  2. French trawler Hemerica Updated

     
    The model is built on the plans of the Fishery museum in Concarneau  France and represents one of the last French side trailers before these were replaced by the first generation of hecktrawlers.
    Built in scale 1:25 and representing her during her service life around 1970 for the shipping company Nicot in Concarneau. For the details of my build I have had much support from the staff of the French fishery museum.
    From the start I adapted the hull construction in order to prepare her for RC sailing. 
    During the build I decided to weather her as realistic as possible and later I also decided to build a slipway to show her during “maintenance” .
     
    The original trawler is now included in the collection of the Concarneau Fishery Museum and may also be visited.
    However, due to public safety issues, much of the original fishing gear was removed, but nevertheless she is still worth while visiting.

  5. Tsernikiperama Updated

    The peramas were Greek ships from the 19th and 20th centuries, typical of the Eastern Aegean Sea and the Sea of Marmara, which were used to transport all kinds of goods. They were characterized by their carrying capacity and good behavior in all types of seas. A very special feature of the peramas is the presence of floating handrails, which end before reaching the bow and the stern, as well as the existence of a small parapet transverse placed vertically on the deck. Normally they were rigged with two masts with gaff or lug sails and jibs, although there were also single masts, sometimes with Latin sails, which were frequently used for piracy and war operations. The main sites where its shipyards were located were Syros, Plomari and Samos, and although they are no longer under construction, many specimens have been recovered and adapted into pleasure boats.
    My model is based on the one made by the Greek model maker Thanassis de Giannikos of a tsernikiperama , a traditional perama with a single mast and a gaff sail, which he built following the line drawing of the Moon ship, as described in the book Construction Traditional Greek Warship by K. Damianidis (p. 58), while for the rigging of the model it was based on the book On the Equipment of Ships by Kotsovilis (p. 66).

  6. Slipway for trawler Hemerica Updated

    Whilst building and weathering the trawler Hemerica, the idea came up to make a slipway to show the model during maintenance.
    Inspiration was found in the Existing Newlyn (UK) harbour slipway. But as it is on scale 1:25 , and moreover I needed to consider dimensional  limitations. So I focussed on the construction of the railways, the slipwaycarriage, and all supports and freely designed the architectural details with an eye on the original, including the position of the winch.
    Many small details, as well as the workers, are added in stages as new ideas and suggestions just keep coming up.

  7. Harvaqtuurmiut Qayaq (Kayak), Baker Lake vicinity, West Hudson Bay, Canada Updated

    Wood and tissue model with caribou lance and paddle (18" long).  A full-size example would be 22'-28' long and 18"-21" wide.  (Sources: "A Contextual Study of the Caribou Eskimo Kayak" [Arima, 1975], and "Inuit Kayaks In Canada" [Arima, 1987]).

  8. Tonegawa Takasebune - Edo/Meiji period Japanese river cargo boat, 1/72 scale Updated

    The Takasebune is a large cargo river boat, of which there were various types across Japan. The Tonegawa Takasebune were just one of many types of boats that plied the intricate network of the Tone river, but it was among the largest, measuring up to around 27 meters in length and was said to have a carrying capacity of up to 900 bushels of rice, or about 54 tons. My model is a 1/72-scale build of a 60-foot, with a carrying capacity of about 500 bushels of rice, or about 30 tons.
     
    I’ve been interested in these boats for some time, and have been gathering what information I could find about them through web searches and a few books. Finally, I started working on this one. It's a bit on the small side, being only about 10" long overall and 7" tall, but it's scale compatible with my Higaki Kaisen and Kitamaebune models.
     
    After spending a long time making all the cargo, I finally decided it was loaded up enough to call it complete.

  9. Sacoleva Updated

    During the 19th century and the first half of the 20th it was easy to find, both in the eastern Mediterranean, on the coasts of Anatolia, Syria and Egypt, as well as in the Black Sea and the Adriatic this type of vessel with its unmistakable sails, whose main component was a large spritsail
    The model is made from the plans that, based on those of Admiral Paris, are found in the book "Vele italiane della costa occidentale dal medioevo al novecento", as well as from the observation of photos of other models of this type of vessel present in internet.
    The goods carried by these ships were mainly grains and skins from the Black Sea, cotton from Egypt and salt, almonds, olives, wine and oil from the Greek islands. In the sacolevas, the maneuvering of the spritsail was very easy, since it was provided with some rings on the luff that slid over on a rope and allowed the sail to be released and collected as if it were a curtain.
    The name of this boat as a sacoleva given by Admiral Paris seems to obey more to its rigging (since sacoleva is the modern Greek name for the spritsail) than to the peculiar shape of its hull, which is actually that of a tserniki , a type of boat that appeared rigged in different ways. Possibly it would be more appropriate to call it "tserniki-sacoleva".

  11. James Caird 1/24 scale, scratch-built Updated

    I intended this model to represent the James Caird as it might have looked on Elephant Island just prior to its departure on the voyage to South Georgia.  I based the model on photographs taken by Frank Hurley during the expedition and used plans developed and shared with me by a member of this forum.  I have left part of the canvas deck covering folded back so that the supplies and provisions stored inside the boat can be seen.

