Hallo John,

da hast du ein interessantes Modell gewählt. Die Schiffe aus dieser Epoche haben ihren ganz besonderen Flair und interessieren mich sehr. Ich werde deinen Baubericht mit Interesse verfolgen.

Gutes Gelingen, Gruß Wolfgang.

Hello John,

do you design the Hertog Hendrik yourself?

Kind regards

John, this is fascinating. I was unaware of any Dutch armored cruisers. Looks like you are off to a great start.

Hello John,

a great project ! The crane (?) at the aft mast will be a real challenge.

RE: Hollandischer Pantzerkreuzer Hr.Ms. Hertog Hendrik

I stopped building the "Hertog Hendrik".
I was not happy about the hulls I built in the past, these ships were all kits. But the hulls always turned out a little bulkled, and not nicely streamlined. De Hertog Hendrik I tried to build from scratch, but could not find the right method to build the hull plating. Tried to do it like in the wood building scene, but than with cardboard strips, but this did not work.
My wife said why not build a waterline model, than you don't have to bother with the underwater ship. But for me a ship model is a ship model as a full model, so with underwater ship.
I manage to build the frames and framework of the ship, I also manage to build the rest, deck work details and so on, the only gap in my building proces is the building of the underwater ship.
If I not succeed to build a good underwater ship, I think I have to look for another hobby.

John.

Hi all,

Finaly I managed to build the hull of my "Hertog Hendrik", I used transparency paper to make the hull plating, wich seems to be very succesfull.
Included some pictures:

Regards

John.

Some more pictures. By the way the model is in scale 1:125, and I like to build the model as she appeared in 1903/1910 with white hull and yellow funnel.

What a beautiful realistic effect the strips of paper have on the hull representing steelplate reinforcements! The transparant paper as template is indeed a good sulution, I used it on the scratch-built KLM DC-6B, described I think on this forum some time ago.
I'll be following your thread with great interest.
Groet.

Hello John,

my congratulations, the hull turned out superb. The plating looks like the real McCoy. I have never seen such excellent craftsmanship!

By the way: The Nagato looks great too !

Well, I believe you can keep your hobby as the underwater ship looks great! Did you use the same method for the hull above the waterline or is this "normal" cardboard? I am also wondering if the transparency paper is not *very* sensitive to tearing, or does the paint reinforce the it that much?

Groeten,
Thomas

Thomas,

The transparency paper was only used as a template for the real paper plating (normal cardboard). I did the same with the above waterline ship, although this was made out two pieces, glued together in about the center of the ship.
The riveted plating was glued to the sides before glueing the sides to the ship.

John.
