You are using an abacus Mark ?  :D  :D  :D

I have to magnify the picture to see the scale planks......

That means you are doing a great job with that planking or is it the meaning that you see the scale of the planks ?

Forgive me if I sound stupid.......

Colour of my hair  :(  :(  :(  or age.......

Sjors,

 

The planks are scale size.  Thus, a 1 foot (304.8 mm) wide plank in real life is 3/16" (4.7625 mm) wide on the model.

I would say that learning here is mainly trying to understand what's goin' on (and how) and if you're lucky: If applicable apply to your own (future) build(s).

Proof of life... it ain't dead yet... :)

 

The main wale needs sanding as does the next stake down (up in the photo) but I'll hold off until I get more strakes done towards the keel.

 

Planking on the "gun port stripe" (such that it is) is done.   I'm still sanding and need to finish opening all the ports and get them shaped.

 

The bottom photo shows in blue what will be ebony..

She's looking good Mark. It's going to be a real nice contrast in color with all the different wood species in place.

 

Cheers

Mark,

 

You have your work layed out for you ... again ... Like the ebony contrast you are going to use.

You're making some great progress Mark - far from a 'dead' project :)  The planking looks good and the 'painting' with wood will provide some very nice detail.

 

cheers

I guess it's about time I did something....

 

Gunport stripe (for lack of a better nomenclature) has been sanded, re-sanded, ports cut, re-sanded some more, gaps filled and sanded again... :Whew: I've applied one coat of wipe on poly to the stripe and to the counter to protect it.

 

Anyway... onward to the port side.

 

Once the port side is finished, I'll add the ebony chain wales and the French version of the billboard which runs from the stem, past the first port to the start of the second port.

As always, feel free to enlarge the photos by clicking on them.  Any advice, etc. is always appreciated.

I agree with Augie! From the perspective in the first pic, she looks to be about 4 feet long. Definitely a sizable ship and you're off to a great start with the planking Mark!

George, Augie,   Thanks.

 

George,

She's 24 inches long on the main deck from stem to transom.   The table she sits on is 3 feet long.

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.
