HMS Victory by Paul0367 - Constructo - Scale 1: 94 - First wooden ship build

Recommended Posts

I have finally rigged my last canon. That's right and anyone reading my build log will know I've passed this of for over 12 months and the lower picture is showing my last tie to make them complete.... I know I have the two upper deck canons to instal after a little reseach to find how they were held in position. I now have my stairs ready and beams cut but need to turn the pillar which will support them.

Thank you Rich....

I recomend two things. 1 very sharp scalpel blades, which you will use a lot as they need to be sharp. 2, Magnifying glases. The rest is measure twice and cut once affair. I am adding the diagonal sections that were as the real ship but not all of them have them for some reason not known.

Thank you Rich... mmmm Pictures, maybe but knowledge, im just scratching along copying off an image in a book. I have noticed my compass cabinet is too far forward and have since repositioned it 5mm back. I hope your Christmas went well and Happy New Year.

Have not worked on my ship for a few months, going to start again. I am also working on the netting!

Do you plan to fit bed-rolls to your netting, Paul ?? I've seen one USS Constitution builder make his using bakeable modelling clay. They've come out looking very realistic, and I plan on using the idea for my own build, when the time comes.

You may need to scroll down a few posts from the link in my post above. The bed-rolls are put in over three or four postings.

2017 update on where I'm at, should be my completion year. Oh noticed the handrail surround has an upper and lower rail, lower added. I know the real ship had a fawn coloured netting but on this occassion I was running with what I had been supplied by our guys at Constructo, black. Finding the correct colour let alone scale proved quite difficult.
I have been looking at my future no 2 ship build and so far it's the Swedish Vasa, for no reason other than its different.

Great work! I guess you are not masting and rigging your ship? I like it this way so the wood working can be better appreciated.

Submarinemen. Thankyou for the kind comments, Rich, Oh yes, mast and spars were already fabricated months ago despite going all out on detail I know will be hiden but only for those whom don't look, she will also carry full sails.

Thank you kmart and also thank you Submarineman, I have quite a lot on the Vic but I will try and print them. I have changed my grates from flat to curved. I have also started the rigging and I am trying to do them as the real ships done not constructo version. The mast stays are only test rigged to check all is well. I have since fitted the bowsprit and gammoning is being done.

Paul (Sir), As I prepare for rigging; do you have a sequence of what is done first?

Thanks and what an awesome job. You are my mentor and inspiration. 

Very respectfully,

Rich

Mentor and inspiration, that's a scary thought as this is my first and excuse the pun were in the same boat, sorry that was bad, ha ha.

I am in the same predicament. whats to do first and I will publish my method in the end, I am surprised we need to ask this question on this site to be honest, either that or were missing the subject in the many out there. I looked into it and pinched the below from another modeller reading this though is scary what lies ahead. Im currently on standing rigging. I am away next month so all work stops in most of February

 

1.Standing rigging – stays , shrouds, backstays, bowsprit standing rigging. I start with this works from foremast down shrouds and proceed going up and next to stern.

With proper tension of shrouds, stays and backstays position of mast is adjusted.

This is very important to control position of masts using plumb-line.

2.Yards furnishing. I install blocks and standing rigging on yards as also yard’s truss or parral. After fully furnishing of yards is time for attaching sails and running rigging: lifts, clew lines, leech and bunt lines, reef tackles

Next is time for attach sails to the yards.

3. Yards with sails are installed on masts and required running rigging is made - from topmast sails going down.

4. Remaining running rigging is installed: sheets and tacks, braces.

With proper tensions of sheets, tacks and braces the yards are shifted into

required position.

Tension of bowlines can help form bunt of sails.

 

Wow I've hit a milestone page 30 of my build

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.
