Naval Cutter "Alert" 1777

Naval Cutter "Alert" 1777

Postby axeonalias » Mon Dec 27, 2010 10:06 pm

So Here is the next one,this is my second attemp at making her,the first I had managed to model each plank in her Clinker hull only to find out i had modeled to few planks :righton:

The Plans I am using are from the Anatomy of the ship series with no less than 129 pages of drawings and information for her,so no excuses there then, Ive modelled a simple Slipway for her with the Layout taken from a Sailing Ships Encyclopedia I had bought some time ago.

Wile she is similar in build to Seaflower,She will have a full Interior and much more detail to show off,Im having Fun already :)








In the last render I had found the soil texture I had been looking for so renders from now on will have it in use.

This is a great project. I'd like to see some people in the scene though for scale. :)

Thanks Guys :)
Starting The main Deck,Had some issues with Drawings and Scales,Some have the ship lined to the waterline and some have her on the keel,which changes the angle slightly,and the scales keep changing per drawing...slightly annoying but neccesary for printing I guess.

Main Deck Complete,Carlings,Ledges,Deck Knees and Beams all added,Still need to add the Hanging Knees (Vertical Beam Supports) Sail room (in the Centre of the below deck) needs to be properly fitted.

Hehe Thanks guys,Everything is modelled in Sketchup,and im using Max to render,the first few shots were with KT.
Deck Fittings Added,Ladders and the Hanging Knees were added,There was little information on them but because of the way that each beam meets the inner hull at a different angle,each hanging knee is very different thus has to be custom made,Found the Wagon :)

Many more Bits and Pieces added,smaller details take some time,all done as low poly as possible (Well to my standards :P ) She is nearing the 20,000 poly count at the moment,Taking away the faces facing up from the framework below the decks freed up 4000 Polys,My Budget is 100k,Im sure I will get her in under 50K

Indeed, an incredible model!
I have a question totally unrelated to the model. As I was looking over teh beautiful project, I wondered how you are going to get it to the water?
Is there a method that a ship like that would be launched, the beach is pretty flat.
Just wondering.

Stephen The whole yard is suppose to be at an angle and she is Tied down from when her keel is laid,when the ship is complete she will slide to the water which is suppose to be behind her :),like such :

Well thats it for this Year Folks,Have a good one!
Iron Firehearth and Stove added,Jeer and topsail bitts added along with the Modified Windlass (Modified in 1777,not by me :) )
All you can see of the stove in the last 2 shots is the Flue and the coaming on the deck.

Thanks guys,She is coming together nicely but there is still so much to do,and I cant wait to paint her to her original colours!

6 and 4 pounders added,Coming in at 1200 each there will be 16 of them in total,comes to 19200 polys for the cannons,which I think is abit on the steap side so ill be messing around with them to bring it down abit,each poly saved is multiplied by 16 so ill be optimising to the max.
