That deck is sweet. I don't think I've ever seen model deck planking of that quality and precision. Very, very nice.

Awhile back, a friend of yours said that your wife wasn't very happy with your big model. I know a lot of people who would kick their wife out if it meant they could own a model like yours.

Hugotanic hello,

Beautiful work you did there!

Attention Art forgot to tell you that he discovered on the floor a difference titanic olympic wood that was beveled as if this drawing below.

If not, nothing to say you're a very good model.
I expect new photo.

Regards.

Hello !!!! My name is Gonzalo and I´m a friend of Hugo. The photo below shows the step on deck. At the sailor´s foot. 35 years later, the photo is from german pocket battleship Admiral Graf Spee. The anchor chain rests on wood without metal cover.

Gonzalo,

Thank you for posting that photograph - it's very interesting. But it does not show the same thing. On the Graf Spee, the raised planking is the chain race. On Titanic, the chain races were raised off the deck. Beneath the chain races were teak deck planks, wider than the other ones. On the edges, where they met the regular deck planks, the outer plank on either side was beveled - it was not stepped like on the Graf Spee. See the photograph below from Olympic.

Hello !!!!!!
Hugo and me were talking by phone about this topic and I tell to you that Hugo says to me:
“ There is no evidence that supports the forum. The pattern deck of Oceanic doesn’t meant that Titanic was identical. Is another ship and shipyard. The pattern of forecastle deck it´s different. Oceanic has wider strakes parallel. On Titanic, the deck it´s different around the capstan. The strakes are square or rectangular.
The photos supports there was that step. You can see the photo where the anchor is hanging from a crane. There is no proof to the contrary”
Besides, I say that I don´t understand why wait too much to carve the wider strakes or until finish the entire deck on forecastle.
So, it´s reasonable to wait. If he change the step and it´s wrong, he must to rebuild the entire wood strakes on forecastle deck because the strakes are glued strong.
I saw on book Anatomy of the ship series “The Schooner Bertha L Downs” a picture of forecastle from a sister sail ship (the same class). There is no step. There is no sharp edge. However, the drawings show to me the contrary. But this sail ship was built in 1908, the same years that Titanic. But it´s a sail ship and american, not the same thing.
Of course, he is grateful with your comments (me too, because I learn about naval architecture).
Hugo show me and ask me about things of Titanic, and I can see that this ship has strange details. Many of them are not common in naval architecture. Because of this, I can´t help him. Each nation has your own way and they changes depending on the years or ship types.
However, it´s not the last word .
Regards.
Gonzalo.

Hola !!!
Yo y Hugo hemos estado hablándonos por teléfono y discutiendo acerca de este tema. Les digo lo que el me dice:
“En realidad no hay evidencia que apoye lo que se dice en el foro. El hecho de que el Oceanic tenga la cubierta de este modo, no significa que el Titanic sea igual. Es otro barco y otro astillero. Tampoco es igual el esquema de las tracas en el castillo de proa. En el Oceanic, las tracas gruesas son paralelas en general, en el Titanic forma un contorno distinto, especialmente en el cabrestante que tiene forma de rectángulo. La evidencia apoya que existe ese escalón. Lo muestra la misma foto incluida aquí, aquella donde el ancla cuelga de la grúa. Pruebas de lo contrario no existen.”
Además yo digo que no entiendo por qué se espera tanto para afilar la traca gruesa. Eso debería hacerse al mismo tiempo que se construye la cubierta y no esperar a que termine la construcción de toda la cubierta.
Lo prudente es esperar. Si el afila la traca y resulta incorrecto, tiene que arrancar todas las tracas del castillo para arreglarlo. Hay que hacer todo el trabajo de nuevo.
Yo he visto en el libro Anatomy of the Ship series “The Schooner Bertha L. Downs” una foto del castillo de proa de un velero similar que apoya la tesis de uds del foro. Una transición lisa de las tracas gruesas centrales a las tracas mas angostas. Sin embargo en los dibujos me muestran el escalón. Lo importante es que este velero es de 1908, contemporáneo al Titanic, pero es de construcción americana y es un velero.
Por supuesto, mi amigo Hugo les agradece vuestra ayuda (yo también, pues aprendo sobre arquitectura naval).
Aparte de este tema, Hugo me muestra y me consulta sobre particularidades de construcción en el Titanic, y por lo que yo sé, este era un barco con detalles extraños. Muchos detalles de construcción del Titanic son únicos de esta nave y no concuerdan con la arquitectura naval de la época y yo no lo puedo ayudar. Cada nación tiene su estilo y varía según el tipo de nave y año.
Sin embargo no está dicha la última palabra.
Saludos.

