No pennant on the topmast.

Tender "Avos" was the second ship in the squad (three-masted ship "Juno" and tender "Avos").

She was not supposed to pennant.

Only the three-masted ship "Juno"  could carry the pennant as the leader in the squad of ships

 

There were signal flags on any ship. Can add them

Thanks Eugen, that is exactly what I was trying to find out! 👍

 

@Mirabell61, @Hubert Boillotthank you guys! Really appreciate your comments.

It has been a while since last post. I finaly spare some time and get back to AVOS! Only few details need to be added. One of them was fastening of yawl. The equipment (oars, yards etc.) is not finished yet. Will play with that later.

Looks very nice Peta, well done.  I think Greenstone meant to say that the flagpole (or staff) would only be used if sails are NOT rigged.   The staff would interfere with the workings of the sail.

Thanks a lot for your comments and likes! 

I will remove the flag pole. It is there Just temporarily, not glued. 

 

My First attempts with rope coils. I need to play a bit with the size and shape but I think this could work..... What do you think?

@yvesvidal, thank you. I really appreciate it!

 

It is first time I'm doing this (I made a few hulls but never got to this stage). Coils will take some time but it is worth sending time and make it! Anyway I really like how it is turning out. 

 

Starting equip bow section.....

Fellow Czech modeler print out few new flags for me so I can test the shapes and positions. I did not like the fabric supplied in the kit. It was very dificult to work (perhaps I just did it wrong). Anyway here is my first test.

Here is a short guide, how I do coils. 

I have a jig from the scrap wood with 3 removable pins (2,3,5) and 3 securing points (1,4,6).

IMG_20200320_100813.thumb.jpg.33934c0ffe2587b195d1e939afa1d8b7.jpg

1. Secure the line to point 1 and make several loops around pins 2 and 3. I do 4-6 loops so the coils does not look similar. (I start with removed pin 5). Once finished with loops secure the other end to point 4.

2. Unsecure line from point 1 and pull out the very first loop through the middle of the coil. IMG_20200320_100951.thumb.jpg.30cf5fcaf77303017ee330f987d6fedf.jpg

3. Now you have to twist this to form the eye and secure it with pin 5.

4. Remove pin 2 and fully insert pin 5. Now you can adjust the coil as you want a once happy secure the end to point 6.

5. Now I secure the coil with 3 drops of CA glue. One where the eye meets coil, second ať the bottom of the coil and third to secure the loose end to the coil. Remove the coil from the jig by removing pin 5 and trim the excess thread.

6. Place the coil on the deck

Perhaps someone finds it usefull. 

Stay healthy!

That's a great technique, Peta. I hope you won't mind that I copied your last post and made a separate entry for it in the Masting & Rigging subforum. That way it can be more easily found by folks searching for help with this particular task.

 

Cheers!

Thanks Peta for the how-to guide on making rope coils.  I will refer to this when I get to making rope coils on my build.  Your Avos is looking great.

Absolutely stunning. I think "Master Korabel" should use your model for the box artwork and pictures of the finished model, in the instructions. What a Masterpiece!!!

I am just over two weeks into the construction of this model and your photographs are a total inspiration for me. Thank you.

I would love to see your build. I am actually really suprised that there aren't much more building logs of this kit. It is such a great kit for reasonable price I would say! I hope you share your progress with MSW group. If you would need any of help, I'm happy to try.

 

@yvesvidal @Edwardkenway @JpR62 thank you guys for your kind comments, really appreciated!

 

Also thanks for all the likes!

Absolutely beautiful. This is a very inspirational build. Thank your for sharing your construction methods.

 

I hope you don't mind if we share your build log with our customers. Sharing the link, at least.

No problem at all. I'm glad you like it and perhaps my log helps someone else. I like it!

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.
