I also finished the two pipes for draining water from this deck:

Next the ports for the anker cables are on. On this scale the actual different sizes will show so I'll need to drill 4 different sizes..

 

Best,

Hi,

 

I love your deck work obviously you used cocktail sticks for the treenails. But how did you do your caulking as even up close like this it looks fantastic?

It's realy practical, just drill a hole widen the opening a bit, bit of glue and one soft hit with a wooden hammer. so that only a simi spher ends up on th outside. the most time consuming is finding the brush with the right size of tips.

Have you tried using a lighter or candle even and just melting the ends of any none blobbed brush. As I've often thought that's what they look like. Except the makers stick something on instead.

Thanks,

 

The treenails on the inside are cocktail prickers indeed, on the outside they are chestnut thorns, colors better with the cherry. 

 

The caulking is done with charcoal. Gently rub the side of the planks agains a piece. The effect however only comes out nicely by finishing of with danish oil. Even if by sanding the opening between two planks gets filled oiling makes it clean again and brings out the black.

 

I've tried with melting plastic wire of different types, never really got the effect I was hoping for....

 

Best,

Michiel

Thanks, I hope to show some progress again soon. We moved a few months ago and the admiral only lets me setup my new workshop once I finish some other renovations to the house...

 

Best,

Which isavery wise decision of your admiral.

But after all, that is presumably how she got her rank.

We moved a few months ago. There are still many things to do including settting my workshop up again :-(

Due to a move and all the renovation that came with it it has been quite some time. Most of the equipment is still packed and the ship itself stored away. But finally I allowed myself some time to do some work on her. These are two figurines that sit on the outside next to the previous set. Still a bit in a rough unfinished phase but the basic shape starts to appear.

Finally, about a year after our move I managed to get the workshop back in place

The tail of the lion curls through the next piece.

 

This is the first version I made long ago, when I still though one should use soft wood for carving :P

Hi there,

 

not much progressm but I spend quite some time improving on the figure head. It comes up in detail at the end of the track:

I still need to learn a bit about closeup shooting with the gopro. Probably get me a macro lens. That should help i guess.

 

to be continued..

Hi Guys,

 

Here's a little overview on my progress on the guns, paining the 3D prints:

 

Blank as they come from the printer:

&mode=thumbnail&size=large

after the primer:

 

&mode=thumbnail&size=medium

 

base layer of black:

 

&mode=thumbnail&size=medium

 

Washing with green to obtain a weathered bronze look:

 

&mode=thumbnail&size=medium]

I'm using the golden fluid acrylic.

 

Thanks for watching,

Michiel

You should start selling those 3D printed guns..... I guess I would be your first customer. This sice (1:50) is not commonly available.

 

Very nice build! following it with lots of interest and fun!

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.
