HMC Sherbourne by Dubz - (Pimp my Sherbourne)

Recommended Posts

Nice to see how you build  ship with all the extra's and the skill you have. It is a great reference to me. I am an absolute beginner in this field. As you might have noticed I started on the build off my Sherbourne And use all the other builds as a guide line in what is coming to me. Your build and the foto's you take and post are very good and much enjoyed by me.

 

Merry Christmas (evening and days) and a good 2014

It's a while ;)

 

Right now I need to make a little break from Busty Syren, still no idea how to make the timbers for the headrails. 

 

Also one of the tasks I started 2014 was quit smoking and I honestly can say that sux :D I mean I feel more healthy but my brain is missing the happydrugfeeling and concentrating is a bit harder atm... hmpf.

 

Anyway I did some stuff on the Sherbourne, especially some details I developed for the Syren, smaller rings and eyebolts etc.

 

Finishing the catheads.

Decided to paint some more stuff red ;)

Adding details to the main hatch.

Starting the Swivel guns. The guns are from Chuck. They needed some preparation, e.g the handle. First removing the head.

Drilling holes.

Soldering the handle.

What a fine complimentary pair of models you have there Dirk in Syren and Sherbourne. :)

 

I took a different approach with the swivels on Pegasus I left the cascobal in place and fitted the tiller around it, but your version seems to have been common as well. Do you intend to fit a ball on the end of the tiller?

 

Cheers,

I don't think that I had ever seen your Sherbourne before, Dirk. It's a beauty, just like your Syren.

Thanks for your nice comments guys!

 

Small Update about the ball at the end of the tiller. 

I tried with silversoldering, e.g. melting the wire to get the ball -> hard to control, just soldering -> nope, couldn't get the ball attached to the tiller, so as a compromise just some woodglue and black paint  ;)

Very nice solution Dirk, btw how much better are Chucks cannons over those supplied with the kit?

Dirk, congratulations on quitting smoking! :dancetl6:  Hang in there, the harsh side effects will pass!  I know it's a very difficult addiction to quit--I quit many years ago and can fully relate to how it is...  I feel so much better, save a ton of money, no longer smell bad, and have never looked back! :D

 

I really like your latest updates, and how you resolved the balls on the tillers looks fantastic--simple, effective, and great looking (will remember this technique, as I was wondering if solder would work or not).

 

Chuck's guns look so much better than what comes with the kit--great upgrade!

 

Again, congratulations on quitting--hang in there!  :cheers:

 

Cheers,

Jay

Just glue and paint B.E. ;)

 

The kit guns are crap imo, afair I replaced the guns with caldercraft brass ones but the swivel again with Chuck ones.

 

Ja, thanks a lot. Still hard not to smoke, especially while solution finding I really miss a good smoke ;)

 

Today I made the mounting pintles for the swivel guns. I'm still not good in silver soldering so this took a while ...

A bit deconstruction were neccessary to get some space for the entry steps entry (I can't remember what I had in mind when I made them this way ;))... ok honestly I'm really used in reapinting a caprail over and over again :D

Next was some love for the rudder. Made the eyebolt arrangement for the rudder pendants and the the rudder coat.

Remade tiller painted red.

I just "rediscovered" your Sherbourne log. Beautiful model - no surprise there!

By the way, by now I have a "good taste" of those Syren head timbers. They really are tricky little buggers!  :)

Thanks for your likes and comments!!! :)

 

The rudder coat is just a bit of cotton glued on the rudder,  painted black and bring in shape.

 

Haha Thomas, tricky little beasts they are ... thats why I do a bit Sherbourne atm :D

 

Finished the rudder coat and the tiller.

Thanks BE! Bob I'll try to describe the making of the rudder coat a bit more detailed in the next days.

 

Today I made the ladders ;) Should be the last deck fitting ...

Almost finished with the stop cleat ... haha while rereading the alert book for writing this text it says WOODEN(!!) stop cleat ... hmpf ... would have been easier to make them in wood ... arghhhh :D

Dirk,

 

Nice addition – and would almost make it a pleasure to come aboard, I would have thought! :)

 

I note they are in way of the aft sweep ports, but I'm not sure that matters much. However, since the subject presents itself, I'd like to bring up the subject of sweeps and the gunport lids, specifically on the Sherbourne, in a separate post.

Hej Kester, thanks! The sweep port is fine there, see you're newly started threat ;)

 

Finished both ladders. Let the stop cleats made in brass, like the look ;)

==========================================================

 

As promised a small photostory how I make the rudder coat.

 

Take a small piece of cotton

 

Sherbourne_Baubericht_477.jpg

 

Draw the rough shape (better bigger than to small ;))

 

Sherbourne_Baubericht_478.jpg

 

Use CA glue for the edges of the shape so that I can cut them nicely.

 

Sherbourne_Baubericht_479.jpg

 

Use Edding to blackend the coat.

 

Sherbourne_Baubericht_480.jpg

 

Sherbourne_Baubericht_481.jpg

 

Glue the lower part of the coat to the rudder (yepp it's just a stick ;)).

 

Sherbourne_Baubericht_482.jpg

 

Sherbourne_Baubericht_483.jpg

 

Fold the coat around the rudder.

 

Sherbourne_Baubericht_484.jpg

 

Use some rope to fix the lower part of the coat.

 

Sherbourne_Baubericht_485.jpg

 

Next part is a bit tricky, bring the upper part of the coat in a rough shape. Final adjustment has to be done when the rudder is in position.

 

Sherbourne_Baubericht_486.jpg

 

Hope that does explain it well enough ;)

 

=======================================================

 

My Babies ;)

Dirk,

Just came across your log. Beautiful craftsmanship and love the detail. They really make the model pop, as they say.

Thanks also for sharing your methods. This is what makes MSW so valuable.
