HMS Victory Cross Section by Antony - FINISHED - Scale 1:36,

Recommended Posts

Hi Shipmates.

Thank you for the likes and comments.

Drilling holes for the rest of the treenails today. Wow that's some 800 per deck :)

The next deck is being milled and sorted into suitable timbers.

Apart from the spelling in my last post... The treenails are soaked in Colron wood dye (Jacobean dark oak)

Will add photo when I get back on the PC.

And the planking spelling should read " stood on edge"

 

Thanks for looking in.

Regards Antony.

Hello shipmates.

  Well its time for another small update.

 

Today while working on the topdeck I made a template for the hanging knees.

But to my horror I forgot to add then on the middle deck :(

So managed to cut them out and add them to the middle deck.

First time I have used super glue :) on a model ship.

The copper wire is only for testing the jig for the bending. Will use brass for this.

Hi Shipmates.

Thanks for the comments and the likes.

Decided to try something new.. Cutting the outer planks some 48 each side of the hull.

 

Started by glueing the black card onto the face of the Cherry timber.

post-2328-0-47601900-1403636537_thumb.jpg

 

Timber now cut with the card already glued onto one edge ready to plank.

A close up of the result. :)

post-2328-0-58428500-1403636627_thumb.jpg

 

Found some moulding in my local dolls house. Quality is very good.

post-2328-0-21869500-1403636595_thumb.jpg

 

made up the decoration to match the mouldings.

post-2328-0-28719600-1403636548_thumb.jpg

 

Just adding a few bits to the quarter deck.

post-2328-0-39900300-1403636572_thumb.jpg

 

 

Made up most of the furniture for the quarterdeck.

Going to start planking the outer /lower hull this week.

 

Thanks for looking in.

Hello Shipmates.

A large update as I have had a lot of time building.

I made up some mesh for the hammocks my using some tights (fishnet) stretching them and then applying PVA glue until dry. The knit does not show when in place on the ship.

Have also faced off both ends of the ship (Fore and Aft ) makes it mush more pleasant to look at :)

 

Will cover the copper plates with a very thin film used to cover book covers. This will stop little fingers pulling off the copper plates.

 

Thanks for looking in.

Regards Antony.

The net idea is excellent, never though of that. You can stretch it to the size you want and then seal it to  stay. Excellent idea. Your work if top notch. keep the pictures coming and Thank you for sharing this with us.

Antony the section looks like it is nearly finished. The film you mentioned for the copper plates how does is follow all the surface modulations or is it some sort of spray?

Hi.

Thanks for your nice comments and likes :)

Michael . The film is very thin and flexible 100% clear plastic. It comes in a roll in many widths.

Needs a lot of care putting it on as there is NO second chance to get it right.

Would not be suitable for normal hull as there is very little stretch in the film.

 

Regards Antony.
