  2. IJN Mogami by Chuck B Updated

    This is my rendition of Trumpeter's 1/350 kit, which depicts the Japanese heavy cruiser Mogami after the refits that turned her from her original form into an aircraft-carrying cruiser. To build this model I added 823 scratch-built and aftermarket pieces to 502 parts from the kit. It took 1,011 hours to complete.

  5. Billing Boats Half Moon 1:40 by Usedtosail Updated

    This is the tenth wooden model ship I have built over about 13 years. This is the first 17th century ship I have built, the first with full square sails, the first where I had all of the rope on the model, and the first with crowsfeet and bowlines.

  11. HMS Speedy Updated

    This was my first kit from Vanguard Models - 18 months of great enjoyment. Many kits require extensive 'bashing' to make up for historical inaccuracy, poor quality material and out of scale components. This is not the case with this model. Chris Watton has designed well-researched kit that build up into an excellent model straight from the box. For example, the pearwood blocks supplied with the kit compare favourably with most after-market offerings. My additions, such as the boxwood deck, were simply intended to enhance  an already excellent model. I'm now building the Duchess of Kingston from Vanguard and have HMS Sphinx on order.

  12. USS Hornet 1:1200 by Revell Updated

    Oh look I actually finished another model… USS Hornet in scale 1:1200
     
    This was my first time using my airbrush for priming, couldn‘t use it further since I didn‘t have the colors in water based paint.
     
    Anyways my second carrier, USS Enterprise shall be next. She will be a 1:720 scale.

  16. Revell 1/144 scale Type VII C/411 U-Boat by RogerF Updated

    Revell 1/144 scale Type VII C/411 U-Boat
     
    This was my very first venture into model building for many, many years and the first time I ever used an airbrush or worked with photo-etch parts and also shows my first (partially successful) attempts at weathering. I learned so much in this, what was intended as an attempt to come to grips with airbrush, tiny PE parts and weathering, before embarking on a Flyhawk Bismarck or HMS Hood - the former I already have and the latter is on order. Working in 1/700 scale will be a real challenge particularly considering the sheer number of microscopic parts involved. With the U-Boot, I soon realised that far too many parts were really excess to requirements while some others were above my skills level, at least at the start. Hence there are omissions on the guns and steps for example caused by ridiculously microscopic and intricate parts that either added little to the overall effect of the model or I simply knew I could not tackle decently. Still, I am pleased with this first attempt and will put the experience gained to good use in future models.

  18. US Brig Syren by WalrusGuy Updated

    This is my second build. I used the kit's basswood for this ship. The quarter gallery and jollyboat were scratch built. It was my first time serving the ropes for the standing rigging, and all the ropes and most blocks were upgraded from Syren Ship Model Company. Overall, it was a blast building her!

  19. Viking longship by Cathead - Dusek - 1:35 Updated

    This is an upgraded version of the basic Dusek kit, adding a lot of extra detail to better represent such a vessel, including replacing the deck with individual planking, adding cargo, improving the shields, making a paneled sail from bond paper, and so on. Details can be found in the build log .
