BRIGANTINE SCHOONER GIGINO by mhkash - FINISHED


Recommended Posts

Hello 

Just started building the Brigantine Schooner "Gigino", an Italian sailing Vessel from the Early 20th century. Actually I'm very fond of Schooners and Ocean Paddle Steamers as well, and I plan to  work on "Barquentine cote d'émeraude" in the near future, ((supposing that I find the Plan (I hope so)).

 

I'll follow the same technique, which is Double planking on Bulkheads. The first layer of planks will be 3 mm Balsa wood to get a tough body, while the second is 1.5 mm is to get a natural wood finish look. I guess it won't be easy to find a 1.5 mm Balsa wood with clear wood grain appearance and it would need some research to use coloring to get that look.

 

Thank you

Hello All

It is always like that, as I go on building, the model looks more better then it was at the beginning of the  process. At the Beginning it is like a junk to me :), however , I keep saying to myself ... no no , wait and be patient :):).. until the shape becomes similar to the Original :)..  here i did some work on the bow. hope you like it.

Thank you All.

Hello All 
sorry for not posting the updates for long time, I was away for a month and as i came back home, i decided to resume working on my model , here are are snap shots for building the Deadeye blocks.
first , i took a piece from balsa sheet, used sandpaper for getting the shape of a tube, cut the blocks , paint and wrap a wire around to maintain against cracks :) :)

Thanks

Hi

Here is some work on the rigging :), my problem is that I don't have a proper place to use while taking photo shots of my work, maybe I should do some work to prepare a suitable place at home for that ... meanwhile please excuse the photos quality  

Thanks
