Copenhagen Ship Curves

Almost every paper modeler’s toolbox includes a steel ruler and a model knife. With these tools, it is easy to make straight cuts in paper and cardboard. What if you want to cut a part with a curved edge? You will use scissors. And if these are the skin planks of an old ship? The…

French longboat of the 18th century 03

As I already said, I managed to find a few more pictures with illustrations of the boat and its equipment. I also managed to find pictures showing the equipment of the longboat of that time: a bucket, a lantern, a compass binnacle, oarlocks and an anchor-cat. That’s all the information that I had at the time of the start of the modeling. I must say that this was not my first model, which I developed myself from the very beginning. I already had experience in model development. I will talk about this another time. My toolbox included FreeShip!, Acad 2000, InDesign and Photoshop.…

French longboat of the 18th century 02

A small digression. Historical background. The second half of the 18th century is rightfully considered the heyday of sailing shipbuilding in the sense that by this time ships had already acquired high seaworthiness, but had not yet become a victim of harsh naval pragmatism.  Their silhouettes fully reflect the harmony of graceful ship lines, and the overly luxurious decoration…

Application of wax on paper

During the construction of the French 18th-century longboat, after the assembly of the hull was completed, the question arose about its protection from dust and dirt.  I rejected varnishing because it was too complicated. It is unclear what varnish is suitable for this. Woodworkers cover their models with oils. The case looks very beautiful, but…
