  2. Charles W. Morgan - Vintage Marine Model Company Updated

    Charles W. Morgan  is an American whaling ship built in 1841 that was active during the 19th and early 20th centuries. Ships of this type were used to harvest the blubber of whales for whale oil which was commonly used in lamps.  Charles W. Morgan  has served as a museum ship since the 1940s and is now an exhibit at the  Mystic Seaport  museum in  Mystic, Connecticut . She is the world's oldest surviving (non-wrecked) merchant vessel and the only surviving wooden whaling ship from the 19th century American merchant fleet, which at one time numbered 2,700 vessels.     The Morgan was designated a  National Historic Landmark  in 1966.
     
    This was my first wood ship model of the caliber. Rescued from eBay this vintage kit was very challenging. The blueprints were copyrighted 1939 representing the CW Morgan as she was enshrined at the estate of C olonel  Green in 1935.

  5. Roar Ege - Billing Boats Updated

    My old Roar Ege model from Billing Boats. Well.. It is nothing special, I really don't like the fact that it is made out of plywood.
    Don't think it was very common among the Vikings 😆  Anyway, I remember I had fun building it!

  7. USS Texas (BB-35) in 1/350 Scale Updated

    The basic kit is from Trumpeter.   I customized it using the following:
     
    Eduard photo-etch Black Cat Model's 20mm, 40mm and 3"/50 cal anti-aircraft guns Miscellaneous fittings from Black Cat Models Master Model's 14-inch gun barrels Master Model's whip antennas North Star Model's floater nets Radars from Infini Model's USN World War II radar set Kingfisher floatplanes from L'Arsenal  
    I painted the ship as she appeared during Operation Overlord with the Measure 22 schema.   
    Measure 22 used Navy blue low on the hull, below the first continuous deck, with Haze gray above that, see Figure 1.     Measure 22 used a straight horizontal boundary between the two colors rather than following the sheer of the main deck, making a characteristic gray "wedge" at the bow.     This bold contrast at a horizontal line near the horizon reduced visibility to surface observers and created the illusion of greater range.     Horizontal surfaces were painted Deck blue.      This measure largely replaced Measure 12 where aerial observation was unlikely. The Bureau of Ship Manual Ship Camouflage Manual (Ships-2, Revision 2) states Measure 22 is "useful for combatant ships operating in areas where greatest danger might be expected from gunnery action either from shore batteries or from enemy surface ships. Moderately high visibility to aerial observation at close ranges.”     This measure was used in the Atlantic and European coastal waters from the end of 1942 through the end of World War II and was often referred to as "Atlantic two-tone."     It was worn by shore bombardment ships in the Pacific from late 1944 after the destruction of Japanese naval aviation in the Battle of the Philippine Sea.

  8. Pride of Baltimore - Model Shipways Updated

    Completed and cased in 2020.
     
    Love the rake of the masts!
     
    Built following Robert E. Hunt’s “College of Model Shipbuilding” course, simultaneously with the Eagle .
     
    Goal of this project was to gain an understanding of how to rig a a two masted vessel and in particular manufacture the masts, yards, and bowsprit using the lathe, router table (bowsprit octagon section), and Byrnes table saw.  Also to get the vertical alignment of the hull, the masts, and pedestals correct.
     
    Hull primed with rattle can shellac and gesso.  Hull colors are Tamiya Deep Green and Flat Black applied with Talon airbrush.
     
    Bulwarks, deck, masts, yards, booms, gaff, finished with Minwax Ipswich Pine stain. Deck has a furniture paste wax finish.  
     
    Masts finished with Vallejo Model Air Mahogany, black areas are Tamiya flat black acrylic both applied with the Talon.  Stained pine readily accommodates the acrylic.  White areas of deck houses brushed out with Vallejo Model Color white.
     
    Rope hanks made using a clothespin technique shown in the Bluejacket Shipcrafters email newsletter.  Blocks stropped with fine wire, also available from Bluejacket.
     
    Tops of deck houses made from scraps of glued up decking (left over from Lackawanna), also available from Bluejacket.  Thought was to give it a try, to save time, however, will not do this going forward with future construction.
     
    Case is my own design.  3/32” acrylic all around, a significant weight and cost saving as compared to cabinet glass.  Maple plywood base, maple moulding and frame; finished with Old Masters Maple stain and paste furniture wax.

  10. Graf Zeppelin 1:720 by Revell Updated

    Behold! I have finished my first aircraft carrier model and oh boi I wanna make another one...
    This is a 1:720 Graf Zeppelin by Revell (german aircraft carrier).
     
