There always needs to be hammer on cliché pictures of model ship builders.

Even when they're rigging.

They're not that far off.

Or to paraphrase Schiller, "What wilt thou with a hammer, speak!"

Is that from your 'black and white' Victory? I hope it is... ;)

So did you pay the stormtroopers to keep the public away while completing the installation? You are a brave man-I would have been hauled away by the authorities for foul language while attempting that precise work!

Have enjoyed the posts and amazing work!

Are you really going to cover up that lower deck with planking? :shock: :shock: :shock:
Or only some selected small areas?

You know, you could also make another Victory to show the middle deck. And another for the upper, and... :big_grin: :big_grin: :big_grin:

But let me congratulate you first on the completion of the lower deck. It was an amazing journey! :thumbs_up_1: :thumbs_up_1: :thumbs_up_1:

After finishing the lower deck project, there was a short breather - the exhibition stood still for about 0.035 minutes - I immediately took advantage of the nice momentum and continued:

[gruen]New adventure: middle deck and beyond, projected construction time (experience value) approx. 12 years[/gruen].

The coamings of this area off site ...

Image

... and on site, first fitting samples ...

Image

... and for retrofitting for the folds so that the gratings don't fall onto the lower deck....

Image

And then glue was put underneath the coaming and another public wait for the glue to set. Model making is soooooo exciting :-)

Image

... and waiting ...

Image


And then it came, as it had to come, the public open heart surgery ...

Image

The stairs had to be lifted from below as for the fold of the coaming, the thread was to lift it up ...

Image

... and the whole thing quickly-quickly ...

Image

... without bumping into anything, because ...

Image

... there was superglue at the bottom of the ladder.

Image

And then just let go of the line and done we are :-)

Finally the coamings around the main hatch ...

Image

... and some impressions of the finished area.

Well, now I have to cut some more deck planks ...

In the meantime, all the deck beams were in place and the stove could be provisionally adjusted.

Image

The next stage was the area between the stove and the fore capstan.

First, the capstan was removed and the bottom plate from the 1788 plans was added. No one has yet been able to tell me its purpose ...

Image

And then glue it in and press it ...

Image

... and public waiting, oups, the life of a model maker can be sooooo exciting ...

Image

And with that, something had happened that no one had ever dared to dream of, that no one had thought was humanly possible, something earth-shattering:

This was the last piece to be fixed on the lower gundeck.

Herewith I call this adventure finished :-)

It was only 12 years since October 2009 for the lower gun deck ;-)

Respectfully, with kind regards, Daniel Fischer

Due to the stress of the end of the year, I never found the time to record what has happened in the meantime ...

The last work with the deck beams was only the prelude, the overture, even the prelude to greater things! So read and be amazed, truly unexpected things were going to happen!

For the power was with me!

Image

But first things first. In mid-November the stupid virus got me, but thanks to vaccination only a mild course. Thus "boosted", it was an easier decision for me to help the colleagues from the club at the booth during the games fair in Stuttgart. As those were public handicraft lessons, my small one with the yellow and black lines that make her look slim was supposed to look pretty. With all the battle damage removed, into the car with all my other children - "Are we there soon?" "I feel sick" "I'm hungry!" "I have to pee!" and so on - and otherwise uneventful drive to the fair to set up :-)

Image

The booth of the Arbeitskereis historischer Schiffsbau ...

Image

... and the corner with all my bits and pieces.

Image

Because remember, fun is the fair life if:

- you can send your offspring to the "Reeperbahn" ...

Image

- and there is enough food for the fight :-)

Thank you Marijn,

that was 1 mm sheet, painted a rosty color, scribed, and polished with cotton and brown pastell chalk. Dad gave that matt gloss I wanted :-)

Beautiful work on that kitchen Daniel! :thumbs_up_1: :thumbs_up_1: :thumbs_up_1:

What material did you make the tiles from?

But also bigger things happened, but never had the time to report.

The force was with me!

Image

But before it was back to the model again :-)

Repairing battle damage. I had simply installed the first beams without pre-bending but under tension, the correct curve was so automatically achieved, and it had worked quite well. At that time. What was not considered:

Image

Wood works, and in the meantime the beams had simply become longer and they were suddenly 2 mm higher and had even taken the supports with them :-≠

Removal of the whole beam was not possible without too much collateral damage, so a cut was made in the middle with the resin saw ...

Image

... and sawed out the overhang and ...

Image

... it fits again :-)

Accordingly, the coamings of the middle deck could finally be continued.

Image

Also the small kitchen could finally get its foundation. And the tiler was also there.

Image

So things are happening again in the state of Victory :-)

Image

Greetings, DAniel

Happy new year to you all, happy modelling and stay safe!

Empty the vaults still: I did the fitting cat blocks fore the cat heads :-)

Sidepockets?
Post Posted: Tue Nov 09, 2021 6:45 pm
  Post subject:  Re: To HMS Victory and beyond  Reply with quote
I am quite confident that the port was not there at Trafalgar. But one needs it for the "Portsmouth-condition".

Anyway I am getting more and more aware that for the Trafalgar-condition extensive modifications on the bows and the sidepockets are possibly needed, beyond the level of many modelers that tackle the Heller build. So most attempts to build the Victory will become a hybrid, as is my own actual model.

Fantastic!

Was the entry port definitely there at Trafalgar? Some little voice in the back of my head is asking this question...

I already mentioned the next steps, now the next step was the rest of the entry port. Here, too, it is wonderful to see what else is still possible :-)

But first define the size correctly and I realised that most entry ports on models are a bit too small, because they mostly align on the top edge with the gun ports besides. So I added a little more air at the top ...

Image

... and provide them with a frame for the passage.

Image

The scrollwork is presenting itself beautifully, note them in comparison with my epidermal ridges!

Image

Image

And what is even more important, even in this size well paintable, for this I tried different heights in some printer's rounds, but I think now it fits :-)

Image

Image

Enjoy!

Awesome news!! Thank you. I knew there was a reason I haven't started building yet, and not just laziness. lol
