hi Klimi, I am just starting the Sergal kit, and got the book today... One thing I spotted is that the wheelhouse is very different in the kit to the book (which is what you have made). Do you think the rudder can move enough with the wheel house from the book, as it seems a little restrictive from the drawings? I thought as you have made it you will be able to see better how well this would work! :)  The kit version gives a wide angle, but that looks too much... Nice work, I hope I can do as well as you!

Canoe21, thank you i hope that you will make best as you can! ;) do it slow and without many attempts it can not be a good model.

 

Chidokan, if you could buy book Anatomy of the ship, lets do it, cos the book is much much better base than everything by Sergal. My opinion is, wait with making hole for rudder on the board if you will whole hull complete. After that you will start with rudder fitting, make mark and the hole.

 

cheers,

 

there is more pics, sorry in last time i am very lazy with upload

nice boat, far better than the sergal one! :)  I have just put that together and it looks strange... nothing like the book! Do you plan to do the smaller one as well? I was thinking of making masts, sails and oars and storing them on the boats, but then thought they may be stored somewhere else.... anyone know where they keep them on the current replica ship?

Thank you Popeye, sure i have do some small details like anchnor, fitting cannons and wheel and i´m not sure in that if i will do a second safe boat.

 

Nenad thanks for compliment, everythink what i did was such clear so i think that there is nothing new to show. And i am pretty sceptic in that way, that i could did some parts better, but i try to get it like that is my first model and many mistakes are on place.

 

now i´m resting from this model and working on the chessboard

 

cheers

hi Klimi,

 I bought the book and my kit has very little similarity to it for the upper deck, so I am going to copy the book, and also throw away the stern section as it is not even close to the shape in the book!

I think the mast holes in the deck are about correct, but I also have a 'spare hole' that does not relate to a mast or hatch...fortunately the deck planking can cover this. The kit guide does not show enough detail, so thanks for the advice about buying the book. :)
