HMS Mercury(Shipway) ~ Magpie1832

Hi All,

Well, I looked at Doris's builds of card models and just had to have a go. I ordered HMS Enterprize a while back but waited, Then this kit just came out with the ribs all laser cut. So I orederd for £45 with delivery from Poland.Model-Shipyard

Here is my attempt to build it. Firstly the Card is very good and the instructions are ok. Mainly pictures but pretty self explanatory . The rigging instructions are better than A/L's. The fitment of the ribs was very good with no play too.

I used spray glue to laminate the sides of the keel which are in 4 parts. Then I will use craft PVA for the ribs when I fit them later.

Chris....

HMS Mercury and HMS Cleopatra seem to be similar vessels. I do not see any major differences.

Hi Guys..

Finished the first layer of card on the lower hull and fitted the deck card. The printed planks look good but the ink can come off quick so I am coating with Admiral Flat varnish to seal it.

Hi Guys..

Here is the latest.. I cut the cabins out and laminated the card.. I didn't like the red used for print and the drawn panels so I made my own panels on the walls. Looks a little neater.. Then painted red ochre..

Chris..

Hi Cris,

a typical britsh ship of the early 19th century and very important a complete rigging plan. So good luck while building the ship. What's its scale 1:96 like so many britsh models?



With the best regards

Ulrich

Thanks guys for your comments,
@Duan There are many different Shipyard models now with a new one just been released, It has 2 ships in one kit.Santa Maria and Nina. They are similar build wise to this one. http://www.model-shipyard.com/html/36uk.html.

@Ulrich The ships scale is 1/96 as you thought. It is small to me as I am currently building a 1/48 HMS Surprise from wood. 1334mm length and 950mm in height.

Chris..
