Tuesday 25 September 2018

Last night, around 10:00 pm a fire broke out, most probably of malicious origin, on Monte Serra, north-east of Pisa, near the small town of Calci. The damages are huge and incalculable, it seems there are 700 people evacuated and the fire is still ongoing, thanks to a strong wind that hinders the operations of firefighters and firefighting aircrafts.

Calci is the country in Tuscany where I spent 9 months, before returning to Cinisello (Milan) at the end of June and where I plan to return the month of December to spend there winter and spring. It is the place where I started to build the Ragusian Carrack, the subject of this topic.

What a mess . . I have no words

In fact, two days later, the damages seem huge: a thousand hectares of forest, vineyards and olive groves went up in smoke.
Yesterday another fire broke out about twenty kilometers from Calci, still in the Monti Pisani area.
It seems that it will take at least 5 years to restore the destroyed olive groves and vineyards and even 15 for the wooded area.
Not to forget homes, animals and flora and fauna biodiversity that will disappear.
When I'll come back there in early December it will be a sad day.

After the sadness for the great fire in Calci, luckily without any physical consequences for me (in this period I do not live there) and even for my house (apart from 1cm. of ash deposited on the terrace and shutters) I resumed work on the Carrack.

A first attempt of the second planking, in the area of the forecastle . .

The lower supports of the foredeck . .
02 Ragusian Carrack/28092018/IMG_20180927_181342.jpg


Next activities will still be focused on the foredeck, where there is much to do and helps me to get familiar with the model . .

With this new post in practice I've finished working on the foredeck . . . at least until I'll finish the second planking on the whole hull. Only then I will be able to resume works in this area and complete it.

Below are some pictures of the work done.

Now other tasks await me . . I'm spoiled for choice. Need a planning weekend and then I'll restart again next week.

Another short update . .

Opening the gunports . . thank goodness they are few because it is a pretty boring activity. I strictly followed the dimensions of the drawing and they are 7mm. per side. Translated in full scale we are talking about openings of about 45 cm per side. Do not you feel them a little small?

01 Ragusian Carrack/09102018/IMG_20181009_175612.jpg


The same ports seen from the inside. Here the work has been longer because the stays and stanchions had to be applied before. I applied a tiny coat of wood oil to see the chromatic effect of the various wood essences.

02 Ragusian Carrack/09102018/IMG_20181009_175551.jpg


Even here I could not resist and I gave a coat of oil . . the wood color immediately appeared.

See you next time, Jack.

I don't understand why some images, sometime, are not displayed . .

For example in my last message the second image isn't shown.

The interesting comparison is that the same is perfectly displayed in three other forums. For example on this one https://modelshipworld.c...ment&comment=587119

I suspect a bug in the software of this forum that fails, sometimes, in presence of the system to store and retrieve the images I use.

Any comment ?

Thursday 17 October 2018

At this point it's mandatory to finish to install the second planking on the external hull and, after, go further with new activities. But, before this, I should finish to refine the ground with a final and accurate sanding of the external hull. Unfortunately I do not want to dust everything and this leads me to delay. So I invented alternative tasks waiting for this will manifests itself.

Building of the ordnance trucks: job of complete rest even if each truck is composed of 9 individual pieces that must be assembled to resemble the finished piece. All the pieces, including the wheels, are obtained from a 2mm walnut board, laser cut. Very well done, it didn't cause any problems. For the moment, I have prepared all the guns planned for the main deck, although I will need only two in a short time.

03 Ragusian Carrack/16102018/IMG_20181016_170251.jpg


Then I started to prepare the beams for the next deck, immediately above the main deck. I installed the first two, not disturbing any future activity to see the result. Under this deck there will be two guns. They must be installed before building the deck itself. Plus a ladder and a supporting column between the first two beams.
The idea is to have all the pieces ready for when it will be time to install the deck.

06 Ragusian Carrack/16102018/IMG_20181013_174503.jpg


But now there are no more excuses: the next session will be dedicated to finishing the surface of the outer hull and then apply the second planking. Only at the end I will be able to resume work on the new deck.

See you soon, Jack.

Friday 26 October 2018 - the second planking

Having finished all preliminary works, finally, about ten days ago I started to apply the second planking to the hull.
Today the situation of the works is well highlighted in the following images: the whole part of the hull above the main wale are now covered with veneer strips of cherry wood.
There are two areas of joint of the planks, well highlighted in the part of the hull still to be covered.

02 Ragusian Carrack/26/10/2018/IMG_20181026_173423.jpg


On the right side of the hull I began to finish the gun openings for the four guns onboard. In this case it is only necessary to trim the part covered by the veneer and finish with a pre-cut laser frame included in the kit. In the next photo are visible three of these pieces already installed.

03 Ragusian Carrack/26/10/2018/IMG_20181026_173123.jpg


All the borders have already been finished, as evidenced by these stern details.
