Hi everybody,

 

If my english is correct, then I have just finished the gunwale and the bulwark.

 

I believe gunwalle is the top part of the bulwark... there where a sailor could lean his hands and look over the sea the sun setting into the horizon.

The Galley is on the gun deck. Had to take her with a winch on the ship and then push her on rollers in position. Now I have to prepare the roof of the galley with the ducts and the cooling panel.

The roof of the galley is installed. Its a watertight copper panel, that was filled with water. Thee two copper ducts of the stove were passing through this cooling system, in order to keep the stove radiation as low as it was possible.

 

I hope you can see the water...🦆.. I have poured in.Its a vallego scenery liquid.

Main deck on the go. Belaying pins and tables, ramhead of the fore mast.... and ofcourse always dos and redos!

 

The copper of the galley cooling panel, went dark. It seems the cooper got the humidity of the vallejo scenic water.

 

So a new panel was remade.

I like the vibrant colours, what kind of propulsion did you install, for the use of a helmsman ;)

Thank you very much... its the vallejo paints. "Helmsman", is it the wrong word for referring to the man on the wheel? Propulsion on sailboats is the wind power!😊

Helmsman is good, but you don't need one without the sails if you are missing another form of propulsion.

Stem fnished. Lot of work.... lots of fan. The figurehead in place, the Lion with the coat of arms, the net, the gratted floor and ofcourse on top the two catheads (anhor windlasses). Sorry for the letters on the pic, its the cathead in greek... καπόνι! (kaponi)

@Louie da fly thank you Steven. Yes on the stern and also on the stem,in the lions hands. You must imagine, the scale is 1/89, so it was impossible to succeed  more sharpness. The stem coat of arms  is bigger, so its sharper than the one the lion holds.

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.
