Thanks Jim! 

 

Thanks also for all the comments and likes. It keeps me motivated.

 

It starts to look really great, I love the shape of the ship and all the wooden and brass details. Truly enjoyable built. I'm little bit afraid what I will do after AVOS and RC. Hope MK will release some new gem!

My only struggle so far was the three-piece black veneer cap over the transom area. Thee veneer was so thin, that even with soaking and nipping, it kept splitting. Those short lengths have to do acrobatics by bending in different directions.

Yep, that wasn't easy step. But still somehow doable.

Master Korabel has a few other kits such as Brigantine Phoenix or Schooner Polotsk. Both of them are great kits and should be no problem to you!

Rudder. You start from the photoetched part that needs to be bent to create a "hook". I have then silversolder the edges and smooth it with file. Blackening and the irons are ready.

I have added the eyebolts and decoration of the transom

And starting preparations of the deck furniture

Very good. Assemble the model very quickly!

But why is bell black?

Thank you Greenstone. 

It is my personal choice.I found it distracting leave it in brass when all other irons are black. I do not like colourfull models so that is the reason. Not sure what I do with belaying pins🤔

Preparation of the route for anchor cable.

@DPK @greenstone can I ask you guys for advice? There are two pre-drilled holes in the deck forward to the bow from the bell in the same line with other rings for securing the cable. I guess There should be another pair of rings? But it is not in instructions so I do not know if I can use 2 more photo etched parts #18 (are there some spare or the count is exactly for the model?) or should I produce my own? Thanks a lot!

Thank you very much for pointing at these holes. Yes, they were previously designed for holding the anchor cable, but currently they are not used.

I think the best decision is to make the wooden plugs from the remains of the deck holding plate and shut these holes down.

Obviously you can use them as intended, but you will have to count the eyebols first - maybe you should make your own,

I cannot say now, there are different versions of photo etched plates, some of them contain spare eyebolts, some have just what needed.

 

Btw, the kit is out for about 8 months now, but noone has pointed us at this yet!

Thanks man, that is what I thought. Similar case would be with inner bulwarks planking.

After final consideration, here is the conclusion: the holes for the anchor rope holding eyebolts are OK, the photo instruction lacks the images of the eyebolts installed. I shall fix it soon.

The number of eyebolts 18 is more than enough (at least 4 spare), so just install the pair and use as intended.

@Peta_V , the cleats you are referring to are not used. Currently the inner ladder is intended to be installed in that place.

You can either install the cleats (there are ALWAYS some not-used fastening places on the ships, for situational use) and find another place

for the ladders, or just ignore them and place the ladders onto that spots.

Back in the workshop with some small progress. 

I have added another pair of the secure rings @DPK's advice. Thanks again. I have finish few final touches on the windlass and secured it on the deck.

I have experimented with the belaying pins. Luckily There are few spare so I could blacken one to se how it looks on the ship. Still not sure what I will use, if clean brass or black (leaning little bit more for black version). Here is the comparison. What do you think??

You asked for opinions so here is one! I like the black much better and I imagine that you will too once you hang some rope coils around it. Perhaps if you had more brass fittings elsewhere the brass would look good but...

Thanks a lot for all likes and kind comments. Love it! 

 

@Katoom and @Dubz thank you for your opinion, I share the same one as well. I took other 2 or 20 looks at it and black goes much better with other details. I try to avoid the brass fittings which is the next reason for black 👍

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

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. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
