H.M.A.V Bounty, Constructo 1:50

Post by Sgtmik » Sun Oct 30, 2016 12:07 am

I should have started this build log some time ago, here goes anyway.

I got this ship from a friend who started the build but got frustrated and gave up. When I got this ship it was partly under way and I was concentrating on building Endeavour. I put Bounty away for a while and then started back on the Bounty.

I decided to paint this model. I did a bunch of searches online and found a color scheme I liked.

Hello Mike, that's a fine looking hull, will look impressive when fully complete. Does it have sails? or will it be rigged without.
Regarding shaky hands, there is a green colored masking tape, from Lowes most likely, that comes in varying widths and when put ontop of pre painted surfaces will not lift the underlying paint. The narrower widths can be laid to follow a curve and does not leave the paint with the raggedy edges like the white masking tape does, great for doing pinstriping.
My college semester finishes in a few weeks time so I will have six months building to do two months (yeah right!!)
Every day when I sit at my desk doing homework the Endeavour hull is within scratching distance begging me to work on it! most of the time it is in the way but it remains there as a stark reminder.
Look forward to your build log.
Regards
Eric

Thanks Eric,
This model does have sails and yes I am planning on using them. I also have two falconets left over from Endeavour I thinking of using. I know that bounty only had 10 Culverins but I had to add a brace on the hand rails. It looks like a gun mount.

Hi Mike, no I'm just a student, at 63 the oldest student in the class and the college and older than my teachers!
I am doing a Diploma of Software Development learning two computer languages Java and C#(sharp) which is above C++.
My last foray into computer languages was in the '80's doing BASIC on a Commodore 64, although the intention is the same the syntax is somewhat different.

Many of the accessories for this build are missing so I am having to fabricate or substitute several of the fittings. I just finished with the windlass. I bought a windlass kit from Syren Ships and adapted it to fit the Bounty. I am also substituting a custom ships wheel, aand rigging blocks I got from Syen Ships.
Eric, I used the tape you recommended and it works great. :music-rockout: :handgestures-salute:

The dark wood and panted areas you used make all parts of the model stand out nicely.
Happy modeling,
