Hi,

 

By popular request, I start here with a buildlog from HMS Victory by Caldercraft.
Please don't be so strict with me if the one or the other is not so perfect. This is my first ship I am building.
I started doing it about a year and a half ago.

The bulkheads, the main keeland the middle gun deck are already glued together.20190316_144645.thumb.jpg.e4023beb939dac2ed056c2b7491cea5e.jpg20190316_144726.thumb.jpg.1f45ba8011db56c0bd1581477b269aa9.jpg

Here i painted it black and glued Filler Blocks in place20190317_160931.thumb.jpg.a8fab618661fa8111c9c86faba528c6c.jpg

Than i sanded it all

 

20190321_222943.thumb.jpg.2941b8d7bad26276bee24421899a9483.jpg

To assemble the gunport I built small screw clamps

20190322_154000.thumb.jpg.a9b73ae9699ff2cecc03bcd9827571dd.jpg

I used small screws to keep the gunport 2 and 3 in position

20190324_130149.thumb.jpg.19d1b38f1dea03f361c3f2edd19c3ac2.jpg

Than i startet with hull planking

After sanding the first planking is finished

So that the buildlog is not too long today, I'm taking a break.

Hi,

 

After my break i start again with my Report. After sanding the first hull planking, i started the quarter gallery and the middle gun deck planking.

 

20190413_140328.thumb.jpg.a30099b9a541ffd92df29fe9c2ab6e12.jpg

20190413_140340.thumb.jpg.7c5af7c54a8cdba5545debb290de4fb2.jpg

Since I liked it better not to lay the planks in one piece, I took over the dimensions from charter33

Then i broke the edges all around and laid the planks with a small gap.

20190413_160931.thumb.jpg.646177d024172ec9a5150b2eea1d4faa.jpg

I put a thread in the gap for the kafalterung.

20190418_234242.thumb.jpg.1c6f81ee02e44623e2b4993a8188daef.jpg

Then i glued the side gallerie in place

20190419_005834.thumb.jpg.aa1f6beb388b67d55059d2a003bd28a7.jpg

When this is done i started whit the second hull planking

20190420_201822.thumb.jpg.09f6544932671b90eeb107f9756fe2e0.jpg

20190425_205119.thumb.jpg.dc24c4578688ba8a84ace662a63921ad.jpg

20190501_174201.thumb.jpg.2742bd929a4f04cf095883251fccd8c3.jpg

Then i started with lining the gunport20190503_175508.thumb.jpg.e502f13e00e873f5647325830105f79f.jpg

and mounted the wales

20190510_174927.thumb.jpg.4a1c92843e9fe325bfc56471ba4e79f3.jpg

Planking the upper gun deck

20190510_174940.thumb.jpg.ed8633380036b3b0a3f7c817bfaf3b14.jpg

When weathering, I rubbed ashes into wood with a small sponge.

Then sealed with clear varnish so that the ash can be drawn into the wood.

When everything is dry, sand until the desired effect is achieved.

I drilled the nails with a 0.4mm drill and I filled the holes with coal dust with a pencil.

Then I sealed everything with matt clear varnish. Think the result looks ok!

20190526_140528.thumb.jpg.723efee917d606c742bcaa5842269f05.jpg

So that's it for today

Hi,

 

It continues with the planking of the inner bulark gunport pattern and the production of the other details from the upper gun deck

20190602_003845.thumb.jpg.b5186d9eea3c0b27d541373cb2fe6dde.jpg

20190602_003852.thumb.jpg.b511c89edec718eaf0c5f5f66dbd4cc9.jpg

20190618_152918.thumb.jpg.38ef1c864a07c46ca06bd1a537afd1fd.jpg

Now the cannons can be assembled.

For this I made a template with which I can drill the cannons at a 45 ° angle. Then I made a strap with a 1mm wire

20190608_220010.thumb.jpg.9441951fcc027fa9f847f8a7c9a170b6.jpg

20190608_215754.thumb.jpg.70d899547d0ec86b21d7254c02771f19.jpg

Then the cannons are assembled

20190618_152908.thumb.jpg.831d340ee44d06e103bfeea9820076dd.jpg

20190618_153017.thumb.jpg.c92cbd526cb8ebec50cef56e425e5621.jpg

I had to make a small tool to bend the cannon axis bracket (by Charter 33)

20190607_004930.thumb.jpg.1c6c89d2848db970af1af843d083dac4.jpg

20190618_200021.thumb.jpg.237b58fdc381f899a545f1f0a9e218ff.jpg

Then I could start painting the hull.

