It is now +/- three weeks since I went back from Tuscany and it's just few days I began to think back to shipmodeling. Two days ago I reopened the Gokstad Viking shipyard, which, if everything runs well without glitchs, could be completed in a relatively reasonable time, that is, before I'll return to Tuscany in September.

On the other side, regarding the HMS Guadeloupe, everything is still in wait state. First I need to collect my thoughts because more than six months of inactivity made me forget many things. In Tuscany, I concentrated more on the history of this ship and, having discovered the existence of an original contemporary plan available at the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich, I intrigued to buy it.

Definitely a good purchase, which clarifies many aspects regarding the appearance of this ship, which also differs in rather important points from the French project: figurehead, breakwater, main piece of the knee of the head, quarter badges, shape of the taffarel, positioning of the shrouds. It's my intention to take pictures of these details, to illustrate in deep the differences, in future posts.

Meanwhile, thanks to the collaboration with another modeler who is building this same model (he decided to name it "Le Colibrì") it was started the realization of the ship carronades. A master of these parts was made. More in deep two of them: a) one for my friend who uses the original "Le Colibri" carronades, reproduced in detail in the ANCRE plans, b) while for my model, which was armed after his capture by the Royal Navy, the master was made using a English-barrel pattern, almost similar but not equal to the french one. Thanks to researches on the internet I found the design that I needed.

Finally, my friend found and contacted a company in Gazzada Schianno (VA) which set up the fusion process of the pieces needed starting from the masters. All this is the result of my friend work, I limited myself, due to my absence, to simply pick up the pieces and to pay the due amount, amount which will then be divided between us.
 
Below are some pictures of the guns barrels, both for my Guadeloupe than for Le Colibrì.

Both barrels in the same image, left the English ones. .

Cheers, Jack.

PS: The color of the metal, which in the pics seems almost golden, is strongly distorted by artificial light, in reality it's very similar to silver (the material used for casting is a pewter alloy, I don't remember the right name). Obviously, the pieces have to be treated to give them the classic "gun metal" color . .

I finally took a few pictures of the HMS Guadelupe plans I purchased at the Greenwich NMM.

The five images below proposed highlight the five areas that I have (so far) identified as main differences between this plan and the one provided by the ANCRE monograph of "Le Cygne".

But . . I forgot to take the same images of the ANCRE plans, so we'll have to wait I get pictures of them too. Now we can only visually introduce the five differences shown here below.

So please . . have some patience for a while.

1st difference at prow where no one knew until now how it was done: the figurehead. In addition, the bow shape is different, slimmer and slender.

01 Brick%20de%2024%20Plans/20160611_114237_zpsigmpluxt.jpg


2nd Difference: the side quarter badges are totally missed.

02 Brick%20de%2024%20Plans/20160611_114302_zpskjwrajos.jpg


3rd difference: the profile of the transom/taffarel is different from "Le Cygne", narrower and with square gunports.

03 Brick%20de%2024%20Plans/20160611_114415_zpsqajhnadd.jpg



4th and 5th difference: the shrouds positioning of foremast and mainmast are different than "Le Cygne"".

04 Brick%20de%2024%20Plans/20160611_114246_zpspkhdqmrq.jpg


05 Brick%20de%2024%20Plans/20160611_114252_zpsg8j2xzwa.jpg



But there are also other minor but still important differences.
As soon as I can spot pictures of the ANCRE plans you will probably understand better.
That all till now.
Regards, Jack.

Having recently finished another model (the Gokstad Viking Ship) I have resumed the shipyard of HMS Guadeloupe . . my long term project.

I needed some time to reorganize my mind about the tasks to be accomplished and I decided to complete the elements that I was working on before temporary closing the shipyard: the ship boats, launchs and lifeboats.

Now I'm workin' on the longboat, the larger of the three. Before closing the yard this was the situation:

01 Brick%20by%20JackAubrey/P1100393_zps7wuwc84s.jpg


So, I started to double the hull frames, as shown in the following picture . .

03 Brick%20by%20JackAubrey/20160827_105229_zpswznoyasa.jpg


and then began to set up the internal fittings . .

06 Brick%20by%20JackAubrey/20160830_085103_zpsqxjwbq6x.jpg


After this step, I applied my usual wood oil on the internal sides, to hughlight the wood colour, last three images are shot after this task.
Regards, Jack.Aubrey.

I've been three days in the hospital for an invasive medical examination. So my modelling tasks had a stop for a while, but yesterday I resumed the ship boat and added some new elements . . . Here below some of them. Rgds, Jack.

Well done for getting this diary back together. I know from experience how much time it takes to recover and repost pictures into diaries. Crying