You are right, that photo of the capstan is from Oceanic. My apologies for mis-captioning it. But the center teak planking on the Forecastle Deck of the Olympic-class ships was the same. You referred to the photo of the crane hanging from the anchor. Is this the one?



It does not show the transition from the teak planks to the pine planks. See the Olympic photo below. You can see there is no step at the transition.

#4014, "Enhanced Photo Evidence"
In response to Reply # 39


          

This post is primarily directed at Hugo but I hope it provides evidence for anyone else who may be undecided about this issue.
Was there a "step" between the wider thicker planking in the forward central section of the forecastle planking or were the wider thicker planks "beveled" or "shaved" to provide a smooth transition with no step?
Photos have been posted which are from military ships of different countries and from near contemporaries of Titanic. While I personally believe that the Oceanic photo is instructive if not definitive, lets throw all these photos out of this discussion. Let's provide evidence from an Olympic class ship which is actually in service and not under construction like the Britannic photos of the center anchor being loaded. Art posted a photo of Olympic in the previous post that I believe is the one we should be looking at. Unfortunately at the resolution of the photo which was posted, the pertinent details are difficult to discern.
Below is an enhanced photo of the one Art posted. It is of Olympic during her 1912-13 refit. I have indicated the border planks between the 10 in. x 4 in. planks and the 5 in. x 3 in. planks. The crucial area to look at is where these planks meet the margin planks. The 5x3 in. planks are flush with the margin planks at their forward ends. Since the margin planks are of constant thickness, one would expect to see a "step" above the margin plank where the 10x4 in. planks meet it. We do not. The reason is because the 10x4 in. planks are beveled to meet it on their forward ends. If they were only beveled on their forward ends we would see the "step" beginning to develop as you follow the plank junction between the two plank sizes as you proceed aft. We do not see that step form. What we see is is a smooth and uniform transition between the two types of planks.

This particular way of handling this transition between plank sizes was more a function of the particular shipyard and its practices rather than vessel type. As an example on Lusitania we see that the John Brown shipyard employed the "step" method. This shipyard practice is why I believe the Oceanic photo should receive even more weight even though it is not crucial to this argument.

So, Hugo or anyone else, you are free to model this area how you wish.
Our purpose is not to criticize individual modeler's efforts. One of the purposes of this forum and of those who have studied this ship for years is to try to distinguish those features of this ship which are open to speculation and which are not. If there is some evidence which can be presented which will contradict the evidence I have presented, I welcome it. Until then, I believe the best evidence supports the position that the thicker forecastle planks were beveled where they met the thinner planks.

Regards,
Bob Read

In response to Reply # 40

Bob : The photo that you uploaded I think it´s very important. The red circle shows the wood carved. The strake was shaved until hawsehole base. We can´t see the rest.



I´m acting like a ambassador. Hugo don´t know to write and read english and upload a photo.
So, again another phone call, (hot line) and Hugo says to me:
“The photo that shows the anchor hanging from a crane is from a ship in service or when the deck is finished. Why ? Because there are ropes in use around the capstans and bollards, like a active ship. We can see a step behind the capstan”. So, he shaved the step from bow or anchor well until the first capstan. The rest remains unchanged.
Y uploaded the following 2 photos to show to you the area shaved by Hugo (in red):





I think that it´s a new point of view. A logical thought. It´s not necessary to shave the wood from first capstan to aft, until the hatch.
But I don´t know. I´m a submarine ship modeler from scratch or kit.. I´m the ambassador and Hugo is the builder. I´m learning english and things about Titanic. It´s very interesting.
Regards.

