Brigantine Phoenix by Moreplovac - Master Korabel - 1/72

Recommended Posts

 

Still waiting for ropes to arrive, so in the meantime, i continue to add a few more details to the gun carriage...

 

Simple made a pilot holes first, drill a hole and insert a piece of a wire, cut the extend and push it in with opposite end of scalpel holder.

 

Pilot holes and holes drilled..

IMG_2682-5.thumb.jpg.3dbaa8e1b90a9bdb4e9ef34c76755aa9.jpg

During this process, accident could happen... pressing to hard with a scalpel holder and snap...

IMG_2685-5.thumb.jpg.f5f8d671349aae0f1078e0fac383e04a.jpg

But it can be fixed correctly..

All cannons completed. Next will add a small eyebolt, train tackle loop.

While waiting for this virus outbreak to leave us alone, continue making eye bolts...

 

First the spring was made out 0.3mm wire, using 0.9mm drill bit..

 

IMG_2697-9.thumb.jpg.83500603add6546512fb35fe26e00aa8.jpg

Then rings were cut out of it, one at a time since i dont have small enough wire cutters to cut few of them at once..

 

IMG_2694-9.thumb.jpg.e6137069d2f72ef652a1294f698b779a.jpg

The flakes of solder were cut as well...

 

IMG_2695-9.thumb.jpg.9851b9d41c16407a3c497619eac22c42.jpg

Small amount of soldering paste was applied to ring and, lets call it a leg, was positioned in such a way so it touches the ring, in the place where the ring circle is closing.. and tiny piece of soldering flake was added to..

 

IMG_2699-9.jpg.386fd5c0be9129b117a8337d4f942652.jpg

And soldering can start, small amount of flame, kind of easy cooking process..

 

IMG_2700-9.jpg.ad471558f84598663c94e8844e4ab445.jpg

The end result...

 

IMG_2702-9.jpg.b22aafa608184c656a96af4086857d70.jpg

For next batch of eye bolts, i prepared a small assembly line: several eye bolts lined up, ready to be solder....

 

IMG_2705-9.jpg.5b49913ac6a43644187292c328f0816e.jpg

Sometimes that small solder flake just does not want to stay put... second eye bolt needs resoldering..

 

IMG_2706-9.thumb.jpg.a2ac99a840b8d7758d2f606e865edcd9.jpg

Then i decided to make a soldering balls out of solder flakes, just to make it a bit more fun..

 

IMG_2707-9.jpg.558fa6387350bfc97330623e2d55b5a3.jpg

The assembly line does not change a lot..

 

IMG_2708-9.thumb.jpg.f54bec0cb201736a409530e2a4102cf2.jpg

Completed eyebolts and parts waiting for assembly..

 

IMG_2703-9.thumb.jpg.425093a444eebd3486568b57c4f8cab6.jpg

These sets of eyebolts will be used to attach the cannon rope to the ship... the smaller eyebolts will be attached to the cannons....

 

All cannons completed and waiting for a rope...

In the meantime i started to work on ship boat.. The instructions are fine, enough detailed but a few more instruction pictures would be beneficial..

IMG_2717-7.thumb.jpg.a7a7485bfda9332b285e187657861760.jpg

The whole package of items needed for a boat are all included in one ziplock-type bag, including instruction.

 

IMG_2716-7.thumb.jpg.6cb88c9cf47412c1333ebb9ccb707de4.jpg

 

Items in the sheet are cut properly, very precise laser cuts and easy to remove. But they are very fragile and needed to be removed carefully..

 

Cut, remove, sand, glue.....

Big mistake: do NOT glue the frames into the jig. You will have to remove the jig later first, then partially cut the frames.

You are absolutely right; i was thinking about later how to complete the boat and realized that it was a mistake.. Started to remove the frames...

Thanks

While still waiting for ropes to arrive, the work on ship boat continues..

The frames were removed with a little help of a ammonium, and jig was cleaned by sanding it all around. And yes, did i mention these parts are fragile...

IMG_2726-2.thumb.jpg.ddb36d2b2ba058579370db932f1837a0.jpg

Particular attention and caution should be applied when cutting parts of the board. Very tiny parts....

Boards are soaked for easy manipulation. They need just a little twist to be able to lay down correctly. They might break dough...

Well, planking time it is...

Getting ready for planking, ribs are all glued and installed, brief hull sanding, and lets get it done..

IMG_2747-1.thumb.jpg.838d7dfea980b6a82883788b9132d402.jpg

 

IMG_2749-1.thumb.jpg.2b90982a94c80d009ba6b8234667c002.jpg

First plank... cut it, sanded and dipped in the water for easy twisting.. i started with super glue..

