Egyptian Seagoing Ship “Byblos” by Hellmuht Schrader - 1:32


Recommended Posts

Amazing build! Very interesting, captivating, well researched and absolutely unique. I learnt a lot about these Egyptian vessels. On top, your outstanding workmanship made your build a pleasure to follow.

Congratulations and now the difficult question is: what's next?

Best regards,

Dan.

Thanks a lot to you all. Your comments an your likes always motivate me to start and most important “to finish”.  I’ve seen a lot of unfinished projects in different scenarios, which is really sad.

 

with all this positive comments you all make me blush.

 

Next I have several alternatives but looking for

 

1. finally to have “my viking” where with the help of this forum, there are enough research and documentation.

 

2. a Quanzhou Ship.  Which is a first century Chinese Junk.  Where there is not that much information (pretty less that the Egyptian one)

 

BUT FIRST.... finishing the “diorama” where the idea is not to build a very complex one but a real Egyptian surroundings. 
 

again. Thanks a lot!!

Hello all......

I already brought the diorama Base......

The idea is to build a dry dock “simulation...... and in the back side I’ll build a “wall” simulating the Sahure King tomb (. Let’s remember that the “Byblos ship pictures were found in his tomb).....

Well...... I went to the “odonthology” method.... and using the PLASTER CASTING material I created the “wall”..... but first I took the drawing from Landstrom book, imported to Autocad and created a full picture with 25 cm long....

Then I put it over the “wall” and with carbon paper I reproduced the image over it.....

Created the “stones”.....

And started to carving all these “details”.....

It is going to be a long way before it is finished....

For the “first” floor I decided to go after a Egyptian shipyard.......

this suppose to be the “original”

It was not found in the Sahure tomb.  It was found in a Tomb named “The Mastaba of Ty”. Also from the fifth dynasty.  I took the first picture imported it to Autocad scaled it and....boom....

 

With a carbon paper I copied it in the wall.....

Here we are again.....progress in the base.....

 

First I made a stone simulation/distribution in the MDF

Second I applied the stone-cast on top of it, making sure that the stones joints needed to be marked

I installed the wood beams....

Third.... I brought the stone wall and the ship to see how the set is looking..... in the showcase

Then.  We need to age the stones and start installing the sand.....