Gesalinas:

I'm not really sure what point is being made. The photo of Britannic where you can see a "step" behind the capstan is definitely during fitting out of Britannic. We know the history of that photo very well. They were bringing the center anchor aboard for the first time. We have other photos in this series so we know for certain that she was not in service yet.
Second, the area you have circled in my photo you believe is evidence of beveling or shaving near the hawse hole. If that were so, the next plank inboard of that plank would show similar forward shaving or beveling but it doesn't.
You don't need to be an ambassador. There is no conflict as far as I'm concerned. Hugo is convinced that there was a step. I am not. So I guess Hugo should model the deck the way he believes. I would say however that his is a minority position. I believe most, if not all of the authors of "Titanic, the Ship Magnificent" believe the planks were beveled. I just don't have any further evidence to offer.

Regards,
Bob Read

Bob,

I think when he used the term "ambassador", he meant it in the sense of a go-between and interpreter. Many things suffer in translation, and I suspect this is one of them.

Just my 2 cents.

Yes, you are right. I´m an interpreter. Also I help to him in things about naval architecture and to build this model.
The last word belongs to Hugo.
I´m a consul and I like it.
Very interesting topic and forum.

Hugo:

I usually don't comment on models unless the modeler solicits comments as you have. Let me first compliment you on your modeling skills. Everything is crisp and neat.
Here's where I see a problem: The difference in thickness between the wider planks and the narrower ones was only one inch on the full size ship. On a 1/35 scale ship that would only be .0286 inches. You appear to have beveled the outer edge of the wider planks aft of the capstan but it still presents a visual "step". I believe that only half the width of the thicker planks needed to be shaved or beveled and when it was you really couldn't tell where the narrower and wider planks met other than the width of the planks. The transition was very smooth. I have included an accurate scale drawing below to illustrate what I have described above. Keep up the good work!

Regards,
Bob Read

Bob,

the forward-most margin planks (from the capstans forward) do appear to be beveled correctly - would you agree?

Art:
From what I can see they look ok. At least it's the kind of smooth transition that we need to see aft of the capstan. The point I was making regarding the necessity of using scale thickness planks is that in the area aft of the capstan, it looks like beveling might have to extend to two planks rather than part of one to achieve the kind of smooth transition necessary. Even if it's done that way, it will be essentially unnoticeable if the transition is smooth.

Regards,
Bob Read

Hi,

I don't want to confirm that the wood boards are bevelled but only that the photo watch clearly the old traces of the boards by arrows red and after sandpapering by arrows yellow, it seems that two boards are sandpapered to give a regular bevel.


Best TRMA....

Kind Regards.

this model is insane. I can't wait to see the finished product. It looks like it will take quite a bit of time though.

After seeing this model, and Morten's 1/144, I really want to build a 1/144 of my own. Perhaps I will buy the kit after I graduate...

Hello, I'm Hugo. I'm back again. The day 11/11/11 gave me a double heart attack. After several months in recovery now I'm fine.
My heart will go on.
Here I show to you some parts of lifeboats davits. The pieces are all bronze.









The photo below is the silicon rubber mould for all the boats types:



The next photo show the mould for bollard, the bitts all made by hand with a lathe and the winches made from bronze and epoxy.

Glad you are back and building again... I had given up on following this build. I hope you give us plenty of updates, because this may be my favorite model on here

Hugo, I'm glad to hear you're well after your heart attack.

I'm always so impressed by the plastic models on this forum, but when a model like yours comes along it makes me speechless. I wouldn't know where to begin with metal work like this. The detail and precision is museum-quality. Those have got to be the best model propellers I've ever seen.

I totally agree with Jason.
A few years ago I have read your older posts, too.
It is nice to see that your work is kept up again.
I wish you all the best to finish this superb model in the next years.

Hugo,

I'm glad to see your health has improved and is allowing you to resume this incredible build. Those winches are beautiful. I can appreciate the amount of work each one requires......especially in brass.

Please post more when you can.

Matt

Hi Hugo,
I'm happy you are again with us...your model established new standards in scratch build works...
The use of brass is simply astonishing, without doubts beyond the capacities of the great part of modelers ( first of all me...).
I hope to see as soon as possible some updates from your "dockyard"....
Hat off in front of your work...
Best regard.
Filippo

Hello Hugo.. your work is something that I've never seen until now. Absolutely beautiful..I'll be looking forward to seeing your progress. Sorry to hear about your heart attacks but glad you're okay now. I agree totally with your comment that a true model maker makes everything by himself but I guess it's something that depends on how good the individual is with his hands. Best of luck with your build

It almost seems a shame to paint this model. It is perfectly detailed WITHOUT the paint.