20190620_203957.thumb.jpg.b2f0ebd90f1db8386dde0605e5321a58.jpg

And now the copper

20190620_204023.thumb.jpg.56f7b2dc457f3e33739b915963888a45.jpg

20190621_200632.thumb.jpg.8d95fb9bafe010bf1decaae64a802e9b.jpg

20190702_185416.thumb.jpg.89e419a265c1dce4a832f5456589db52.jpg

 

To finish off the copper plates, I sanded back an L-profile made of plastic on one leg so that it just barely covered the copper plates

20200331_220804.thumb.jpg.b8adb84e3b0b2c66bb3df85ac62cda81.jpg

Then I drilled the holes for the dummy cannons. So that I can drill horizontally, I built an auxiliary device as shown in the picture

Helli,

 

Incredible work. Perhaps your first model ship, but obviously, not your first model.

 

This kit is sitting on my shelf, and as I am about to finally finish my current project, you are giving me the incentive to tackle this monster.

 

Your build log is only 5 days old, and I already have a lot of catching up to do.

 

I will be following along.

Hi,

 

My build is only 5 days old, but I've been building for a year and a half. Therefore, I actually do a fast forward to my current status.

I am currently in the rigging. But I have some problems that I have already solved in another thread. But more on that later.

Helli,

 

You didn't do all of this work in 5 days??? Your slacking off. Just kidding of course.

 

Your log caught my eye since it was evident that you would be downloading a ton of content in a short period of time to catch up to your year and a half building process. Getting all of that fresh content all at once is great for a viewer. That will definitely keep me checking in often.

 

And let me repeat.... your work is superb.

Hi,

 

Now i can start rigging the cannons. Seems to be almost endless but is fun

20190727_193728.thumb.jpg.e443e4a5fca3adfcd1338b25e013b25e.jpg

After I had finished rigging I started the details on the upper gun deck

The first thing i did was assemble the bilge pump

20190728_150308.thumb.jpg.7733d0eb5c814b2462325de37d1e1a85.jpg

Then i assembled the stairs and the railing20190728_162047.thumb.jpg.fee0aff6ea066fec4c6f351965fb7365.jpg

Finally I sanded the skid beam support pillars square and glued it on deck

20190728_162101.thumb.jpg.a4dd8f09e49fb7cfed735e30e09858e4.jpg

After everything was done, I started fitting the quarterdeck. The assembly of the sliding clamps was a bit tricky

20190802_193038.thumb.jpg.f3fc59d989c75eb6f2384b88d708f5e5.jpg

20190809_230811.thumb.jpg.9cf60c07371659d0e0327a98ea05cd7e.jpg

I have cut off the bulkhead so that I can assemble the inner gunport patterns and planked it

20190815_183225.thumb.jpg.dced3a6d8529be4bfcaa2a4a04492b9b.jpg

Then I painted them20190816_004524.thumb.jpg.8798e3927559e0c58473feb9cf53c8f7.jpg

Assemble the copper profiles and the channels

In the channels I drilled a 1 mm hole and put in a brass pin with cut off the head.

So that i can mount the channels on the hull

Hi Helli,

I've had this problem once as well. I think I solved it by clicking on edit, then deleting the pictures from the bank of imported photos at the bottom. I believe it was necessary to hover over the thumb nail picture for the X to appear. I'm no 'IT techy', but it might be worth a try.

Good luck - and a very nice build you have there!

Hi,

 

