HMS Victory by Rich.F - FINISHED - Caldercraft - Scale: 1/72


Recommended Posts

Hello All, Thanks for the comments and Likes, as always very much appreciated.

 

Well Been a few months since the last update, I have Completed (almost) Lines, Fore and aft, Starbordside atm. 

 

Could not be bothered at the moment to do the main mast lines.

 

(Fore )I could make a few improvement, as this side is not the viewing side.

(Aft- Starboard)  Really Happy how these lines came out.

Hello All, Thanks for the comments and Likes, as always very much appreciated.

 

well things are moving along very nice and a steady pace. 

 

As the wife is away i have the place to ones self, 🤐

so i thought i would sit back watch some tv  and do a few small parts ( no cleaning up yet).

Anchors,

well this has baffled me at the moment, as instructions said reference plan sheet 5, i have been though most sheets and not found any info on Anchors, and even the rigging  of then..

 

is anyone able to shed a bit of light on this.?

Hello Rich,

Regarding the anchors, if you search for Gil Middleton's log of his Victory build  he has broken it up into sections, you will find an article on the way he constructed the anchors there. I used it for reference when I got to that stage. I'm sure you will find it very valuable.

 

Regards

Gary

Rigging from Jib boom via Dolphin I searched how that to do with this rigging as i could not figure it out, So by asking a few questions. came up with, Drilling out 5mm Dead-eye, Lost a few on the way but, most made it, not the easiest 59ac2ac1100b2_HMSVictory(200).jpg.8be8b4bdc1cc46c5a90ac5f74060106e.jpg

You are so fortunate to live close by HMS Victory and be able to visit any time you want. I was fortunate to spend 2 full days touring the ship with 2 friends and a private guide. I experienced my most important historical moment while standing on the quarterdeck. I suddenly realized that Victory was older than my country. What a treasure she is.

Been a long while since a good update. RL getting in the way with a new job.   But back for a while as we are moving.  Going to be doing a little bit more on the for stays, then it will be boxed until the move 

 

Ratlines 99% Complete.. Worked on the Mizzen stay and the Main Stay.....

Hey Sam, Indeed it does now even worse, now we are moving. She is all boxed up ready for the move., How ever the Enterprise is small enough to move in the car

 

I would say about 6 months until she is unboxed, I will be working on other small parts as we wont move for about 8-12 weeks but slowly boxing things so we shell see.

 Greeting all,

First let me start by saying i hope each and every member on MSW, is safe and well.

 

Second apologies for a very long gap..

 

Ok....

It has been a good few years since i was able to work on this small ship. House has come a long way. 

With not being able to work. Unable to continue on installing  a kitchen. (They cant deliver it).. so long chat with the boss... told her im working on the ship,, i have a good to months... cant just sitin front of the Tv.

 

THE Victory was kept in her storage box all the time. Moved about the house while work went on..  the following pictures are as of today.. 

 

Once rate lines were complete, as most agree, a painstakingly long boring task.... killed the back.. worked out icould to a 5 run the break... about an hour of game time....

Hello All, Thanks for the comments and Likes, as always very much appreciated.

 

Yet a very fine day I could be out side doing something , Wife would not let me up ladder no the roof as we have a very limited ED at the moment..

 

I and finished the backstays  of both mizzen & main .... For what ever reason early in the build I think when I started the rat lines, I used the wrong size thread,, so no out of 0.75mm black... ( i now have this no order. so a few days rest 

the only one I found fiddly was the Main Topmast Breat Backstay,,

 Thanks everyone, for likes and comments, very appreciated, 

 

I found the "fore yard" (now I know its name) was not a small task as I could not clearly understand its construction. Looking for part that I do not have....

 

With the help of "Shiyard sid"(many thanks)

 

Waiting on just a few more hours for glue to fully set. Il clean it up a bit more before painting etc..

 

Had to order a few more ring and I may of missed places or lost some..

Hello All, Thanks for the comments and Likes, as always very much appreciated.

 

Have finished the Fore Yards,, Bloody pain, Thus due to (my) lack of understanding what was needed and visual, But help from others and the Build guides..

 

Been pondering on how to tackle the parrell" If thats the correct word..  took me a rather long time to find the part as i was unsure and it (Part No..607 &708)

Now the next step is my problem trying to figure out how the they fit to yards,  I cant find clear enough pictures on it..
