Hello,

 

After a long break from my build log, i begin with a few pictures from my start with the rigging.

Here i mounted the bobstay, flying jibboom guy, guy pendant and travelling guy

20200307_214909.thumb.jpg.8e501c106dd8608cca5dfaf34945592d.jpg

Then i startet with the shrouds on the fore lower mast

20200210_194646.thumb.jpg.c0df0269f2c7ba3c0c495cdb54d7db3d.jpg

20200210_194733.thumb.jpg.5fbdc350a8aec248e6de964c6bbd6c26.jpg20200213_201833.thumb.jpg.8e9fa2c3be586bb86cef8f02a588cb01.jpg

Here is the fore stay, the fore preventer stay and the fore tackle pendants

20200214_210148.thumb.jpg.b8ae6a93e1535c226b342bba8d2dd2bc.jpg

20200214_181831.thumb.jpg.623a6ab7258b8344c3ed42c8136c0fe3.jpg

After this i made the futtock stave and the fore topmast futtock shrauds

20200215_214923.thumb.jpg.17f8d6332b2156a83617c62a4fef3fe2.jpg

Here are the catharpins

20200215_215029.thumb.jpg.47fd994f2264c3844e5dc186829b4846.jpg

And now the rat-lines

20200222_213646.thumb.jpg.c673d0db95f51dcd2d6b71dc62845ad4.jpg

20200222_213658.thumb.jpg.7febc88cf3368e0eece4258aefdebf76.jpg

And so i worked to the top of the mast

20200301_170435.thumb.jpg.54a549377ac1d84ce0366da091b82fd1.jpg

20200301_170618.thumb.jpg.d5f4e8a2e35fde4ef540439f01e6200e.jpg

20200307_214827.thumb.jpg.1b877dd460f31e5d6516d36727ead28e.jpg

After the fore mast was ready with the standing rigging i began the main mast.

I rig this as well as the fore mast.20200423_223247.thumb.jpg.0f34ac2f7bd38e009d808286ae6f9b58.jpg

20200423_223536.thumb.jpg.69c5757e6d847101988bbb5327d9dde6.jpg

 

When i was finished wiht the main mast, i didn´t like the result.

All the lashings were smeared wiht glue.

20200331_175543.thumb.jpg.bc0828c8e0cf51ff440e493b2d124546.jpg

20200331_175812.thumb.jpg.a6685ebf84c6e52664f593877bb58af8.jpg
For a long time i rummaged in various forums and decided i made all new.

I got new rigging yarn and started a few tries.

20200331_174636.thumb.jpg.60bc24641202002e942798699f2ec9d9.jpg

20200331_180427.thumb.jpg.06652460eea5a69ecf3b90917d2d59e1.jpg

20200502_200741.thumb.jpg.580b9cc67203d3d3e399bb0635e970f1.jpg
I was totally amazed at how great the result will be.

So i removed the rigging.

20200424_185210.thumb.jpg.374e72255ba9c60b9b80dac011b8c5cf.jpg

20200424_185238.thumb.jpg.f8e452eed449a8e93beab0c9749849e8.jpg

So and this is right now.

I will report on the further construction Progress.

 

Cheers

I really enjoyed looking at pictures you provided and the journey you are making towards perfection of your workmanship. Lots to learn for me with rigging as this is something I will be doing one day on my model but it is in more modest scale (1:90).

Hi,

 

After i was satisfied with the samples i began with the new rigging.

The first work i do was served the shrouds

20200530_012116.thumb.jpg.e6a7d2bb6387e9f3a5a2b3c93a85578c.jpg

20200530_012223.thumb.jpg.421747e7ca3d57bfb3ae9a72839820a9.jpg

The lashings are complete without glue.

20200606_190330.thumb.jpg.7d6e34e2f5d6490bbea86e1dc4b77664.jpg

20200606_190421.thumb.jpg.b08c76293cf7ee09acb54b5cd6a76aa1.jpg

Then i rigged the bowsprit and made the foot rope on the spritsail yard

20200608_214609.thumb.jpg.72b93d0666a891c460f9f4c713f9ff97.jpg

20200608_214632.thumb.jpg.b40c2157f1ba26b4e19aafb148b2c1e9.jpg

 

That's all for now. I will report on progress

Hello,

 

Now I have finished rigging the bowsprit.

