It is time for the next bunch of photos.
The orlop deck is planked so no real light any more comes to the hold - here we have a view, to get an impression how it was looking
Because of artificial light, the timber is looking very yellow, in reality the Elsbeere is going more into light red - although it is in central euorpe one of the most expensive woods, it is very popular for ship modeling
Here an example of a cut tree
Many thanks for the overall positive feedback and the likes given - much appreciated - so now it is time for the next bunch of photos
Showing the construction and temporary installation of the deck beams - these have to be prepared and adjusted before the different compartments and chambers of the Orlop deck can be finished - it is necessary to define the height of the walls etc.
These deck-beams were also in the original ship the longest one´s. Because of the total length they could not be cut out by one single tree, they had to be constructed out of three overlapping beam-elements, bolted together, in order to achieve the total necessary length of the beam. Strong enough to take over all the forces of the hull structure and the heavy weight of the main gun batteries on the above gun-deck
The connecting points to the hull structure, also with some hanging knees
Overall view of all temporary installed beams (beams 1, 2, 3 as well 25, 26 and 27 are made out of a single element, all others are made out of three elements)
The beams on this photos are still without the notches
Already some time ago, when I posted the last photos - this I will do asap.
