At a Glance: A Snapshot of MSW Members' Current Projects

68 posts in this topic

Have you ever browsed through your favorite build to see what the full build looks like at the present time?

 

Have you ever wondered what else is being built on MSW 2.0, it may be a kit, scratch, R/C, card or plastic, or any other material, including digital reconstruction.

 

I am inviting all members to post a latest photo of their build (side elevation)and a link to that build, so everyone can see what it looks like, and give others an idea of what else is going on.

 

I am not trying to create a multitude of build logs under one topic, just photo’s so we can all see what is going on.

 

This will possibly help others in deciding on what to build next

 

Anyone interested?

Skipped a few essential rigging steps and just jury rigged the sails on my scratch built Providence model. Had to get an idea how they would look. All down now and figuring on what sequence to rig the model with the sails. I'm thinking  bending the sails on, off the model, get them in position on, and do the running rigging , then the main mast shrouds, then the head sails etc..

 

Any body do some of the running rigging before the standing rigging ? I'm thinking it would be easier to get lines belayed as the access to those points would be more open.

Oliver Cromwell (1777 24 gun frigate), fully framed model (with simplified framing, Hahn style), scale 1:48

Deck clamps are installed, "exposed" side is finished with tung oil. The other side would be fully planked, so no finish there.

Ahoy Mates

 

Now that the election is over it's full speed ahead on the USS Bluebird scratch build in 1/96 scale. I now have the bow completed with the hawes holes and all the side wear strips in place. Next is the breakwater just ahead of the gun plate form.

 

I am waiting for my next 3D printed parts from Shapeways to be shipped. 

 

Then it's onto making up the bridge and the Lewis gun tubs and smoke stack.

I set out to build multiple Ship In Bottle models of the three masted square rigged ship Wavertree, which I worked on last summer. I wanted to make these as gifts for some of the other riggers I got to know, as a gesture of appreciation and friendship since I will likely not see most of them again. I used discarded plastic airline liquor bottles as I had seen them used in other Ship In Bottle models and it struck me this would be a decent way to make a bunch of models on an assembly line. if they were "real" bottles they would take too long. I wound up making nine of them.

After nearly two years, a major milestone was hit last night - the hull and decks are completed and I can start the masting and rigging in earnest. As you can see, i have already started on the bow sprit.

Constellation was jury-rigged in October to go out for a sail,

...but at the moment she's un-rigged and getting details done; like having the "folding bulwarks" installed fore and aft.

Pride's on the shelf as I figure out some control details that are making me scratch my head.

Macedonian just got moldings and quarter galleries.  Channels are made but not ready to be permanently installed.  Lower masts were just made.
