Days are passing on an on. Got some time to take build a step ahead. The first level of covering is over. It's march end and very difficult to spend time with her. Yet to order some parts for deck fittings from a hobby shop. Planning is to cover her with copper sheet pieces in bottom or maybe apply wooden sheet pieces. It is very tough job to give real look but I am on for it. Probably will apply a second layer Sunday. Then will take the job of mast work.

She is shaping up now pretty well. Deck is there and started second level of planking. Very time consuming job but defiantly it will give very beautiful look to her. Probably by Sunday it wil be finish and then actual challenging work will start.

Wow!
That kind of planking is not easy.
Memories getting the planking to bend, on a cutter, circa 1968...

@gajjark
You and some other boat guys and that railway paul drive me nuts with your exquisite work!

 :hatsoff: sir this is just an attempt to bring memories back. Many would agree with that now a days hobby is not be taken as a hobby. It is mainly a toy for elders now a days. Trying to continue all the traditional way of model making.

Wait for couple of days. Will take you through the era of late mr aurora. By making rc of tiny smite from foam sheet. But right now focusing on alert.  :)

After reading your comments I remembered about my smites so took them out of my stuff. One is damaged during the transfers, though repairable. The second was partially completed and is demanding completion. Maybe next project.
Another old boat lying for restoration

Krunal: I couldn't agree more with you!

It is like Art Appreciation. First you view the artifact as a whole, then move on to the smaller fine detail. In our hobby, modern times have led to the Instant Gratification Syndrome; RTFs are the rage, and the full beauty of the artifact is lost, only the first quick glance predominates

Post by: Gajjark on May 11, 2014, 03:45:14 PM
Ready fenders with rope work.

Thanks Iyer sir for your complements.

Completion of mast. And deck plates. 70% work of shaping up the parts is over. Next step is to set up the mast and sails with rigging rope. Blocks and pulleys will be fixed up at the place. Then will fix RC and finally maiden sail. Keeping my fingers cross and need your wishes as this is the first attempt of RC conversion.

A Master Shipbuilder.
And an occasional source of balsa and ply.
I have happy memories of the time he visited me and left me a pack of balsa sheets for a token amount.

This brings back memories galore of the time i used to live the adventure classics not on tv but the original unedited versions, reading novels. From Treasure Island , Robinson Crusoe , Swiss family Robinson, and so many others, i just had to vision such a ship and always dreamt building it . Well done sir, love it , and apart from constructing it , another job is to take pictures as you continue the build.  Thank you for posting .

I am thinking to complete it but don't know why....I am not able to complete it. Every thing is made including sails and rigging parts. But now it has a reason. Going to gift it to my guru Mr K B Patel as he is going to retire next month. I think there won't be any precious than this.

What should i do with it more?

Any Suggestions?

@gajjark,

Here's a true story.
I'd been saying that all my models would be burnt.
One modeller heard of this, and asked me if he could have some of them.
He never realised that the meaning was "all my work will vanish (turn to ash) along with me"

We have met once before.
Please come again.

Regards

Progress progress progress ;D ;D ;D

Anchor fixed. Stanchion is in its place. Canon rigging is ready. Even you can notice bollards at it's place with fenders ;).

Was thinking to do rigging without sail. What is expert's suggestions? :headscratch:
