imageproxy.php?img=&key=4f3b55ae31fcd018imageproxy.php?img=&key=4f3b55ae31fcd018Hello guys! 

I recently started with my first build and I already have some pictures to show.

I am planning to paint the ship with the accurate color based on a image ive found (inside hullplanking is red, end black and white stripe for outside).

Also I want to make custom gunports and make guns for the stern.

Here are my first pics. I hope you guys will enjoy it.

First the frames and blocks, I made sure the frames where parallel to the keel so I used clamps to bend them.imageproxy.php?img=&key=4f3b55ae31fcd018imageproxy.php?img=&key=4f3b55ae31fcd018

In between the dry time I printed some 6 pounder cannons ive made in Fusion 360 (3d modeling cad software). Mind that this guns are 25mm.

I then glued the deck layer on it.

After that was done and the glue was dry, I sanded the model thorough.

I decided to do separate planks on the deck and use strips of 100mm and strips of 50mm to simulate real planking, I used the plans for this.

I think it got a really good look! What do you guys use to make the deck more dark and used? I heard tung oil?

Welcome on board Atze99!

 

Happy to see a fellow model working on the same build as me.

Your work is coming along nicely. The printed cannons are cool, so they are plastic? Did you design them or did you download the design?

 

Looks like you are doing a much better job of fairing the hull than I did. That will pay off later ... when hull planking.

A top down picture of your decking would give us a better idea of how your planking looks.

 

For darking the deck, I used some dark colored stain from my model miniatures. I paint miniature models that come with the board games we play.

The flesh colored stain was to dark and I ended sanding it down. That helped greatly.

 

This is my first hull and plank build so I'm still learning as I go.

 

Anyway, I'll follow along and watch your build as it develops👍

Nice to see that you are following my build! i am already working on the planking and now that i see that people are following my build, i will post pictures next time im building again. Im already done with the deck and i already got all the nails in the planks. 

The guns are selfmade, if you want the design, i could post on sites like thingiverse. however i think they are a little smaller then the guns/carronades that are with the kit. so next time i will print them a little bigger. I am planning on adding some gunports and making stern guns, i already got a plan for that.

Nice start on your Enterprise.  Your 3D printed cannons look very nice.  It looks like you need to do some fairing at the stern.  Take a planking strip and lay it across the bulkheads to see how they will lie.  Also, before you stain your deck, test your stain on some scrap planking material.  This will give you a chance to see if the stain is the desired color before it is applied to your model.
