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

Recommended Posts

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?

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.

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.

Well... life gets in the way and I've dealing with my Admiral's health issues.   But in between times, I've removed the frame extensions.  She's looking more like a frigate now.

My 1:32 scale eighteenth century longboat in progress. She looks pretty rough now but she'll clean up ok. Today I plan to add longitudinal battens to support stretchers, and then breasthook and transom knees. Model will be rigged and spars, blocks and deadeyes have been made.

Greetings ladies and gents.

This is a venetian carrack of 1445 lovingly reconstructed with hanks of hair and old bones and presently in the rigging phase.

I've gotten more planking done on my Cheerful.  The starboard side is complete, now it's on to the last half of the port side.

Hi folks

 

had so little time the past weeks to build up my Fregatte Berlin. But the last week I finished the hull and installed the guns. Next will be to color the decorations and fix them. After this I will start to create the masts. They are not rods but square-shaped timber and I have to shape them. Not sure if I like this, we will see.

 

Cheerio

Greetings,

 

Spent the winter building Amati's Coca merchantman, then took a break and machined the tiny steam launch engine which, to my amazement, taking into account

my minimal machining skills, works! Now, back to planking....

Hello. Just finished with tree nailing and the transom on my Sherbourne. Sitting and planing next step that will be the planking of the hull. I don't know if I dare to try clinker planking.

Had a great time at the IPMS Seattle Show yesterday. The Mary Rose cmae threw the 340 mile drive up to Seattle and back without any damage or lose lines,or any hands at the show. Came back with a couple of things to go with the Mary Rose when it goes into a case. 1st Place Ribbon for Non-Powered Ships All Scales,and Best Of Show Ship Award. Yes this was an IPMS Show and Pickels and I beat out all the sub's,battleships,freighters,destoyers and a great scratch built North Sea Anchor Tender in 1/100 scale. It was a great show with over 1,000 models entered. And they had record attendance yesterday. Check out their web site at IPMS Seattle. I think it will take a couple days or more before they have photos of the show.

 

Here's the Mary Rose safe at home with what I brought back to share with my shipyard help-Pickels.

Thanks to Wood from Jason at Crown Timberyard,Deadeyes,miniature rope From Chuck at Syren that made my build even better.

Beginning to bend on sail on my 1/48 scale Yawl Dulcibella. Up till now it's been months of manufacturing sub assemblies and now I can start installing them. Also I'm realizing the Belaying Plan I worked up long ago needs more reconsidering as the realities of placement manifest.
