Matthew 1497 by Ilhan Gokcay - Scale: 1/50 - Finished


Recommended Posts

Finished the sails. As material I’ve used white thin shirt fabric. After very bad experiences with tea, this time I have dyed the cloth with fabric dye. But I didn’t followed the instructions. Dissolved the dye(dark beige) in hot water. Put the cloth in it for a short time. After repating this a couple of times I did get the right color. As I’m not good at sewing I use starch to make the clotch hard (like paper or card) This makes me to sew more easily and also it’s easy to make sharp bends at the edges. After sewing I wash them a couple of times to make the cloth soft again. For the boltropes I use the zigzag stich. At one side the needle hits the space but it’s not a problem. This is historically not correct but I think it’s acceptable. And added a bonnet to the mainsail as it’s too big.

I have attached the sails to the yards and all the rigging to the sails at this stage. Next I will put the rigging on the ship. Finally I will attach the complete yards with sails and rigging to the model.
