  1. Hi all, After a lifetime of building model railroads, model planes, cars, bikes and everything else, I've jumped into model ships. More of a return, having built a grand total of 1 ship 30 years ago, a Bluenose II. I remember buying the kit at a hobby show in Toronto in November of '87 and telling the vendor I intended to build it and give it to my father for Christmas. He said "This year?". He was right, he didn't get his ship for three years... Considering it's 25+ years old, it's stood up rather well, even survived a cat. Currently in Port Dover, Ontario. I own and operate a company that makes specialty tools for model railroaders and have been doing so full time for 15 years now. Last year we purchased a company that makes scale stripwood, again for the model railroad hobby and working with all that wood got me really craving a project from wood. So in a moment of impulsiveness, last month I bought a ship kit, The Corsair from OcCre. I'm a few weeks into it and really enjoying the challenge! To be honest I have not been challenged enough with model railroading as of late and was looking for something new to do. Also, as my day job for the last 15 years has been all trains all the time, I need something different to occupy my off time. Here is a link to my current model railroad project if you are interested... CNJ Bronx Terminal CNJ Bronx Terminal build on Facebook When I started the ship build I promised myself I would resist trying to improve on the kit. That lasted about 10 minutes... Having several laser cutters and a complete scale stripwood sawmill at my disposal it wasn't long before I started replacing items in the kit. I made some new deck planking, with pre-drilled holes on the laser to start with. Was pretty happy with how that turned out. Also replaced the few windows in the kit from cast metal to laser cut, which looks much better. Also made some wood wheels for the cannons, didn't really like the brass wheels included in the kit. Pretty happy with how the planks turned out, although in hindsight I made them a bit too narrow. Laser cut wood wheels for the cannons. The first layer of the hull is planked and am looking forward to doing the final layer. I'm learning a great deal from this group! Some very talented modelers and models here that I'm getting a lot of inspiration from! Looking forward to contributing in the future. Cheers! Tim Warris 20171030_120709.mp4
  2. Lisboa Tram and Diorama Occre

    This is what I did waiting for shipments of DeAgostinis Vasa: The lisboa Tram and the Diorama by Occre. My Iphone is not happy with the yellow color of the tram....
  3. Hi everyone, I'm trying to decide between the Corel Scotland and the OcCre Albatross as my first build. From what I've read, both are pretty good. Does anyone have any strong feelings or reasons I should pick one or the other. My priorities are detail, quality, and instruction quality. I'll definitely start a build log once I make up my mind and buy one. I discovered the hobby by stumbling into a store on my street looking for duct tape and then realizing it's the biggest modelling hobby store in Canada! I've been reading about it since. Thanks for your suggestions!
