    Jonas, would side-nipping sprue cutters like used in traditional modeling work?

    Another fine ship ready for battle Julián.

    Would you like the attatchments removing?

    Db, I use tongs and a scalpel. The biggest problem is that the resin prints are toxic and a little bit soft and rubbery before curing and I try not to touch them at all. Not only to not spread the toxic resin around (always use protective gloves) but it's easy to damage the very thin guns, lanterns and so on sticking out.

    Whilst waiting for my Swedish Frigates to come out of quarintine I am adding a few ships to my HEIC squadron.

    Here is the first finished today. The 1801 Frigate Cornwallis.

    They are looking very smart already Jonas. You must have a very steady hand to do that white line.

    Superb yet again Jonas.
    And I have to try and follow that.
    However, I must first discuss with you the suitable colour schemes and ensigns for my Frigates which come out of quarintine tomorrow.

    This is for Diamondback.
    DB I promised I would let you know how the reduction to 1/1000 scale worked out on my printer after I swapped to a smaller nozzle. It was raining so I stayed indoors and changed out the nozzles today. Printing the 1/700 Elizabeth at 70%, using a 0.2MM nozzle at the Cura Ultra Quality settings

    Thanks, Vol, I think that looks more like "wait for remaster" to me.

    Today's humble submission of Progress Report for the Admiralty's review...


    Top row L/R Canada/Captain, bottom L/R Orion/Majestic. Yes, I need to repair some lanterns; the references I've seen on Canada Class with those only show two so I'm thinking clip the centers, use one to repair Orion and set the others aside for spares/future repairs.

    Thanks, Jonas; I've been finding it works best for me to paint the "ports" section color first, then the top and bottom sections, and finally do the middle strake bringing my paintbrush in between the guns alternating top and bottom entries rather than my previous "linear" thinking. Any suggestions on things I need to work on for technique, or where to focus my efforts on these four next other than the bulwarks? I'm painting to mimic Ares style as closely as I can, so there's a Tamiya paint I need before I can do the guns and carriages.

    ID keys for convenience: Canada is blue stripes, Captain is blue beakhead and black gallery top, Orion is black stripes, Majestic full yellow beakhead top and gallery. If I can find references to allow something similar, I'd like to have a similar "unique ID marking" system for the Ganges class, and eventually back-paint onto Ares ships as well.

    Should I just figure on British Babypuke Yellow with Black for post-capture HMS San Josef, or go white or buff for the stripes? The only reference I've found under RN ensign is white as a gunnery training sip, but that's a good 20+ years after "end of game" and my preference would be more around the time Nelson broke flag aboard her while she was pinch-hitting for the burned Queen Charlotte.

    What ever you decide DB, I'm sure that your colour code will catch on as an easy recognition method amongst these identical hulled ships.

    This is very encouraging work Vol. It shows just how versatile Henry's models are going to be in the hands of you printing boys.

    In the meantime, while my usual practice is to start a class with oldest ships first, I'm starting the Ganges class with Minden based on this painting.

    Would we call this a single high white stripe on otherwise black hull for Tremendous?

    Can't tell which of these ships at Spithead 1797 is supposed to be Ganges herself, still no luck with Culloden and Invincible.

    The painting I posted earlier of her had her with yellow over the two lower gun decks and black above. The painting was of the Nelson bridge.

    I have painted her as I have seen her illustrated in Spanish service in pictures with four yellow stripes.

    I added a bit about the base painting of the hulls in my recent how to.

    https://sailsofglory.org/content.php...-printed-hulls

    By the way Vol, that is amazing results from a FDM printer. They've really come a long way. Now, I am the proud owner of a resin printer, so I can get better detail, but with the added durability and most of all, larger print area I suddenly wish I had a lot more money.

    Thanks Jonas, it has been fun playing around with it, trying new things, tweaking settings, experimenting with the slicer program settings, etc. to get the results I want.

    And thank you Rob for the rep points.

    All the incredible work that has been showcased on this month's and previous month's workbenches has inspired me to attempt painting and assembling a few GHQ metal ships I bought a few months back. They are two 18-gun brigs, an 8-gun schooner, a 22-gun xebec, a 44-gun East Indiaman and West Indies Merchant without guns. All are 1:1200 scale so I'm not sure how they'll look next to the SGN models although some of the Langton's seem to fit in well.

    The first picture is with the initial primer on all parts and the second one is with some of the detail painting started. My work does not compare with any of the amazing work many of you do. But hey, I figure if I don't like my finished results, I have plenty of materiel for sunk ship and derelict markers.

    It turned out that Henry Turner have some free ships and one of them was the Bounty. I just thought that Bligh ought to have that one.

    I have tried building GHQ ships a few decades ago and I failed miserably. SoG gave me a new chance to return to my favourite genre. I have painted a Rod Langton miniature or two since I started with SoG, but that's been an exception. I keep to plastic and resin now.

    Good luck!

    I also prefer the resin ships Jonas. I wish that Rod would indicate which of his are in resin.

    True, which gives us her last day in Spanish service and her last years in the RN. I'm hoping to find something in-between so HMS San Josef model will be visibly different from ARS San Jose or ARS Purisima Concepcion even before the ensigns go on. :)

    Nasty part on Ganges, looks like some of the stern painting has to wait until completion and derafting.

    She should be around 5-6 ft shorter and ~2ft narrower than the Swan sloops.

    The Business of the commander-in-chief is first to bring an enemy fleet to battle on the most advantageous terms to himself, (I mean that of laying his ships close on board the enemy, as expeditiously as possible); and secondly to continue them there until the business is decided.

    Nice looking fleet there Jonas, I just seen that on the 3d website there are now models available for the Santa Anna class, Bucentaure/Tonnant class, San Ildelfonso /Montanes class, so all of the smaller models can be replaced with more accurate ones.
    I look forward to seeing this fleet finished.

    Must have a look at Henry's site again myself Chris. Those are looking very smart already. Jonas can certainly move when he wants to.

    Yes Chris even I have been toying with the idea, but sanity has told me that I need a new bandsaw first.