IMG_2752-1.thumb.jpg.81fd366665c04b92c8895407975493c2.jpg

IMG_2753-1.thumb.jpg.d14437c04d03b5e84bb49ea9cf8664df.jpg

For first two ribs, i use super glue so i don't have to keep pressing longer. For all other ribs (frames) i use carpenter's glue to glue plank. It takes a bit longer to dry but have a bit more time to adjust the plank. All excess glue needs to be removed before dropping a plank in the place.

Nothing exciting to report.

Planking was completed on the boat. A bit of a planking touch up is still needed, final touches with scraping and sanding... a layer of danish oil will be applied at the end...

Planking has been completed...

 

IMG_2773-1.thumb.jpg.9ed4974d574a1ca476c63fdd9dac301d.jpg

... some scrapping and sanding done to smooth the planks.

 

IMG_2774-1.thumb.jpg.b89253f03e896de3dc127cde72111a28.jpg

IMG_2775-1.thumb.jpg.cd00d99a3a956f25e6fdde3eec267a3f.jpg

IMG_2776-1.jpg.1fbbed7b8f06804380c36c799d3d2f3c.jpg

Some of those ribs have been broken during the sanding process..

IMG_2778-1.thumb.jpg.9100e4fc4339572454d18188acd5a2f9.jpg

Now it is time to remove the jig from the boat... carefully breaking it..

IMG_2779-1.thumb.jpg.97b67c69bfe77800d31919bbb491b5b1.jpg

IMG_2780-1.thumb.jpg.7092d5fe77001b7015010344f1c42ca0.jpg

And done, the jig was removed..

IMG_2782-1.thumb.jpg.5e8048a33e44cddc00c4fb15ced99354.jpg

During the breaking process, one of the ribs, the last one broke. Even doung it will not be visible, need a fix. Out of the some cut piece, i made a replacement. Bit of sanding, filing, testing, fitting....

 

IMG_2783-1.thumb.jpg.1d2949e5e545e632db3378c3f3561366.jpg

and all is good again..

IMG_2784-1.thumb.jpg.9be1bafcd2294a5533171aea5d8d391e.jpg

Rest of the ribs were installed. First a short water bath, gentle twist and installation in the spot.

 

IMG_2785-1.thumb.jpg.f5ba2358a0eb4d3f57be228242923c8f.jpg

IMG_2786-1.thumb.jpg.3c7ff46e64864af87a5348118f55f6e6.jpg

IMG_2787-1.thumb.jpg.ea3cf8c086f4219e19a77f170f3ef911.jpg

IMG_2788-1.thumb.jpg.f62119aeca955429465676016cf22bee.jpg

There are some glue left particles that will be visible so i need to remove them once all ribs are in place.

 

Happy modeling.

These little ship's boat kits are really something!

Yes, they are and this one is not exception. But it is very fragile...

Did the ship's boat kit come as part of the ship kit, or did you buy them separately? I'd love to replace the cast-metal boats in my "Terror" kit with some nice wooden ones!

I believe that MK sells an upgraded version of the kit that includes the boat(s), but they can also be purchased separately -- something to keep in mind if you decide to add one to your build.

Thanks Chris, I just found them online sold separately. Just got the ruler out now, to see if one would fit my model!

MK do more sizes. I think they have 3 different mini kits in 1/72 scale.

I've ordered the largest one -3.75"- it's a bit small but marginally so. I will enjoy the model more with its high degree of detail. Unfortunately the other two ship's boats on Terror are canoe-stern ones so I can only do the big one but I will enjoy it. Thanks lads for your suggestions.

All ribs are installed...

 

IMG_2790-2.thumb.jpg.1d6491348b1936204a930d7ad735d930.jpg

 

Excess height was trimmed

 

IMG_2791-2.thumb.jpg.f1064376abb7ed21c4b6535cb6c21557.jpg

A layer of danish oil was applied, even dough i might have wait till all internal boat structures were mounted..

 

IMG_2792-2.jpg.21f9302d4f64ef94a10fbade133fb5ec.jpg

One of the ribs broke during jig removal phase so i had to fix it. You will see it at the top of the picture and after some trimming this is final result. Appears to be fixed fine..

 

IMG_2793-2.thumb.jpg.d1fdf76fe6017a1f9be639a854c505b9.jpg

Continue with work...

IMG_2798-2.thumb.jpg.47685dda002dbb72950e2f9c4dbe4be8.jpg

The keel has to be trimmed a bit to accommodate the last piece...

IMG_2799-2.thumb.jpg.ce5dd95c198aa4c1a3b2f68a913a5999.jpg

IMG_2801-2.thumb.jpg.877c9d56bd8ecd464b87d0ef4cacdd28.jpg

Not sure how to call this middle square box, but there are two of them, both need to be trimmed under the angle. So i try one before glue it and second after it was glued.

