Hola Javier,
Your little ship is quite impressive and I can really appreciate the level of experience and tenacity that you have to build her. Building smaller scaled vessels is a challenge in itself due to wanting to add as many details as possible but not to the point that these items would take away from its overall appearance. I too built a small vessels and was quite pleased with it. the following two photos will show you my Mediator that I built in a scale of 1:147. I have also added a link to the site at Model Ship Builder if anyone is interested in seeing it. Many thanks, and I look forward to your next post, Raymond. 1420746196_4329_FT19703_20150107_163620_.jpg 1420746197_4329_FT19703_20150107_163746_.jpg
This is where you can find my build log for my Sloop Mediator.

Thank you, Raymond, for your comment and your compliments.
I like your Sloop Mediator a lot.
I am delighted to meet another modeler who loves small scales, and I agree with you on the difficulty of selecting with criteria which elements of the boat have to incorporate into the model to obtain the highest level of detail without distorting its appearance.
If you want to see other models of my collection (this one does the number 67) you can check my web page:

The boats in my collection are made at different scales. They have in common that they are models of small boats with lenghts that not exceed 20 meters in reality. I keep my models in an approximate range between 70 mm and 110 mm in lenght, which allows me to keep a large collection in an apartmrnt.

At 1:200 scale a 74 cannons will measure approximately 25 cm. of lenght (hull only) by 7,5 cm. wide. I think it is possible to make a model like the one you propose, bur I do not see myself motivated to do it, since I am more attracted to smaller boats and for civil use. In the past Rochefort Congress there was a model of HMS Victory, made by the Japanese modeller Etsurou Tatsuboi in scale 1:300, with all its rigging (without sails and with a closed hull, it is true) that was a true masterpiece.

Hola Javier,
She looks amazing. Can you show or explain how you make the blocks for your boats at that extremely small scale? You must have eaten a lot of carrots when you were growing up because the details at that smaller scale is outstanding.

I use the pieces that are used to make the gratings. I drill in each tooth one or two holes depending on whether I want to make a single or double block. Then, with the triangular file, scratch the edges and round the corners a little 1712C8A6-FE80-4024-837F-EA679026E74D.jpeg

The tartana is finished. I have followed closely the monography of the tartana emma (ANCRE), of Franco Fissore, although I have allowed myself some licenses because of the small scale. One of the aspects in which I have been guided totally by the monography is in which the model has been rigged, with the jibs to starboard in a boom especially armed for it.
I hope the result will be to your liking, because I have really enjoyed doing this.
