  1. Hello Ship Mates I thank you all for all of your visits to my build log, also for your very kind words and nice comments. Back in the Old Ship Yard after our very bad discovery on the loss of the curative on the Stern Gallery Windows, the little fellows and I riped our all of the center Counter Timbers and cut new ones and replaced the Transom timbers. Somehow we overlooked the compound angle of these Counter Timbers and installed them directly from our bending, drying jig that did not work, resulting in a very flat and almost straight window curvature. We are rather pleased with the new look and now we can move on to the Keelstone, ENJOY. Regards Lawrence
  2. Hello Mark I thank you for your visit to my build log, also for your very kind words and comments. Not a lot of activity in the Old Ship Yard today. Went out to our back shed and converted our garden tractor over from a lawnmower to a snow blower. Then I cleared a path to the shed, cleaned the house walks and cleaned our double driveway, followed by a short nap and a late dinner. That transom did not look all that bad, it was just the window curvature that was too flat and seemed to look out of place. Just have the top beam over the windows to contend with. I did get the spacing a lot closer this time so all was not lost, ENJOY. Regards Lawrence
  3. Hello Ken Thanks for your visit to my build log. Yes, the yard does look ok to look at but then again I do not have my garden tractor converted over to a snow blower as yet so it looks like this will happen today, dragging me out of the Old Ship Yard, ENJOY. Regards Lawrence
  4. Hello Ship Mates I thank you all for all of your visits to my build log on the little ship the Oliver Cromwell. Back in the Old Ship Yard, we made a bad discovery yesterday somehow we lost the curvature for the windows and ship's nameplate, it was just to flat, so we tour out the Inter Counter timbers and recut them, they are now reinstalled and we do have the lower plank redrying that will be glued in after an hour or so when it excepts the new curve. I looked out the Old Ship Yard window this AM and saw that we got around 3" or 7.5 cm. I thought it looked rather nice and thought that I would share it with you all, ENJOY. Regards Lawrence
  5. Hello Kevin Welcome to my build log on the little ship the Oliver Cromwell, a POF build. Yes, victory seems like yesterday. I truly enjoyed that build and everyone who sees her is very impressed with her. She was a learning experience and that is for sure, so very many parts that came in the kit I did not use as I felt they were not fitting for such a Glorious fighting Ship. All of this has pushed me away from the kits builds to a scratch build ship, leaving me huge amounts of space where I can all of the details that I believe a ship should have. Kevin, you did not finish your HMS Victory as you got sidetracked with Bismarck and a few others, I can see no problem at all with that, after all, it is a very enjoyable hobby that has many roads to follow, ENJOY Regards Lawrence
  6. Hello Ship Mates Thanks for all of your visits to my build log. Back in the Old Ship Yard the little fellows have cut and preshaped the two Outside Counter Timbers and remover the paper pattern and laded out the Counter Timbers for the cutting and installing the 3 Transoms Timber beams for the windows and also the Quarterdeck along with the nameplate. This for sure does not look like a lot on my drawings but to build them turned into another story. Now I must prebend these arched timbers to fit across the Counter timbers and then notch these out so that they will accept the cross member timbers, ENJOY. Regards Lawrence
  7. Hello Ship Mates Once again I wish to thank you all very much for all of your visits to my build log on the little ship the Oliver Cromwell, Also for your very kind words and nice comments. Back in the Old Ship Yard the little fellows and I have been busy building and installing the 6 Inter Counter Timbers. These we have left the paper patterns attached so that the notches in them for the cross beams that support the windows and also the Quarter Deck Transom. We have also cut out the two Outer Side Counter Timbers from 3 layers of cherry wood that we laminated together to achieve the required thickness required to fit the outer hull of the Oliver Cromwell, ENJOY. Regards Lawrence
  8. Hello Mike Yes, that is for sure, I have done just a bit of flairing but there is a lot more to come, ENJOY. Regards Lawrence
  9. Hello Ship Mates I do thank you all for all of your visits to my build log on the little ship the Oliver Cromwell. Back in the Old Ship Yard the little fellows and I have been rather busy building and installing the Wing Transum along with its smaller cousins. Between our household duties and running around we have pre-tapered them on the outside this time, they still need to be touched up a bit yet but we do believe that we will continue onward with more of the fun stuff. We have been looking at the two Outside Counter Timbers so we believe that this will be our next challenge. ENJOY. Regards Lawrence
  10. Hello Ship Mates Once again I thank you all very much for all of your visits to my build log, also for your very kind words and nice comments. Back in the Old Ship Yard, the little fellows and have reached a major milestone in our Oliver Cromwell. We have installed all of the aft cants frames along with the Top Wing Transom. We have pre-shaped the inside but not the outside as yet, this will come a bit later Now I must saw up some Cherry Wood to be able to build the other 5 lower Transoms, ENJOY. Regards Lawrence
  11. Hello Popeye -- Dennis I do thank you very much for your very kind words and nice comments. Yes, this build has been a learning experience and that is for sure, but then again it is something that I have been thinking of for a long time. I can only hope that I can muster up enough skills to do the Oliver Cromwell justice. Yes, my fun is about to begin as this little ship has so very much detail, ENJOY Regards Lawrence
  12. Hello Patrick Well, I have finally crawled out of my little corner the Old Ship Yard and started to look around the MSW Form. You never fail to amaze me with your very fine detail along with all of those great ideas that you are adding to your Genesis, seeming so effortless. Great job as she sure is looking supper, ENJOY. Regards Lawrence
  13. Hello Popeye-- Dennis Thanks for your visit to my build log. Today is a milestone as I have added the last of the cant framing ribs and also added the top wing transom. I have not as yet started to shape it as yet but will do so when the rest are applied. Things seem to be moving much faster these last couple of days, so the build is very much more relaxing, ENJOY. Regards Lawrence
  14. Hello Moab I thank you for your visit to my build log. I am always pleased to have a new crew member on board, please pull up a chair and join in the fun of building this fine little ship. Your words and comments are always welcome here. This is my first attempt at a POF build, it is something that I always wondered if I was capable of doing so. Up to this point, it has been a learning experience. But from now on it will be almost like a POB build, it is just that I want to add a lot of detail especially to the inside of my ship. I do suggest that you give it a try, ENJOY. Regards Lawrence
  15. Hello Carl Thank you very much for your visit to my build log, also for your kind words and nice comments. Yes I do believe that you are correct on that one, those little Hausebeams sure were a challenge, still have to sand and tapper them a bit more as I have only pre-tapered them with some corse cut needle files that seem to have done a fair job of it, ENJOY. Regards Lawrence
