Feast of the Assumption - August 15th, 2011

The "True Shipmodelers" work also in the mid-august holiday, so I decided to work . . first as caretaker for my mother-in-law to substitute the true caretaker that is now in holiday (for 1 month and 1/2 . . .) but, since my workshop is in the same house, I can continue with the cross section.

I worked to mount the shrouds above the main top, The deadeyes are here smaller than at hull level (3mm instead of 5mm) and this made the work a little bit more difficult.

Wednesday, August 24, 2011 - End of "Grisella Party"

Eight days before the beginning of the "Grisella Party" (this is the name I decided for this process), today I finally finished tying all the ratlines of the shrouds of the mainmast.

It was an hard way and I am fully aware of the huge work carried out by those who have already tried this experience on a complete sailing ship. Compared to my work on a tree alone and not fully rigged I do not know how I would have tired and nervous.

After learning the specific technique to make the knot to be used (taken from the book of Lennarth Petersson's "Rigging Period Ship Models") I started slowly. The first few days after tying 5 or 6 lines I had to stop, but in the last times I could make even fifteen without stopping. Luckily in this period of time I am involved in making the caregiver to my mother-in-law, so I was able to capitalize on the availability at any time of the laboratory, and I had the opportunity to play several sessions per day.

I confess I had not even tried to run the knot used for the head and the tail of "griselle" therefore also in this case I used the same knot for the internal ones, which holds up very well. However, I applied a coat of diluted glue on the knots before cutting the twine in excess.

Here are some pictures of the work.

And here finally the lower element of the main mast. While the other shrouds are complete, here there are only four while in the real ship I think there were twelve.

Now the adventure continues, but for now I want to recover from the stress, release the hands that have a tendency to knot themselves and rest for a couple of days. In the meantime I'll give some coat of paint to the display board. Sincerely, Jack.Aubrey

Friday, August 26th, 2011 - Yards installation

Today and yesterday I dedicated myself to the installation of the masts and yards to set up some running rigging. I had to spend quite a bit of time to figure out all the way around, but once I made the first chapter and test on the smaller yard, the work proceeded quite well, so that today I can show you all the yards installed.

The first two yards from the top of the main mast (main royal yard and main topgallant yard):

As you can see looking at the clamps, visible close to the hull in the picture below, all operations have not yet been laid down in their location. The clamps hold them together a little strained, nothing more.
I intend to set only the maneuvers at the right time because otherwise an error may become unrecoverable. I am sure you will understand the reason for some misalignment between the yards and the tree: they are almost exclusively due to the fact that the running rigging is still loose.

Finally I need to fully decipher the pattern of the mounting points of the rigging, I think that there are some errors in the drawings (to be verified). For example, in the two pinrails at the base of the mast, there are a total of eight pins while the cables that you will have to end there seem to be many more. . we will see.

In spite it is a very simplified scheme it is still relatively complex, to be studied carefully. Now I have to think about the fitting of the sails, which seems to be the next step. Their assembly is yet to be studied and understood. Matter for the next few days.

Greetings to all, Jack.Aubrey

I see lots of really good difference between your model and the OcCre one I did many years ago (will post the build log some time next week)
Will follow your build with lots of pleasure.
Always fun and instructive to compare 2 build from 2 different source at 10Y difference Thumbsup

De Agostini partwork of the Santìsima Trinidad, that was made up of the full model and the cross section, are most probably a redesign of the OCCRE kit, tailored over the needs of a partwork.
There are several small differences between the two kit, but the many other you probably discover are from my personal responsibility: I have added many details not included in the kits but most probably realistic, considering the shipbuilding technology available during the Napoleonic Wars.

Monday, August 29, 2011 - Sails

I had the opportunity to closely observe the sails distributed with the booklets, in order to study the best way to mount them and, above all, to display them.

I immediately discarded the idea of letting them loose: would hide, once in the display case, virtually all the rigging and the great deal of work that has been done to equip it.

So I focused toward a solution already presented elsewhere in an italian forum (http://www.forumscuoladimodellismo.com/t226-le-vele-di-un-vascello-del-xviii-secolo) that is visible in the image below, taken from the famous book by Lennarth Petersson "Rigging Period Ship Models". Obviously I am referring to the part visible in the left side of the image.

01 Vele001.jpg
y4mLPlbeplI3rmDCBjRAX_sQcVqzVenJohnfIL-8EQNUTnFWtUq3D0cAlbrx4YHSBFUYXqHDcJYQBHOLKwf8ZRNNgeZCu2TACHK2cWrHG1s67wCP74ZEh3BnZGrS5nAMpT3H_q2dEO6TkEcJe6crK30mF4SFdPs90kwxmAxDiTGoMCpMLwvWr__OsSyOsRk_Tpc2ktL4BtWc1LGSPO5QKYFqQ


But as I watched the sails, I also realized that, although valid globally as presentation, were somewhat coarse in the seams and, above all, they had the vertical seams generally "out of scale". In reality what made me decide to make them from scratch was the fact that these seams were not only not in scale but they were not all at the same distance, which immediately struck the eye.

And then I searched and I found the suitable fabric. It is none other than the famous fabric used by A.Baranov to build the sails of his Panteleimon Victoria and described in the discussion mentioned above.

Below is a photo of the fabric, pure linen, which simulates, already in the plot of weaving, the typical vertical seams in all the sails. A great advantage and help to realism. In addition it also has the appropriate color for the ships of the period of the Santisima Trinidad.

