HMS FLY by cafmodel - 1/48

Recommended Posts

:D

I was shocked when I saw this set of drawings for the first time. He was so gorgeous and had so many beautiful paintings. I watched for a long time and slowly appreciated them, trying to understand the craftsman's state from my current perspective

The ribs of British wooden sailboat are very complex. When making HMS enterprise, the ribs are simplified. There are two advantages: 1. The difficulty of making is reduced, the production is convenient, 2. The cost is reduced

But for HMS fly, I want to show its original structure as much as I can, which is a big challenge for me, but I like to challenge

Here's the scale, which can be adjusted to any scale

You might get more insight into construction of a Swan class sixth rate using The Fully Framed Model series of books. Frames are not all the same width all the way up.

This is a link to purchasing the framing plan for a Swan class ship from the Royal Museum Greenwich.  This illustrates Druxey's comment that the frames are not all the same width.

Thank you very much for your help

I noticed this situation in the initial drawing. According to the data measured in the original drawing, the change of the thickness of most ribs is not obvious, especially 1 / 48, which is not well reflected.

Not very obvious at all! But those diminishing futtocks, along with the shifted and cast toptimbers make this sort of modelling both fun and challenging (midships photo of my Swan class  Pegasus attached). I wouldn't include them in any scale smaller that 1:48 though as I don't think the human eye could pick out the 1" differences in width.

 

Happy New Year, CAF (don't know your name). I very much enjoy your innovative work in ship model kits

Hello ,Greg

Thank you very much. I like the challenge. I hope it will succeed this time

This one is very beautiful. What's the proportion of it? 1:48?

Among the ribs of some ships, the gradual reduction of ribs will be obvious, and there will be many changes, but this one is not obvious, especially the change of 0.2-0.5mm in the ratio of 1:48. I think that the change size can be increased appropriately during construction, which can be 0.5-0.8mm. I want to hear your suggestions

Happy New Year

Tom

I can't wait to see this progress, Tom. 

 

How accurate to the real thing will frame construction be, and will it have a full interior?

Hi Yves

Thank you very much for your attention

Now most young people are playing video games. There are fewer people making wooden sailboats. Part of the reason is that it's difficult to make.

(of most model toys, wooden sailboats are the most difficult to make.)

So I think how to reduce the difficulty of making the model so that more people can make a beautiful sailing boat, so that the industry can develop.

Hope to have more excellent works

 

Tom

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.
