  1. This is my second ever build so I am a learner. I am busy working hard and have three kids so build progress will also be slow. I chose the Maid because it seemed like a pretty simple cheap kit to cut my teeth on. I am going with a slightly unhistorical colour scheme, inspired by Clayton Osterling's Experiment (See here: I would welcome feedback, encouragement and advice. Thanks! But despite being new to this, I am totally hooked.
  2. Gday all, this will be my second build but first log, wasn't really sure on posting one for the first through my baby steps, seing all the amazing builds her got me a bit intimidated... I have come to realize from seeing how helpful the input can be from other members, to improve my techniques and general knowledge of the ships, it will be very beneficial for me to post one for this build. i received this kit as a (very hinted towards) Christmas present and have been upgrading my workspace ever since to accommodate building it after gluing all the frames into the keel i noticed a kick in the stern, i tried to steam it out best as posible and rasp more off the effected side starting to glue and nail on the hull planking is an experience seing as this is my first single layer ship, i will be coppering the waterline and painting above so it wont be too bad i purchased copper rudder hinges and 100 copper plates to test from modelshipyard, but am a bit unsure to the exaggerated rivet heads on the plates and am up to sugestions or a correction, also would anyone have what would be closest to correct dimensions for the plates, im unsure that i got the right ones :S
  3. These are photos of an old model that has been in an attic for many years. I'm told the model was purchased in Germany in the 1920's! I do not know the history of the black and white photo but it is associated with this damaged model and is likely a promotional shot? I'm going on the assumption that its a photo of the same subject if not the same model, but maybe its just a random model photo? Both the photo and the model have an American flag. My first pass at making an identification is that the ship depicted is American and dates from the 1840's. I'm about to get into some more biblio searching and see what I can come up with. Wouldn't it be nice to have a clear photo of the bow or stern and be able to simply read off the ships name? Any insights anyone here on Model Ship World can offer will be appreciated!
  4. Cutty Sark part 1 Hi, During his stay in London visit on Cutty Sark is a pleasant duty.
  5. Hi I just became a member today. This is my first model Flying Fish from Model Shipways. I plan to build to specifications . A copper hull and presented with full sail including Stunsls. I would like any modeler to make suggestions on my build. I am new and any information or guidance will be welcome. I'm sure some of my Technics will be imaginative and will invoke discussion.
  6. Hey, I just got hands on a model vessel. It's a Clipper from the 19th. century. Can you help me to find out which model it is exactly? I maybe want to sell it..what is it what it is worth by guess? Thank you for help!!
  7. Total newb here, waiting for my backordered model to arrive. While going through the standard qual program, will be pestering y'all with lots of questions, hope y'all don't mind. Reasons... While I've always been in awe of well done wooden ship models I've never thought about trying my skills with that, until my wife brought out her inherited model from her dad that needs a lot of refurbishment and total rerigging and she wants me to do that. Of course it's a clipper.... So I'm going to try to get my skill level up to tackle that big job, the model is well over 42" long. Anywho, thank you all for letting me join, truly. Tom
