  1. Good afternoon, colleagues! I bring to your attention the test assembly of the new woodenkit from "MasterKorabel" Scale 1/72 The tender "AVOS" (in russian тендер "Авось") is the first ship of the Russian-American Company that was built in Alaska in Novo-Arkhangelsk in 1806 (now is Sitka, USA) The total length of the model is 42 centimeters 8 guns - 3 pound. Archival drawings of the tender "Avos" not preserved, unfortunately. But the Russian tenders are very similar to the English tenders. Russian shipbuilders used the English school. Therefore, designers "MasterKorabel" took as a basis one of the drawings from National Maritime Museum (Greenwich). In the basis - is Arrow (1823), a 10-gun single-masted Cutter, as designed and built by Captain Hayes. Tender "AVOS" was smaller in size than the "prototype". This drawing has undergone a change in length and width to match the basic dimensions of the tender "AVOS". As a result, the basis for a new theory and new circuits of hull. In short, this is a complete reconstruction of designers "MasterKorabel". So, here are the first photos
  2. Can anyone direct me to a set of plans for a two-masted schooner that would be suitable to represent the Civil War mortar schooner, C. P. Williams. In his book, Warships of the Civil War Navy, Paul Silverstone indicated she was a 210 ton ship 103’ 8” long (no indication as to whether this is waterline length, or between perpendiculars), 28’ 3” beam, and with a draft of 9.’ These dimensions are confirmed by other sources, so they are probably correct. The National Archives has no plans for this ship. The Archives does have plans for the Revenue Cutter Joe Lane of the same era, but while her length of 100’ 4” (LWL) and draft of about 9 feet aft is close, her breadth is only 23,’ and, not surprisingly, her tonnage is much too low, at 153.3. I have been thinking of redrawing the plans of the Joe Lane to 28 feet wide, but would much prefer to obtain plans of a schooner that more closely resembled the C. P. Williams.
  3. Hello to all members of this forum. I'm new to the ship modeling world. At the age of seventy i thought it would be a good idea to start a new hobby. A few days ago i purchased the Occre Trinidad cross section which will be delivered in a few weeks, in the meantime i am surfing the net for information and found this great forum which gave me a lot of information. One question keeps popping up in my mind, a lot of people go to an incredible level of detail but on a cross section of any wooden ship or windmill i came across nobody ever planks the underside of decks or floors. Is there a specific reason for that ? Looking forward to learn a lot more at this forum. All the best Greelt
  4. Good afternoon, dear colleagues! I want to bring to your attention YouTube videos for assembling one of woodenkit by Master Korabel - Cannon Jolle 1801 1/72 scale art.MK0202 The videos were made by Alexey Vikulaev The video has subtitles and in YouTube you can choose a translation into any language. Pleasant and useful viewing, Eugene Part 2 Part 3 Part 4 Part 5

    Please take a survey

    There is never a lack of suggestions for new kits. The key point is to try and make kits that people want. The thread on MSW about kits you wished were made was helpful, but kind of all over the place. We have put together a list of potential kits we think might be interesting. So fill out the survey and send it to us by whichever means you like! 2014 Survey.pdf