But since I am not able to sew, either because I'm not capable, but above all for the lack of suitable hardware, I commissioned the work to a tailor I know. The problem is that I have to wait the end of September.

So for the moment the site most likely will stop this trend for a while and will continue describing better the display case.

We'll see how the situation will evolve, I don't exclude to resume the Soleil Royal shipyard, if I'll found enough time, which is still waiting to progress from the last achievement: the first planking . . .

Sincerely, Jack.Aubrey.

PS: my example to follow, at least for the yards and sails of the main mast, is here below, even if it's for me surely impossible to duplicate:

Saturday, September 3, 2011 - Display Case

After spending half a day to prepare drawings of the sails for the tailor and having acquired the canvas and the necessary material, I dedicated all myself to the display case.

Among the many options for the background wall, which I suggested and evaluated some options time ago, in the end I decided for a solution ever described above, but that I loved it. The only drawback of this solution, the color, which I could not find if not white, perhaps due to the small amount that I needed: 1 kg package, the minimum size available. I only used a few part. I would preferred a slightly cream or light brown colour but I didn't find, but surely would have been for me the most.

This is the same material that is used to dye the facades of houses, a type of very thick paint that is mixed with grains of sand (I think) and is applied with a brush, and then, once applied, it is levelled with a wood plank and, at the end, presents an scratched effect. Given the size of the picture here proposed, this effect can be only seen in the first image below:

These are overall views. What we now need are the three sides of plexiglass. For this I have a trusted supplier that will come into action as soon as possible. According to my intentions should be in three pieces glued with special glue and will be fixed with some small screw on the timber base. I must still look for the right material at a hardware store.
I know that there are some brass wood screws with the thread inverted where inside there is a thread for normal screws. The first part would be screwed into the wood support and maybe even fixed with some assembly glue, the second is for a screw that will hold the plexiglass that will be removable for maintenance.

In the three images below I made a test of inserting the subject of this topic in its planned place.

At this point I need to stop on both paths because on one hand I have to wait for the new sails (as I wrote earlier), and, with respect to the display case, the baton passes to the plexiglass artisan.

Coming back to reconsider the sails I could use the ones I decided to discard to make a bit of experience with them before working on the final ones. It should ease the work later. Regards, Jack.Aubrey.

When I see such a section with complete masting, I realize how tall these masts were in comparison to the size of a hull.
Imagine the strong wind forces towards the yards and mast, under full canvas

Tomorrow, October 17th I'll go back to my home after a short holiday at my daughter's house near Pisa. I have been here in Pisa for almost a month but anyway I am very sad to leave my daughter alone.

On the other side, a positive thing when I'll be back at home is that I can resume my ship modelling hobby. At home, with regard to the section of the Santisima Trinidad, I have to resume two important things:

1) the plexiglass artisan phoned to inform me that the case is ready; so on that front I should be in the final phase;

2) for the sails, I did some tests while I was here in Pisa and now I have everything clear on how to proceed; I tryed to cut and tuck, ready for the final seam, but I wasn't able to sew them because of my TOTAL inability to make straight seams with the sewing machine.
I thought I could at least try with my wife or daughter but unsuccesfully. This confirm my decision to rely on third parties. As soon as I'll be back I'll involve a tailor, as I had in mind from the beginning, and I'll solve the problem.

So a little patience and then I'll have finally finished this blessed project that has been going on for more than two years. In the meantime I'll work on the Soleil Royal, another model I'm building: what is expected here is the second planking . . .

Best regards, Jack.Aubrey

Thursday, March 22, 2012 - The model in the finished display case

After a long time, during which I waited in vain news about the sails from the tailor, I'm still waiting to see something of them (!!)
In the meantime, due to the need to deliver it to the Ship Modelling Association "Magellano" who wants to exhibit this model at a planned fair/exhibition of ship models in Verona, the homeland of Shakespeare's Romeo and Giulietta, I decided to install this model into its finished display case before releasing it.

Today in particular, after the return from Verona's exhibition, I proceeded to place it in its final position in my house.

Below are some photos of this new "picture" although I sincerely hope to receive soon its sails in order to install them and finally put an end to this project.

Regards, Jack.Aubrey.

Today are now more than two years that I have positioned this model, in its case, in my house.
The case is internally totally free from dust and until now I had not any need to open it to clean the inside.

On the front of the sails, the situation now is that they are ready for a long time and are just waiting to be mounted on the masts, but until I decide to remove the model from its display case they will rest in a box along with the remnants of the parts used for the construction of this cross section.

Having at the moment no plans to resume works, I would consider this project closed . . not having the time and the will to progress the whole in order to install these blessed sails. Right now my priorities are different.

Sincerely, Jack.

Hallo @jack.aubrey
we wish you all the BEST and a HAPPY BIRTHDAY
Birthday-Cake
Are you working on a new project?
Thank you very much for the greetings, Uwe.

Regarding shipmodeling, in this period of time, I'm totally idle.
I sold the house where my workshop was located and I had to stop any activity with models. In addition the Covid19 lockdown forced me to postpone any activity to find a new workshop location.
In theory, to restart, I need to find a new house with an additional room to use as workshop and to move there everything. :)
Very simple plan . . very easy to say or to write but not to do !!! Overall I would be happy to achieve it within one year !!!
In the meantime I developed some plans useful for future projects with CAD software. Till now I developed 15 plans and I can continue . . . so, much more than I can imagine to build in my life !

There are so much beautiful ships and too less time (and sometimes to less working space.
We are all crossing the fingers.....
