  1. Friends, I have come to a stage where one of my ships are at a stand still, due to missing parts. Meanwhile I do have a pleasant problem, of which kit to go next. All the presented has been built by others with amazing outcome. After the build the of the Longboat, I feel confident to take on any of the presented kits. One of them is really calling me as I have extra material. But that shouldn't be part of the equation. As usual, input is very welcome. Thank you all
  2. I am currently finishing fairing the hull on my Confederacy. I am satisfied with the fairing but I still have some charing on some frames. How important is it to remove all the charing as is specified in the manual? I built the Syren with an acurate color scheme. I am considering doing the same on this project rather than just staining it but have had little success in finding color sceme information. Any info on the proper scheme would be appreciated. Was the Confederacy hull coppered below the waterline? If so, what is reason this model is not so covered? Thank you all for your patience and help. Now if I can only get the pictures sized correctly. Cheers, Harley
  3. Could the constitution mast/ rigging plans be used for the confederacy since they are both frigates? I cant find anything on the confederacy mast plan. Or is there a sister ship to the confederacy?

  5. Folks, While surfing the Web, I stumbled against a project which is dear to my heart: a fully rigged Confederacy! Apparently, a very skilled modeler from North Carolina, Dave, has built the model as an Admiralty Model and added a full rigging with all masts and yards. I have looked at all the models built by Dave and am truly impressed and in awe with the quality of his models and the number of ships that he built. I invite you to look at more of his work under A few full shots of the Confederacy in all its glory: Fantastic work. Congratulations Dave. Yves PS: By the way, if anybody can give me more information about Dave and where he lives, I'd love to meet him. His Blog does not provide any clues.
  6. I am posting this note to let folks know that I have figureheads in stock for the Confederacy. I just received a new batch of cast copies. They are resin and cast in one piece. See below. The guy who made them for me did an excellent job. I will give him a bit of a Just in case anyone needs resin casting done. In addition I also have the six pounder and twelve pounder cannon available and in stock. These two sizes will fit other kits as well. I know many who have bought them for the Amati Fly etc. In addition to that I have some small swivel guns. See the photos and attached PDF files for their exact sizes. The price for the figurehead is $13 12 pounder cannon are $3.50 Ea. 6 pounders are $3 swivels are $2.25 Please send me a PM if you are interested in purchasing any of these items. Shipping will depend on where you live. Probably $5 for within the US and more for international orders. Chuck cannon-swivelguns-winchelsea.pdf

  8. So as I plan for my upcoming build of Chuck's Confederacy, does anyone know of her original color scheme? Was she tarred black on her hull? I saw somewhere someone saying she was white-ish below the waterline (some kind of preservative) as copper plating was't done on US Navy ships when she was built. I found this image on the net which shows A LOT of yellow ochre on her. Is any of this close to correct? Chuck has some black areas on his model, are these just artistic? Anyway, thanks for reading and any info you can provide. Hopefully Chuck will see this and respond.
