It is all very nice and well done Dirk. The photographs are off a outstanding quality and show your ship and what you have done in a very nice way. Love your log to look at and how she is getting a nice and well build model.

 

Keep up the good work.

Not only Busty Syren also Baby Sherbourne gets an Update today ;)

 

I started to build the deadeye ensemble. First I did the deadeye strops as suggested by the kit with the strops going through the channel.

But thats not the way it's done on the Alert, so I redid it.

The ebony moldings strip for the channel to lock the chainplate assemblies.

That's the way it should go, before I finally fix the stuff I need to place a dummy mast to get the right run together with the shrouds.

Dirk,

 

Good job on those deadeyes, and the channels look good too. The grooves are really necessary in the former for the lanyards to sit properly and look right. The same goes for sheave holes in the yards etc., in fact more or less anywhere a line passes over a sheave in a spar.  It's a little tricky to do, and it probably won't be visible, but it's worthwhile for the finished effect.

 

I totally agree about the mast being in position, to align the deadyes and chainplates. I did this too, and it's a good thing to point it out, so others can follow this tip – it's rather difficult to rectify it after the event! 

 

Seeing it in the photographs, I wonder if you are going to change the kit stand or alter it in any way?

Good to see you dusted off the Sherbourne, truly stunning build. Amazing to see what can be done to improve these kits and I'm miles off this standard

Thanks all :)

 

@Kester: Yepp, the ship stand will change ... sooner or later ;)

 

Today it was time for the Sherbourne to follow Syren and get her name. More letters more tricky also cause of the little curve. It's - again - not perfect but atm I don't know if I can make it better.

Dirk, nice job on lettering. However I like the way you have them side by side. The difference in the way the sterns are planked show how different the vessels are.

Just like the Syren, this build is phenomenal.  All I can do is stare with my jaw hanging open while looking at all the meticulous details you add.

And best wishes for the New Year to you and your girl too, Dirk. That makes a great 3D card.

 

You brighten up each year for us with your modelling skills, so here's looking forward to another set of your great displays (combined with hers), and hoping that you both enjoy good health and happiness throughout!

Dirk,

 

I'll be starting Sherbourne shortly (once I've finished Convulsion), and the one think I'm not happy about with Convulsion (my lack of planning completely to blame for this) is the deck planking. I'd love emulate what you've achieved here with your decking! First of all, did you replace the deck planking with another material (Caldercraft have supplied 0.5mm THK Lime), or did you use the kit supplied wood and buy stock for the edge planks and waterways?

Your AutoCAD drawing using the original plan is a neat idea, I'll have to do the same!

 

Also, the windless looks so much better than the kit supplied windless! I may have to copy that as well!

 

Your Pimped Out Sherbourne is great, keep up the great work!

 

Cheers

Jonny

Hej Jonny,

 

I used 0.5mm pear strips for the planking. The rest is also pear. I did not used the supplid wood.

 

cheers,

 

Dirk

 

PS: Your Convulsion looks great btw!!

Dirk, thanks for the kind words.

 

Thanks for the quick responce. Was the Deck layout you referenced in to AutoCAD, available on the NMG website? Do you remember the reference number for the drawing? I'm a CAD designer myself, so I'd like to do the same thing. I'm aslo considering kit bash pimp out like you've done!

 

To describe your work, I must paraphrase Tim Westwood from Pimp My Ride UK - "The king pin of the Model Ship game"!
 

Cheers

Jonny

Hi Dubz.

           Well i dont think i can say anythink differant to what everyone has said,your workmanship is outstanding you have turned a very ordinary kit into something

          very special.I am building Artesania Latina Red Dragon and i would be interested in how you intend to rig the tiller unfotunatly it is not made very clear on the

          drawing,as for making the gUn carriges i tacked all my blanks together with c/a and then machined them all together on my mill,however after seeing your method

          i will useing on my next build.

 

                                              Regards Janet     ( B)
