[WIP] HMS Baratang

11 posts in this topic

Hello dear folks!

When I stumbled upon Sebeus' experimental "Organic Ship building" technique I was quite intrigued. So I started thinking about it. Then I started buying bricks. And now I'm building a new vessel!

The HMS Baratang will be a bomb ketch of the late 18th century. I tried a few things and came out with this solution for the outer hull that makes me quite happy! So far it's a bit moving-happy but this can be easily fixed by adding more fixation coming from the weather deck.

Tell me what you think! And give Sebeus a big thank you for the idea :pir_laugh2:

I love that new technique! :pir-wub: Looking good Horry! Keep an eye on the height of the ship, as bomb ketches were pretty low ships.

Thank you all!

Thanks - this is one reason I decided to try a bomb ketch - I'm not too sure if I could keep my sanity if I tried to build a higher vessel with this technique :pir-classic:

This looks very interesting, I haven't done much with the technique lately but seeing this makes me want to get back to it.

I like the curve I see in the first picture, the curve at the bow seems a bit less fluent but that is a difficult part after all.

I'll be watching this thread :pir-sweet:

Thank you all! I still haven't found a way to do the bow to my liking - I might end up with the "traditional" method constructing it - input on this matter is highly appreciated.

Here are some updates!

Just don't shoot the foremast will ya? :pir-tongue:

*huh* Sir, this's supposed to be a ketch, Sir! (I'm lying, this was a fully rigged before. We used the foremast to fire up the galley again!)

I've put the updates in the first post! I finally managed to do a bow to my liking that's quite stable! The hull is as good as finished, now.
