HMS Jalouse by thomashd - Caldercraft - 1/64

Recommended Posts

(Sorry for the mix up, I put it in the wrong category by mistake!)

As the lockdown continues here in the UK, I have been steadily working on my Jalouse. Just finished the Ballahoo a few weeks back. 

Here are some pictures of both. I do hope this log can help future builders of the Jalouse as there seems to be no logs at all on this beautiful ship.

 

Cheers,

 

Tom

Here is Ballahoo and the beginning of Jalouse:

A few pictures of the progress made in the last few days. For the first time in my life, I have to admit myself rather disappointed by the quality of wood Caldercraft provided. The stuff for the deck was really poorly cut, with the width of it being anywhere from 2mm to 4mm. The model is still looking nice though!

Nice work so far. I'll be interested to watch this develop, since as you said there are no other build logs of her on MSW.

Hi Tom,

I am under the same impression. Jalouse is a beautiful ship and really worth building. The hull of your model looks very good and I am curious on your progressing.

I was also looking for a build log and finally arrived at this friendly forum (signed up only last Friday).

Similar to you, I built the Ballahoo and bought the Jalouse thereafter. I started with the kit last year late in September and I am currently working on the deck fittings. I will probably start a build log shortly, however I began taking pictures only after first and second plankings were completed. I guess it will be very nice and interesting to compare our kits and exchange hints (no competition intended).

Take care!

Uwe

I am really confused as to why no one ever did a log on this ship. Beautiful lines and perfect for a second/third model. 

There are several models in the Caldercraft lineup that don't seem to have caught on as well as others, for whatever reason. Jalouse, Cruizer, Snake, and Mars are all wonderful single-gun-deck subjects, but we hardly see them in the forum. Lots of build logs  for Sherbourne and Victory, their bottom and top end kits, which makes sense. The Amati Fly and Pegasus kits were huge hits and probably stole the thunder from some of the earlier Caldercraft intermediate-level entries. At least that's how it went for me -- I was all onboard with going for Snake as a fourth POB build until Fly became available. Someday I may even finish it!

looking good mate!

 

Remember to clean the copper plates after every session if you have sweaty hands.  I learned the hard way... Some of my tiles still have finger prints etched into the metal even after polishing.

Nice work!!

Your coppering looks fine to me, but I'm not an expert as I've not coppered any hulls yet😏

You didn't all that coppering in one day? Amazingly accurate!

I have tried coppering so far only once, and that (HM Schooner Pickle) ended -also for other reasons- in the waste bin. So I decided to paint my Jalouse white...

The beauty of being on a holiday... I think future ships will also not be coppered I find it excruciatingly annoying and rather unpleasant for the overall aspect of the ship

If the coppering gets older with a nice patina, the effect is really nice I can assure you! But also a matter of taste offcourse :P

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal.
