Zeesboot- wooden fishing vessel-small Zeesboot c. 1876 by Mirabell61 - scale 1:24

Recommended Posts

I did the same Nils..........took care of the lawn stuff last week ;)   I'm on vacation this week........and to be bothered with those chores was something I wasn't going to let get in the way of a good time!   I'm sure that the admiral is a happy camper right about now :D   

 

yes Pete.......my admiral also thinks my modeling is good.........I'm poop though if I don't take out the trash!  ;)

Looking very good indeed Nils!  I was wondering who the giant hand belonged to 🙂  You've really achieved a true scale look, the close ups could be the real thing.  I'm sure the clinker painting is a challenge but turned out very well indeed, I'm sure it causes similar challenges at full scale.  Oh, and love all the detailing, very much enjoy following along.

Thank you very much Jason, much appreciated,

 

I built in the fuel day-tank with removable cap and chain under the engine bonnet. For the main storage tank, also installed on board, (drum) there is now a hand fuel pump, a hose and a discharge nozzle for filling the day tank

the hose is a bit stiff, see if I can get one more flexible

I have used soldering-tin, spiralling thin copper-wire around it, to represent re-enforced suction hoses and I recently saw another example in this building-thread: https://modelshipworld.com/topic/20162-new-england-stonington-dragger-by-friedclams-148-pob-a-1920s-western-rig/?do=findComment&comment=653110

Were these battery started or hand cranked Nils?

I like your fuel tank and fittings.

I think the general view is correct in that it should be a black hose and somewhat smaller diameter but you are on the case now.

By the time you have finished the engine and gubbins it will look ready to start!!

Dont forget the oily rag!!!

Oh the list is endless.

But great fun.

Pete

Thank you Pete,

I`m pleased you like the fitting out so far.

I think that in those days both hand cranked- and also battery starter were used. I have a starter unit attached to the engine housing, looks like I would need a battery also. The black round rubber (as hose) will fit into the hollow nozzles of pump discharge and hose end-nozzle.

Oh yes, the oily rag, a good idea....,  :) these small details bring life to the workboat !

Thanks again for the link Eberhard,

 

I found and ordered some black rubber (Hutschnur) 1,2 mm round on Ebay, hope it will work , and report the outcome later this week

 

Nils

 

This is the outcome for for an utmost flexible and black rubber hose (received today), trust this will do much better than the PVC one..

the black hose does look better :)   although.......the clear hose would have been great if the one could see the presence of air bubbles..........then they would know they need to prime the pump ;)    don't mind me........I've dealt too much with problems like that in real life  ;)    she coming along nicely.......love the engine!

Ah, here you are Nils.  Sorry for missing your Zeeboot build - - but I'll be starting from page 1 tomorrow or whenever I get the chance.

 

Cheers,

Fastening points for mainmast deadeyes :

 

two shrouds at both sides are spaned with laced diam. 7 mm deadeye tackles near to the deck. The fastening points are made from 3 x 0,6 mm brass flatt (chem. blackened) with a loop for the screw that goes through the looped endes of the deadeye harness.....

Nils I love your hand sketches.

I could just imagine a complete book of hand sketches on how to build the Zeesboot.

It would be a keepsake in itself.

Just to let you know....finally after three weeks my Zeesbooten book arrived today with a huge dent and bend on one of the corners.

Really annoying but I will not let it get me down.

The book is wonderful.

I was hoping the drawing would be larger but hey ho I can work around that.

I dare not start straight away although tempted as I must finish the two Brandos first and then Bluenose.

In between Bluenose though I may be tempted to plot out some bulkheads with my antique drawing instruments!!. Ha ha.

Thanks again for  the tip on which book to get.

I really am a great lover of these little boats now.

They have so much character and everything I could wish for from a static model.

Good morning Pete,

 

thanks for your compliment to the scetches. Most times whilst I do them there come ideas for further impovement....

A pitty your book got damaged, but trust it will still be of great help for you.

 

I`ve just done the two masts for mine yesterday, shaved them frome sqare to octogonal and then rounded an tapered a bit. The 3/4 mizzen can be layed flat

The harnesses for the deadeyes are done and blackened, and I still have some Morope for shrouds and laceings..

It would be better, if the deck is started now

Begin of building the mold

 

every second bulkhead only is used for the hull / mold shape. After the white glue is cured, the the bulkhead sides will be faired down to outline contour...

the slotted profile bars (4 mm slots)  are scrap parts I saved up from the recent built casing framework....

Nils.

I am trying to work out what you have glued to what and how the whole is released?

I ask as I would advocate using your same technique.

It has clearly all worked so good enough for me!

Good morning Pete,

 

all that you see on the 3 forstanding pics is only for the plug function and will be removed after clinker planking.

Keel and posts are made from pear wood, pls. refer to my post #37

the keel, the bow- and sternpost are screwed down on the plug, and not glued, as they will be permanently glued to the pear keel and the pear clinker-plank ends. The individual clinker planks are also horizontaly glued together. In my case some of the glue spillt on to the plug. The intension was to easy remove the plug completely from the shell, just by loostening the mini screws of keel anf the two posts. The plug was sitting too tight, due to spillt and cured glue, so it unfortunately had to be cut out of the shell carefully in some places ( being a "one way plug"). This could have been avoided by putting some transparent tape on the outer bulkhead contours of the plug, before planking.

I think I have got it Nils.

So what I see when I  look at picture is a completely glued up plug.

That is to say the bulkheads / forms , are glued to the base board?.

Thanks. Really sorry to be so stupid.

Pete.

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.
