Here we go again.

First cleaning the front edge of the channel board from paint and leveling the heights of the irons ...

Image

... and then fixing the batten to hold the deadeyes in place.

Image

From near one can see the difference nicely. One more area finished.

Image

Then the gunport lanyards.

Image

Still had some sprue, that was hollowed and pulled over the candle, resulting in nice micro tubes :-)
Those bits were made from leather, to protect against friction and to keep water out. Took a needle to reopen the holes after cutting and used the intended thread to check the inner diameter.

Image

The spliced the ring onto the lanyard and hooked the ring onto the lid. Checked from near and I think it could be considered to be ok.

Image

So five or six more lids to go ...

Grüßle, Daniel

Heave!
(Quist:) Five years hard labor,
the judge says to me...
...or honorable service
in His Majesty's Navy.
What did I pick? Hornblower.
...
(Sailor:) What are we doing in the Pacific, anyway?
I tell you, he's got us all lost.
...
(Quist:) There's islands there
where we could have a picnic.
Brown-skinned girls, bread growing
on trees, where the Bounty went.
Why don't you ask Hornblower
to take us there?
What's wrong with our cargo
doing the asking?
Muskets and ammunition.
Who for? Why not for us?

Link: Look here at the still from about 3:00 min

Harrison: Come on, get on with your work. Get on with it.

Image

Those were the last words in March 2015. Last year the conversation was continued in the moment when another model fell onto the small setup: AUUUUUUUTSCH!!!

All men over board, the freshly fitted furnace in pieces. Never found the time for repair. Yesterday while looking for something else the remains were found again and also the will to fix :-)

First found that Quist took the chance to desert and run behind his brown-skinned girls. So cloned a new one using the original building report from March 2015. Also fixed the furnace and lighted the ember inside.

Image

Also a new feature appeared: The wetted sand underneath the furnace, I finally found sand or better saying powder of sand that suited fine enough for the job. Also the waterbucket found its way onto the scene. Just missing the fire engine, the hose or the wet swatters that were needed to follow fire regulations. Then checked for the right tools.

Image

Tinkerd the tongs from a spare chain iron ...

Image

... and also an anvil found itself being used in there. And here we go with the refreshed gem :-)

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

And here it is with the inspiration, from the starting sequence of "Hornblower" about 3:00 min.

Image

Enjoy, DAn

Back to the slices :-)

Luckily found some old spare decks to cut a small stripe for the visible Gangway.

Image

Then "tarred" the hammock netting, this time a bit darker than I usually do.

Image

Used some paper stripes for easy assembly ...

Image

... shortened the inboard side ...

Image

... and fixed it.

Image

Then fixed the net on the rope on the outboard side, always giving a touch of gravity into the ropes.

Image

Made the hammocks with Magic Sculpt.

Image

Dry test ...

Image

... and the colored with all the colors of life ...

Image

... and put in place

Image

Still thinking how the cover should be fixed in a contemporary fashion ...

Image

IF I may ask (and Im sure you said somewhere) - what do you make of the efforts by the museum to restore the color into the beige - pinkish hue and dark grey hull versus bright buff-yellow and black that you have for 1805 on your vignette displays? SUpposedly they claim that their new (lets call it 2016 version) is how the 1805 version SHOULD have looked like. Do you agree with that?

And separately, as I want to one day build Victory in 1/700 scale (yup) - is there any way to paint her in white-black checker but retain guns etc. Or the black-white ship is only ok if built as non gunned storage - museum vessel.

thank you. and your effort here is simply phenomenal, if you don't make this into a book it would be a shame. Enough people will buy it and the VIctory museum with millions visiting will probably happily sell it also to make it worth your while. :) (and you can donate some proceeds to its restoration-upkeep!).

Hello pascalemod,

thank you. till have not enough deeper information about the research and especially about why and how were the findings to be judged and how the evaluation and the consequences were taken. It is not impossible, but still the idea how a or some bits of this color are really the reason that the whole ship was painted like this. Anyway, I much more believe that the ship was quite a patchwork of 50.000 shades of yellow ochre after some time on sea and several repairs.

In between 1820 and 1860 the Vic was black and white and the guns. But then the ship started to be modified already quite a lot, starting with the round bow and a different rig. Ok, the rig changes are minor for 1:700 ;-)

After missing information on how the covers were fixed, I opted for easy folds and will change that as suitable information comes..

Image

Still got some netting on the face side and fixed an iron hook.

Image

After a transatlantic voyage, I suppose the ship to look a bit tattered. So some man are meant to do do a small face lift :-)

Image

Image


So the last slice is done. Still need to clean the others up and fix them on the frame. Soon this project is finally to be finished :-)

Titel: 1805 mid Atlantic, return from the Caribbean, ...

Image

Image

Enjoy, DAn

O Goody, I missed the 215th anniversary that happend 4 days ago of that little depicted scene.

Logentry on the 08/08/1805, somewhere in between Gibraltar and Spithead

"08.08.1805 painted quarter deck and hull"

:-) :-) :-)

And that was only 16 days before the ship underwent a short refit at Spithead. Within 7 days she got the guns removed, the spars sent down for check, the sails checked, and plenty of caulking was done.

Afterwards she went to sea immediately but the delivery of a larger quantity of paint suggests, that the painting went on on sea. Recorded is the 10/09/1805 that the Breadroom was whitewashed.

But still good to know, that exactly today, 215 years ago on the 08/12/1805, the main topgallant sail split in a squall.

Nice still from the film, one can see nicely both colors and how messy the wood is :-)

From Victory in her true Colours:

A friend from MSW discovered a smalll detail in the large Turner painting: The anchor lining, almost hidden by the fallen fore sail.

Image

Looking at the Turner scribbles there is a line, that could be interpreted as the bolster for the lost lining.

Image

Looking at the Queen Charlotte of the the same time, one could see how it should have looked.

Image

First the frame was added ...

Image

... then I realised that the lower batten should have been the bolster. Took one step that was left from the entry port and it fitted :-)

Image

Unfortunately it broke while fixing :-(

The replacement part was bent the wrong way, so I took the time for a cup of tea and did hang the part inside to make it flexible, bent it the right direction and let it cool down in its new shape.

Image

After fixing it, I realised that it sat not properly ...

Image

... even the paint did not help.

Image

So another disassembly took place ...

Image

... and then it fitted :-)

As the anchor lining was to protect the hull and the irons from the anchor, I wanted to show some scratches. First I took a spare anchor to simulate its way up ...

Image

Image

Image

Image

But how do those scratches look like? It was not a metal hull with clean rounded scratches, but I opted for some splinters on the edges of the planks and some flakes of paint coming off. The color I oppted for a warm siversih grey, like old exposed wood is showing.

Image

Need some black ink to simulate depth.

Image

After the lanyards was fixed ...

Image

... things were done :-)

Image

Cheers, DAniel

So the trilogy of the 4 slices is almost done :-)

- 1765 to 1780 (as build)
- September 1805 mid Atlantic on the chase of Villeneuve
- 1920 before docking
- and the latest revamp 2018

Still have to make a nice frame.

Simply fantastic! :thumbs_up_1: :thumbs_up_1: :thumbs_up_1:
I love this concept, and I love how it turned out.
It is certainly worthy of a nice and classy display, so I'm looking forward to see what you'll come up with.

I hope you will do this with the stern next (open and closed galleries, barricade on the poop, ...)? Or maybe the bow (original figurehead, and then beakhead versus round bow)? :big_grin: :big_grin: :big_grin:
