    Could you maybe tell us a bit more about how you made this? How did you form the boat hull so precisely? What material are you using?

    Magic Sculpt material. We find a drawing. We translate to the desired scale. I make frames. I am making a keel. I fix the frames on the keel. I fill the voids between the frames with plasticine. I get a matrix. I roll out Magic Sculpt with a thin layer of 1.5 mm. I put it on the matrix. I cut off the excess. I get 3 parts: keel, left and right half of the hull. I level with a file. I mark the boards. According to the markup, I fasten thin strips outside and inside. I level and finish to the required thickness. In short, everything.

    Thank you for taking the time to explain. I have made similar boat/ship models in card and paper before but hadn't thought of using epoxy clay. I shall follow this with interest.

    Sergey you are amazing!!!What a fantastic project.Judging by the prow,the stern and the clinker built design are we to expect somethig Norse?Who knows.One thing is for sure,you never stop to amaze us.

    Aris, thanks! You're absolutely right! The idea was proposed by Alexander Bespalko. 9th century Eastern Slavs. This picture is at the heart of the idea. I reduced the size of the ship. And creatively redo the details. Should be interesting.

    An interesting scale: 1/43 (7mm:1') is the standard scale used in the UK for O Gauge model railways. This model has been beautifully made, open boats require so much more care than decked boats because there is no way of hiding any construction 'sins': the interior planking is just as vsible as the external planking. I have made a few open boats and use a similar technique of a basic framework but I use basswood planking.

    My versions of Joseph Banks' skiff, as carried on HMS Endeavour are as follows:

    Finished as skiff and yole.jpg Finished as yole.jpg Finished as skiff.jpg

    I shall watch this build with interest.

    Happy modelling,

    Mike

    Thanks Mike! Great model boats! I started to do not from wood because then we want to make castings.

    If Alex is behind it then we can expect to see this as a commercial release by the great Triloka????? I am so happy.two of the best people in this hobby working together.This can only produce beauty.

    Oda.

    PS: for years I have been courting with the idea of a dio in 1/35 of a knarr complete with its crew.Of course in 1/35 it is a huge affair and difficult to materialize.In 1/43 it sounds ideal.Let's hope Alex will decide to make this a reality.