 The next work i had done was the assembling the beakhead bulkhead

20190913_012438.thumb.jpg.734ffd85b698ad24c9032bc3db6fd61d.jpg

20190913_012452.thumb.jpg.1a71106367bd3df954b7e46cdfb16034.jpg

Than i began with the bows

20190913_135429.thumb.jpg.c57cfa0200f481de1bdbe67dd3021668.jpg

20190915_165529.thumb.jpg.bdc3966e989c6260d8d0febe4582ffe5.jpg

I painted and mounted the beakhead Pilaster

20190921_233806.thumb.jpg.9bdb931c502e171091b7f804479f638c.jpg

and beakhead doors and gunports

20190927_022036.thumb.jpg.af16f59f723d4836ae4e5eec0340706d.jpg

and finished the bows and mounted the forecastle carronade

20190927_022050.thumb.jpg.01ad897f65dddc201a09857708ff3598.jpg

20190927_022139.thumb.jpg.8083d72922cb2bcbbdecc71ca78701d8.jpg

20190927_022101.thumb.jpg.fff42405173a6b7a8757336e6bbf242b.jpg

The next was the shipweel, the binnacle and the main companionway

20190927_022108.thumb.jpg.1e45ded2e4a029b7af5a89e824f48d46.jpg

20190928_012418.thumb.jpg.c41142bb6ee2d67bd1c222faea83cac6.jpg

When that was done, the poop deck was assembled and planked

20190928_012428.thumb.jpg.e2caa9d2f1eded2c371d1071e8cd149a.jpg

20190930_134629.thumb.jpg.6f1cc407f999cc779d7a808dc3ff229f.jpg

Than i assembled the Skylight and the flag lockers and glued in place

20191001_152653.thumb.jpg.14bd34dfbed2a975d14de5aa79ee4a87.jpg

The next was the cat heads

Hi,

 

At the stern gallery i put on the individual parts to convince myself of the fit

20191004_194134.thumb.jpg.ae8bf29ce073872159a98c5e0b34964b.jpg

When i was satisfied i glued the parts in place

20191006_161419.thumb.jpg.a4d8a518eb1c69d232fc532c13f92943.jpg

20191006_161708.thumb.jpg.01ae60e1202ef44760590223e6c9c9fc.jpg

Then i sanded the fenders and chesstrees and glued it on their place

20191012_201823.thumb.jpg.d78e97d891fcb4e5c8c94a177d7bd3ea.jpg

20191013_174929.thumb.jpg.b4f78360b44a5e97ef3ba905dd00826b.jpg

I made the black stripes between the windows from black cardboard

20191013_174941.thumb.jpg.04d20bd528b6e51e3681d33b1934508c.jpg

Now i painted the stern trophy of arms20191018_153532.thumb.jpg.0e9243705069032671271281e46d2c13.jpg

and mounted it

20191019_192735.thumb.jpg.8a1369aa081410cf1df2aff7260cfe3e.jpg

after that i was able to finish the side gallery

20191019_192906.thumb.jpg.43521b6b405fa70e78f2b996f88ac0dc.jpg

the next was the side entry port and the steps

20191031_233218.thumb.jpg.9466160e203faf23976003a991ade52c.jpg

20191102_232846.thumb.jpg.c242fc93437507dfa12f84580de8aeab.jpg

When assembling the chainplates I saw that some of the length didn't fit

so I had to recreate them

Hi,

 

The gun port lids were numbered because they had to be individually adapted to the wales20191115_003922.thumb.jpg.8c3b0e3c2c2cbf0559c41149838c3b61.jpg

then the hinges were installed

20191116_140145.thumb.jpg.0fab145332bc598e109c74b1717835f9.jpg

20191116_140221.thumb.jpg.af04423d0f05354c4756913b12da8ae5.jpg

afterward they were painted and the eyelet was installed

20191130_174650.thumb.jpg.b785bdd1ce210ef35c555874112426fb.jpg

The figurehead were painted and glued into position. I think it's OK

20191123_222447.thumb.jpg.20c2edcc7a46062ac5e42797017c31a7.jpg

20191123_222527.thumb.jpg.1edf384f53b7970656c0a772b2428869.jpg

20191123_222546.thumb.jpg.3a87e255e7cb129bed760d0a81f0a0d5.jpg

here i milled the groove for the brass profile

20191123_222611.thumb.jpg.88ea497bf3f2dab67a1953c5e418d379.jpg

20191213_212516.thumb.jpg.a2d71994c7bd8ad3f9cb08f6207f300c.jpg

I had to bend and solder a brass ring to prepare the anchors. Then the ring was wrapped with rope

20191130_174811.thumb.jpg.7af6827e8b449b2a24cf019dd04e9f51.jpg

20191130_174747.thumb.jpg.f536397e938da925df97c09bbe316945.jpg

the victory lettering was stuck in position. after that i started assembling the rudder

20191230_185948.thumb.jpg.cd6ce003e9c65265c762e9e7211cfef4.jpg

Now that the hull was reasonably finished I started with the masts

First I started with the bowsprit.

I have made all masts from five individual parts so that they cannot twist

Hi,

 

The next work was mounted the bowsprit with lashing and bobstay

After that, the manufacture of the masts began

In order to assemble them, I had to make the hammock nettigs beforehand

Now I could start with the masts

The masts were painted and the details were attached

Now I could use a plumb line to glue them into position

20200207_150858.thumb.jpg.164498ac37d119848b94f4308a2a8d56.jpg

I made the thimble myself on the lathe

20200107_145216.thumb.jpg.630bca1c6ebd3f0eeeaf3e2a1406d537.jpg

Then the rigging started. For this I made myself a serving machine

After trying a few things it could start
