New update in my mounting. I made the stern hull planks, gluing one by one. The stern bulwark needed pieces over it, to do the curved edge that I forget to plan.

p?i=85e332b4c8113f26d37880284503c28d

 

More planks glued. In the right the bulwark curve are ready and all planks are in place.

p?i=11f0cd622a60e2ee4bda92bd5fe5103c

 

Here we have the capitain cabin wall. I cut one card to do the wall; later I glued the planks.

p?i=80abf028d69008f9914cc6894c2361c8

 

There are four windows. I cut four tranparent plastics square; they will the glass. So, I cut and glued some banana leaves strips to do the window frame. After the windows ready, I painted the inner side of the plastic, to makeit dark. And I hated the result, but the piece have FOUR MILLIMETERS! 😬, and my glasses was dirty, and I was lazy. 😉

The central door was made with a cardboard piece, with "bananas glued over it" 🙈! Later I made the door frames.

And the cabin wall are ready. The windows are "filth", like some Microsoft products (🙊 sorry Bill Gates, but some products realy horribles). Well, this is we can for now!

New updates.

I built the bow wall, Using lots of "wood planks" (banana leaves) strips, I was gluing according the internet images. I started with the square in the first photo; later I was gluing more strips, with white glue, using a pointed tool; In  the center I do the bowstrips hole; on the right is the result.

Here I was building the capitain cabin. All made with cardboard (sorry by the "doble" - is double  - shame!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!). On the right both, I made some reinforcements, that I use to attach cardboard pieces.

p?i=27e73fe25fdb3225749e7b38f2bca485

 

On the left the pieces attached; On central picture I made the front wall of the cabin. On right I cut off the windows shape.

p?i=1ede02f42d2b3f1f324b215ee4455de5

 

The cabin windows have lattice. to make it, I use tranparent plastics and sewing thread; I glued the thread with superglue, in a edge (in the first image); later I glued in the other side, also with superglue and I cut the excess (second image); in sequence I glued threads orthogonaly, like the first, I cuted the excess and glued the piece on the inner side of the cabin. (I hope this is cleare...🤔)

p?i=bcaad62afa35a3ce5ba6e4a7794c27e8

 

With the pieces ready, I cut to do with correct size; I painted th interior with black paint; this serves to make the interior dark.

p?i=f7dc1211d1922117892d33ccd1843747

 

I mounted the cabin pieces in the place and I do the expand part that projects backward, all with cardboard and using the internal reinforcements.

p?i=ccf4e71d0928943583ad945dc83cbc29

 

The rear windows were made same the others.

p?i=50060452207f0769ac80feb435910778

 

Et Voilá ma bateau (mon amies, c'est correct???🫣.

Gidday, that is a very clever idea. That whole ship is beautifully done. Regards, Jeff.

Well. That’s about as original as I’ve ever seen on these pages.

Thanks, my friend!

Ahoy, old sailors. Continuing the mounting, I finished the keel planks; starting to glue one end of the board next to the hull, I was gluing the rest of the plank to stern.

Later, I was glue other plank, next the first, and I was glue the piece to bow.

p?i=9eee228ab42ab5164a60384be1778b90

In this images I was gluing the plank into the end of the keel; finaly I cut off the excess (in the last image).

p?i=de1c24f7893d14756242222e85c3b5aa

 

Later I glued the second plank, starting on the edge of the bow (image 1), and repeating the previous process (images 2, 3 and 4)

p?i=7c3f0fc97ee055c3e0f9aa03005e4fcb

 

In the bow, I was gluing dry banana leaves, with lighter shades of color (the otherside of the leaves) to the outside, and with different direction. After dry, I cut the excess to  get the correct shape.

p?i=8ba0f3620657d9c40fa73d9255c5fc80

 

In the stern I built the planks, like the sequence images, gluing one by one, and cutting the excess. In the last image, one of my tools, a blade attached in a body pen, very tecnologic, like the banana leaves 🙊!
