so it's actually cut out that way and not just to show ??
I was looking at that the longest time, figured it was just to show the walls..
how would people enter the end little section ??
that and my walls would need to move up about 1.5 cm to match the floor plan.. I can fix that easy and use the end part of the long wall for the angle section under the beam..
I'll see if I can remove or modify it without causing damage or a mess if not, I can live with it that way.
I probably wouldn't have added the extra details and lights without the help here lol just be satisfied with the kit itself.. glad I did, makes it more interesting..
I made two connection points. At the stern, as you can see and on the bow in the cabin. It was easier For Led i use http://ledcalc.com/#
Draws the branches and the whole scheme nicely.
I hid thebatery 9V in the hold as a larger cargo package with cables long enough to be replaced. It is safer because if the power supply breaks down and the voltage is high,and them kill avery LED. The stabilizer inserted in the circuit warms very deeply so I solve it because I inserted a 9 V battery
been working on my ship when ever I have a chance, had a few busy weeks but still got time on weekends.
Didn't post much so not to be boring with just simple little things LOL
finished adding the wall in the lower deck, didn't risk removing the floor and cutting it like JScolum.. it was well glued in position so, trying would have resulted in damage.. but, it still looks way better with the wall in versus nothing down there to look at.
got lights installed and might add two more behind the walls.
planked the mid deck, practice doing it with actual shorter planks. added some details, weathering and varnish. set the mast rings.
noticed that no where in the instructions they mention to line up and test fit a mast to make sure they sit proper and of course line up so the mast sits how it should.. I did that and adjusted as needed, at least enough that if a slight adjustment is needed, it will be easy once that time comes..
next come the detailing of the mid deck, lights covered with the top deck once all done.. getting there, taking more time because of the extras but
here's a few pictures of the progress.
I have the same ship, but from Occre. This will be my next build after the Endeavour and am contemplating installing LEDs into the Bounty as well. A good idea of yours. Probably the yellowish glow in the photos is down to the camera, as you used white LEDs.
Did you connect the LEDs in series or in parallel? I reckon about 15 LEDs will be used. Can these be connected directly to the battery, via a switch or must a resistor be placed into the circuit?
I used white LEDs, but glowing yellow so that they were not too visible as they are not available. There were no other light sources like the light from the candle which was yellow. For Resistor use this : http://ledcalc.com/# Check white diode voltage and current
If you want to power it from a transformer, be sure to give it a stabilizer in the model. My friend's power supply broke down. He gave too high voltage and all the lighting of the Black Pearl went with smoke. Remember that after you someone may also want to light up. He would be sorry if he burned.
