Saettia - WAK 7-8/2015, 1:100

I've decided that it is time to end period of inactivity after finishing Allege and start new project. I've decided to try my skills at building card kit of Saettia, small transport vessel from Genoa, used from end of XIII until XVIII century in western parts of Mediterranean Sea. Kit was designed in 1:100 scale by Tomasz Weremko aka Seahorse and published by WAK issue 7-8/2015.

This time I've decided to use laser cut frames. Since these parts are made of beermat cardstock, which is nice to cut with scalpel but awful when sanded with sandpaper (it is very soft), all parts were soaked through in nitro based varnish. After drying parts got a bit more stiffnes and stopped falling apart when sanded. Currently whole frame is glued and ready for covering with deck and sanding before first layer of skin.

Small update, quarterdeck and first layer of main deck closed framing from the top. I've deviated a bit with build sequence from parts numbering and created first windows. I've also started to cover hull with first (of three) layer of skin.

Time for another update.

At first I've glued almost all parts of first layer of skin, leaving only last piece covering stern. After that it was time to roughly shape up stern cabin. Doors happened to be a little to large and needed slight trimming.

A quick update straight from the workshop. Window joinery is now finished I am preparing to close stern cabin with sides and deck.
Window glass was made of thin, transparent foil used to package laser cut parts and after gluing and some masking sprayed with glossy acrylic lacquer.

I've made small error while fitting middle horizontal parts on the sides but this little sin will be hidden in no time .

Not that much progress since last updated. I've closed stern quarters. After that kit called for main deck planking. Only difficulty was to keep planks straight.


Next in line is second layer of skin.