20200611_195554.thumb.jpg.9e31733e9d9df957fa3a0fe42f1d8412.jpg

20200611_195615.thumb.jpg.8d7f052fdbc4b3673527427137a70816.jpg

I left all the ropes open so that I can tighten everything at the end.
With the shrouds I have now also started.

20200612_163149.thumb.jpg.0021cc48b16f4efe2b031c1bd3f4070b.jpg
I made the wooden rail so that I can get the deadeye all in one height. I have seen it in a forum and find it a very good idea.

20200612_172753.thumb.jpg.071c37c4431b34ce3f04e65c4588a29e.jpg

20200612_193706.thumb.jpg.b369989029425bdfb343c16800efa200.jpg

So that's it again.

Hi,

 

Now i am finished with the shrouds at the lower masts.

20200621_183822.thumb.jpg.52ecccc9bc922c80a5cf051cb72a0a5a.jpg

I have mounted an auxiliary stay, because otherwise the mast would be pulled too much backwards when setting the shrouds. This would have the consequence that when the stay is mounted the front shrouds would be looser than the rear ones and when the deadeyes are tightened the deadeyes would be at different heights.

20200616_183758.thumb.jpg.7815cdb18a7a3bee6db87a30bb43f0e7.jpg

Hello,

 

First of all, thanks for the likes and comments.

Clearway
No actually it did not hurt because I did not like the result.

Of course it's not perfect now either. When I see other projects here in the forum I can only marvel and try to orientate myself on this level. But in the end I must like the result.
I think if I want to build scale, such a project is primarily about building and then the result should be as you imagine it.

Hello,

 

Now I have a small update again.
I have now finished the futtock stave and the futtock shrouds on the foremast. I decided to use the alternative method according to the book "The Anatomy of Nelson's Ship". 

20200627_163223.thumb.jpg.13bf4c01f26db3e416b5532b420ec3ae.jpg

20200711_153859.thumb.jpg.0390e0965714776ce90936e497b4a2b9.jpg

 

Then I continued with the fore topmast shrouds.
I made myself a helpstay so that I can adjust the tension of the shrouds before the shrouds are ready.

20200718_191435.thumb.jpg.4d86ce88ebbe0aeabacd28c2c7762d3d.jpg

 

It is quite tedious and progresses only slowly.
But I'll keep you posted on the progress.

Hello,

 

For the shrouds on the mast I use a simple takling

 

20200718_224942.thumb.jpg.fad293eca8d5af6a719041ca5f989fe1.jpg

 

and for the deadeyes I use a seizing

I hope I helped you with that.

Thank you. This helps a lot. Guess i have to buy Nelsons ships anyway :) .

Hi Helli, I just came across your build,  I don't know how I have missed it during all this time.  That's a great job you are doing on the rigging.  I agree with you about the two books you recommended to Vahur, I have both of them.  When I came to do the masts, which I am still working on,  I deviated a bit from the plans supplied with the kit and referred a lot to 'The Anatomy of Nelson's Ships'.  It has some great drawings on the masts and rigging. I haven't started the rigging yet, and I am sure I will be referring a lot to these two books, and your build to steal some ideas 🙂.

Hello,

 

Of course I have been following your construction report since the beginning. There were also a lot of things I took over.👍
It would be a pleasure for me if you would take over some of my ideas.
The rigging is already a difficult task. After I removed the old one like it was so smeared with glue, I am making very slow progress.
The most important thing for me is not to use any glue at all. But this is not so easy as it is a very tricky job. You always have to sew the thread back. Sometimes you need several different needles and especially four hands.☺️
But it's fun and I'll keep at it and continue to follow other construction reports.

Hi Helli,

Really nice work on the shrouds, very neat and authentic. The rigging is going to be a challenge for me, never attempted a rigging job of the Victory's level.  The only rigging I did was on the J.S. Elcano, which was very basic, and Bluenose II which again is far from the Victory rigging.

Hello,

 

We have the same fate. The victory is my first ship. It's a big challenge. But you grow with the tasks.

And when I look at your work like that, I can only take my hat off to this perfection.

