  1. U-96 (Das Boot) 1:144 by Revell Updated

    Here is the finished U-96 collectors edition I recently got… you bet I watched Das Boot while working on this…
     
    But I love how this one turned out, sadly the effort I put into the grease/ oil stains doesn‘t really show on the pictures. (Also half the colors I needed gave up 3/4 of the way in… so I had to go out and buy new ones…).
     
    I quite enjoyed building a submarine and do have plans for two more, maybe a diorama later on of a submarine in action.

  2. USS The Sullivans (DD-537) in 1/350 Scale Updated

    The kit is from Trumpeter.   Overall, I found it to be a disappointing kit with many out of scale and/or poorly molded parts.   Many of the parts did not fit together well.  No photo-etched brass fret was included with the kit.   
     
    I improved the kit by customizing it with the following:
     
    Black Cat Model's 1943 Square Bridge Fletcher detail set.  This set provides all the weapons, directors, whale boats, rafts and a multitude of small fittings. 3D-printed smokestacks from Shapeways.com. 3D-printed CIC, bridge deck and pilot house from Model-Monkey.com.   The existing kit pieces are really bad. Gold Medal Model's Fletcher Class photo-etched detail set. Infini Model's Fletcher Class mast detail set.   While this made some of the Gold Medal Model parts redundant, the brass mast was a significant upgrade. Main deck nonskid is photo-etched brass from L'Arsenal.  
    I built the ship in her 1943 configuration in which she experience the Pacific War.   The ship is painted in Measure 21-the Navy Blue System.  All vertical surfaces are navy blue 5-N without exception and all horizontal surfaces are deck blue 20-B.   The 1943 mixture for navy blue was lighter than the 1945 shade.

  6. RMS Titanic 1:1200 by Revell Updated

    Totally didn‘t forget to upload this… oops…
     
    Anyways the smoll 1:1200 Titanic I built which will be used in a diorama soon. Also it is not glued onto the stand, since it will be placed in the resin (water), which also means I had filled the holes in the hull (which were to snap onto the stand).
     
    Not gonna lie… this smoll one turned out a lot better than the big one I had made in (I think) 2014.
     
    Bonus: last image is the iceberg I am working on… gotta bake and paint it before I start the actual diorama.

  9. Light Vessel 114, Fire Island Updated

    Light Vessel 114 was built in Portland, Oregon and launched in 1930.  It was stationed about nine miles off Long Island, New York, lighting the path to New York City and supplementing the Fire Island Lighthouse.  It remained on that station until 1942.  After that, it served on several other stations until being decommissioned in 1971.  It was scraped in 2007.
     
    The 1/93 scale model was based on Lindberg's "Nantucket" lightship plastic kit with scratch-built deck houses, smoke stack, rails, and other fittings, to conform with photographs of the original vessel in 1930.

  10. Hanse Kogge von Bremen, 1390 - by Catopower - Shipyard Updated

    I built this model from a laser-cut card kit from Shipyard. This is my second completed card ship model. 
     
    This has been a fun and interesting build. With Shipyard's laser-cut card kits, all the parts are pre-cut for you, except the mast and yard, which are fashioned from wooden dowels, like a wooden ship model kit. Because the card stock provided has no printing on it, unlike the printed paper kits, where you cut out all the parts yourself, the builder has to paint the model to simulate wood. But, paint is provided, along with mixing ratios, and instructions on how to create the wood-like finish. The sail also has to be painted, but the sail material is provided, pre-cut, and pre-marked with the outlines of the painted areas.
     
    I built the model over the course of about a year, though I took a long break in the middle of it all. 
     
    The completed 1/72-scale model is about 13-1/2" long.

  11. Tirpitz 1:570 by Revell Updated

    Anyways I have finished the 1:570 Tirpitz and this is one of the best so far. One small part was broken and couldn‘t be fixed.
     
    More larger parts were also broken but I was able to glue them back together using the uv resin glue and super glue. 
     
    I did use the more recent 1:1200 Tirpitz instructions for colors, rigging and the camo since the 1984 one was very unclear. The flags that came with Enterprise worked very well and fit perfectly.

  16. Zulu BF1479 Fidelity - Scottish Herring Drifter - Vanguard Models Kit - 1:64 Updated

    Model built by EKE - Erik K. Evens
     
    This model was build from the wonderful “Lady Isabella” kit from Vanguard Models, designed by Chris Watton.  I chose to depict the Zulu “Fidelity”  (BF1497), launched in 1904.   Fid elity is documented in a beautifully-drawn set of plans preserved by the Royal Maritime Museum Greenwich.  
     
    Length – 600mm ( 23.6 “)
    Width – 100mm ( 3.9″)
    Height – 387mm ( 15.2”)
     
    This was my first model ship build.  Many thanks to all of my new friends here at MSW, who stood by me during this most enjoyable journey.  I’m grateful for your guidance, and to have been able to tap into your knowledge and experience.

  22. African Queen by Ras Ambrioso - Billings Boats - 1/24 scale Updated

    I built this R/C steam launch in eighties. As you may see in the photos I changed the design a bit to make room for the electronics. The engine provided in the kit, a single oscillating cylinder, was not capable of moving the boat so I cheated a bit by installing an electric motor and covered it with the structure that you can see in the photos that provided a good spot for the steering wheel. The captain is one my tokens from the time I purchased my first real boat. The second photo shows the kit's version with the seating arrangement and the canvas sun cover.

  23. H.M.S Orestes / Mars (1781) - Caldercraft, 1/64 Updated

    This was my second completed wooden kit, started after the fiasco of trying to build a Bounty.
    Made this for my Father's 65th birthday - though he had to wait four years for it to be finished! (2012-2016)
    Apologies, not many pictures of it complete, though a few detail shots.

    This was my first plank on frame kit, built 2007-2010.  I did a build log on MSW 1.0, but obviously that is long gone!
