  1. 18th Century Longboat question?

    Thank you! The speed and accuracy of the answers on this forum is amazing.
  2. 18th Century Longboat question?

    Hi everyone. I know I am quoting an old post. I have my first boat on order and it is the 18th century longboat starter kit. I would love to read the build logs of the group build but I can not find them. The mentioned URL http://modelshipworld.com/index.php?/forum/51-msw-group-build-of-an-18th-century-longboat/ gives me an error. I found a forum section about archived items (see https://modelshipworld.com/index.php?/forum/59-general-info-about-group-projects-on-model-ship-world-and-past-groups-archived/ ) but there is only 1 topic. Are the build logs still available and if so, can anyone give me a link? Thank you! Edit: please forget my newbie question. I tried some more searching and suddenly I have a whole list of build logs of the longboat. I must have done something wrong...
  3. Hello, This is my first post. I am eagerly awaiting the delivery of my first ship and am browsing the forum to prepare myself for the build and learn from the experienced builders. In the ninth picture of Jim's work area I noticed a tool that is used to hold a mast. Can anyone tell me what the name of that tool is? I attached a cropped picture so you know what I am talking about. Thank you in advance for your time and help.
