The day was promising since the early hours of the morning. . maybe a little cold at the beginning but then it's so fine that . .

In the afternoon I decided to start building the mounting slip for this model. May seem strange but making these things is for me a great fun, and even this time I felt the same feelings.

My feline assistant also agreed with me that it seems very good and that should do his job properly.

Finally, the keel I assembled a few days ago is in the proper position to install the other hull elements.

Soon I'm setting up for the proper installation of the bulkheads.
These days I have prepared a device for correctly fixing the bulkheads.
For "proper" I mean perfectly vertical and centered on the keel.
Below two images of how this device should work.
Obviously I need to leave the bulkheads locked in its position for half an hour until the glue has completely griped before proceeding further.

02 Ragusian Carrack/30102017/20171030_174651.jpg


However, before installing the bulkheads, it is necessary to apply walnut strips of 1.5 x 4 on some of them.
These are characterized by the fact that they will remain partially in view on the finished model.

The preliminary tasks before the bulkheads assembly continue . .
On three of these bulkheads I preferred to do these finishing jobs now, where it is much easier to work when disassembled than when they have been mounted in their final position. These three bulkheads are almost over.

01 Ragusian Carrack/01112017/20171101_160550.jpg


Only the one here below needs further finishing, since ten windows must be installed in the many rectangles delimited by the lighter strips.

02 Ragusian Carrack/01112017/20171101_160558.jpg


There is also a kind of semicircular window in this other . .

Really enjoying seeing this ship take on shape.

Looks really good and the timber you have looks to be very good quality.

Venerdì 3 Novembre 2017

I finished installing details on the visible parts of the bulkheads # 3, 12, and 13. Next step is a careful review of the building instructions to see if I can finally proceed with the bulkheads assembly or if there is any other preliminary task to execute.

The part I covered on the bulkhead #12 will be visible with difficulty. The instructions only meant to paint it in black. I decided to cover it with strips and to install three doors as on the other two bulkheads. A little extra detail.

01 Ragusian Carrack/03112017/01 Ragusian Carrack/03112017/


Bulkhead #3, the most complex; it seems to me quite well, even though it was a hard business to unplug the edge of the windows (laser pre-cut) from the solid nut board. In fact they were very fragile. That is why I prefer 5-ply avionics plywood for this kind of detail.

Your time spend getting those windows out of their fret was well spent as they look very nice indeed.

I have never seen any that are so nicely detailed as these.

Sunday, November 5, 2017

Saturday I took the decision to start assembling the framework of this model.

Usual methodology but I need to be very careful about the alignment of the single bulkheads.
A great deal of precision is needed because there are 14mm round longitudinal reinforcements that must be inserted into holes specially cutted in the bulkheads.

By luck the pieces are really accurate and so far I hadn't any problem till now . . honor to the author of this kit.
Let's hope this luck continues even for the pieces that have not yet been installed.

I used the device I showed you a few days ago to hold and glue the bulkheads and I have to say it works pretty well, but I cannot proceed too fast . .
so, "autogenic rush management training".

Below the usual photo gallery . . to next time, Jack.

Very nice update Jack.

I think this is probable the first time i have seen a model were tou add so much detail to the bulk head before its glued into the keel.

It looks very nice and i hope it all continues well for you.

Tuesday 7 November 2017

I've terminated the assembly of the hull frames !!

Aside from the time it took to fit everything in accordance with the written instructions, I had, for my choice, to do additional tasks to reinforce the whole assembly.
Infact, in spite of the presence of some 14mm walnut rods that strengthen the lower part of the frames, I felt more appropriate to add further reinforcements to the upper part of the bulkheads.

This area was too fragile for my thinking . . . then I worked out with "ad hoc" plywood pieces and wood strips to strenghten it.

After this activity I feel more confident about the rigidity of this "building". .
I want now add that I have not yet finished with this task, for example I still have to reinforce the top of the fourth, fifth and sixth bulkheads starting from the stern.

Before anyone notices me, I inform you that the seventh bulkhead from the stern is not perfectly vertically mounted . . I must inadvertently shift it while it was not yet perfectly dry without I noticed it.
However, there are no visible negative effects, so this is an error without any significant consequence.

And now I attach here below the first five images of the work done.
