Amazing work!
May I ask how you went about blackening the brass details? First picture show them fitted without blackening. Did you apply blackening after fitting?

Thanks Peta, Saint, Sea Hoss & the likes 🙂 Very much appreciated.

 

Some small details:

Deadeyes and Chainplates.

 

Some years ago I allready prepared this to build like shown in the AOTS Alert book.

For various reasons I did not like it, and .. it is documented HOW to do it in the original plans.

So I tried it this way with some prototyping 🙂

As it seems to work, "mass"-production started.

To get the needed angle for the chainplates some "rope" were fitted ...

And the chainplates were pinned with micro rivets. There is nothing glued (yet).

Hi Dirk,

Great way of getting the Chain plates to the correct angle. 

As always, l am blown away by your modeling skills. Thank you so much for sharing.

Best wishes as always, 

The Lazy Saint.

I forgot one step with the deadeyes, a bit of bending 🙂

Then some delicate drilling action to get five holes there instead three. (The other side looks bad ... haha)

Rivet as axle:

Next some more preparation and metalwork.

And today some open heart surgery 😉

 

Sherbourne were started eight years ago and I can't remember why I did some things I did them. Something that bugged me for a while was how I made the stern.

That is simply wrong for a cutter. Today I had the mood to change this, deconstruction 🙂

I used ebony here.

It's not perfect but much better then before I think 🙂

Finally!!! I was starting to wonder when you would be de-constructing.... 🙂 It has been a long time without it.

Speaking of the stern. Are you sure that the transom was without the fashion piece (aftermost timber)? Although it may be too early for it - but approximately since the beginning of the 19th centurey smaller ships usually had fashion-pieced transom. See Cheerful for example.

Hey Dimitry,

 

Pretty sure she had a fashion piece but as this "is" a starter kit and I started 8 years ago with much less knowledge it is like it is. I will not change that, way to risky 😉

Hi Dirk,

your Sherbourne cutter looks fantastic...

I like the color giving and the wooden tones, combined with the black. Also the clinker planking, and all the deck fitting out.

Very nice photos !!

Thanks so much Nils, Thomas & the likes 🙂

 

Some details and an error fixed at the boom. So there will be some black paint needed 😉

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.
