Pilot cutter Jolie Brise in a bottle - Scale 1/240

65 posts in this topic

Hello to all!
Two weeks ago I started another small project in a bottle. This time it is a model of the pilot cutter Jolie Brise. This boat I like for a long time and now, finally, I "matured" for its construction. More or less suitable drawings of this boat, I never found. Found only the theoretical drawing of the hull and the general scheme of the sails. Also I found in the network a number of photos.
Well, and a suitable bottle was found.

A little of the history about Jolie Brise - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jolie_Brise

So, two weeks ago, on the first day of my short vacation, I started this building.
I started, as usual, with the manufacture of the base of the hull, which will be detachable at the waterline.
First, I cut out the wooden plates, of which the hull will consist.

Now it was possible to proceed to the sheathing of the boardes and the stern of the hull. I started with the stern, in which there are holes, apparently playing the role of scuppers. Because I was not sure that I would be able to cut through these "windows" in the hornbeam planking qualitatively, then I decided to make a compositing design.

The boards also have narrow scuppers at the deck level. Therefore, I cut them in the parts of the planking of the boards, protruding above the deck before gluing the bulwarks.

Next, I glued the posts to the inside surface of the bulwarks. Because The bulwarks themselves gradually reduce their thickness in the process of sanding them from the outside, then their additional strengthening will be very useful. In addition, they will be very useful and to increase the area of gluing when installing gunwales.

Next, I cut through the deck in the places of the entrance tambours and lined the walls of the holes with planks. I do not know for sure whether there will be open doors in the entrance tambours, but, just in case, decided to refine these holes in the deck
