Cutty Sark by Vladimir_Wairoa - 1:24- English Clipper - FINISHED


Recommended Posts

Good afternoon to all, 

This week was extra productive for me in a positive way, thankfully , i managed to finish fife rails properly to my liking, so only few imoortant things to go before i go rigging yay. 

Meanwhile I wasnt too happy or satisfied with how thin deadeyes turned out - and today  got one idea how to make proper thick  one quite easily even with proper  strap tenon line, with gluing up 2 small deadeyes. I did rasped off 1line of deadeye on both ones which made the strap line.... Im quite happy with outcome seem proper to me. What do you think? :)

 So i will be working on them evenings  for the rest of the week , as ropes still hasnt come yet. Hope you like the new deadeyes. I decided  Cutty deserves better. :) awsome thst at this scale one can make deadeyes  as original. 

 

Have fine weekend with your projects, take care and stay healthy till situation betters and massive thank you all for comments, interest etc ...

Vlad

I'm sure they were turned on a lathe, then parted off and the holes drilled and chamfered by hand....or a jig was made for the holes for a drill press.  Fun stuff.

I'd be interested in how you accomplish it....

The scale of this model is amazing...it surely allows you to focus on scale details more accurately.  What a job and you are working wonderfully.  Great job for sure.

Following with anticipation.

 

Rob

big thanks for liking and encouragement Rob, I am watching your Great republic in awe , how beautiful paper sails you make and trying to learn from it ....

fair wind to the clippers family :)

Good Evening Vladimir;

 

You are still making good progress, and your doubled-up deadeyes do seem to look the same proportion on their thickness as the ones in Rob's post showing the originals.

 

Well done, very glad to see how quickly you are getting on. 

 

All the best,

good morning , 

 

here comes the time ...:)) 

seems i will have to build 2 wooden clinkers  .... been snorchling on net if there might be a plan for them , campbel says 25" beam 6.5 " and bepth 3" ....

dirty shortcut will be to take artesania titanic plan and modify keel a bit  but eeergh doesnt seem to me likeable. i found some cutter lifeboats from era on maritime museum plans but not sure if applicable there ,,,can probably someone shed some light or suggestion to this topic please ? i believe all the lifeboats were more or less the same so there must be a way ...thanks a milion in advance

Hello Vlad, 

 

Beautyfull model and your skills are very good👍

Maybe you can look in my buildinglog of the Herringlugger KW140 Wilhelmina VII. I've build a lifeboat too and placed some pictures of how I did it. I have some simpele plans too if you like. 

 

Kind regards, Kees

Hi Kees, 

oh my thats a beauty. that riveting. oh my. i did try riveting on cutty but faioed so i let it go. i still think i will have to rebuild the nose . but about that later. i wish my skill was at least half of yours. im gonna chek that wilhelmina, im not sure i would not spoil your lifeboat seems its beyond my skill as no bulkheads etc... plan would be beneficial of course though. do you have both ends lifeboat not only transom one? and big  thanks for headup . cheers

Good weekend and health everyone.

cathedral of the oceans got a baby. :)

 

lifeboat. 

what a tour de force. Its my  first clinker please bear with me. Far from perfect though at the edges but i like boat enormously as learnt plenty. Finally small modeling didnt escape me,:)  I found free plan with exact measures as on cutty , but i modified/simplify interior design a bit...;) . Sorry. many thanks for any  comment etc...cant wait to put coat on. 3 days from drawing board to boat.  Have good weekend.

Does she have removable thwarts or was that just part of your simplification of it? 

Hello, She certainly does not. I am gonna mask that half mortise with metal knees to imitate original. not yet finished though. I mean interior of original is different by plces right behind nose and butt. i did not cut 2 nd and pre - last bulkhead as i got inspiration from one build of titqnic lifeboat. i made sure outer dimensions of boat are pretty true relative to scale - 25" length   beam size and depth 3,7 cm. that was my aim foremost. :) putting coat on her today. 

 

by the way floks this is slight offtopic question if someone could help me. is there any shop/ supplier selling model shipways plans in europe-land or GB? i would be very thankfull if someone might know. 

 

cheers Vlad

Just read your build and I must say you are very resourceful. Good work.

