    HMS Wivern by Chausseur

    I got a chance to work on the mount that holds the hull in the light bulb and soldered up the Bow Sprit and Jib Boom complete with Martingale. I referenced Underhill's book for this. I had to build a special jig from a miniature close pin to hold the Martingale while soldering. I chose the eyelet end of a sewing needle for ease of rigging later! Tweezers show scale reference Note dot of glue to hold the needle while soldering into position. Used some thin wood shims to get the proper positioning. Here is the completed Bow Sprit/Jib Boom less paint, foot ropes, Head/back stays, and guys. Still some intricate work to do on it today!

    What else do you model besides SIBs?

    Hey Jeff, you remind me of my brother-in-law. He is on his third telescope as well. It’s quite the beast. He has a van that he hauls it around in and he has to put it together as it comes in sections. Once I tried to ask him how much he paid for it and he declined to say so I am assuming it’s a small fortune. We were out one night years ago and we could see the rings around Saturn. Very cool to see God’s creativity up close.

    HMS Wivern by Chausseur

    Got some time in the Man Cave to work on the base for the bulb and started on the masts and support for the hull. The masts are small wire and sewing needles soldered together. If you look closely there is a gold patina dry-brushed on the base and support structures for the bulb. I made a special little tool to measure the contour of the inside of the bulb as well. Enjoy!

    HMS Wivern by Chausseur

    Well, I had big intentions of finishing this build by October 4th for SIB day and that was an absolute pipe dream. Life has been exceedingly busy taking care of my aging Mom and... we had a major incident at work which shut down 600 plus employees for almost 2 weeks. Henceforth I have been stupidly busy. Anyway attached is a bit of work on Wivern. I got the hull painted with waterline installed. I have 2 weeks off at Christmas hopefully I can get a lot done on her then?

    HMS Gannet

    Deck furniture looking great. Too bad about the broken spar. I know the amount of work that goes into modeling... hurts when you break someth?ing.