Well no preferences, both will work just fine.

Work continues with ship boat.

All pieces are easy removed from the frames, a bit of a sanding and removing of laser burn is required.

Gunwales fixed, rawlocks glued and all painted in flat black, ready for assembly..

 

IMG_2825-9.thumb.jpg.e211b5d63dbe5013f903c6e569e854ac.jpg

In attempt to blackening the pin and rudder gudgeon, i left them in the blackening solvent, and forgot :-). Today they were all disintegrated... so new parts have to be made.

 

i use a piece of copper wire, flattened it down and made a new parts..

 

IMG_2827-9.jpg.68ac14174d012d857452dd1b927a6a9b.jpg

The boat has been completed. Overall it is very nice product, easy to put together, the quality of parts are very good, the wood is also of a good quality. But, the parts are very fragile and prone to breakage.

The keel and stern, rudder and some other parts are made of different wood type than rest of the boat. Did not pay to much attention at the beginning to paint those parts in matching color. This way the keel and stern are in different color. I dont like it and i might ended up making another one. Will see but the mental note will be: paint the wood in the color that will cover the laser burns because it is very difficult to remove those burns without breaking the part... Or paint the boat in some other color schema that might not be accurate representation of the period.

IMG_2834(1).thumb.jpg.9252f04c671186b86ebb02fdfdaf4d11.jpg

Rudder completed... For rudder i started a bit different approach. First i mounted all pintles and gudgeon together, up and down and then i slide the rudder in. A bit of a glue was applied to gudgeons as well..

IMG_2833-1.jpg.53b0ce8d5cbe27d9411d991255115105.jpg

The eye bolt was added to stern and bow, as a detail; dont see it on the installation instruction..

IMG_2835-1.jpg.b396d8cf9c453d78329b7b2f8f463976.jpg

IMG_2836-1.thumb.jpg.5abdf9065a7303a6f7828924255dc447.jpg

The coat of satin varnish was applied to the whole boat, inside and out.

IMG_2837-1.thumb.jpg.dcc3441a382775f16bba02d8bc938e0e.jpg

And here it is...

IMG_2838-1.thumb.jpg.b91e73cac0e95088155e05882cbf3b68.jpg

IMG_2839-1.thumb.jpg.c453a5286e27cac75ad30ddb2913d150.jpg

IMG_2841-1.jpg.2ae28d84edbcf05aa98305910765eb53.jpg

Then i started to work on rows... few extra parts were glued up and down on the row that will be rounded later...

Again very tiny parts... must be careful 🙂

Looking into rudder, it does look a bit weird; the gap appears to be too big between rudder and a boat.. Need to redo it a bit..

Unfortunately i was not able to locate any info about the rudder on kit plan..

The rudder has been replaced.. the challenge was that there is no rudder schema available so i had to do a bit of research to come up with one that is close to the original as possible.

 

I have used some left over wood and transfer rudder on it..

IMG_2845-1.jpg.6949361d2177e2ecb99beb8e332becf7.jpg

Rudder was cut and shaped and installed on the boat. I am not fully satisfied with its look but will leave it as is for now. Rudder was not glued, just slide in..

IMG_2851-1.thumb.jpg.024eab2ef0c416f6d85e9661a7e47bf3.jpg

During process of mounting a new rudder, gudgeon snapped and replaced..

IMG_2846-1.jpg.5e8ba11042ed4e5e535ebd0750c772f3.jpg

10 rows were also completed...

IMG_2849-1.thumb.jpg.3bcfa39cf556315aede27a8ce52f441e.jpg

Since i am still waiting for a ropes to arrive, i put all completed parts aside.

IMG_2852-1.thumb.jpg.bff83322259a10f71937e0dc7a5e0af7.jpg

And the fun part started..

 

First i marked all parts based on kit diagram.

I have used a HB pencil in case some of those marks needs to be erased later.

Started with bulkhead, by removing them from the frame. The frame is strong so few different knifes are required to remove parts.

 

 Dry fit without any sanding shows that parts are very precise cut and easy to assemble...

Sanding was applied to keel and all bulkheads just enough to remove excess laser cut burns..

All bulkheads were removed, sanded and dry fit...

Friends, your opinions will be appreciated.

 

This great kit contains a piece of decorative plywood simulating deck planking, ready to be assembled on the ship.

I am kind of used to that all deck planking are made of straight planks, not as curved as on this sample. I am not familiar with bending methods during days when this real ship was built that will allow plank bending in the way they have represented here..

I am leaning towards more classical deck planking method where planks are all running straight (like in my Sultana model)....

..and where joggling the deck planking when they meet the margine planks...

What is your opinion?

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.
