Doing the copper plates on the hull. very time consuming and intense.. but worth it when done. I built a jig to put the nails in and a ponce wheel to do it. then i cut the strip into 4 plate segments and attached to the hull
I haven’t posted in a while have been busy with the Mystic Seaport Ship Modelers setting up our display and workshop in the Gardner boat shop. I had Bounty’s figure done in 3D printed by a company called Aero Systems Design. It took about 3 months for them to do it as they just got the software to do the 3D model. I sent them the figure head from the plans with dimensions and the made the figure head. Here are some pics. They did an awsome job….
i havent forgotten to post here Bounty is on hold as i decided i needed to build a 1/12 scale whale boat from the Mystic seaport plans that were used to build the new whale Boats for the Morgans 38th voyage
see my new thread.... for my build
I have spent some time this morning reading through your build log and I must say you are doing a fantastic job.
My next build after I finish my little HMS Victory build will be the Bounty. so I will now be following your your progress on this build with great interest.
Keep up the good work.
