HMS Victory Cross-Section by Cpt. Tom - DeAgostini - 1/72 my first Cross-Section


Recommended Posts

Hi Folks,

 

after 9 months I´m back at service and I open my Shipyard again........ :) I had some health problems but everything is good and I want to show you my new project.....!

 

The HMS Victory Cross-Section, it shows you the part from the mainmast.

 

I change some things as in the kit.

At first I use pearwood 2x5mm and inside 1,5x4mm stripes and second I build light inside the ship.

 

But look, here are the first pictures:

Hi Tom.

It's nice to hear that you have made a recovery and getting back into ship modeling :)

Nice work there. Coming along nicely.

I have just started my build of the same DeAgostini victory.

I also used Lime for the planking and Walnut.

A question .. What is the notch in the keel for ?

And a second question . Are you going to build as per instructions or bash the kit ?

 

Regards Antony.

Hi Tom,

 

Glad to see your build and you are back in the shipyard!

I will follow you closely to see what you make from it.

We have on MSW 2 a new tradition…..

A lot of builders are serving popcorn while they are building……..

If you want to join us with that, let me know and I will provide the popcorn machine.

When the build is finished, we clean up the mess…..

Mark or Wayne are the barkeepers.

I have a seat at the front row!

 

Good luck and enjoy the build!

Morning Tom,

 

Are you in a rush?

Planking looks great.

Lights even greater!!!!!!

Cannon looks greatest……when you put her on the deck, don't forget to pull up the rope….. :P

You are doing a very good job!

The grain and the peas were in bags so I thought to build some bags. They are not included with the kit

Here is a little buildlog to create the bags.

 

At first you need an old T-Shirt and cut the Neck Part of....keep it, this is what you need for the bags.....!!!

Hi Tom.

Coming along nicely and is a credit to you and your skills.

I like the effect and effort you put into the barrels/casks. They look awesome.

I must say your finger nails look cool :)

 

Regards Antony.

Hello Tom,

 

Welcome back! It's good to see you back at work in the shipyard.

I'm glad you're feeling better.

 

You're doing great with this cross-section.

Nice touch putting in the lights.

 

Looking forward to your progress,

 

Anja

 

PS - 'The Darkside' means scratchbuilding. I see Sjors beat me to it.

Now the next deck......Orlopdeck......the planks on the deck beams were movable so I´m not nailing them and I use 1,5x4mm pearwood.
