The anatomy of HMS Bounty

posted in: Ships | 0

This was my first “difficult” scale model. It took me more than 300 hours to finish it, and with it I discovered how little I knew. It was not just a large and complex ship, but a mix between ship and diorama, which taught me what life was like for the men who lived and died in it. Several years later, I used the plans to design and build a cross section of the same ship, that you can see under “Dioramas” category.

Jábega with winch

This model is, at the same time, into two categories, ships and dioramas, since it presents a boat recently washed up on the beach with the help of a winch. It was made following a photographic report by the author, for which the distinctive elements of this typical fishing vessel from Málaga (southern Spain) were manufactured and added.

Dandy II

The Dandy was my second model and the first with wooden liners on a false keel. It was not easy and, if you appreciate it in detail, you can see my lack of experience. However, I learned a lot with it and I think it is a good choice for modelers who are starting.

Bluenose

This was my first model. I started it in 1994.
It is a model for beginners, with rigid hull and without real wooden lining. Even the sales were painted and seamless, but the work of the ropes, the capes, and the whole rigging make you an expert in a short time.
