Pinco Genvese by Angarfather

Recommended Posts

Altough Gianna is a smal ship 110 blocks are needed. 

 

I made the violin blocks konventionel from one piece of wood.

The others are glued up from layers of 1mm walnut stripes.

The result is a smal frame from walnut.

The slices for the smal blocks are made from 3mm soldering wire.

The slices for the other blocks are made from 4mm brass.

I'm loving this build, the ship is amazing, I love how she has characteristics from both late medieval ships, as the caravels, and more younger ships...

 

I particularly like the paint scheme, I'm thinking about painting the caravel I'm building, in a similar way...

Hello Angarfather,

you are doing a great job!

 

I recently found this painting of a genovese pinco, dated around 1700 and I remembered your WIP.

It represent the pinco named "Nostra Signora dell'Acquasanta" (more or less: "Our Virgin Mary of the holy water") during a fighting against two Ottoman ships (possibly an ex-voto?).

 

I thought that it can be of interest, since you are in the rigging step and since it is an original source of informations.

 

In addition (but it is too late to be of interest for you) the other two photos represent an original model dated around 1780-1820 of a pinco.

This model is owned by the Naval Engineering Dept. of the University of Genova.

 

I hope that the provided material can be of interest for your model building.

Pincos crew are only six hands and the skipper. Therefore they used such big tackles to work with the latin yards.

Hi Hartmut

 

I haven't checked your build log for a few weeks now, but now that I have...wow! Very impressive. She's turning into one very beautifully detailed and characterful model.

 

Look forward to more updates.

 

Cheers and all the best!

Hi Hartmut

 

My gawd, that's nice! It's not until I saw the completed dinghy in your hand that I got a sense of its size. Impressive and well done.

 

Cheers

Thanks to Patrick and all who "liked" it.

 

I had sails on a model 12 years ago. But a latin rigged ship without sails looks a little bit poor to my eyes. Fortunately my Admiral sewed the sails! I am very clumsy in needlework.

She's looking really nice, Hartmut! Your Admiral, Mrs Hartmut, has also done a great job with the sail(s).

 

Well done to you both.

Hartmut,

 

thats a wonderful model, it is very well done I`m curious what the other sails will look like, must be a beautiful sight, judging by that mounted aft sail, and your wife did a good Job on the sewing, I also like the carvings and the leaf Gold plated decors

Thanks. John.

You are right. Two sails, finishing the dinghy, and some details ( Cargo - barrels- sacks) and Gianna is ready.

Kindly Hartmut

 

P.s. The next build is in preparation, so it's time to finish the Gianna.

Hi Hartmut

 

I really like your 'dream world' and your wonderful craftsmanship. Also, may I say, your Gianna is simply superb; a true testament to your skills.

 

PS You can't leave us hanging... What is your next build going to be???

 

Cheers