    This time I dared to use weathering stuff on the model, also used uv resin glue for the wires which made it so much easier to put them in place... Can‘t forget the new decal liquids either which nicely blend in the decals.
     
    I know my local hobby shop had a large scale Enterprise and I really want that now...

  13. Emma C Berry Updated

    This was my first build over 40 years ago. Scientific R/C kit of balsa wood (needed to fiber glass the hull). Very large model with a length of ~ 48", height ~ 40" and beam of 12". I re-fabed the kit in Basswood, if i only knew then what I have learned know!

  14. Type XXIII U-Boat 1/35 Updated

    This is the Bronco Type XXIII U-Boat in a massive 1/35 scale. The boat I depicted, U-2336, sank the last two merchant ships by submarine in WWII. To depict her I had to add more scuppers to the conning tower and scratchbuilt the snorkel; otherwise it was a straightforward build.
     
    Cheers,  Tom

  20. BlueJacket MARY TAYLOR finished Updated

    Just finished up my first ship model of BlueJacket's Mary Taylor NY pilot schooner. Was a real learning experience but was able to get through it thanks to many articles here (and a little YouTube) and a phone call to Nic at BlueJacket to answer some basic questions. There are certainly any number of flaws but will endeavor to improve on the next one. Overall I'm very satisfied and proud to display it over my desk.

  21. Scharnhorst 1:570 by Revell Updated

    The newest model I finished, a 1:570 Scharnhorst by Revell. This has been one of the ships that was on my model wishlist. It‘s always nice adding another german warship to my collection.
    This is also the first model I bought a display case for, I tried my best to make this model as good as possible with my current skills and supplies to make it worthy for the display case. I can say I am proud of this one and love how it turned out.
     
    I used quite a few new materials for this one, plasto and milliput to fill cracks, mold line cleaner, black thread, plasti-zap, etc.
     
    I have quite a few more planned and I shall be starting the next one soon.

  22. RMS Titanic 1:400 by Revell Updated

    I‘m not gonna lie I completely forgot about this model...
    So this was the first ever model I made many many years ago, which means it isn‘t really any good... I only had the model kit without any extra supplies (no scalpel, file, etc.).

    I got this 100 year edition of the Titanic for Xmas from my grandma (I can‘t remember why).
    It was never fully finished and many pieces were lost. I would love to get the chance to remake this model and finish it. 
     
    I do plan on doing another Titanic model, either the same kit if I can find it again or a different one (hopefully the same scale). This time using the supplies I have now and hopefully not lose any pieces...

  24. HMS Fly 1776 by Victory Models Updated

    My first real build of a model ship, although I had built HM Cutter Hunter by Mamoli in around 1996, on HMS Fly I paid a lot more attention to the detail. I would like to thank all the other builders of Swan Class ships with logs on this site from whom I have learnt such an enormous amount but still have such a long way to go.

  25. Red Jacket clipper ship Updated

    Built in 1853 in Rockland ME, the Red Jacket made a record run for sailing cargo ships on her first voyage from NY to Liverpool.  The record still stands today at 13 days, 1 hour, 25 minutes. When built, her bottom was painted, but when she left England, they had coppered her bottom.

    • No worries Bob....always learning, the best part about all of this....
    • Beautiful model! I have the POB on the shelf for a future build down the road. Thanks for explaining your paint and stain scheme.
    • Hi Mike,
      Thank you for your further explanations!
      I have now a good understanding of the principle of how you made the case. I am looking forward to your additional photos! No hurry from my side, because there is still a lockdown in my country, so I cannot buy materials...
      I intend to make my case 102 cm by 35 cm wide and 75 cm height. I assume that this is close to your dimensions (and weight...).
      Andre
    • Yes, it took 2 people for the large panels. Most of your statements are correct, the top was done differently. They are only rectangular strips that fit into a shoulder I milled on the outside tops of the verticals deep enough so the strip (when attached) make the outside edge of the glass trough (of the verticals) allowing the panels to slide in and out. Then the cover is screwed to the verticals locking the whole thing together. The total weight of glass would have been ~ 160 lbs so I went with Plexiglass which was only about 75 lbs but more expensive. I under estimated both the weight of material as well as the cost for a case this size. I will try to post (or send to you directly) photos to help explain, however, it is at my sons house so it may be a few days. In the meantime let me know if you have any questions and thanks for your interest.
      Mike
