Postby neptune » Sun Jun 08, 2014 8:18 am

Year or period represented: 1898-1932

History: Built as a local fishing boat in 1898 and wrecked on Kangaroo Island South Australia, while riding out a storm, the winds changed and drove her ashore after the Anchor gave way.

Scale 1/48, hull length 13 inches

Construction method / materials used: Jelutong was used for carving the hull, with Huon pine for stem, keel, stern post and deck planking, brass was used for the various mast and rigging fittings also the deck winch.

Research: The model was built for the grandson of the boats original owner, who supplied the plans and photo's of the boat.

Some of you might remember this model from the Model Ship World forum.

The hull was carved from two pieces of Jellutong, and glued together with a spacer the thickness of the keel in between, and dowells for fixing.

The next set of pics show the hull carved down to the deck, the stem keel and stern posts being cut and also fitted and the false deck and planking being fitted, and also the cabin, if you have any questions just ask, best regards John.
