Endeavour by maggsl_01 - FINISHED - OcCre - 1:54

Hello my freinds

 

thank you all for your feedback.  I decided not to attach any more sails at the stays. I tried to furl them - but that did not look any good.

So the best will be to renounce any further sails.

 

I like the look with the sails quite much - but I think next time (Fregatte Berlin) I will not work with sails. If you give so much attention to the yards and all the fixing of the yards to the masts then it is a pity to hide this work under the sails. Also the view to the deck is restricted.  

 

BTW - does anyone know from which time on the crawfeed were used?

 

Thx alot my mates

 

Cheerio

Hello my friends

 

yes - it is done. My interpretation of Mr Cooks famous Endeavour is ready. I finished the build, only a stand (ordered) and a hood will be necessary. But this is just a final moment.

 

It is almost one year that I spent with the Occre kit. The building was always a fun to do although there were some tricky steps to take. Especially the instructions are something to criticize - and here indeed the instructions for rigging and the sails. They are too superficial and do  not show the details for many things.

 

Nevertheless - all at all I would recommend this kit with good conscience to a modeller with some expierence. You can improve the model with additional items like the buoys for the anchors, the covers for the windows  or additional rigging like the backstays for the topgallants. Therefore it's good to take a look at the AOTS Endeavour.

 

I will later take pics when the stand is done and create a gallery. The next time I will take a break until the next model will be on the desk. I am not sure if I start with the Friedrich Wilhelm zu Pferde by Euro Model orf the Fregatte Berlin by Corel. Well, let's see

Hello my mates...

 

thank you all for your kind words. I am not so happy with the sails and will probably not use sails anymore. But I wanted to try and see. Both I did, and now I can decide in a considered manner.

 

As mentioned I am quite content with the kit. In every kit there are more or less things to improve - so the effort for this kit was average. I like to have real plans and drawings more than the photo-booklets as plans give more Information about size and shape. So you can better handle with improvements or changes. The book AOTS Endeavour by Mr Marquardt is an enormous treasure-box. The descriptions and drawings there gave me some inspiration  on my way through the build.

 

Nevertheless this model is just one Interpretation and I see so much stunning models and logs around. Every modeller has his own sight and his own Level to create a almost perfect model. I always compare my doing with the progress I see in other logs. It is so satisfying to learn from others and to give the own knowledge to others.

 

I hope the parts for the stand will be delivered this week so I can complete the model and take some more pics (esp  details)

 

Best wishes to all my friends and followers

Hello my friends

 

now this is the last update for my Endeavour

 

I finished the model and created a Gallery in the Gallery section with 22 pics

 

Thank you all for your attention, your comments and all the kind words.

 

I will take a break now, but I will be back with my next project. This will be the Fregatte Berlin by Corel, but sure not before April.

 

Cheerio

Hello again :D

 

I have to do some additional updates... I did some very big mistakes... All sails rigging - clew garnet (?) is wrong. I always thought that something looks strange. But I did not recognize what. But yesterday I found out what was wrong. All the ropes have to be fixed on the backside of the sails not on the front. But I did all acording to the instructions. But the instructions are bad in view of rigging. They do not differ between front and back and they do not show exactly the Details.

 

I can not leave this failure. So I redo all relevant rigging (I estimate about 20 to 25 hrs all in all)

 

I will show some pice when I am through and then really finished :D

 

Cheerio

Hi all

 

Addition: I just purchased a small used book from a second-hand-bookshop. It is an old german book about rigging... should have done earlier :)

 

cheerio

wow Max........sorry that I missed your build of this wonderful ship!   you've done such a beautiful job.......must have been a real heartbreak to find out about the clew rigging.    you'll fix it with no problem.....just gonna be a pain to get the clew blocks on the other side of the sails.   a year is very quick for a model of this caliber....amazing that you did it in that little time.   great looking ship my friend......I certainly hope I don't miss the Berlin.......I'll keep my eyes open for it start  ;)

Hi Ron, Steve

 

thx so much for the further infos about the rigging of the sails. I change my rigging step by step - is not as difficult as I thought - just a lot of extra thread. But it goes really good.

 

@Steve I like the thread you used for that rigging. Looks very realistic, esp that the ropes are not too much taut.

 

Cheerio

Hello again my friends

 

I have now at least finished the Endeavour.

 

I have changed all the sails rigging according to AOTS and now am quite content with the result.

 

Thank you all again for your Attention. I started this log (and the build) exactly one year ago. Now I will have a break before I begin with the Fregatte Berlin. But I will join the MSW regulary.

 

Cheerio

Hi Ron,

 

the instructions are not that bad - if you undertsand what is the frontside and what is the backside. But I missunderstood resp did not see the difference. Now this will never happen again as I now understood the system and the function of the sails rigging. But a newbie to sails... well... But life is always a ongoing learning :D so I could learn a lot...

 

I am sure your Endeavour will turn into a proud and beautiful little ship

 

Cheerio