Alan

Hello ,thank you Alan, by resoyrceful you meant all kinds of old screws, rivets, mechanical watches and so oj that i use ? Well haha i try to   imagine before i build how to easy process - and its not always leading to good rulesults but works another time. I try to use as much as old stuff around house and its part of my fun to make use of old things. :) stay tuned.

Good Morning Vladimir;

 

You are still working hard I can see. The speed of progress is remarkable, and I agree with Alan above, your resourcefulness in using other objects as substitutes to obtain the desired look is ingenious.

 

Keep up the good work.

 

All the best,

Well i have to learn another magics though... :)  stay healthy!

Nice sunday to everyone,

its been week I posted an update, but since then hell of a things went on a cutty.

I tried to sum up all important works in pics, as since corona quarantine  I am at home with privilege to work a lot more than before I try as much as possible to speed up. Closing up is very near probably one more post before I quit as standing rigging shrouds are already hanging from masts and that would be end of titanic cutty.

So Masting.  Everything will be on pics, so I will try to comment on it. I started final polishing and cleanup of small things and building remaining small parts. As by nature i am very unpatient person, I found workarond how to save a day, usually when I start working I know if day is being dog or sweet. if dog i let it pass as eveything comes up ugly, and when a good day apears I work as much as possible. I made steering wheel bunk, and after securing all deadeyes / bases still to be painted black / I already made shourd ones. After new bow with knightheads, I finished outr side of bulwark rails attaching new wood support and metal plate with simulated rivets which allowed me to remove inner support for rails. I finally removed white ugly wooden supporters of rail underneath from deck side to make bow bulwarks look cleaner. I sanded off down side of catheads to make them unlinary shallower at one side, and put them on place. well as much as I hate glowing surfaces, I did not figure out another protection from dust as varnish. If you have another solution any advice more than welcomed. o I put on deck 5 or so  coats of varnish ,more and less diluted  and after first 2 I scraped upgrain with razor. I put more work again on lifeboat reworked thwarts blonde and fixed according they should be and put metal knees. installed nameplate and made small fore "spray rail ". Installed bow bell. I made stern gratings cover,..aligned both nameplates in bow according plan so I had to put them a bit outwards .... secured stern bollards, made skylighs, still some things to make. rail winches , beef casks, poop bell...but leeaving as i need more patience :) securing masts scared me, as I left them with square holes /stupid idea/ so i had to align them all and instert some triangle wood sticks to secure them . but worked. at this point I started standing rigging. hanged shrouds and seiging them in pairs up masts. :) still have to put bowsprit chains...i painted stairs white. :) Next chapter. - rigging.

thats all for this week folks, big thanks for great  comments...support, for any remark comment, like etc...and stay healthy!Vlad

Just came across you wonderful log, this will be a great model! Clearly you are having to much fun! I think the scale is spot on, you are capturing the feeling of massiveness that you get with these large ships. Looking forward for the rest of this journey.

Hello  thank you for warm worlds and stopping by. Well massivenes it is, i self doubt abput my work as it is far from ok but fun and selflikeness is important part otherwise we would not do it. I came thru many phases with her from thrill, doubt, despair, uncertainty, dislike, ...but never regret as when it was worst i kept saying myself. She will outlive you give her most you can :) im way closer to wrap than long long ago when started.. Enjoying standing rig massively yes. Thx Have fun yourself.

Dear fellows, There is working mess is the shipyard. I cant explain how much beauty and real complete feel  rigging adds to the ship. I glad i went for it. Even when ratlines are  not there. I was playing with idea tried to splice rope to show off some 3 cord stopper but i was swearing so much i gave up . Not worth hassle with 60 deadeyes i would be probably dead or end up in psychiatric :) however it is doable though. I just hope i am doing rigging right. Those colors really match with boat. Not sure if photos show that enough.i am definitely glad for fine lanyard rope. V.

Is your rope 3 strand Vlad? I mean, is your rope made of 3 individually made smaller ropes? If so, splicing is very satisfying and ultimately quick and time effective. If your rope is made from threads, splicing does not work well. I used splicing extensively in the past and that was my experience.

Vaddoc it is 3 individual strand. I will try to learn and put splicing eye for backstays eyes. fingers crossed though :). I was browsing thru your old brilliant sail boat project,you are creative when lack of power tools.   - i can definitely cope with that struggle /fun. it is invention of new methods of crafting materials that makes this hobby fun. at least for me.
