Kevin,

 

I don't think you got my evicted spiders as I didn't evicted them yet. You have your own. :) I'm just wording the eviction notice now so they won't get to scared...

Thank you

 

Watch out that you do not burn out your sander

(I did something similar with a hand drill once)

You are very inventive making those masts. Nice to see how you extended your lathe. I have to keep that in mind for the day the wood-fever will hit me.

Hi Alexandru,

this is a good idea.

Karl,

 

I am not sure I understand what do you point out with the red arrows...

Alexandru, I have not been able to look in for a time. Now I am catching up, that is indeed a beautiful anchor. Perfect craftsmanship!

  I really enjoy watching your build continue to grow.  Your work is great to see, but I do agree with Isalbert as the muntins are normally smaller than the sashes and stiles.

For the moment I gave up on the windows after several unsuccessful attempts. I am not happy with those that are now in place but I said I can change them later if I can make a better version. In the mean time I decided not to install any masts and started the upper deck framing but got lazy with the posting till somebody reminded my of it (thanks Bob  :)) and here it is the past due update:

Fantastic progress, Alexandru. Its great to see the photos showing the whole deck. You don't need much imagination to believe your back in 1759-65 and surveying the real thing under construction! Your mastery in modelling and your posts really serve to remind us of just what feats of engineering these ships really were. One just runs out of superlatives to describe your work!

1/48 scale! Many modelers have built (and are building) HMS Victories, but how many chose 1/48 scale? I remember the Longridge model is none feet long! Or maybe the case it resides in was nine feet? I wonder if you plan to rig the model? where this huge model go when it is completed?

 

No, I finally decided not to rig the model exactly because of its size. The hull itself is 56in long. For now I have no idea where will I put her when is done but at the speed I am advancing this will not be an issue fore several more years at least.

 

SawdustDave, Bob, and everybody who liked my pictures, thank you for appreciation.

 

Regards,

Alexandru

Alexandru, I have admired the work on Longridge's Victory for a long time, your model has taken this ship model and raised it to a whole new level of craftsmanship and detail.

I agree!  I don't post much on your build because I can't find the words to express my amazement and I would just be repeatedly saying the same thing over and over.  By the way, a 56 inch long hull is nothing less than awesome!  I keep looking at the entire build over and over to see what I missed the previous times through the photos!

 

Thank you so much for giving us the privilege of seeing you work!

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.
