Hi Daniel, I want to thank you for looking in on my build log of the HMS Victory. Some how I missed your post, it was not intensial fore sure, for this I am sorry. Love what you have done with your build of the HMS Victory, I have visited your sight many times and often wondered how you come up with all your great ideas. I have been think of adding a few of these to my log if that is ok with you.

Daniel,  As always, love your build log and always learning from it. I thought the following photo was interesting.  Making chain plates for the restoration of the Charles W. Morgan (Whaling Ship) at Mystic Seaport, Conn.post-68-0-42774700-1369611757_thumb.jpg

After my small sidekick ...

 


 

... a quick return to my main project as the cap-squares arrived yesterday :-)

Immediately build the template ...

... and assembled :-)

Also the gunlocks ...

... almost to small to be pictured, but still managed to fix them easily by using the sprue to be inserted in a hole underneath.

 

So mission accomplished, the guns are completed :-)

And with ease I managed to triple the number of parts for each gun from 7 to 21 ...

 

Hurray

 

Best regards, sincerily, Daniel

Daniel,

 

Amazing amount of detail you've put into those canons, they look great. Can't wait to see what they look like fully rigged.

Gun completed....?

That's what you sais last year, after doing quit a bit of rope;making and rigging,and before you discovered PE....

I'm wondering: what will be the next thing you discover to enhance your already perfect guns....?

casting bronze in scale 1:100? functioning flintlocks?

... functioning flintlocks ...

 

... ?!? ...

 

...hmmmm...

 

When I was in Austria start of this year I had the great honor in meeting with Willi Meischl, wunderful modelmaker and weapon collector. He showed me an english marine trombone with working flints. I did not miss the chance and got a nice shot of it while flashing with both states: Arm back and the small cover protecting the powder closed and arm in front with the cover swung open and the egnition.

 

Fascinating as agood friend of mine would say ;-)

Daniel,

 

The way you add figures to your model brings so much life to it. Amazing and superb work. As Popeye said, the combination of your imagination and your talent is something quite special. But please Sir, may we have a little food on our plates! :P

Love this thread..

 

Makes my 1:64 scale effort look positively bereft of detail!

 

But at the same time it shows people what could be done.  Of course at 1:64 it would be a little easier ;)

I suggest that Dafi will also do a 'cleared for action' version of Vic.

Same man but ready for battle.

Next there will be a version 'Vic by night', all men in their hammocks (apart from the men of the watch, that is)

...hihihihihi....

 

Thank you Sirs, but cleared for action is the most boring one in my opinion - just guns and their equipment, everything else stripped ...

 

...boooooring ;-)

Daniel,

 

It just gets better and better,absolutely brilliant work. I fully expect that you will be making scale Georgian Furniture for the Great Cabin when you get to that part of your build. Keep up the good work :cheers:

Thank you all :-)

 

@Popeye: I do not know of racks in between the guns as this would interfere with the handling. As far as I know, extra shot was kept in nets/tarpaulins in the ships center line.

Why do I have a suspicion that there's some cups of beer, some ship's biscuit, and salt beef in the crew's near future? :o   As always, Daniel, your research aind investigation into how things worked and looked has paid off well.

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.
