Santisima Trinidad by LFNokia - Occre - 1:90

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

The time has come to start a new project, while building Robert E Lee i've purchased the Santissima Trinidad from Occre, Occre sells the full kit and the kit divided in 6 packs, wich is what i have aqquired.

I also got the Santissima Trinidad cross section kit that i intend to display together at the end and that i will include on this build log.

 

At the moment the idea/goal is to make it heavy weathered, painted, and copper the hull, although plans are always subject to change, and i did considered several other approaches, this is at the moment the plan.

 

As for the kit itself, the quality of the materials is overall good, but we all know that it is lacking in certain aspects, particularly the stern is really quite bad, and overall, it lacks details/decorations, as i go i'll try to adress some of this and hopefully improve on the kit a bit

 

I've also decided to try something new, and i will try to make videos of the construction, here is my 1st attempt

 

Unboxing packs 1 and 2

 

 

Hope you enjoy and give me some time to improve my video editing skills

 

Hope you join me on this journey (loooooong journey)

You've taken on three big jobs there, LF, I applaud your work ethic!  Your video looks great, BTW - thanks for taking the time to share all this, and I agree with your assessment of the kits.  Steve M.

LF,

Nice variation for a build log. Will follow as well. I'm using the instructions for the cross section that are included in the full ship kit for my cross section of same. There are more details added to your kit for the cross-section bit that are available with just cross-section instruction booklet (odd?)

 

I'm also tempted to buy the full kit and attempting it later. Those would be a great side-by-side -- I have also read the the stern section is not too good. Other builders have done some great "fixes" to that area. You might want to look around at other build logs as well when you get into that area. Good luck  with this one. :D

 

Cheers,

Keel and ribs, everything was very straight, no major issues with warping or anything like that, very good fit of every piece

 

 

Any suggestions regarding the videos are appreciated

 

Also, would it be preferable if i just link the video and post just pictures on the thread?

Your videos are fun. Please continue. This is a funny little table saw you have. Where did you get it from?

Great job. Great videos. I do not do weathering to my models. May be I will one day arrive to this. Yours look impressive.

It's a bit more work, but it's not harder, just a few more steps

 

just remmber to test before, saves you some wood, and saves you a lot of sanding

Looking good my friend.  Your videos put a new spin on a build thread.  For some reason I am amore w/this vessel.  I am as all, am a fan of the famous HMS Victory and have a kit tucked away.  But I also like the lines of a Man of War and this vessel happens to be one at the top of the food chain.  Looking forward too more of your build.

Rick
