AntonyUK posted a topic in Build Logs for SHIP MODEL KITSHi. This will be my next build. I purchased the kit from https://www.rocrimodellismo.com/en/static-display-wooden-model-kits/1151-santa-lucia-sicilian-cargo-boat-wooden-assembly-kits-model-boats-and-sailing-vessel-mantua-model-panart-sergal.html The reasons for this kit are the pleasing lines and simple construction. Found some good information on the ship. https://www.shipmodeling.ru/books/leudo Language selection is in the top right corner. Will post some pictures of the kit's contents tomorrow. At first glance the quality looks very good. Regards Antony.
AntonyUK posted a topic in Build Logs for SCRATCH SHIP MODEL PROJECTSHi. Its time for a new project.. Been looking at this for sometime now. I have made several trips to Korea and visited the war Museum in Seoul. This was my first encounter of this ship. There is a kit of this ship made by www.youngmodeler.com at 1/64 scale There are also a few on E-Bay by the same manufacture. There are no drawing of this ship and there are a lot of replicas made but most of them are very different. Very confusing. There are a few referrals to the Turtle ship here on MSW. including a Kit build by Wim500. Also lots of nice photos by Grimber. I intend to Build this @ 1/32 scale so the model will be big enough to include a bit of detail. Rule 1... No paint.. Rule 2.. Follow as much as possible the method of ship building as used in Korea. Lots of HELP wanted here. The main timber I will be using will be English Cherry as I have a vast stock of it. Other timber will be used to give contrast and looks. Most of the Timber is very thick on this ship. And the hull planking is pined downwards into the plank below.(very long tree nails) Will post a link to the information later. I am at the stage of just starting the build planning. and laying the hull base (No keel on this ship). Will be Building this in the Shed as its the only space big enough for the model and me. That's it for now. Thanks for looking in. Regards Antony.
My husband's graduate advisor built full hull, planked and completely rigged models from scratch. Forty years later we have concluded that the kits he enticed us to try will never be built. Maybe someone else will give them a go. There are two Modelismo Naval Seri Barcas de Pesca - the Laud,102, at 1:50 scale and 103, the Ballenera at 1:34 scale. Each has a roughly cut hull and deck, cloth sail(s) shrink wrapped fittings and instructions in Italian. We would like to sell these for $35 each. At a totally different skill and detail level is the Indescret series 65/5 made by Aeropiccola. The components are printed on balsa. It includes linen rigging lines, brass cannon, printed sails, cotton anchor rope, and various wooden dowels and square stock. An Engish translation of the assembly instructions (typewritten!) is included. There is some rubber band residue on the pieces which appears to scrape off pretty easily. We would like to sell this for $150. I have a paypal account for easy payment. Leslie McMaster, Austin, TX
Hello and welcome to the build log of my first attempt on wooden ship modeling. I was asked by a few members of this forum to re-create the build log and I finally got to it so I hope it will be useful to some people building this kit. I will mostly upload only pictures, hopefully no words will be necessary. In case you would like to ask please feel free to do that. I have decided to bulid the Golden Star model that was suggested to me by a local seller of wooden ship kits. Before that I have tried to build a few plastic ship models but the wooden ships attracted me very much. Build of the kit took me around 10 months and I really enjoyed the work. So here finally are the pictures. Starting with the assembly and first layers of planking...
