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

Recommended Posts

Many thanks, Jeff!
Yesterday I tried another technology for making blocks. This block has a pulley and its length is 2.5 mm. Perhaps for someone this information will be useful.
Now I want to try to make a smaller block using this technology. Also I need to make double and triple blocks.

I have never seen such a small working block! How in  the world do you do such micro work? Wow!

Jesse

Thank you, Jesse!
I hope I can use this technology to make blocks for some of my future projects in scale 1/72.

As a point of interest, the Jolie Brise will be in Halifax on July  29th to Aug 1st of this year.  I hope to get onboard and have my book by Thad Koza signed .

Many thanks, friends for yours feedback!
Did you manage to see this boat in Halifax, bluenoser?
For almost a month I did not post updates, though, the work was quietly conducted. Now I will make up for lost time

So, the next stage of the construction was the making the railings. I have, if possible, delayed this stage, because I prefer to install them whenever possible, so as not to interfere with the work.

Racks of railings I cut from medical needles. In the gunwale I drilled holes for them. I screwed a very thin wire rings with legs to paste them into the upper ends of the posts and then stretch the railings through the rings.

Then I decided to make the fife rail, on which the running ends of the gaff will be fixed. In the original, this is a kind of metal band with nests for nagels, but I decided to make this part easier, because All the same it will not be visible under to the skeins of the ropes.

Then I made a couple of belaying pin planks for the stern of the boat and installed them in their places. Then I tried to stretch a loop from the thread between the plank and the board. In the future, I plan to use such loops to guide rigging in hard-to-reach places inside the bottle.