  13. Pareggia Updated

    The “pareggia”, a typical Ligurian boat, was very similar to the “bovo”. In reality, the only relevant difference between them is in the position of the main mast: inclined towards the bow in the first case and practically vertical, in the second. The “pareggias” had a practically straight stem with little inclination, a round stern and a hull with quite full shapes as befits a cargo ship. Normally they did not exceed 20 m. in length with a displacement of 30-40 t.
    In the book “Les caboteurs et pêcheurs de la còte de Tunisie. Pêche des éponges”, by the frigate captain P.-A. Hennique, which describes and illustrates the vessels of different nationalities (Arab, Greek, Maltese, Sicilian ...) that this French Navy officer found in those waters in 1888, a “pareggia” appears, the Monteallegro di la Spezia, a boat of about 15 m. in length, 4 m. of beam and 1.25 m. draft. Hennique noted the resemblance of their rigging to that of the Spanish feluccas which he had frequently encountered on his voyages. In navigation, the dinghy was brought on board and placed on the deck. The crew consisted of six men, counting on the skipper.
    The “pareggias” were used to transport people and goods along the Ligurian coast, although they also undertook navigations to much more distant destinations. They had a reputation for being excellent sailboats, very adaptable and that they had very well at sea in any weather.
    Regarding rigging, the difference between that of the mainmast and that of the mizzen is noteworthy. In the latter, the halyard is placed upright, in the position in which it should be placed to pass it from one side to the other, so the halyard goes forward of the mizzenmast. On the other hand, on the mainmast, the halyard of the entena descends from the wedge and is located aft of the mast.

  15. Amistad Schooner, 1839 Updated

    Scratch built 1:96 scale model of the infamous Amistad slave ship.  A basswood solid hull was carved and planked with basswood strips.  Basswood deck; bamboo masts and spars; and thin copper sheet were used.  The brick works are paper card.  I built this in the late 1990s, but do not think I have ever displayed it before.

  17. Zephyr Steam Boat - Puget Sound, Late 1800's Updated

    This is a 1:96 scale model of the steamboat "Zephyr" which worked around Seattle, Washington.  Plans were drawn off photos of the actual boat, scaled from a man seen on the deck and assumed to be about 5'10" tall.  I built this model in the late 1990s but never posted it before.  The model is basswood planking on a solid, carved hull.

  19. Vietnam Junk Ship Updated

    Hello everyone! cordially come from Vietnam ^^
    This is the boat I just completed. 1: 200 scale, built out of cardboard. In Vietnam, I call it "bat wing boat" because the sail is like a bat's wing, haha. Just kidding! This is a unique boat type of East Asia (China, Japan, Korea) and Vietnam. However, each country will have a different sail style. See more at my youtube channel :  https://bit.ly/3cPSoLR

  21. Misainier - French Fishing Boat, 1906 Updated

    This  is  a 1/48 scale model of a six meter (20 foot) Misainier fishing boat from 1906 named "Mirabeau."  The Misainier was an important feature of the French Atlantic Coast in the early part of the   20th century.   These little boats were usually 4 to   8 meters long,  single masted, lug rigged, and built by   individual s without formal plans.  Hundreds plied the coastal fishing grounds of Brittany until the mid 1900s.  A build log can be viewed at:  https://modelshipworld.com/topic/27766-misainier-by-gbmodeler-small-french-fishing-boat-of-the-early-1900s/

  22. Dalmatian bracera Updated

    The bracera is a traditional coastal cargo sailboat from the Adriatic, originally from Dalmatia, whose origin dates back at least to the 16th century, when it first appeared in the chronicles. Together with its larger sister vessels, the Trabaccolo and the Pièlego, the braceras formed the backbone of the commercial fleet in the Adriatic Sea, with the single-mast being the most abundant and well-known, although there were also specimens of two and even three masts. The bracera was a solid and agile vessel, with a good load capacity, making it particularly suitable for trade and communication between the many islands of the Adriatic and the neighboring coasts. These boats were dedicated to the transport of wood for construction and firewood, mainly from Senj to the south and the islands, and also for the transport of salt, sand, wine, olive oil and everything that was produced on the islands, from Istria to Dubrovnik. In Istria they were also used for fishing and in Dalmatia for collecting sea sponges.

  23. New England Stonington Dragger - 11" LOA Updated

    Stonington Draggers were among the first of the Western-Rig fishing vessels in New England.  These boats originated along the Connecticut coast and were named after the town where they became the dominant type.  The use of these boats spread to most Southern New England fishing ports in the early through mid 20th century.  This model depicts a vessel typical of the 1920's.
     
    A comprehensive build log can be found here .   Thanks for taking a look.

    • Thanks, Bill.  I will check out that video.
    • Yeaup they were stored there to be used out of the sweep ports. 
       
      Thanks again for the generous comments!! 😁 
    • Well I like the coils, and it is similar to the video of a guy using two metal disks with holes in the middle around a pin in a vice grip with a spring shoving the disks together, and I can get some hard clear plastic as you suggested.  Good advice, and again those are great pics you have here of an awesome build.  I would love to have that in my home.  It is beautiful.  The long oars under the launch, are those oars stowed there, and then used out of the sweep ports?  
    • Thanks!! I coiled the rope sandwiched between two plastic sheets after it was soaked in dilute white glue. You can check out the details here:
