This database is very nice and provides great information to help those decide which ships they would like to work on. 

 

Nice job, and thank you for taking the time to create this for the community!

Adam - Do you still need the spreadsheet? I had assumed that Chuck had already shared it with you. I believe he made some updates to the version I have.

 

If you have it readily handy I would love to go through it.

Not sure if they are still in business but I do see their kits sold on EBay every now and then. Sometimes even on this site.

There is also The Lumberyard, though they are somewhere between kits and timbering sets.  There's a link to their site at the same area of the forum home page, a few banners up from your Database link--you can check out their kit offerings there.

Hi Adam

Great idea

 

Here's a thought, if members sumitted PDF's of build instructions, could they be hyperlinked to the appropriatte place in your spreadsheet?

I guess there may be a copyright issue but sure would be helpful

How about adding '1st-3rd Rate' as a ship type?

Do you wish to include scratch building projects with available wooden framing package ? You could include them in a separate category. Examples might include Admiralty Models Swan and Echo class ships as well as the Echo cross-section, Naiad, Triton​, etc.

Good Morning All,

 

So sorry for the delayed response!

 

Thank you for the incredible amount of support for the project,  it is really appreciated and WOW have I been getting some great ideas from so many of you!

 

I will be sorting out the ideas and putting together a "wish" list of sorts and updating here in this thread.

That would be a great thing to add, but yeah the copyright issues are just muddy enough that I will probobly stay away from that rabbit hole for now.

 

Do you wish to include scratch building projects with available wooden framing package ? You could include them in a separate category. Examples might include Admiralty Models Swan and Echo class ships as well as the Echo cross-section, Naiad, Triton​, etc.

 

I will definately be including scratch projects,  I just havn't figured out the best way to present them yet.

Nick

 

Well, here is where my nautical ignorance is going to show a bit.  I have heard those terms, but only now know what they mean because I had to go look them up :D .  Not a bad idea,  I am an information junky and love as much info as I can ... I am just not sure if it applies to all ships or only certain sihps and where I would put it.  However, it is on the wish list!

Hehe popeye, I gave up having free time years ago - I just do what I can with what I have and when I get it!   I actually started doing some billings over the weekend (I have the pictures downloaded and test ship on the site now).  Will be flushing that one out next!

 

 

Again all, keep the suggestions coming. I may not be able to do them all but will take anything under consideration!

Well, checking the stats people are hitting the DB - so thank you all for the support and glad it is useful to folks so far!  The holidays took me out of ciruculation,  nothing major just a lot of traveling here there and everywhere (my wife has a very large family so seems like most of December was spent going to someones house =) ).

 

I have started adding Billings boats to the list, those should be done shortly.

 

Also, have added colums for length and height in mm   so now both inches and mm are represented.   New ships going in will auto convert whichever way needs being done,  for those ships already in the system you will see blanks for the mm columns - I have yet whipped up a nice script to go back through and adjust everything; that is next on the plate =)

 

 

Thanks again all!

And happy building!!

Billings has been added,  as per usual there are a fair amount of blanks as I either did not readily have the information OR due to my novice nature was not sure of the information.

 

As always if you see a mistake or a correction feel free to let me know!

 

Will be moving on to Caldercraft and Corel next.

 

 

Thanks all - enjoy and Happy Modeling!

Latest update  (I fibbed,  was going to do Caldecraft and Corel next - but did Constructo instead :o )

 

Constructo entered - as per usual, there are some empty fields because either A) the site didn't have the information or B) I am ignorant enough about maritime matters I did not know the anser or C) Both :P

 

Still working on an easy way to the existing dimension conversions in there rather than by hand mainly because there are a lot!

 

Also fixed whatever happened to make the images go on vacation for a bit, but they are back.
