Recommended Posts

Glueing things together. I have finished the planking of the latrines so now it is time to glue the taffrel and counter to the hull. I have also glued and smoothend the stem, keel, false keel and stern-post. IMG_20190715_163426.thumb.jpg.ec0528cfd5ff80fb5f233c35c7e6d5d9.jpgIMG_20190715_163512.thumb.jpg.079acd6ad77f2d6af8e850309a3a3d17.jpgIMG_20190715_163257.thumb.jpg.af426a0cbe3875ad185853d527a9afe2.jpgIMG_20190715_163353.thumb.jpg.7cff17db87c9b59d121626af81aefaf1.jpgIMG_20190715_163316.thumb.jpg.7458dd320b94eb047e085ecb33e3c317.jpgIMG_20190715_163305.thumb.jpg.532b13111e95aa22a164ca4b5a14846c.jpg

Should you not have a hole under the latrines, or are they using buckets?

What oil are you using?

 

Will this not cause the grain to raise?

I have no idea. History was always big trouběmle in the school and I'm not a big fun of research as well . Here I believe guys from MK and quoted what was in instructions. (the big vessels have latrines ať the bow section without roof) 

 

@James H

I hope not. It is some Hard oil and the testing pieces (and the taffrel and bowsprit looks pretty good) matt, like a silk tone and after 2 layers smooth as Hell! 

This is what I have bought. Not a long go and I'll use it to the hull. Pretty excited (and scared) in the same time💣

As you probably know, small ships in 1/72 scale usually omit some detalization. For example the scuppers (if you would like to install them, here are historically accurate specs for cutters of that age: 3-4 pcs, 2.5 inch inner diameter, the middle one is 0.5 inch wider; the big syringe needle has adequate size for that)

As for the latrines, we are practicslly sure that no pipes were present. One of them was definitly used as a storage cabinet (only 16 ppl as a crew!!!). The other MAY be used as a toilet, but it depends on the captain's will.

Could not wait and as the lower part of the hull is finished I soked one half with First Layer of the oil! How cool is the colour? I'm living it. The hull before oil was sanded with 400, 600,800 First Layer of oil with 1200 and the second will be with 1500. Will see if I add 3rd....not sure. IMG_20190718_100129.thumb.jpg.1fe9e4ed8522bd8f171ef77c98a6b945.jpgIMG_20190718_100154.thumb.jpg.0fbf6b9efabb1abcf4d87d8241ff6d0e.jpg

Plus also the restoration of the treenails in the bow and stern section. Turned out better then expected. So happy about the result! IMG_20190718_100208.thumb.jpg.368b585bbaa78fd709eafdd0701c58af.jpgIMG_20190718_100202.thumb.jpg.f08cc0d4c1a98bc99a3864aa4a2c0f35.jpg

beautiful look Peta,

I noticed on the pics ( your Post # 96, 97 and others) that some of the laser burnt treenailing had faded away a bit due to sanding in bow and stern area...

how did you manage to make them visible again ? great job !

Hi mate, 

It turned out (again) that the simpliest solution is the best! I Just take something what is called in my language "prubojnik" and do the holes There. Mega perfect it matches the laser very well. IMG_20190718_141619.thumb.jpg.0da6055ce463e7966ffd7e1fe8fdf695.jpg

All the hull after oil! Looks awesome

Looks like what we might call a scribing tool, or perhaps part of one.

Hi guys, 

I took my other honey to the alps for the ride for one week. Saalbach-Hinterglemm what a place to ride!

But I missed my dock! So good to be back and put some work on the AVOS! IMG_20190729_100431.thumb.jpg.2507345773534cda0853a824e10d7c97.jpg

Nice Bike! 🙂

Thanks man, 

Similar to the AVOS kit, so much fun for the money 👌It performs quite well: https://photos.app.goo.gl/yVfKFMD55SNsMc386

 

But back to AVOS. I was not completely happy with the surface after oil, it was not smooth enough. I have sanded it again with 800 1200 1500 grit to get really smooth hull and apply thin layer of oil again, right after the application I have removed the accessed oil with a rug and polished it. That result makes me happy now.

Looking amazing. I love the warmth the oil has given to the pear planks and the deck.

 

I suspected you might need to finish the surface after oiling with the grain raising a little. Something I'll watch out for on mine.

 I did that on the hull bellow the wales. After oil send to the very smooth and give very thin layer of oil again and directly také off the remains of the oil with a cloth. It makes nice surface. That is why I decided to put oil now inside before There are many conners which will be not easy to access with cloth. Hope it was good decision. It is my First time dealing with a oil finish. So it is a try! But So far si good. Love the result.

I'm just a teensy bit sad to see that the entire hull has been oiled. I rather liked the contrast between the oiled and un-oiled strakes above and below the wale -- perhaps something for subsequent builders to think about. Nevertheless, that's not meant to denigrate your work in any way -- you are really doing an exquisite job on this project.

@ccoyle thank you. Each person different feeling. Personaly I like more less colours on the model.

 

As parts became smaller and smaller the progress slows Down as well. I have installed few cleats (they are laser cut from the side and also from above so it is shaped very well I only had to remove the char). I have assembled the pulley on the bow from 3 photoetched parts and add the horseshoes to the keel. All is blackend with "brass black".

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.