Hello,

 

I got a little further again.
I have now finished the ratlines at the Foremast

20201114_181158.thumb.jpg.4d2d76e7e4a9bc843741d0ab3094a979.jpg

 

20201114_181334.thumb.jpg.98be41a5816df5fc117f10ce1d9ffd1b.jpg

 

20201120_210505.thumb.jpg.d3f5352271727609e803aa2211c3334d.jpg

 

The next task were all the backstay's on the foremast

20201126_173807.thumb.jpg.008c4288a10fba1b1388ab60ef3049ca.jpg

 

20201126_173945.thumb.jpg.d2ddec73ded7cdf6491f38cad907eb53.jpg

 

And finally all the stay's.
So the foremast with the standing rigging is almost finished

 

20201126_173821.thumb.jpg.01ec3e2aecfe43c786864651c36ab9d4.jpg

 

20201126_174234.thumb.jpg.b16c1318c4ad2b5f3cad461ce21c78da.jpg

 

Now I will finally fix the standing rigging

Then I will start with the main mast.

 

Cheers

Hello,

 

Have made a little progress again

Now I have finished the ratlines on the main mast and the main topmast.

 

20201219_212009.thumb.jpg.288b2dfc22216e8a7850fba7eef53052.jpg

 

20201219_212019.thumb.jpg.6c03ce999e047cc4ee3d365740d34e0b.jpg

The next work is all the backstays on the main mast.
When I am ready I will report again.

Hello,

 

I have been able to solve the problem with the tackle pendants and the blocks for the yard. Many thanks to mort stoll who gave me valuable help.

 

20201223_110337.thumb.jpg.142ca52ff6e80bed8f2cf6d2aff0a68a.jpg

 

After solving the problem, I went back to the backstays.

After the completion of the standing rigging on the main mast, the tensioning of all ropes will be controlled and fixed.

 

Now I can devote myself to rigging the mizzen mast.

Hello,


Before it went to the fitting of Deadeye Futtock Strops I soldered them. But with a maximum of 10w soldering iron because otherwise the brass anneals and cracks.

20201225_194640.thumb.jpg.e386a7473d372ce6080b27c1ce41ed38.jpg

 

20201225_195033.thumb.jpg.8919fc378b20e48fe9c02e224f50f055.jpg

 


Then I mounted all the blocks and the futtock shrouds.

20201226_225300.thumb.jpg.165165d1804cbd1448408b444abc3e7b.jpg

 

20201226_225349.thumb.jpg.27987c42a4ecb4cce2d2150f552debf2.jpg

 


And again ratlines :-)

20201227_183609.thumb.jpg.a7d2de37969f1f5ff408802769959738.jpg

 


Now I have a forced break because I lost one when painting the deadeyes and I have no more in reserve. Due to the lockdown all stores are closed so I have to get them online.
But there are still enough other things to do.

Hello,

 

Since I have a forced break in the rigging, I started with the dinghies.
The method of gluing the frames was too risky for me.
Therefore, I have separated them before gluing to use them afterwards as placeholders.

20201230_143119.thumb.jpg.04d490f046eacb9aa217011109584751.jpg

 

After that I sanded the first planking filled and sanded again20201230_143130.thumb.jpg.b40973e63fdaaa73bbd7924f9cd03045.jpg

 

 Now I started with the second planking

 

20201231_123715.thumb.jpg.0bc148ee87d6f2e546f960008a6c25a6.jpg

 

 

20201231_123807.thumb.jpg.42192386d64e7aa3bc75d2b8e34dbc98.jpg

 

Add a few more details and fill a first time

Hello,

 

I have made a little progress again.
Now I have all four dinghies in the shell finished.

20210102_014736.thumb.jpg.29ff3038a10fa26c14b31c68684f69fd.jpg

 

20210102_014801.thumb.jpg.ad15b212a7365e832ae29720ef26b85b.jpg

 

 


With the two small boats I have planked only once.

 

20210102_134919.thumb.jpg.4e4dd657c3e87638df7fda06ca5d2395.jpg

 


Since this is not very strong, I have applied a layer of GFK.

 

20210102_171948.thumb.jpg.a86b8ee4d9bdb2d81cb2d00316c68328.jpg

 

20210102_171954.thumb.jpg.b710d2856fca5d2c8485d480cdf3144f.jpg

 


This is now also sanded and filled.

 

20210105_172721.thumb.jpg.6995046ffebc23b6fbc3cbb76d450286.jpg

 


The decks are already made and weathered.

 

20210102_172004.thumb.jpg.7fc2c06679c40d3d4f149e4fe740fc2c.jpg

 

 

20210102_202111.thumb.jpg.02a9ce7429bd62ecf7773ec98e5563f9.jpg

 


Now the interior begins.
