times ha-ha.

 

Your friend Jo xx.

Jo, Jo, Jo...

 

I think your work is great, but if you want me to be more critical, then I would, at the very least, give you ABOVE average scores.

 

Don't be so hard on your self and build to your own satisfaction. Don't forget the fun part of building is sharing.

 

Shane

You'll never built the 'perfect' model because there are always things to improve. What I enjoy about this hobby is building each model (Plastic, wood, whatever.) to the best of my ability and then building the next taking that learning on board and building that kit to the best of my ability. ☺️

 

Like everything in life, the more you learn, the more skilled you become.

 

For your first wooden kit your doing a very impressive job and I really appreciate your willingness to share your experience with the rest of us.

Hello all.

 

Thank you for your comments on being  bad,average or good at model building.

 

Maybe I am setting my sights way higher than my skills allow me to achieve, I am not sure if it is the lack of tools or more likely the lacking of knowledge.

 

Anyway I do thank you all for your support.

Hello all.

 

Just a small update, I have started to lash the mast things together.

I have to say this is getting exciting ha-ha, the one at the top and bottom are my first attempts at lashing, the three in the middle look a lot better, well to me they do.

Onwards and upwards as they say, you cannot keep this little kitty cat down now ha-ha.

 

I have to thank Tom for the link for the knots, it has been a big help, thank you.

Hello all

 

Blue Pilot, thank you, I will forgive you for coming to the party so late, also very pleased you find my log entertaining, please don't be a stranger.

 

Jo.

 

Mark, thank you also but it must be my sewing skills ha-ha, I have just looked at the first one I did (inside one) and the ropes cross each other not that good is it, I am not taking it off as I gave them a wash of 50/50 wood glue and water.

Are well 7 lives left now, will have to take more care or this kitty cat will be a goner.

 

Jo.

I wouldn't worry about the error.  We are all super critical of our own work and when your ship is complete it will disappear into all the other details.  We can drive ourselves nuts being supper critical of our own work.  I have learned somethings are worth fixing even if it means back tracking but sometimes you also have to learn when to say that's good enough.  Otherwise,  we would never finish!  I think you are off to a great start and welcome to the nut house :piratetongueor4:

Damn Girl

Don't be like that Shane, I cannot help it if I am good can I hahahahahaha (that is a JOKE).

 

Yes 7 more lives left to go my friend, but hey that is just for this build my next build the cat god said I can go back to 9, but I did ask cat god to let me have 18 but this loud meow meow came back and said meowlene only 9 that is all you are getting.

 

Anyway I have to admit that the first one I did do it three times and still mucked it up haha, but after that they are not that bad even if I have to say that myself.

 

After I have finished them it will be time to turn the old girl over and repaint the hull.

 

Thank you all for the likes.

Hello all

 

Back again with another small update ha-ha, well you cannot keep a good cat down.

 

I forgot last time that at I had to make a small hook thing out of some 2mm x 4mm walnut, it goes on the end of the spar, I think it is for a rope to go round so you can move the spar from side to side, it was fun to make.

 

I also have finished all the lashings, I just loved doing that, I hope you all like what I have done.

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.
