ROYAL CAROLINE 1749 by Jeronimo - FINISHED -1/48 scale

Recommended Posts

The mirror, as well as on both sides window bay window

with its carvings I have already finished,

with the oriels still missing carvings  /  figures attached later.

I have decided not or color this model, or only black/brown

wood stain for the moldings and golg color for the numeros crowns.

The model will look a bit different from really beautiful and colorful

models of Maarten or Doris, etc.

First off all, I will start with the interior design of the model.

The dimensions of the carvings made a modification of the window openings

and gunports are absolutely necessary.

My mistake in the frame construction or the finished size of the carvings,

no matterit müsst be changed.

Wonderful work.  How did you solve your problem with the carving hanging over the windows as in post #38?


Thanks to all for the comments.

The window openings and gun ports 4mm shifted to the bow.

It was important to me that the carvings have been preserved throughout.

Thanks to everyone for the kind comments.


I build the Royal Caroline model without the luxurious and pompus

interior of the Royal Apartments.


The following pictures of the beautiful and magnificent models by

Attila Králl and Doris Obrucova show how these rooms were possibly equipped.

Hello model building friends,

a little update.

The pictures speak for themselves ,

therefore no great explanations.

You, sir, are an amazing model builder. I admire this ship and your work is top quality. Great job building the sheet bitts for the lifeboat in front of the main mast. Your models seem to always have a life of their own the way can see into the interiors and all the details that you put in. This has been the best I have seen so far of your blogs. Keep it up.


Brian :)

This is a beautiful model Karl and everything looks perfect...except those belaying pins. They look to be twice as wide as they should be. I know it's incredibly picky but on a model of this quality they seem genuinely out of place. Here in the US Bluejacket sells nice slender ones. I'm sure someone sells them in Europe if you don't have a lathe to turn them yourself.

various superstructures, such as

ventilation grille, stairs and anchor capstan.

Replace nails / Coffie nails from the nail bank

that were somehow too thick.

The new Coffie-nails fit the construction much better on a scale.
