Alan,
Thanks for turning the pages, my worry about the main Victory buckets is that you need about 21 to go across the poop deck, now I reckon they must be about 3mm tapering down to about 2mm! or do you think just to make 21 that fit across but out of scale ?

Steve,

Jase,
Well I had a another go at making those buckets I found it better with Lime a softer wood to turn, I was wondering if you have had the time to try your new Proxxon lathe yet and what type of wood you find best?

Trev



Hi Trev,

I have had a play with bits of scrap etc. I do find softer wood easer to work as you would expect, but also easier to make a mess off. Harder wood gives you some advantage if you are doing tight shapes like banister spindles etc. I am of the opinion, at the moment, that if you can get away with lime do so.
As for your buckets I would shape them first then bore the centre after. Then I would paint and try and print the coat of arms glue on and varnish

UPDATE:
Victory Cross Section.

Completing the Orlop planking.

Today I completed the centre section of the Orlop decking,I found that I had to fit a false deck because when it came to cutting the planking it was so fragile it cracked, so the only way was to fit a false deck and stain the under side, the next job was to draw the outlines with a pencil using a new blade I marked over the pencil lines, I then drilled small holes around the markings and removed the wood with a knife and file.
Next try the mast and elm tree pump castings for position and adjust for misalignment all seemed to be ok.



Centre Section To be planked but I had to make a false deck to allow me to make small cuts without splitting the wood.



This picture shows centre section with the wood removed.



This Shows the Elm-tree-pump castings in place.



Elm-tree- Castings and main mast in place.



Next adding the frames to the pump well and painting white.

Thank you for having a look at my work more soon.

Regards to all,
Trev.

Thanks Ian ,my thoughts are that to build a cross section before you attempt a main build ,will give you a good idea what's going on and have that hands on experience.

Thanks again

UPDATE:
VICTORY CROSS SECTION.
080315.
Making Orlop Chests.

In this short update I am showing a few pictures of the Orlop chests which are custom made to fit between the riders. Also I will be making a few seaman's chests in a variety of styles and sizes, on these I will add the brass strip to make the metal bands for the lids.








Thank you for looking
