The next thing for me to do is the panels and flooring of the captains cabin. I wanted to use my ivory for the panels and started with the starbord panel.

I made a base from a thin veneer and cut out door and gunport in the right position. Then I glued small strips of veneer onto it, for the placement of frames and panels. The ivory parts were cut and profiled on the saw and afterward sanded an glued on the base. Here you see the result.

My material will be enough for the captains cabin, but not for the rooms infront of the cabin. I plan to make that with wooden panels like this one here:

One thing I still have to add, before gluing the starbord panel in position is the door to the Quartergalerie. I am thinking of a sliding door like this one:

After that, I will make the checkerbord flooring, using the material of the panels and some ebony. I started the preparation on this one:

Here you see the strips glued together and sandet roughly, next they will be cut apart and glued on a veneer-basebord as well and then sanded and polished.

Hello everybody, I made the checker floor for the captains cabin.

 

I wanted it like on the pictures on the captains cabins:

 

13portsmouth-hms-victory-great-room-or-nelsons-day-cabin-aft-end-upper-gun-deck.jpg.dfb387fe6618466c4ea92fdb0802ad79.jpg

First thing was to provide the stripes and cut them without breaking them.

 

XII-1.thumb.jpg.1f99c5930fa11f8c4eea3e3fd20cbf1e.jpg

 

Next step was to stick them upside down on a tape.

 

XII-2.thumb.jpg.23a76c5fe75e81820ccad038a7a01480.jpg

 

after that was done, a veneer template, wich had the size of the later flooring was glued to it upside down.XII-3.thumb.jpg.f671bea82e2cf91c58c84b5deee4bb96.jpg

 

Afterwards the edges were cut and sanded in shape and the surface was polished.

Her you see the flooring on the model:

Hello Everybody,

I finished the captains cabin rear gallery with the installation of the rudder trunk and the benches. For the small panels between the windows, I made small ebony decoration strips as framing.

First picture is the rudder trunk befor installation:

XIII.1.thumb.jpg.8aa04e98122da1f6a9eca79dd43649d5.jpg

 

Here you can see the Captain Sir C. Passaro is giving order for the next work to do :)

 

XIII.2.thumb.jpg.1da10f56731b7c9b71568777e871af0e.jpg

 

The paneled front of the bench were glued against a curved template, to follow the curved edge of the flooring.

 

And the finished arrangements:

A little talk after everything is done.

Thank you all for the likes and comments,

I proceeded with the rudder, wich was so incredibly well designed by Chuck.

 Just following the step by step instructions

She loves doing the fiddly things and her eyes are better than mine anyway...

Not much left to do, and I can turn the hull back over and mount the rudder in its place.

Yes but depending on how it fits in the coaming you could thin it more.  Its up

to You.  I made mine pretty thin but then I had to increase the height of the rabbet strip it sits on within the coamings.  You have to keep that in mind.  Thinner is better as that is more accurate but as you show it is still 100% better than the gratings found in most kits.  I think mine were around 3/64” thick when done after sanding a little on top and bottom until it looked right to my eye.

Thank you.

The gratings are almost done now. Two of them have to dry  over night, I will complete them tomorrow.

I sanded them down to almost 3/64" now. Twice one of the strips Fell out, so I had to work very careful.

 I also had to increase the hight of the rabbet for a good fit in the coamings.

So well designed! Thank you Chuck!!
