ROYAL CAROLINE by Doris - CARD - 1749 -1:40

Recommended Posts

Hello dear friends :piratebo5: ,
 

in summer 2012 I have started a scratch build of HMY Royal Caroline 1749 in a scale 1/40. The model is made of card (mainly) and other materials (modeling clay, wood, self-adhesive foils etc.). I will proceed according to plans from the book Anatomy of the ship, which are quite detailed and nicely designed. Other documents and information come from foreign literature, which describes construction, fitting and rigging of ships from this period.

Because I want to build a realistic model of the RC as possible, I will be grateful for any comments and suggestions, which could help me to achieve that result.


 

I chose Royal Caroline mainly for her sleek lines and beautiful sculptural decoration, and also because finally I will not have to make so many cannons as on the previous models.... :)

For sailing ships lovers - here is a video with my best sailing ships; HMS Bellona and HMS Victory (modified) come from polish manufacturer Shipyard, Sovereign of the seas is my own scratch build. All these models are made of card.

Enjoy it:

 

Kind regards,

Doris

And now, how I continued with Royal Caroline.....

 

Third layer of card stripes - this was a last solid layer before finishing:

After another grinding the hull was airbrushed by acrylic body spray/surfacer (intended for cars):

For the finishing I used self-adhesive foils....

The planking (made of foil stripes) was finally improved by painting (I use Tamiya acrylic paint):

I decided to create treenails (used on English ships). On my model they are painted by 0,3mm wide tip of a micro-pencil. All are painted by Tamiya colours. The pencil tip was every time dipped into thin paint and after that was made one treenail on the hull planking.

The work continues on planking the inside of the hull and interior of cabins, also there were added some parts on the bow and stern:

Lower part of the stern was probably decorated with paintings. On my model the paintings are hand-made using Tamiya colours as usually.....

I started to make first sculptures and decorations for the front bulkhead of main cabin. They were made of modelling clay as at my previous models.
