Revenge by firdajan - FINISHED - Shipyard - CARD - (1577) 1:96


Recommended Posts

Hello my friends,

As the next ship I decided to build the famous english galleon built in 1577 Revenge, flagship of the sir Francis Drake during the Armada campaign in 1588 and mostly famous for his last fight with the spanish fleet in 1591 ( she was under command of Richard Grenville ).I think that´s no necessary to explain more about this ship :) 
Now I decided not to build the ship from scratch, but I decided for the Shipyard model of this ship, re-released last year.  I alredy built this ship fro mte 1st release in 2009 - it was my first ship model after a very long pausem and because I love ships from this age, after re - releasing of this model I had no doubt about the next ship in my collection
I started the build immediately after receiving of the kit. The frame of the ship is laser cutted, but there are no all of the necessary parts cutted, several of them you have to cut out personally. You can see it on 2,3,4 th picture. Until today I completed the frame including decks, today I´d like also to grind the hull ( it´s necesarry - some parts are printed with excesses an because of 90 degrees of angles ). There are some little mistakes in some parts as they were in the old one, but nothing special.

 

Here are pics.

Thanks Matti

 

Gun carriages for the interior are completed. In my opinion they are produced too complicated - you will see just front of them through gunports. Shipyard could produce them just from four parts only ( as in some later kits ). All of them are recoloured.

Upper parts of the hull shape will follow ;)

Thank you, friends :)

 

Stevinne: you´ve never seen? I ´ve build several ships, and all hulls of all of them are made from card.

Try to look here ( I just have a report from these ones ):

http://modelshipworld.com/index.php?/topic/1120-la-couronne-by-firdajan-card-1636-196/?hl=couronne

http://www.papermodelers.com/forum/ships-watercraft/7233-mary-rose-1511-1-96-a.html

http://www.papermodelers.com/forum/ships-watercraft/5326-ark-royal-1587-1-96-a.html

 

Some little problems appears. Because I built this ship some years ago, and there were some mistakes, I supposed they are solved in this reprint of the kit. They aren´t. Parts are just redrawed into Q3 format and textures are improwed in a better way.

After cutting out of upper parts of the first layer of the hull shell I tried to fit the on it´s place...and they didn´t fit ( as some years ago :angry: ) So I had to fit them by edges of decks, some gunports and by inner part of the railing on the aft. Then I had to slightly improve other parts of the railing too Now it looks quite good.

Then I start with the second layer of the hull shape - but now I was more careful and cut out it from the copy. The second layer has thickness cca 0,9 mm and it is possible to glue parts by edges and points - then they doesn´t work and the result is much more better.

 

Yesterday I start with oter parts of the second layer. As I maybe mentioned, I will grind the hull until smooth. For upper decorated parts of the hull I will use original parts for sides and bottom of the ship I will use strips of foil. I´ll try to make the planking effect

Thanks, Anja :)

 

So, my friends, I did some work on the ship last days ( sorry, mainly nights ). I glued on the rest of bottom parts of the hull shape, then used a little bit of putty mainly for contact places and drastically ground it up. Then I painted the hull with the glue for a card I´m using - the hull is stronger then.

 

Yesterday I finally glued the upper original parts. Who knows me, know, what will be next, I will improve the final part of the hull using strips of foil to make a planking effect.

Thank you, my friends, thank you,  for your replies :)

 

Matti: it´s not comparable - there are two different ways, how to get a hull of ship. Simply said - with wood is much more work, and in my opinion the wooden model is in absolutely other level than cardmodel. And the rest of ship - the work is the same in both ways, I´m also using wooden masts and yards, ropes, etc. BTW, if you know my older projects - I´m mainly the scratchbuilder, and I´m working with plans for wooden kits ( Mary Rose is the exemption - this is my own project simply absolutely from nothing ;) )

 

As I said, I start with the final surface. Pictures says more. Now I have to cut out the foil in places of gunports, and patine the hull because of planking effect. You will see.

btw, the last pictures is my collection ( just hull of the Golden Hind and Sovereign are missing :dancetl6:  )

Thank you, my friends, for your comments :)

 

I don´t have a lot of time this summer ( I´m working on absolutely different object ) but I made a little progress.

Bottom part of wales is glued, and I started the work on the galion. 

That´s all at the moment, I hope I´ll do some progress very soon.

Hello my friends,

 

I made some progress again :) 

 

The galion is finished. I had to make some improvements because of dimensions of parts, but it quite fits.

The rest of wales on upper parts is glued also ( so all of them are there finally ;) )

As the next part I´ve just started balcony - it will be reconstructed - I don´t like the graphics used by shipyard on this parts ( and, by the way, there is something different on the picture at the front of the kit :angry: ). As surface finish I used strips of foil. Now I have to produce all of ornaments ( letters E and R, fleurs de lis and flowers ). Why do not complicate some things:D  I tried to check dimensions of it with the ship - it fits.

Thank you, Matti.

Finally I finished works on absolutely different objects and now I have more time for the ship. During this period I did some progress: the balcony is finished, windows are done, stairs are done and the rest of railing on the maindeck is finished also.

Now I´m continuing in producing of another little parts :)

I made a little progress

Ledges aroun grating´s holes are slightly improved, and gratings are made I let the semi  - product for gratings cut out by laser to my friend here in Slovakia. I could to make them by myself, but these ones looks much more better ;) . All of channels are also cutted out. And, finally, yesterday evening I started the work on capstans ;) 

 

Enjoy pics.
