HMS VICTORY by Kevin - FINISHED - Caldercraft/Jotika - 1/72

Recommended Posts

I managed to complete the main stay and preventer lacing, and put two new lines in from the foremast to the bowspit, I just need now to work out what they are called, I had not provisioned for the blocks fitted to the gammoning - and hope that what i have done will do the job, even if they are over sized

Good morning everyone

 

standing riggng continues, I put the Bumpkins in and secured them into place with a bracket, I have managed to get quite confused where some of the lines get secured, like the Jib out haulers, and the 4 main stays, so that is work in progress, 

now i am going to move aft and start the main mast upper shrouds

Yes grant, i do but i am having a slight issue for the routing of the stays to the pins, and knowing the names of the stays in the first place, i have found that i have three block places taken on the knightheads port and stbd, and those dont tie in with the longridge book.I will possibly have to redo some if what i have completed is wrong, but for now i have moved aft to do some more shrouds

Good evening everyone, 

 

Well I found out where I went wrong, the martingales throught the Dolphin striker were incorrect, well one line was and I had one line to many 

 

the Fore Top gallant Stay, Flying Jib stay, Fore Topgallant Mast Stay and Jib stay still need to be secured

 

presently I have moved onto the Main mast, completed the Jeer lashings and started the upper shrouds

Hi Kevin,

 

Boy is that ever a jungle, it's no wonder your getting confused.

 

I don't know if you've noticed but in the print there is no Anchor Hawes, looks like plugs have been fitted from the inside, just to add a bit more confusion.

 

You've picked her up well mate and she is going to be a big beast when your done, keep it up mate.

 

Be Good

Looking real good mate.

 

Here's a poser for you Kevin, just when your sitting and relaxing in the evening, I will admit I don't know the answer myself.

 

If you took all the lines both Standing and Running and laid them end to end, what would the total distance be.

 

Your getting there mate, keep going and you'll be done before you know it.

 

Be Good

good evening mobbsie, I am sure I can find that info out wrt total rigging distance lol you want it in meters or yards

Intentions were to move her back into the mancave, as Dobbie is now eight months old, and has to understand that i have a life of my own as well, but first we wanted to adress a condensation problem with the freezer, and from there it all went wrong "what have you done today" thread will get a post soon

As of tonight she is now back in the cave, buit still needs a few hours organisation before i can get a move on

good evening everyone, ratlines are taking me forever, but considering, when all the sails are in position very little will be seen, one or two will need to retied as they look a little sloppy, but with the diorama that i intend they will be full of little people

Looking good from here, Kevin.   I'm still surprised you can get her in and out of the house as big as she is.

lol all the battle damage will help towards the finished result, but she is just still manageable at presenrt

About the NRG

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. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
